DraftKings DFS Review
When it comes to leading online Daily Fantasy Sports services for U.S. players two names stand out head and shoulders above the rest. FanDuel and DraftKings. FanDuel can fairly be said to have kickstarted the revolution in online DFS gaming in 2009, but Boston’s DraftKings has quickly become a formidable competitor since it debuted in 2012. That success attests to having ‘the right stuff’, and indeed the company now commands a user base of over eight million players, and stages over twenty thousand public contests every day! That makes it currently the largest provider, but is biggest truly the best?

Layout & Usability
DraftKings certainly has a good understanding to website design and usability, since whether you’re new to DFS gaming or looking for an alternative place to play from your current online home, everything is laid out in a logical and uncluttered way. Thoughtful navigation and search facilities makes it easy to find contests in the sports your fancy testing your skills in, research statistics to inform your strategy or get answers to burning questions if you’re a true novice looking to lose your DFS virginity in a dignified manner.
Setting up a player account is super easy – providing of course you meet the criteria for legal play in the U.S. state you’re accessing the service from – and depositing funds for play is possible with either Visa, MasterCard, American Express or PayPal payment services. This should cover most customers’ needs, but it might be nice to see DraftKings extend its banking options a little in the future. Like its main rival, DraftKings offers plenty of Free to Play contests too, so there’s plenty of ways to test-drive the service before you commit any of your own hard-earned cash to your DFS pursuits.
Mobile play has become a key feature of DFS gaming – particularly the convenience of monitoring your progress in a contest wherever you are or whatever you’re doing – and DraftKings has that well covered too. Its site works seamlessly on any reasonably up to date mobile device’s browser, but for extra convenience there are native iOS and Android apps for free download from the App Store and Google Play respectively.
Mobile & Tablet
DraftKings offers an iOS app and an Android app but it’s just as easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser.
Deposit Methods Include: Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, PayPal.
