    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'm updating my review after emailing them and working to get my account fixed! Took a few days and wad rather frustrating but it did get fixed and so I'd thought I'd come back and change my 1 star to 4. I'm still learning the app so I've lost a little money but that's my own fault lol.

    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!

    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

    Really, if you are going to gamble on your phone, this is the best app to do so. I've deposited $0.00usd, and I've won. The free pools are fun, & you can win a little money. My only complaint is that sometimes I get the "you are not eligible" error, but it usually fixes itself if you refresh a couple times.

    I guess my VPN interferes with this app but you figure if I shut off log out, log back in it would work but it doesn't so you try again and throw in a power reset but still it says VPN that isn't on is blocking my location. It's Express VPN not like I bought it from the neighbor kid. This app works 0/10 times for me. I think it's a gamblers anonymous tool.

    Most Androids do not allow the updating of the System Webview app. It's listed as "Disabled" in the Play Store. I realize the issue ended up being a Google one, but this advice was not helpful and did not work. Updating Chrome did nothing. The problem was not solved until Google fixed their issue.

    Again, I have money that disappears and does weird stuff on this app to the point I'm starting to not trust their business practices. Customer service system is nonsensical, slow and has only satisfied me once which was great on them. I like the app and to play but dont like the weird money changes from what I can withdraw, it always appears to benefit Draft Kings. Crazy, right?

    Today I got an email from them basically saying if I have a VPN installed on my phone which isn't even running I will no longer be able to use there app. The fact that they can look at what apps are installed on your phone at anytime is bad news for anyone with any sensitive information aka crypto and bank accounts. If you don't want things to come up missing you should avoid this and there sportsbook they have to much power for anyone's good. All it takes is a corrupt employee or them getting hacked or backdoored and next thing you know your calling the bank to have them fix it with crypto wallets pretty much out of luck

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    It's understandable that there may be issues locating me since i literally live in the border of two states... both of which are eligible to place bets in but, I've messaged customer service twice and they given me the exact same instructions that are on the site. I communicated that I'd tried the recommended steps and was given the same steps again. Not helpful. I'll stick with the the other apps.

  • 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!

    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

    By jaybucky
    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

  • 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!!!
