  • Huh? Feb 12, 2019

    By Jaybar123
    I don’t understand all the negative reviews, issues, and complaints from folks. Honestly, it is what it is. I’m a small-time player, throwing like $5-$10 lineups in, winning like 30% of the time, lol, and for some reason I keep coming back! Ugh. Makes the games more interesting, keeps me in the “know” with my fave sports players/teams/stats, and for me I’m just as nervous with $5 on a bet as I would be with $10K so it’s been cool. Anyone having all these complaints is either salty because they lost a million dollars, is one of those players that pits like 50 different bets and they’ve confused themselves, or they’re pulling all sorts of shady stuff. The app is exactly as advertised. Simple as that. You shouldn’t even need to “contact customer support” to be quite honest. And the one time I did, they responded within 24hrs to inform me that the reason my bet(contest) disappeared was because it wasn’t full. It was my own mistake that I made only because I was very new. I never had another issue. If your looking into this app you probly have a good idea what it is, like I did, and it’s been very straightforward. As for the others...quit whining and just play!

  • Awesome even for a casual sports fan!!! Dec 3, 2018

    By Tgunn8705
    I watched sport is much is possible but I just absolutely love this app even if you don’t watch sports every day all you have to do is study the research they give you and make the right decision and a little bit of luck you’ll be winning money in no time! I’ve never had more fun I just signed up this year in Oct and I’ve never watched so many football games In my life! NBA fantasy is amazing as well so many points I love it, the one game show down captain mode is awesome can’t tell you how much DraftKings has changed watching sports for me And even if you don’t wanna spend money you can sign up and try out for events for free....plus they have $.25 events and I’ve actually won money in those $.25 quarter jukebox contests quite a bit easy you’d be surprised .....just try it out I’m telling you you won’t regret it you have nothing to lose it’s free to sign up and free to play on thurs and Sunday theres a free contest to enter and win real money in the NFL Thank you dress pants for making my NFL season in NBA season that much better I can’t wait to try out fantasy baseball over the summer

  • Better than FanDuel in my opinion Aug 31, 2020

    By TheOneAndOnly7735
    I’ve been using only FanDuel for the past 5-6 years or so and hit big a few times but that was a few years ago. If you don’t have enough in the bank to put in the full 150 entries you’re basically out of the running unless you get very very lucky. But with DraftKings they run some large tourneys with a 20 entry max which opens it up and evens out the playing field drastically! It makes it easier for a decent dfs player like myself who can’t throw thousands into it and hour and hours to fill those hundreds of lineups a fighting chance to use my skills and knowledge to at least have an opportunity to be in the top 1% every once in a while. In FanDuel’s 150 entry tourneys it’s impossible to outplay the “big dogs” with all those entries being built by a computer and no human brain or heart lol. DraftKings at least gives you a chance to hit big which in my opinion makes them the better site to put your money into. I have recently in the past few weeks taken all my funds out of FanDuel’s and been strictly playing on DraftKings and plan do you so going forward.

    The app is fine, but Draftkings in itself has very unreliable scoring. On September 24, 2020, James Robinson of the Jacksonville Jaguars caught 2 touchdowns. I had him in my lineup. I got ZERO points. That is correct. I got ZERO. I only had a dollar on the game because this was only my third week playing. I was trying out DK. I am glad I was only testing it out. Consider yourself warned if you are reading this. I Screenshot everything and will certainly warn my friends about it.

    App is not very reliable. For two weeks in a row I cannot access NFL classic games. I even tried on my tablet. It just freezes up and then restarts my app to do the sequence all over again. I NEVER had issues like this on FanDuel. You think there would be an update to fix this problem, but this is the second week.

If I was any place outside of my home network I couldn't update players nor was I able to complete rosters that I already paid 4.

  • App is great but games are questionable Sep 25, 2018

    By Addelynn12
    If I give a rating for just the app, it’s a 4 but if I rate the games, experience and the results, I’ll give it a 1. If you want to put only $3 in a game that pays $50,000, don’t even try. There’s people who make multiple entries, like 200, and they’re very smart and put just about any lineup combination you can think of. I seriously doubt someone actually thought that a few specific WR’s in the SAME LINEUP from last week would perform like they did. Not mentioning any names..Robert Woods, Calvin Ridley and Kenny Stills. Would you put those WR’s in your lineup to win $50,000? I didn’t think so. But, someone did. Actually..a lot of people did. Which makes me feel DraftKings isn’t real...and/or multiple entries is the only way to win. It’s impossible to win big money unless you spend big money and do 200 entries. It’s not fair to the casual player whatsoever. My advice for the casual player is to find the games that don’t allow multiple entries, doesn’t cost much to play and doesn’t pay much to the winner. Start out small, do your game rules research and you might like it. DraftKings is strictly designed and created for the “high rollers” if you ask me. They need more game options for us broke fans to win more money but there’s no money in it for DraftKings so I doubt that’ll happen. Play at your own risk!

  2. Exclusive Leaderboards give a clear overview of your standings & prizes! Draft as many teams as you want for better chances of winning
  3. Customize contest details & challenge friends anytime you want! Agree on the rules and have fun accumulating valuable points

  • The will lock your account and take your money Feb 4, 2019

    By Fightin Fish
    I have been on the site for a while and have to say my experiences up until last weekend on the app were pretty good. Then they had a promotion where you get a free $40 head to head for signing someone up. So I signed up three people and had three $40 head to heads and was looking forward to the Super Bowl. Then on Sunday morning the my locked my account as well as the person I signed up, who I live with. So when I emailed them they said because we had used the same computer they took away my ALL of my free plays, which also cancelled them for the people I signed up. I explained we lived in the same house so used the same computer on occasion. We even both sent copies of our drivers license, cause they said they would unlock our accounts if we did. Not only did they not unlock it or give me any of my plays back they cancelled a play I had for NBA with my own money and never refunded it. Felt like my bank account was being seized and frozen for no good reason when all I was guilty of was bringing them three. Ew customer. Beware, they will strong arm and they don’t care how long you’ve been a loyal player.

  • Great fantasy options Jan 13, 2020

    By Tech no logical
    Like anything, nothing is perfect. But this is a pretty good option. There are great options for free play all the way to pretty much any level that you choose to play. The site, rules, and options are easy to find and understand. The 2 biggest drawbacks are not terrible. There are some who are highly invested, aggressive and tough to beat. Be careful with leagues that show 5-10% of members having 90% of the wins. Often these are the ones creating the matches. The winner take all is not something that most casual players should invest much into. The small glitches and delays are just something to get used to. The sire isn’t always updating your profile quickly. It seems to be slower than most would expect. Patience in receiving payouts and updating achievement goals is required. You get used to seeing the approximate timing of the accurate current details. But it has varied on when exactly all the information is updated and accurate.

  • Easily better than FanDuel but... May 14, 2020

    By IG:mikeylikey11
    DK app crashes ALL the time! Whenever I’m building a lineup and almost submitting it it just crashes and it does this ALL the time. Incredibly annoying. I hate that their system forces you to re choose what kind of tournaments you want like if you want cheapest to most expensive shown that way you have to tell it that every single time bc their system wants you to play their “promoted” games. Very annoying as well. FanDuel doesn’t do that and their app never crashes on me. But DK support is way better and I always win more money on DK for some reason. I just like the layout of DK better on the app. Their computer version is pretty terrible though and so is FD’s. I never go to the normal website unless I have to its complete trash. Stick with their app only. The website is just a total mess you’d think with all the rake their taking from players they could pay a decent programmer to fix these problems.

  • Good but could be better Dec 9, 2018

    By JBNEC11
    Being able to place bets on random games/sports is fantastic. Big or small it keeps you more invested in each game and makes the game more fun. My biggest complaint is that lineups are not always updated before the contest starts which is extremely frustrating when you do not have time to do research and ensure each player you have picked will be playing, I rely on DraftKings to update line ups so that I don’t buy players who are not playing. It’s frustrating to check a lineup 5 minutes before the start and have all the players ready to go and then as it starts they get marked as out! So now it feels like a complete waste of money as you can’t win when you have a man not earning points. I think if that happens and is a game time decision you should be allowed to substitute the player or have DraftKings do an auto-sub. Worst part of the game play!

  • Better than a league but... Nov 25, 2018

    By Beamteam26
    Love playing this but it could really use a few tweaks. I play the same group of guys each week... I love that the auto resize feature was added. However the run automatically weekly doesn’t work... which would make things so much easier. I have to turn that off each week. I should also be able to set some defaults. For instance, every time I set up a private contest for NFL Sun-Mon, I have to change the payout from whatever the default is, to winner take all. It would be nice I could choose what that defaults to. I should also be able to see at least a seasons worth of history on my private games. Would be cool to see what our winning records look like.

  • App could use some help Dec 26, 2018

    By Mrrags
    The DK app crashes quite often. When this happens while setting a lineup for a game it’s quite aggravating. The “rules” for such things as “achievements” are vaguely written and not very well explained. I am quite sure I’m not the only one who has found themselves on the losing end of poorly explained “rules”. Customer service could stand some improvement as well! I asked a very simple question and it took 5-6 writings of emails before I could get a reasonable answer. The first person didn’t even bother reading my email... they just rambled on with an answer totally unrelated to my question. The third and fourth person’s wanted screenshots in order to understand my question. Why are they in customer service if they need a screenshot to understand a simple question??? Lastly... I believe that many reviews on here are bogus... especially one written, recently, by someone calling themselves, “newbie”. What makes me think this way is that the review is more of a sales pitch for the site than a review by a “newbie”.

    Customer service has a long way to go on improving their response time to any problems/concerns/, issues that contestants may, & actually do bring to ur attention. I have tried a cpl times with little success in receiving a timely reply & didn't get a response of any kind on 1 issue with my account. Also, Still need to loosen up ur time constraints for entering a team & saving it for ur entry. If ur contest had multiple games involved, then an entrant should be able to enter/save a roster any time before & leading up to the start time of 2nd to last scheduled game of the day. Granted there may be 8 games in the contest, but entrant wud only have 2 games(4 tesms) to pick his roster from but at least he cud still put a roster in & retain a chance to be involved with ur contest. I have griped about that for a long time. If u don't understand point I'm trying to make, let me know. I be glad to go over it if don't understand my thinking

  • Pales in comparison to the full site Nov 30, 2017

    By zlionsfan
    Semi-live scoring: your score and rank updates most of the time, but your players’ totals and stats do not, which means you can never tell when your score is just staying the same and when the app just isn’t updating it. Of course, you can always download yet another app for that! Facebook would be proud - why bother with one quality app when you can make two apps with half the functionality? Landscape layout doesn’t show your entire NBA lineup at once; instead, it repeats your rank and score at the top, so if you touch your rank to reload, it scrolls back to the top and pushes your Flex player off the screen. Popups appear at the oddest times - a recap of your NFL action on Wednesday when you’ve already seen it on every other device you let DK touch. Do I want to turn on notifications? Heck no! Not for an app and a company that can’t manage them properly. You would think that a gambling company would make an app that makes its customers feel comfortable using their services. DK isn’t there yet.

  • Everything is good, until it isn’t... Feb 8, 2018

    By Yummmikins
    Beware... this is a fun app, it has increased my enjoyment of multiple sporting events, but understand what you are signing up for. If, as happened to thousands of us last night, a game gets cancelled, and you have players in that game, you’re SOL. Their “solution” was to provide free entry into a contest that would have cost $0.25 to join. So, I lost a good bit of actual money last night because a game was cancelled and they locked my players into a cancelled game. Even though it was a “late swap” contest, I couldn’t swap the players who weren’t able to play. So, they solve it by basically giving me a quarter.

  • Fun but stupid Oct 1, 2017

    By Bball Roberts
    The thing that really kills me about this is that you can’t edit your lineup even when the event is only ten seconds in. I did a 2 dollar contest and it said that three guys in my lineup weren’t going to play. So I tried to edit it but it wouldn’t let me because I was 10 seconds late. I was doing another fantasy football lineup and I quickly fixed it up and entered it and it said the contest had already started. I was like 20 seconds late!! They should make it so that once the first offensive play starts and a player picks up points the lineup is locked. Not before anything even happens.
