  • Always a chance Mar 9, 2019

    By The Average Joe #itspossible
    I have been playing DraftKings for 4 years now. I never really won a lot of money during the first few years I started. Like anything though with enough practice and patience you start to get good at pretty much anything you do. Well that’s how DraftKings works. If you are just an avid fan and think you know a little bit about sports then you shouldn’t expect to win much. You almost always have to have the perfect lineup to win a sizable amount of $. For most just the excitement of being involved with sports is good enough but with a chance to win some $ on top of that is a real thriller. As I said before, with a little patience and no quit I finally hit a 1st place prize of $1000 as well as a 3rd place entry for another $250. The investment into those formats was a lonely $2 but man did it hit and the feeling was like no other. Imagine the prizes in the more costly formats. I couldn’t even imagine hitting those top $ prizes and for that reason lady’s and gents is why I will continue to play DraftKings. You can’t find much more excitement at a lower price then what this app here will offer you. A big thanks to the developers of DraftKings and the men and woman that run it, you sure made my week when I checked the mail this morning.

    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

  • 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!

  • 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.

But program this app to determine when the VPN is actually being used vs. when it's just installed on the phone. It's so annoying to have to uninstall my VPN, uninstall this app, reinstall this app and sign in again every single time I want to enter a contest.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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!

    Do yourself a favor and use a different app (like fanduel). DraftKings does not care about their user's experience. If you have a problem they will take a very long time to get back to you and then basically say sorry we can't help. Also if you do decide to use them make sure you take screenshots of every bet, otherwise when the app glitches you are out of luck. Seriously use someone else.
