About DraftKings.com

DraftKings.com is a daily fantasy sports website, which offers regular fantasy contests in major league sports such as the NBA, NFL, MLB, and CFB, giving people a chance to win cash or prizes daily.

Daily fantasy sites are relatively new to the fantasy sports industry, having been established in 2007 and still gaining popularity. Daily fantasy sports sites allow you to draft a team of athletes for a particular day of sporting events – you can start over redrafting your team from scratch each day you wish to participate.

DraftKings.com offers a variety of types of daily fantasy contests on their website, including those you pay to enter, those which are free to enter, those which are Guaranteed, and those which are not.

Guaranteed contests will continue forward with the prizes being “guaranteed” to be awarded regardless of how many people enter the contest; contests that aren’t Guaranteed will be shut down if they don’t reach a minimum number of contestants.

Once you choose the contest you’d like to compete in, simply click the Draft Team button to enter. You will be given a salary cap of $50,000 to draft your team, and all the players will be assigned a salary in relation to their recent performance, and not their actual salary.

After you submit a roster, you can continue to modify it until the contest actually begins. If you win money in any contest, it will immediately be credited to your account and can be withdrawn via check or PayPal.

If you have any experience with this website, please leave your DraftKings.com reviews below.

Little chance of winning on slots



July16, 2020

It would be nice if Draftkings gave its slot machine players a fighting chance to win once in a while but the settings are so rigged for in their favor that it makes it nearly impossible to do anything but let them gobble up your money. The bonus rounds are sooo infrequent, the bonus spins so disappointing, and the regulars spins just a total ripoff. Nothing like regular casino odds at all!

Love It



January3, 2017

I love Draftkings. I play it every NFL Sunday and frequently during the week with NBA. Sure, chances of winning aren't the greatest for beginners but they also have beginner leagues if you are a newbie. I would recommend to anyone who loves fantasy sports.

Changing Ownership Percentages



February29, 2016

Has anybody ever wondered why ownership percentages change halfway during a contest of a player that's already played or is playing? It makes no sense since a player cannot be changed once their game has started, but I've seen time and time again where the percentages change. Leads to believe lineups are being created during contest for already played players. I've emailed DK about this and got zero responses.

Legit



January31, 2016

I think the company is legit. Sports betting is just highly competitive! After about two or three weeks I won $0.75. It could be that some of the players who win consistently use a paid database to help them pick lineups, or they believe in luck. Draft Kings is a fun betting tool because sports are fun in general. As with anything one key to success & contentment is not to put all of your eggs in one basket, therefore, a person should never gamble with money they need. So, if you are going to need the money I would suggest not putting it in your Draft Kings account. I care about other people most of the time so I would like to recommend a website called The Penny Hoarder at http://www.thepennyhoarder.com/. On the website you can find ways to get money matching deals like opening banks accounts where the bank will match your deposit immediately. Personally, I have gotten a better return investing my money in other vehicles. Good Luck & Good Fun Sports Bettors!

Newgirl



December2, 2015

I have been playing for about 6 weeks. Every week I manage to win $30-$35 which allows me to keep playing. I cant really say the game is fixed. There is no way to predict a player not being played or getting hurt. Their is luck involved......but not with the game. The luck has to do with how your players are played and how they do.
After reviewing a huge spreadsheet of stats every week.....I still can see winning more than $30......one day. There are many variables involved that need to be reviewed ( who is on bye, who is probable/questionable, who will cover those that are hurt, what their relationship is with the team, what the weather is, is it being played indoors, etc.) Yes it's tough and a game! Crossing my fingers to win $30 :) It makes Sundays way more fun!

Most the player do not all exists



November10, 2015

Letter to DraftKings, no reply… Can you clarify why you have large gaps when listing the participates in your games. I have been exporting/down loading your player list throughout the games list every quarter and I copy and paste the results into a separate spreadsheet because your site does not allow me to save the results and I found this process is a way around it. I also have taken pictures and videotaped my doing this. . Your site will jump in the thousands. The list I down load shows all the players that are missing from your website but when you enter these players name into FIND A RIVAL their names to not come up. I have hundreds of excels sheets that document this. I will provide an example. Game ending 0n 11/10/15 NFL $1.25M PLAY-ACTION [$1.25 MILLION GUARANTEED- you go from player 28460, straight to 55214, then to 95412. When I take the player names off the excel sheets in between these placing they don’t come up on you find rival list. Here are a very few list of players that come up on the excel sheets I have but I can’t pull up on the rival list, player- 4760 JStek64 , tilerty, DON5222,. d228833, quadrunner4, rewilson, msliwins. This is just not even a fraction of the names I been checking since starting your site, every player that falls in a gap does not come up when I enter their name in the find rival list to see what team they are playing or won with. I have thousands of rivals that I have been playing against that do not show up on your site to see what teams they really picked or if these players really exist. Again I copy and paste the excel sheets during the game and after. None of the players listed in the gaps of players that you exclude on you website, come up on your site even though they come up on these hundreds of excel sheet that I have created off your site. I think there are investigations going on about your website where there are people that will be very interested in seeing all these hundreds of excel sheet that I have pulled off your website. Can you explain why the people listed in these gap of winner won’t come up on your website but only on the excel sheets. I am a quality expert and I am concerned about this, and very willing to take this information to right people to make sure that these thousands of players that I have saved excel sheet really do exist. I think you should have some answer to my question. I do enjoy playing and will continue, but I feel your just need some type on regulations and needs to be over seen to verify everything is legit. I will continue playing on your site, but will want this information looked at by some real experts. They never answered. But try it, most the player do not all exists

I agree with you. You don't see these players at all, then all if a sudden they always seem to be in the running to win the tournament. I think there is something shady going on. Think the employees at Draft Kings are putting made up teams in the contests after the games start, so they don't have to pay out the big money. Plus I see a lot of winners have 6, 7, 8 players 10% owned or less. There's no way someone can figure out who is going to be the lowest owned before the games start. Just like this past Saturday in college football, I was in first place in two separate tournaments until the 4th quarter of the games. All of a sudden, I end up 910th place and 280th place. All these mysterious teams that weren't even in the top 1000 pass me at the last minute. Go from thinking I'm going to win some good money, to barely winning any money at all. Something is NOT RIGHT!!!!!!

December 04, 2015

I agree with you too. There is a window here for non transparency. After reading your post I can see where you are coming from. The game I play typically has approximately 300,000 people. If this a "dashboard" type set up that information should be available. I'm not a software expert so...... If they are sampling to save space..... Could that be a possibility? I don't know. I do take snapshots of the top winners every week and on average the player values vary..... So I usually can't afford all the winners the following week. I will keep it in mind when I play..... Thank you

not scam



November6, 2015

I have been playing for about 2 months. I have won about $10 and a free ticket. It's like anything you have luck. Just like at a casino you can win or you can loose. (I am a first time player, but have friends who also play this and I have seen there checks they have won over $2000) I found this site from friends and a promotion during Sunday night football....(TV) . I am usually skeptical and I do my research before playing. I have to say I can't find anything that says it's a scam. It's like any other place. You don't win it's a scam. Then don't play.

It's a scam. My boyfriend won $10,000 and they sent him a outdated check from six months ago that says you have to cash within the 90days of the date of check.
