DraftKings Review

Review last updated on October 20, 2016

DraftKings is one of the leading daily fantasy sports providers in the world. This Boston based company started offering their services in 2012. They cater to US players from all but a few restricted states. The list of excluded state encompasses Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, Washington, and Hawaii.

Players from other states are allowed to register, deposit and withdraw money, and enter all available real money competitions.

DraftKings Basics: New Players

Opening a new account with DraftKings is a pretty straightforward process. When you click a "Sign Up" link, you will be taken to a form where you will enter your personal info, choose your unique username, and confirm you agree with the Terms of Use.

The only thing you need to be careful about is providing all correct information. If you happen to enter a wrong birth date or misspell your surname, for example, it can create unnecessary complications. Make sure you've double-checked everything before confirming your registration.

Banking Options

Once you've completed your registration, you will need to fund your account to enter the real money competitions. List of accepted deposit methods encompasses all major credit and debit cards like MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. PayPal can also be used, which is a really welcome option for many. Just remember that whatever option you use to deposit, it needs to be registered in your name.

You can use all the available methods for withdrawals as well. Withdrawals up to the total amount deposited dating back three months will automatically be sent to the deposit method used. Only after you've passed that limit you'll be able to use a different withdrawal method.

In the event your card has expired, contact DraftKings support to let them know before requesting a withdrawal. Withdrawals are processed Monday through Friday and, once processed, the money should land in your account in 2 to 8 days. Check withdrawals can take couple of weeks.

Available Competitions

Another aspect where DraftKings are ahead most of their competitors is their offer in terms of available sports and competitions. Regardless what is your sport of choice, DraftKings are likely to have it. From the NBA, NHL, MLB, and NFL to PGA, soccer, CFB, and even MMA, there is a variety of choices.

You can play contests against multiple players or against a single opponent (Head-to-Head). Additionally, players can create their own private leagues. This is a great way to gather your friends and play without any additional hassle. What's even better, you can even create a completely free competition and simply play for fun and pride.

Contests include Beginner, Tournaments, Head to Head, 50/50s & Double Ups, Multipliers and various Satellites and Qualifiers. 

User Interface & Mobile App

DraftKings offer their players very intuitive, yet highly functional graphic interface. Navigating through different sports and competitions is as simple as it gets and all important details about particular contest are available at a click of a mouse.

There are also some very neat options available like Late Swaps and Global Player Swaps which make life easier for more serious fantasy sports players. If you manage a lot of lineups at the same time, for example, the ability to swap a particular player across all of these lineups with a single click is very convenient.

As you could expect, DraftKings mobile app is available for Android and iOS phones and it lets you do pretty much everything you can do through the main site. The app is a great way to keep up with the action even when you are on the road.

A note for Android users: you will have to download the app directly from the DraftKings web page because it is not allowed on the Google Play (right of August 2016).

Bonuses and Support

DratKings offer a rather generous first deposit bonus for all new players. However, many players are confused by this offer and it has caused some unwarranted scam accusations.

In their bonus rules, the company clearly explains that the bonus is not given in one chunk but only released as player earn points. Points are earned by entering real money competitions. In this regard, DraftKings bonus is much more similar to online poker than casino bonuses, which probably confused many players. You have to play to receive the money.

If you have any questions about this or any other issue, you can always contact DraftKings support team and they'll usually be quick to answer. Unfortunately, the only way to get in touch with the company is via their support email as there is neither live chat nor phone available. Although they are usually very prompt to answer emails, this can be a bit frustrating if there is a more serious issue that needs resolving.
