    Man draftkings has brought so much joy in my life. I have not placed first but I love the thrill of competing against people across the country. I’ve been playing about 4 years and I just won 1200 two weeks ago and it made me smile, I love the challenge of the game it’s simple yet extremely hard to win, you will get a range of emotions and what it really does is take team fans and turn them into NFL fans. The NFL really owes DraftKings a percentage because in order to be successful at this you have to watch all the games . I’m 42 and I stop playing games in my early 20s but DraftKings gives me that same feel like excited to get on and it really is not about the money it’s pride like one day I want to be able to say hey I was spot on this Sunday. DraftKings makes it so easy to get your winning as well. Like easy , easy so you will never have to stress on is this really a scam blah blah no it’s very much real. I got 7 people to sign up in the last year and they love it, I had to school them on the basic like dont tell people your lineups, start low like quarter games you know, But now they think they are experts it’s funny. DraftKings thank you for infusing energy in my life, I truly love this app

    I would like to know how I can collect some of my balance. I don't have PayPal, so I hope there is an alternative. This might go from fun, to not so much, right quick. I really enjoy your site, but only having one way to pay out, is a little out of touch. I hope this works out, since not much does these days.

    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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    TOO much security! I understand theres cash flow and they have to be protective of fraud, but i'm not much of a gambler & was just looking to have some fun. l planned to play for free or make the minimum deposit but even thats impossible. i keep getting stopped by the app & can't proceed to play. Guess i'll try something else. I didn't get to find out what the games are like :/
  • Don’t Expect Fair Play Jul 20, 2021

    By Domestic D
    If you wouldn’t mind buying a guaranteed losing lottery ticket on a regular basis, this is the app for you. Take MLB for example…you’ll build out a lineup and check it constantly up until the start time. The start time will come and lock in all of your entries for games that have started. That means - if you’re playing a lineup that spans multiple start times, those players whose games have started will be locked. The other players are still editable up until their start times. HOWEVER, if a game should happen to be postponed, canceled, or otherwise not played, even if it is postponed after the lock time where you can’t fairly edit the lineup to remove the players, you’re screwed. Instead of opening those positions back up for edit, they keep them locked and don’t allow you to change them. So even though you’ve been religiously checking your lineups and they have the starters marked and the game is a go, there is no guarantee that the game will even be played. In that case, you’re on the hook. I’ve written their support team about it but nothing has changed. It seems like they’re trying to rip you off when they already have a mechanism in place that allows you to edit a lineup where other games have started. So why not allow that for games that are no longer being played?

  • 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!

    Despite having a good signal and other apps such as DKLive working well, DK will freq. state Network Error, &^⁶ that it is having connectivity issues and to try again later. It is very frustrating when that occurs as im trying to complete my undrafted lineups or in order to check starting lineups in order to make any necessary changes before the game starts. I have lost a lot of $ due to this issue because I'm unable to finish or correct lineups in time. Otherwise I enjoy it.

  • No support and account restrictions Feb 15, 2021

    By draftkings👎
    I downloaded this app a few months ago and enjoyed the app. Until my account was put into restriction without any warning. After several attempts to reach a real person to find out, I was emailed and notified that my account was out into a restricted status because of “too many attempts”. This was odd because I did not try to submit any deposits after my initial. I was asked to submit identification via the app and wait for review. It’s been a week and still my account is restricted. The support on the messaging portion of app is useless as they do not reply on there. I’ve tried emAiling the team lead and still no reply. I have tickets with deadlines that I cannot play because I’m restricted. Truly frustrated with how this company handles its customer service. As of writing this today I have still not heard from anyone. UPDATE #1: since posting this review I have yet to receive any help. I continue to email to the email provided and in app and still no help. The developers have responded to my review with a generic response with no real help. Please take your business else where as this company does not care about its users and customers. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

  • Account getting restricted for no reason, DraftKings ignorance for a customer Oct 12, 2018

    By TylerB904
    For what ever reason that doesn’t make any sense why my Acct would be restricted has cut me off from using my ability to play in contest , I’ve never had any reason to get my acct restricted and would like this handle ASAP bc I was expecting to join a contest and depending on how quickly this gets resolved will determine if I never use this app again and only use Fanduel which I’ve heard has a lot better contest to offer. I need an honest answer to why in the hell my acct has been blocked bc with the contest I was trying to play I know based on the players I had it would have put me in for a good shot at doing well in the contest. There is gonna need to be some sort of compensation for this issue with your app because of the years I’ve used this app never had issues and now all of sudden having issues at a critical time. How this issue is handled thru this company will determine how vigorous and aggressive I’ll promote people to never use draft kings again and use fanduel and other competitors to your type of app If this review could allow me to do NO Stars I would do it without a doubt
  • Absent Customer Support Oct 1, 2020

    By Trevor1127
    Someone recently tried to steal money from my DK account. My email was spam attacked and I noticed the email they were trying to hide was a $5 deposit to my DK account. I informed DK right away, and I even told them someone was going to withdraw a bunch of money into whatever account deposited that $5. A day went by with no word from DK, and low and behold, a huge withdraw was made. I sprinted home and was thankfully able to cancel that withdrawal. No word from DK. The next day, I get an automated message that my account is restricted and I need to upload a picture of my license. I did so immediately. I’ve updated DK every step of the way, even though I’m just responding to my previous updates. Approaching 5 days now for an issue their website states will be dealt with in under 24 hours. DK response, or lack there of, has now cost me more money than the scammers tried to withdrawal. I’ve even escalated my ticket and still haven’t heard a word about this in near 5 days; after providing around 10 updates during that time. My info/account was compromised on DK end. Their response has been extremely discouraging and worrisome.

  • Not enough time to update players Apr 4, 2019

    By Chuckyman6
    Team, I have been playing this website for a few months now and to be honest I’m not impressed. I don’t find out until the game starts that two people in my line up are out for evening. Now I understand that things happen during the game and some times it’s a game decision, but the last 5 or 6 games that a played this site has made me feel like I’m making a good pic based on their feedback with the player. I am almost certain you have updated feedback on each player before the game starts. I have also noticed that your player updates are sometimes a week behind. Therefore if you are as busy as I am you don’t always have time to rely on your own research and count the site to give you proper feedback for the player your picking. Also, feedback on solid players you know are going to well isn’t as necessary as who would be replacing them if they were not play. You don’t deserve five stars and probably never will unless you can give proper feedback to you the people that invest in broken site.
  • Lineup lock Dec 16, 2017

    By murder_i_wrote
    Lineup lock for NBA is absurd. It makes it a game of luck instead of a game of skill which seems like dangerous territory for DFS. You can do all the research you want but if you have a player that is ruled out after lineup lock it doesn’t matter how skilled you are or how much research you put in. All it becomes is a game of luck by picking players who won’t be “surprisingly” ruled out after lock. And whoever avoids the injury landmines are the ones who will benefit from it. It’s killing my enjoyment in playing nba anymore. I know the response will be that you do offer a late swap feature however it is obvious that it’s a lesser product only implemented to justify keeping it off the classic slate. I don’t play DFS on any other site but this issue has me contemplating of playing NBA elsewhere or just stopping NBA play all together. I hope that lineup lock on the classic slate gets resolved soon because i really enjoy the rest of your product and want to continue as a loyal customer.
  • Own Your Mistakes Feb 18, 2021

    By FirstReviewEver12345
    Thank you DraftKings, for confirming NBA players as a starter with a green check mark. Then those same players confirmed by DraftKings as a starter, is actually out for the entire game. Can a government agency please regulate and audit this company? They post inactive players as active, and then claim it was the users fault and their own risk. That is not a risk. A risk implies there is a small chance of success. This was set up for failure by the platform. I have screenshot images of the player being confirmed as a starter with a green check mark before and after the lineups locked. Up to 6 minutes after the lineups locked, they have green check marks. Then the player is ruled out before the game starts. 99% of my loses on the site are my own picks and risk. The fact that they’re customer service claims this is a “risk” is highly suspect. It now makes me wonder how many rigged contests I’ve been in over the past few years. Don’t use this app, it is a scam.

  • 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.

Fix or I'll take my business to FanDual
  • LateTeamDrafting Sep 27, 2020

    By McClamFam
    I love everything about the DraftKings app, from winning REAL money to the sports game you can draft from. The only thing that I think would make it even perfect is they let you do the late drafting even after the games started. You know like if basketball start at 7pm eastern time, then you should still be able to draft a team just not from the 7oclock games. You know something like fanduel. That one thing is literally the only difference for me anyways. Some people like myself forget to keep track of time and often more than a little, I end up making donations to DraftKings rather than picking a team. But I enjoy DraftKings very much.
  • Player Updates Need to be more timely Jul 11, 2019

    By Blob tyuvjkdfio
    I know it’s NBA summer league, but if your going to write an updated status on a players news feed about him being inactive for a game, it should be done prior to tip off and there should be an alert to anyone that has that player in their lineup. Example - L. Walker IV player news update came out at 8:01pm cst tonight that said he was inactive and not playing. His game started at 8pm cst. Why can’t that update come out 10 minutes before tip? It wasn’t a last minute decision and since your writers are taking the time to write that update, why not do it in a somewhat timely manner. Like before the game starts. Other that that, I love DK.

  • 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.
  • First Time Player Jun 18, 2021

    By MickyD1957
    It was kinda hard to tell how many rounds Of golf would be played from my first tournament. 1 round and then pay and pick new players for round 2, etc.I was also looking for the free 18th hole contest and could not find it on the mobile app. Seems like false advertising to me. Actually picking the players was very easy and paying the entry fee was taken from money transferred from Pay Pal to DraftKings, which was nice because I didn’t have to provide any credit card information. I wish I could given a better review, their needs to be online help via chat or phone call to answer questions about the different was to bet, etc.
  • 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”.
  • System changes needed Jan 15, 2018

    By commom joe
    I like DK, I really do. I the “idea” of investing a few dollars to possibly win thousands is a really fun thought, especially for a common joe like myself. However, my absolute biggest problem with DK is with their NBA set ups. Not being able to switch out a player that has been scratched from a game lineup ESPECIALLY when the game they are in has yet to start is INCREDIBLY frustrating. It’s possible to do in a NFL lineup, so why it’s so difficult to do with the NBA is foreign to me. I have mentioned it to DK and all they say is, “Play the late swap contests,” which is a garbage response. DK makes crazy money, I know they have the resources to make this happen.

    By Cracklicker
    Everything as far as game play has been a breeze. Navigation, picking a sport, placing a bet, checking score are all easy and self explanatory. The only problem I have is people sending me 100 plus invites a day. I turned of notifications because of this but I still get 100 or more emails a day about someone inviting me to play a stupid head to head or other contest they created. I went to the desktop to try and block the people... that turned out to be a big Fing joke. The same people still send me invites all day and night. If something doesn’t change I’m going to change fantasy app.
  • Love the app, but it has some accessibility issues they need to fix Dec 31, 2017

    By Wes Derby
    I’ve used this app for just over two years… Overall, it’s a great experience. However, as a blind person, I’m very irritated at the way they’ve broken player information. It used to be quite user friendly with voiceover. I’ve written the company, and they’ve done nothing to fix this. Overall, still very user-friendly… But, it would be nice to be able to see player news and other things when drafting the player, as opposed to having to wait and look it up through other sources.
  • Don’t Expect Fair Play Jul 20, 2021

    By Domestic D
    If you wouldn’t mind buying a guaranteed losing lottery ticket on a regular basis, this is the app for you. Take MLB for example…you’ll build out a lineup and check it constantly up until the start time. The start time will come and lock in all of your entries for games that have started. That means - if you’re playing a lineup that spans multiple start times, those players whose games have started will be locked. The other players are still editable up until their start times. HOWEVER, if a game should happen to be postponed, canceled, or otherwise not played, even if it is postponed after the lock time where you can’t fairly edit the lineup to remove the players, you’re screwed. Instead of opening those positions back up for edit, they keep them locked and don’t allow you to change them. So even though you’ve been religiously checking your lineups and they have the starters marked and the game is a go, there is no guarantee that the game will even be played. In that case, you’re on the hook. I’ve written their support team about it but nothing has changed. It seems like they’re trying to rip you off when they already have a mechanism in place that allows you to edit a lineup where other games have started. So why not allow that for games that are no longer being played?

    Despite having a good signal and other apps such as DKLive working well, DK will freq. state Network Error, &^⁶ that it is having connectivity issues and to try again later. It is very frustrating when that occurs as im trying to complete my undrafted lineups or in order to check starting lineups in order to make any necessary changes before the game starts. I have lost a lot of $ due to this issue because I'm unable to finish or correct lineups in time. Otherwise I enjoy it.

    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
  • Competitive balance Feb 17, 2021

    I don’t think it’s fair that a competitor who plays in $5000 contests is allowed to play in the same contest with $20 players?? Appreciate your response, but seriously it could be tweaked don’t you think? Honestly somebody who plays in multiple $5000 tournament is allowed to play in a $20 ( buy in)tournament with a price pool of $200? If you believe that to be true don’t even respond, thank you. I did read a lot of people complaining about your customer service that’s one thing I’ve never ever had a problem with! The other night I played In a $10 - 6 person winner take all, with chipotle addict,youdaco moklovin and awesomeo!! There’s no justice in your system if you think that’s fair! And remember, I didn’t call you complaining , you asked !before you ask me why I’m crying? But ,real nice job not letting them play in three dollar contest! Way to go!!!
  • False info on live betting Feb 6, 2021

    By Richiebmn
    Be careful with draftkings. When placing a live bet their site is up to 1 minute behind. So you’re not actually making a live bet. I wrote them and they told me to use a different live site to get live scores, but that their odds are update in real time, though that cannot be true if you’re getting a lagging score. I wouldn’t not bet live on their platform. The reply from Draftkings is false. I have screen shots of the live games from a different website and the scores they had displayed in real time. Over 1 minute behind. Anyone who wants to look, go on their live games and then go to any live game on tv and you will see how far behind they are for odds and live scores
  • 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.

    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.

  • 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!
  • No support and account restrictions Feb 15, 2021

    By draftkings👎
    I downloaded this app a few months ago and enjoyed the app. Until my account was put into restriction without any warning. After several attempts to reach a real person to find out, I was emailed and notified that my account was out into a restricted status because of “too many attempts”. This was odd because I did not try to submit any deposits after my initial. I was asked to submit identification via the app and wait for review. It’s been a week and still my account is restricted. The support on the messaging portion of app is useless as they do not reply on there. I’ve tried emAiling the team lead and still no reply. I have tickets with deadlines that I cannot play because I’m restricted. Truly frustrated with how this company handles its customer service. As of writing this today I have still not heard from anyone. UPDATE #1: since posting this review I have yet to receive any help. I continue to email to the email provided and in app and still no help. The developers have responded to my review with a generic response with no real help. Please take your business else where as this company does not care about its users and customers. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

    By TylerB904
    For what ever reason that doesn’t make any sense why my Acct would be restricted has cut me off from using my ability to play in contest , I’ve never had any reason to get my acct restricted and would like this handle ASAP bc I was expecting to join a contest and depending on how quickly this gets resolved will determine if I never use this app again and only use Fanduel which I’ve heard has a lot better contest to offer. I need an honest answer to why in the hell my acct has been blocked bc with the contest I was trying to play I know based on the players I had it would have put me in for a good shot at doing well in the contest. There is gonna need to be some sort of compensation for this issue with your app because of the years I’ve used this app never had issues and now all of sudden having issues at a critical time. How this issue is handled thru this company will determine how vigorous and aggressive I’ll promote people to never use draft kings again and use fanduel and other competitors to your type of app If this review could allow me to do NO Stars I would do it without a doubt
  • Absent Customer Support Oct 1, 2020

    By Trevor1127
    Someone recently tried to steal money from my DK account. My email was spam attacked and I noticed the email they were trying to hide was a $5 deposit to my DK account. I informed DK right away, and I even told them someone was going to withdraw a bunch of money into whatever account deposited that $5. A day went by with no word from DK, and low and behold, a huge withdraw was made. I sprinted home and was thankfully able to cancel that withdrawal. No word from DK. The next day, I get an automated message that my account is restricted and I need to upload a picture of my license. I did so immediately. I’ve updated DK every step of the way, even though I’m just responding to my previous updates. Approaching 5 days now for an issue their website states will be dealt with in under 24 hours. DK response, or lack there of, has now cost me more money than the scammers tried to withdrawal. I’ve even escalated my ticket and still haven’t heard a word about this in near 5 days; after providing around 10 updates during that time. My info/account was compromised on DK end. Their response has been extremely discouraging and worrisome.

    Unless you know how to build a good algorithm, don't even try it. You will lose constantly. Less than 10 percent of the players (the sharks) win everything. Most of them are ex-poker players who migrated to this when poker was shut down. Some of them don't even watch or follow the sports they play. They just plug numbers into their intricate models and win all the money. And you have to finish in the top 10 in a tournament to make any significant money, due to the ridiculously high rake.

    I have never met a company that made it so difficult to give my money to!! My husband has an account already. I wanted to start playing too so he downloaded the app on my phone but used his bank card when adding money. Apparently that’s an issue with DK. Fine, fine sorry I’ll use mine. After being on chat forever about that we thought the issue was resolved and I would be able to start drafting. Come Sunday, my account was STILL locked down. I messaged them asking why?!? I deposited $25 from my bank card and verified my account already. No one got back to me. Tonight...Monday... more of the same. People on chat asking for my ID and my husbands. Getting the run around... we uploaded documentation . Did everything they asked. Waited for at least an hour or more to even talk to anyone. Such a hassle!!! Why can I walk into a casino and blow my money with 0 of these issues!!! ??? I get it you have rules but seriously?! When I can’t get support or immediate resolve after I fix the issue the problem lies within YOUR company. Going to Fanduel right now.
  • Brutal May 23, 2018

    By DKisTrash
    This app simply just stinks. It crashes all the time, especially right before a contest when everyone is trying to get on and adjust line ups. It never updates your account total quickly. It gives false info on people in contests and if you’ve joined. And when you bring it to their customer service attention, or can’t enter a line up because it keeps crashing, they will not refund you and tell you it’s your iPad and equipments fault. They’ve even told me to just use a PC instead of the app to solve my problems, what a solution! I’ve updated my iPad, the app, deleted the app and even re downloaded, yet nothing ever seems to help. So many bugs for an app so many people use each day and they definitely have the money to fix it, yet just don’t. Pretty sad to see a company that’s takes so much money from people give absolutely 0 effort back. This app alone pushed me over to FanDuel, and I couldn’t be happier with the switch. Never spending another dime at DK!
  • Misleading information Dec 27, 2017

    By micotanner
    I'm very unhappy about DFS services. Usually DFS notifies or labels what players are questionable or “out.” Well when I picked a player, his latest news didn’t say that he wasn’t playing and that he wasn’t questionable or out for that matter. Come to find out the player I chose didn’t even play... I think it would be fair to give a refund back to those who didn’t know any better since DFS didn’t label anything about this player not playing at all. I emailed DFS and they tell you that it’s our responsibility to check upon those things... although they have labeled players that are either questionable or out... but I guess for certain players that don’t even play, they don’t put questionable or out for the player you chose so you’re money you spent on the lineup is your fault. This player I chose had projected points so they make you think he’s playing even though he didn’t and they don’t refund you back for there mistakes. Horrible.
