    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 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'm having a problem getting credit for achievements. I believe I have to click on each achievement to get credit for playing the required game or game's however sometimes I receive the credit other times it's hit and miss. I always receive a message saying can't open contest now and am directed back to the home page or as it's referred to here the dreaded network error. In order to get credit for achievements do I need to click on each separate achievement or will I be credited automatically
  • 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 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.
  • Not enough time to update players Apr 4, 2019

    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.

    Betting on video games is frustrating. The scores often freeze. Sometimes for minutes, sometimes for hours. Clearing the cache doesn't help. Restarting my phone doesn't help. A delay of several minutes is understandable....a delay of several hours, not so much.

    I've been using DraftKing for years and had no problem logging in and making a deposit. All of a sudden it has problems with location permission? All the settings are set correctly but the app still does not identify my location. That's a big fail when I want to put money on some games. I will be uninstalling and looking for other alternatives until they fix the problem.
  • 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?

    I have never written a review before. I have wasted so much of my time trying to play on this app, I feel obligated to let everyone know it doesn't look like it will get better, it has been getting worse over time. The dreaded "network error" is now the norm when the app is opened. I waited for one more update before I decided to leave when it didn't help. The promotions and rewards were the best on DK among all DFS platforms, but the app is unusable MOST of the time now. Don't waste your time.

  • 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!!!

  • 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

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.
  • Inaccurate App & Horrible customer service Jan 2, 2020

    By DocDrae
    The worst thing about the entire DFS industry is that providers like Draftkings, can make a ton of money with little effort. Draftkings’ money making machine starts with just providing a platform for DFS players to exchange money. Of course they have to come up with ways to get people to play more money and more often, but the key is just providing the platform. There is no product people actually buy, it’s just a service Draftkings provides. So why the 1-star? Because all too often Draftkings forgets that they provide a service and with that, a user of their service should expect good customer service. In my situation, the Draftkings app failed to provide good service and when I brought it to Draftkings, they continued the failure and provided horrible customer service. So I recommend using Fanduel. They are not perfect, no one is, but Fanduel has the best customer service and accountability. Good Luck DFS community!
  • Won't open Nov 10, 2018

    By ChrisDMV88
    So this is the only app that has given me problems. Right now it only gives me a loading wheel and never opens. Before this issue I would open the app and it would send me back to the home screen after an 10 seconds of loading. It wouldn't even get passed the DraftKings logo screen. But now it gets to the second screen with a wheel and will not open fully. Just sits and sits. This app has been terrible for me lately. Ps to fix the first issue I would have to completely cut the data off and load it up until it said not connected to the internet (about 5 tries) then cut data on and it works again. This happens at 12 and I can't view NFL lineups. And if it happens at 630 on NBA I'm toast. This is not the best app by far and it might be the only app I have issues with. Currently cannot even open app! Just stuck with loading wheel.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    I usually do not have a problem with the app. Just today it is saying I can not enter a contest because my phone is disguising my location like thru a VPN. I have nothing like that running. I can not enter any contests.
  • 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.

    I'm having a problem getting credit for achievements. I believe I have to click on each achievement to get credit for playing the required game or game's however sometimes I receive the credit other times it's hit and miss. I always receive a message saying can't open contest now and am directed back to the home page or as it's referred to here the dreaded network error. In order to get credit for achievements do I need to click on each separate achievement or will I be credited automatically

    Betting on video games is frustrating. The scores often freeze. Sometimes for minutes, sometimes for hours. Clearing the cache doesn't help. Restarting my phone doesn't help. A delay of several minutes is understandable....a delay of several hours, not so much.

    app crashes often throughout contests. hard to get ahold of real human and deal with a.i. alot. response time to contact support are not acceptable. cut through some of the ads that keep popping up and fix server issues on your end draft kings.

    Lowered my rating from a 5 to a 3. User interface has become worse, too many error screens and major issues with creating and joining contests. They tried to make it flashier and functionality nose-dived.
  • 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.
  • 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?

    Keep getting a Bad Request - Request too long error trying to get to free pools. Didn't use to do this. Can't get to promos. The app needs to be fixed.

    I've been using DraftKing for years and had no problem logging in and making a deposit. All of a sudden it has problems with location permission? All the settings are set correctly but the app still does not identify my location. That's a big fail when I want to put money on some games. I will be uninstalling and looking for other alternatives until they fix the problem.

    I have never written a review before. I have wasted so much of my time trying to play on this app, I feel obligated to let everyone know it doesn't look like it will get better, it has been getting worse over time. The dreaded "network error" is now the norm when the app is opened. I waited for one more update before I decided to leave when it didn't help. The promotions and rewards were the best on DK among all DFS platforms, but the app is unusable MOST of the time now. Don't waste your time.

  • 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!!!

  • 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

  • Worst. Company. Ever Sep 18, 2018

    By Juice's Wife
    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.
