DraftKings, the popular daily fantasy and sports betting juggernaut, entered the online casino space in New Jersey by partnering with Resorts Casino & Hotel back in December 2018.
Today, DraftKings is partnered with numerous entities in seven total states, including in New Jersey. We know its reputation on the sports betting and fantasy sports fronts, but how does DraktKings’ online casino stack up?
Let’s take a look.

DraftKings Casino NJ has a welcome offer that is unlike any other we’ve seen around the industry.
Strictly for new casino players, new users will get 24 hours of risk-free wagers up to $200 in net losses.
So, simply sign up, deposit some money and start playing. After 24 hours, this welcome offer will have expired and you will get back all net losses up to $200.
On top of that, players can also enjoy a 100% deposit bonus up to $500.
If you’ve ever made an account for DraftKings online sportsbook or daily fantasy sports, you will already have an account for the online casino.
However, if you’ve never used DraftKings and any of its platforms, the DraftKings registration process is four steps. In these steps you are required to create a username and password, give your email, and give personal information such as your name, address, date of birth and last four digits of your social security number. All of this information is necessary and you will be asked to disclose this on any other online casino as casino winnings are reported to the IRS.
Withdrawals are processed between 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

DraftKings Casino NJ is available on all platforms—desktop, mobile web browser, Android and iOS.
Starting with desktop, the casino can be accessed on the main screen along with the sportsbook and daily fantasy.
From here, there are three additional options: Games, Rewards, Help. The “Rewards” section features information about promotions and new player welcome offers. The “Help” section has links to FAQ pages with information on various things you may need help with and additional customer support services.
Now, back to the “Games” page. The games are filtered already by type, starting with Casino Games, and then the following:
All of the games in these categories are displayed in a slideshow manner, showing five per slide.
The mobile app is set up in a similar manner and there are no issues with lag or buffering whatsoever.
The games are displayed slightly different on the mobile app with different icons for the different game types that you can click on and then look at the offerings from there.
In addition to its own branded games, DraftKings Casino NJ partnered up with Evolution Gaming to assist in bringing this expansive library of games to the Garden State. Additionally, DraftKings has since enlisted other companies such as IGT for table games.
Upon clicking on a title, DraftKings Casino NJ will display the minimum and maximum amounts in which you can bet with the exception of live dealer games where all that information is given by the host of the event.
Return to Player Percentages is essentially this: For every $1 wagered on the site, how much of that $1 will eventually be paid back to players over time?
This can change not only from game type to game type, but from individual title to individual title.
DraftKings Casino NJ currently does not have a VIP Program. However, DraftKing Casino NJ does offer “Missions” which are various challenges to fulfill on the online casino and sportsbook alike. From here, players will receive rewards points which can be used to make wagers.
After clicking the Help button, you are brought to the FAQ page which has plenty of different sections that can be explored. This section alone should answer all your questions, but if not, of course, there are more options available.
There is a Contact button. From here, you can send an email message to them via the form on the page. Also, at the bottom of the page, there is a live chat option.
At the bottom of the page, you will find the link to the Responsible Gaming page.
On this page, there are links and contact information to various organizations and charities that can handle problematic gambling on a professional level.
Also, DraftKings Casino NJ does offer in-house services to help mitigate any further damage including ways to self-exclude yourself from the game and limits on deposits, session times and wagering.
There are also tips on how to set parental blocks to prevent children from online casino play.
DraftKings Casino NJ is atop the mountain in terms of not only an online casino, but the online wagering market in general. Of course, DraftKings has a ton of assets as a company, but DraftKings appears to understand what people want and it delivers through and through. There are really no holes in this online casino and it must be played if you’re in the New Jersey area.
