The Passamaquoddy Tribe has two reservations at Motahkomikuk and Sipayik, located in Washington, Maine. Because the Indian Tribe is federally recognized, it allows DraftKings to become the official mobile sports betting provider of the Passamaquoddy Tribe.

The Passamaquoddy Tribe is excited to enter into a mobile sports wagering agreement with DraftKings. We couldn’t have landed a better organization in the mobile sports wagering arena, and we look forward to continued progress and investment for future growth in the state of Maine.
