Here are the finalists for Online Sportsbook of the Year.

Caesars

Following the acquisition of William Hill, Caesars Sportsbook launched a new platform in August 2021. 

With the launch of the new platform, Caesars Sportsbook offered numerous aggressive promotions, including thousands of dollars for welcome bonuses and giving away NFL and NBA jerseys.

Caesars Sportsbook operates in 24 states and jurisdictions. 

It partnered with many notable professional franchises throughout those states, including the New Orleans Saints, New Orleans Pelicans, Arizona Diamondbacks, and more. Speaking of the Saints, their stadium is known as the Caesars Superdome. 

DraftKings

Most known for the daily fantasy sports platform, DraftKings Sportsbook has become one of the more recognizable online sportsbooks in the United States. 

Its mobile app is live in 18 states and also has retail-only betting in Mississippi and Washington. 

The online sportsbook provides players with a $1,000 deposit bonus. Several banking methods allow multiple ways to deposit and withdraw funds from your account. 

In September, DraftKings was named the exclusive odds provider for Thursday Night Football on Prime Video. 

FanDuel Group

Like DraftKings, FanDuel is also known for its daily fantasy sports platform. Its mobile platform is available in 16 states. 

Most players may know FanDuel Group and FanDuel Sportsbook for its partnership with The Pat McAfee Show. 

In August, the company announced its FanDuel TV network and became the first sportsbook to record a profit. 

CEO Peter Jackson said that FanDuel has a 51% market share in sports betting and recorded $22 million in earnings in Q2 before “taxes, depreciation, interest, and amortization.”
