DraftKings Mobile App Experience

Sports Betting on the Mobile App

DraftKings offers a wide array of competitions to wager on. Once you open the app, you can go to the “A-Z Sports” section and see all the available sports you can bet on. The markets available are more for prevalent sports and less for the niche ones. You can choose the specific market or markets from the category above the match and odds displayed. DraftKings offers bets on all the popular US leagues such as the NFL, MLB, NHL, UFC, or NBA.

  • Open your app and log-in.
  • If you haven’t deposited into your account, do it.
  • Browse through the available sports and markets and find one or more you like.
  • Click on the odds you want for each market/wager.
  • Go to your bet slip and input the stake amounts for all of the best there.
  • Click on “Place Bet.”

Top DraftKings App Features

  • Live-Streaming
  • In-Game Betting
  • DraftKings Sportsbook Missions
  • Cash-Out
  • Pools

I loved all of these features, especially the live betting and streaming. Thanks to them, I could place a bet during the game and watch as the events unfold in real-time. I can also cash-out if I want to, which is a great choice to have. The DK Missions are a great type of promotion that gets you extra rewards, and Pools have an interesting betting concept.

DraftKings – Additional Assets

Platform Experience

I enjoyed using the DK mobile app. It was easy-to-navigate, and the interface was mobile and user-friendly. I didn't have to wait for more than a second to load the different pages, which are fast and overall, and it was super easy to locate everything I needed.

Live-Streaming Feature

Every Sportsbook needs a live-streaming feature, and DK provides it to its customers for free. To use the feature, you have to have a positive balance in your account, and you also have to validate your account first. If you don't have a positive balance, you have to have placed a wager in the last 24 hours. If any of these conditions aren't met, you can't live-stream events on your app or desktop.

In-Play Wagering

Live betting has become very popular in the sports wagering scene ever since it was created. With it, you can place a bet on events after they started. The odds change very fast, so you will have to be quick to place your wager, or the price will change. Whenever in-play is available, you can use the cash-out features as well.

DraftKings Mobile Bonuses

DraftKings has two offers for new customers on their website, and you can benefit from both of them at the same time. The first offer you get after you enter the unique promo code and you get up to $500 risk-free wager. The second offer doesn't require a promo code, and you can receive up to $500 on your first deposit. There are specific terms and conditions you need to follow for both promotions, and you can check them out on DK's site or app.

DraftKings – Final Mobile App Review

DraftKings is a popular sports betting platform all around the US. They started as a DFS provider but added a Sportsbook to their list of services. Their land-based location in Colorado is in Golden Gulch Casino in Black Hawk and they may partner with other Casinos in Central City or Cripple Creek in the future. They offer their new and existing customers fantastic promotions and other ways they can get rewards. Their mobile app platform is original and user-friendly. The app also has the same features available as the site, such as live streaming, pools, cash-out in-play wagering, etc. They have a few things to work on to improve their mobile app like adding mobile promotions, for example, but overall, they offer a great app which can be an adequate replacement for the old-fashioned desktop platform.
