LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — DraftKings plans to expand in Las Vegas with a new office in the southwest part of the valley and expects to have more than 1,000 employees working there.

On Monday, the sports betting operator announced a 90,000-square-foot technology hub at UnCommons, a mixed-use community workspace expected to open in 2022.

DraftKings says the new office will be the second largest for the company and will closely model its Boston headquarters.

A press release says the office will have a "variety of entertainment and workstations" and more than "130 dedicated sports trading desks surrounded by full multimedia walls."

There will also be a 7,500-square-foot cafeteria and event space, a custom casino training pit, a 500-square-foot interactive putt-view putting green, private and public outdoor spaces, and mothers’ rooms. The release says employees will be able to get on-site haircuts, manicures and pedicures and have access to an on-site prayer suite.

DraftKings says its Las Vegas presence has grown 400% since its first office opening in January 2020.
