DraftKings Parties With Kevin Hart and His Famous Pals

There's Ludacris, David Ortiz, Emmitt Smith and Tony Hawk (Caw! Caw!)

Kevin Hart's Super Bowl LVII party is just like yours or mine. 

Except that his guests include David Ortiz, Ludacris, Tony Hawk, Emmitt Smith, Julius Erving and Lisa Leslie.

Plus, this bash takes place during a half-minute Super Bowl commercial for DraftKings, with much of the celebrity chatter centered around free bets.

Developed with Hart's production team, this marks DraftKings' third straight year on the Big Game. What better way to celebrate than with lots of celebs and a Kev head made out of cheese? (Hawk steals the show, though. CAW! CAW!)

As the market grows at a rapid pace, sportsbooks make Big Game bids to stoke momentum and stamp their brand identities into the mainstream consciousness.

DraftKings is also teaming up with Molson Coors for a separate Super Bowl play, asking fans to guess the content of the latter's "top secret" commercial for a chance to win cash. Meanwhile, NFL great Rob Gronkowski headlines a kicky live event during the third quarter for DK archrival FanDuel.
