With its expertise as a sportsbook and fantasy sports destination, you’d be forgiven for thinking that DraftKings’ online casino is just a token gesture. But this is far from the truth: with almost 900 casino games covering a range of genres, a choice of three welcome bonuses, and an excellent loyalty reward scheme, DraftKings has created a worthy online casino in its own right.

Read on and discover exactly what’s on offer at this sportsbook-fantasy sports-casino hybrid — from the payment methods to the VIP lounge, we cover all you need to know. Then, if you’re interested, you can click through, sign up, and start playing.

Promo Code

One thing we love about this online casino is that new players get to choose from one of three welcome bonuses. The first, and most popular, is a 100% deposit match up to $2,000, triggered with a $5 minimum deposit. The second will grant players $50 of casino credits when they deposit a minimum of $25. And if your wallet is large enough to handle a deposit higher than $2,000, you can contact the DraftKings customer support team in order to receive a custom offer. The terms and conditions will be as varied as the offers themselves, so make sure you read them in full before you opt-in to an offer.


Games

Blackjack

Blackjack fans have lots to sink their teeth into at DraftKings, with 30 RNG titles alone. What’s most impressive about this collection is that 11 of these games are unique to the site. Five of these exclusive titles carry a sporty theme, such as Football Blackjack and Basketball Blackjack, weaving in elements of our favorite sports into one of the world’s most popular card games. Other blackjack variants include Blackjack Xchange, where players can swap out their first two cards, and a progressive blackjack game which offers players the popular 21+3 side bet. Blackjack purist? Don’t worry — there are plenty of traditional variants too.

Roulette

Roulette players have slightly less choice, but there are still 16 RNG games to enjoy here. Traditionalists might like to stick to standard American and European variants, but we like the quirkiness and nostalgia of Inspired’s Space Invaders Roulette. In this game, the iconic space shooter will light up pockets on the wheel to offer multipliers on winning bets. And in Scientific Games’ Blazing 7s Roulette, side bet wins are available when the ball lands in the 7, 17 and 27 pockets.


Slots

There are just under 800 slots at DraftKings, which is a more than respectable number. This includes some of the biggest releases of the last decade, including Microgaming’s Immortal Romance series, IGT’s Cleopatra, and NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest. The catalog also includes 39 progressive jackpot slots which occupy their own category, and 12 exclusive titles you won’t find anywhere else online.

Players can take a look at the newest additions to the DraftKings casino in order to play the latest games, or check out the casino’s hottest games of the moment. These categories help break the library down a bit — with so much variety in style, theme, RTP rates and volatility, you’ll be sure to find plenty of slots that suit your taste.

Live Casino

A live casino is the section of an online casino designed to imitate the experience of visiting a real casino. It achieves this by live streaming casino games either from purpose-built studios, or from a brick-and-mortar casino. Dealers and croupiers are professionally trained, and through chat boxes, will converse with players at the table just as they would in Monte Carlo.

Table games are the most popular form of game in a live casino, and DraftKings hosts a range of these games in its blackjack, roulette, and baccarat lobbies. The two other live dealer lobbies target poker games and live game show titles, where developers like Evolution Gaming and Pragmatic Play take inspiration from famous TV game shows and family board games. Curious to learn more? Head to the Live Dealer tab on the left-hand side, pick your lobby, and enjoy table game classics with a twist.


Desktop, Tablet and Mobile Experience

Navigating across the DraftKings casino is both simple and enjoyable. It’s made easy by the useful gaming categories laid out on the left-hand side of the page, which splits the library up into various sections. We’d like to be given the option to search by game developer, which would help break up the casino’s 880 titles further.

Of course, one of the best things about opening an account at this casino is that players have the option to dip out of the casino lounge and head over to one of DraftKings’ other verticals. Switching between the casino, the fantasy sports offering and the sportsbook is a breeze — just head to the top of the homepage and click on the section you’d like to visit, all from one gambling account.


Mobile

Mobile players rejoice! DraftKings has integrated its online casino into its existing sportsbook and fantasy sports app, so you’ll be able to spin the reels and place wagers all from the same product. The majority of the site’s games has been carried over, and these have all been designed with mobile players in mind, so there’s no compromising on quality either.

We always recommend our readers to download casino apps whenever possible, because they offer a range of benefits, including tailored bonuses and promotions, notifications to alert you to the latest offers, and superior playing experiences with faster loading times. But if you don’t like the idea of downloading software onto your mobile device, that’s no problem — you can access the DraftKings mobile casino straight from your browser too.


Promotions

Beyond the welcome bonus, players at DraftKings will be given the opportunity to participate in other promotional events. At the time of writing, this includes a Lucky 7s tournament, where players compete on a leaderboard for a share of $100,000. $3,000 is the top prize, but this tournament pays out to the top 2,000 players, so there are plenty of opportunities to win. What’s more, bets placed during the tournament will receive inflated points values in the loyalty points shop — more on this below.

DraftKings members can also refer a friend in order to claim up to $100 in casino credits. To receive the full $100, your referred friend must make a first deposit of $100 or more. A deposit of $25-$49 will pick up a $25 bonus, and a deposit of $50-$99 a $50 bonus. Members can refer up to five friends, and both the referrer and the friend will be given the bonus credits.


Cashier

DraftKings offers its casino players eight different depositing options: credit and debit cards, online banking, PayPal, Venmo, Play+, eCheck, and wire transfer. Some players may also be able to make a cash deposit up to $500 at participating retail stores, although this will depend on your location.

We love DraftKings’ approach to minimum deposits and withdrawals — just $5 on the former and a generous $1 on the latter. Withdrawal processing times are pretty quick across the board, and interestingly debit and credit cards offer the fastest payout speeds at just one day. High rollers will be drawn towards wire transfers, but will need to deposit a minimum of $20,000 on their first deposit.

These eight options represent a good cross-section of the payment methods you might see at other US casino sites, but there’s room for improvement here. We’d like to see a few more e-wallet options, as well as a prepaid card provider like Paysafecard. Pay by mobile services and cryptocurrencies are some of the other banking methods available elsewhere.

Withdrawals and Deposit

Min deposit Minimum Withdrawal Limit Withdrawal Processing Time
Debit and credit cards $5 $1 1 day
Bank transfer $5 $1 1-3 days
PayPal $5 $1 3-5 days
Venmo $5 $1 2-3 days
Play+ $5 None 2-4 days
eCheck $5 None Depends on withdrawal amount
Wire transfer $20,000 on first deposit, then $100,000 on subsequent deposits None 1-2 days

VIP and Loyalty Reward

DraftKings players will earn points with every bet they place at the casino. Known as Crowns, these points can be redeemed for DK dollars, free credits, and other casino-based rewards.

Higher rollers might also be interested in DraftKings’ VIP Program. Entry is by invitation only, and the casino keeps its cards to its chest regarding what constitutes VIP status. If your loyalty to the site impresses enough to get the call up, you’ll be in line to receive exclusive promotional offers, improved customer support, and access to personalized events.

Our Verdict

Since its launch in 2012, DraftKings has become one of the most recognizable online gambling brands in the US. Its specialities have historically been tied to its sportsbook and fantasy sports offering, but you can now add its online casino to that list. All three verticals are interchangeable under one account, and players can enjoy one of three welcome offers, VIP and loyalty bonuses, on-site tournaments, and a dedicated mobile app when they sign up. If we’re being super critical, we’d like to see a few more payment methods on the menu, but what’s available will satisfy the majority of players.

If you like the sound of DraftKings, click on through to the site, create an account, and get going with your choice of welcome bonus.
