If you’re a new, or even seasoned sports fantasy player, you need to get over to Draft Kings to enjoy one of the best offerings in its class.
So why are we so impressed with Draft Kings?
To begin with, it has arguably the best app interface on Android and Apple with contests across all price ranges – from playing for free for the absolute novice (50 games or fewer), to only having to wager small amounts like $0.25 to wagers that run into the thousands for the pros -across a staggeringly diverse sport offering.
Website or App? Which do you prefer? We definitely rate the app as the superior option. The website is good once one is familiar with all its functionality, but for new users, the homepage specifically is very “busy” making figuring out the navigation a bit more time-consuming.
The app is seamlessly organized and assists players in finding contests by sport and league type, so that one gets to the game in the shortest possible time. Setting up the line-ups is also quick and easy to do thanks to some very smart design. A feature we especially enjoy is that when a player is in the current day’s play, he is indicated by a green tick mark against his name - this is especially helpful when creating multiple line-ups in baseball.
So, which games and sports are on offer? All the major professional sports and leagues are offered, including Mixed Martial Arts, which is a bonus:
*Soccer –English Premier League and UEFA
*College football & basketball
And if you are concerned about the legality of such a vast offering, you needn’t be worried. Daily sports fantasy gaming is legal, provided that you are of appropriate age; and in states where the legislation is unclear on sports fantasy gaming, Draft King will safeguard you by not being accessible.
An aspect of Draft Kings that puts it in a league of its own, is that not only do they make it easy to upload your account with credit via credit card and Pay Pal, but withdrawing one’s winnings is equally efficient - this can be done via Pay Pal or by check (the latter of course, is a longer process of about a week).
So often uploading cash to play online or in-app is a breeze, but withdrawing is problematic, or takes days more to clear - this isn’t the case with Draft Kings. Their customer service has in our experience only ever been efficient with them re-crediting accounts promptly when players have entered the wrong games in error.
In summary, it’s a great option all around for daily sports fantasy enthusiasts. Try it out!
