DraftKings Review

by Gambling.com™

One-day fantasy sports has become a major force in the sports world in recent years, and DraftKings stands as one of the undisputed leaders in the fledgling industry. With extensive game offerings, generous bonuses, and an incredibly easy-to-use design, it’s easy to see why players continue to flock to the site.

Software

DraftKings looks inward to their own development team to provide the software used to bring millions the fun of daily fantasy. The youth of daily fantasy itself has created few third-party software providers as opposed to online casinos which over the years have found that dozens of prominent third-party software providers have experienced success.

As more operators grab a portion of the market and daily fantasy continues to grow, its almost a guarantee third-party providers will appear but until then, proprietary software dominates the industry.

Usability

DraftKings features a browser site that is very user-friendly, utilizing a layout that is incredibly easy to navigate. Finding the contest type and entry level that suits the player’s needs is just a few simple clicks away, as is account management.

For those accessing DraftKings from their mobile devices, dedicated Android and iOS applications are available offering similar ease-of-use in a way that is optimized for mobile technology.

Game Types

DraftKings specializes in daily and weekly fantasy sports contests in an impressive array of sports. Players can choose to compete in games focusing on NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, professional golf, professional soccer, college basketball, or college football.

The site uses the “salary cap” format common to other sites of the same stripe, where users are tasked with building a team that fits under a predetermined cap and then competing against other users for cash and prizes. Once players have chosen the sport they wish to compete in, they have a number of options in regards to game format. The game types offered are as follows:

DraftKings also has a section devoted to guaranteed games, which are contests where a certain amount of prize money is guaranteed even if there are fewer entrants than the maximum allowed, even reserving a section of their site solely to games of that type.

Payment Options

Users can deposit money into their DraftKings account using all major credit or debit cards, including MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Visa. In addition, players can add funds via PayPal, Dwolla, or gift cards from Visa, MasterCard, or American Express.

Winnings are added to player accounts within 24 hours of their game’s conclusion, and withdrawals are processed during regular business hours, and typically take between 2-7 business days to show up in the player’s account once after withdrawal proceedings have begun.

Players are given a number of options in regards to how they receive their withdrawal, whether having funds added back to the original funding card, their PayPal account, or having a physical check mailed to them. The latter option may take longer to reach users.
