Draftkings is a bookmaker, operating since 2007, and recently turned into a respectable company. The main areas of the company are betting on sports events, poker and online games. After the entry into force of the law on betting organizations in USA, the company found itself outside the legal field in the America. Although her site has been translated into many languages and the number of clients from different countries continues to increase, Americans players have to bypass the blocking of Draftkings bookmaker due to the existing ban.
The main advantages include:
- Quality painting and line;
- Good odds;
- A huge set of functionality;
- Welcome bonus.
The Draftkings bookmaker operates not only on the Internet, but also through betting points throughout the country. Work is carried out under an official license of the Tax Service and Curacao. As a promotion, BC use advertising on television and the Internet. In addition, a special video blog has been created where a review of sporting events with the participation of the presenters is conducted, as well as the rules and principles of playing on BC. Some novice players may confuse it with a Draftkings, but these are different offices, albeit very similar to each other.
The site was designed by professionals, so the color design is superior to most domestic offices. The site template is painted in a light blue color, on which green keys stand out, in addition, there are bright advertising banners.
When translating into another language, only the site template changes, that is, the commands and surnames are not translated, but remain in English. Most players are familiar with these names, so choosing the right event is easy. There is also a panel of individual settings in which players can set the format for displaying the site, odds and other settings.
In addition to the line, at the top of the site are links such as Live, slots, etc., that is, in addition to the main sporting events, you can earn on other gambling games. The Live link allows you to follow sports events in real time.
Among the usual buttons for bettors on Draftkings there is a financial section. If a player has knowledge in trading, he can play in the currency market directly on the official website of Draftkings and earn a solid profit.
There are always many roulette tables and attractive cashbacks in the Live casino section. Players will be able to bet both on the phone and on the computer. It is enough to log in, replenish the game account, and you can start the game. Each window with the game indicates the size of the cashback in percent.
In the statistics section of the Draftkings website, players will find information on the standings of the teams, details and matches indicating the number of shots on target, yellow and red cards, the percentage of possession of the ball. However, there are no individual statistics of clubs on totals, odds, etc.
There are several ways to create an account on the official page of a bookmaker. In each case, the bettor spend a minimum of time. First you need to click on the registration button located in the upper right corner of the site. Registration form will appear
We see that the creation of a personal account on the Draftkings website is carried out in 4 ways:
- One click;
- By phone number;
- By email;
- Through social networks.
The player should indicate only the correct personal data, password, phone number, email address, as well as a promotional code, if any. After filling in all the fields, the bettor clicks on the green button. It is important to read the rules of the Draftkings bookmaker, so that in the future there will be no questions about how game coupons are calculated for different types of bets for different sports.
After clicking on the green button, the bettor receives an email with a link for authorization on the BC Draftkings website. In the future, he can replenish the game account and place bets as usual. In the case of simplified registration (all of the proposed methods, with the exception of registration by e-mail), the bookmaker will require you to completely fill out the account information. This is usually given 24 hours. That is, the first stage of the game can be considered as a demo version, although you can deposit money into the account and play immediately.
But the entire procedure for filling out a profile is absolutely standard, carried out in the settings of your personal account. It will be necessary to indicate only personal data (name, date of birth, address), as well as a phone number and email.
Draftkings line and odds
Draftkings is a bookmaker with bets in a traditional form. There are many sporting events on the left side, here you can even find swimming, martial arts and other sports not too popular for betting.
When choosing an event, you can bet not only on a win or a draw, but also select classic and individual totals from the existing list both for top fights and meetings of teams from little-known championships.
One of the main advantages of the Draftkings bookmaker is the supply of odds in the list of matches. There are several very useful buttons here, with the help of which bettors get access to bets on individual indicators of players, and the bet designer. With the help of a search engine, betting participants will easily find the desired markets in the list.
Note the time counter, which is easy to find out how many days, hours and minutes are left before the fights begin. The filter of events on the official resource of the betting shop Draftkings is represented by a line in which you can select the types of bets to display in the list. Thus, the painting is compact, and at the same time complete, comfortable for work. As for the conditions for sports betting, the Draftkings betting company they are very profitable.
The live betting line in Draftkings BC outperforms many competitors in volume. The number of proposals in the murals for football exceeds 500 with an average company commission of 5%. Hockey and tennis live murals also fill up well, and the office’s margin is 4-5%. Odds for most events are the same as for most bookmakers. Draftkings on events with the same probability of outcome will give a choice of 1.85-1.85. Not the most outstanding offer, but it can be worse.
For many matches, live streams in good quality are provided. It is enough to log in on the official website, have a positive balance on the game account, and you can watch live football, hockey, tennis, basketball broadcasts.
Almost all games have well-animated online tracking. It freely and practically without delay displays key events taking place on the field / parquet / court / ice. In the selected games there is a statistics icon, clicking on which you can quickly go to the section of the site to analyze past meetings and form teams. There is a lack of a quick bet function, which is especially useful in the live section. At the same time, the Draftkings site itself loads the computer quite heavily, and the coupon menu is not always well located (it does not scroll along with the line). Therefore, there are problems with the speed of concluding a bet.
The Draftkings website & Draftkings app
Draftkings should only reach a critical mass of interested parties, which has been announced for a long time, actually appears on the scene at some point. On the occasion of this opportunity, a German-language website of the provider is certainly to be expected, which unfortunately cannot be reported at the moment.
Regardless of the basically modern and clear design, the lack of such an offer should currently be one of the biggest barriers to entry.
Since many local sports fans are still entering uncharted territory with the Daily Fantasy Sports, a foreign-language betting site is hardly suitable for reducing understandable fear of contact.
In principle, even rudimentary English language skills are now sufficient to sufficiently integrate yourself into the sometimes self-explanatory processes.
The linchpin of the website is the “lobby”, which functions as a disguised homepage, from which the shortest route to the huge selection of available fantasy leagues is possible.
Great importance is also attached to the personal affairs of customers: with detailed and clear lists of their own competitions, they are always brought up to date.
You can use all the functions of this bookmaker on your Android or iOS mobile device. To install the application go to the market and click the “download” button.
Registration with Draftkings
New customers get a pleasant idea that Draftkings is one of the serious industry giants in the fantasy sports world when they register.
The first registration was so easy and self-explanatory that it can be done in a fraction of a second without any language skills.
The enabled access via your own Facebook account allows you to complete the registration without entering a single letter.
If, on the other hand, registration via Facebook is not entirely comfortable, fortunately, the conventional way comes almost as quickly to the train.
Since the provider requests little more than the name, date of birth and email address, Draftkings stands out in a pleasant way from the data-gathering anger of the cooperation partner from California.
The Draftkings deposits
We identified the deposits as a small weakness of drafting: We only managed to open the corresponding menu after several attempts.
After a while, our persistence was only rewarded with a manageable selection of payment providers.
Typical for a US company, Draftkings also cooperates with the relevant credit card institutes to process the payment flows.
In the DACH region, the selection in this regard is still somewhat economical: With Visa and the MasterCard, only the two biggest dogs are on board for the time being. For typists who have not yet really enjoyed the appeal of credit cards, only the Skrill e-wallet is offered as an alternative payment option.
Attractive additions, however, already appear to be in sight: We have heard several times that PayPal, which is highly valued by many tippers, will soon be found in the payment menu.
Such a cooperation with the e-payment service provider, which is considered to be particularly critical, would also underline the always serious work of Draftkings.
From a minimum amount of 100 euros, Draftkings also accepts bank transfers, which, however, initially requires contacting the service team.
Draftkings customer support
In order to contact the service staff, however, English language skills are absolutely necessary.
Since Draftkings still seems to approach the local market quite leisurely, German native speakers still shine with angry absence.
All questions and problems are also “discussed” only in writing: The simplest way to contact us is to use the contact form.
In addition, the expected hearing will also be heard by email or even questions sent by post after a certain period of time.
However, this only applies to the time between 6 a.m. and midnight: The service staff is currently closing the shop during the night.
The Draftkings payouts
In addition to the credit cards mentioned, Draftkings also provides Skrill as a much faster alternative for paying out the winnings earned in the Fantasy Sports leagues.
This provider is also expected to make the payment via the payment channel already used to top up the betting account.
If, for example, the MasterCard was used to top up the account with a first deposit of 100 euros, exactly those 100 euros will also be used to return the same way.
Only when the total winnings exceed the original deposit amount can customers choose from the repertoire of payment service providers without any restrictions.
If users are dissatisfied with this procedure for any reason, contacting the Draftkings service team often turns out to be useful.
The Draftkings new customer bonus
The fact that classic betting exchanges tend to be fairly buttoned when granting a new customer bonus also finds a suitable counterpart at Draftkings.
For a sniff, only a free content ticket is currently available, which has a monetary equivalent of a fairly narrow three dollars.
Since such three dollars have to be paid for participation in a beginner’s league, newly registered customers of Draftkings are granted a free ticket to a certain extent.
The small donation in the truest sense of the word is given to new customers after an extremely frugal minimum deposit of just five dollars.
The content ticket is also not subject to any other conditions, so that the money won at best is immediately available for payment.
