Draftkings Racebook 2020: What to Expect

Let’s review the future of DraftKings’ Racing.

Available Races and Tracks on DraftKings’ Racebook

DraftKings might not offer this specific product yet, but we do know that they will provide it shortly. They will have plenty of Tracks that we can wager on, and we are sure that they will provide races from both US tracks and International tracks. The types of Racing they will provide can be anything from Harness Racing to Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse. Betting on these tracks and races will come in the usual way. We expect they will provide all Horse Racing bets like Win, Show, Place, Trifecta, Exact, Superfecta, and others.

DraftKings Horse Racing Odds

DraftKings has always brought good odds to their customers, no matter if we're talking about their Sportsbook or DFS products. We are sure that they will provide excellent odds for their Racing platform. We all know that the highest odds in Horse Racing don't mean that that horse will win. It means that the horse with the highest odds has the largest pool.

DK Bonuses and Reward Programs

DraftKings has always been one of the best in the US market for Bonuses and Promotions. When they launch their Racing platform, they won't probably have as many bonuses as we are used to on their Sportsbook, but they will introduce a DK worthy welcome offer like the ones we are used to. DK might also connect their existing rewards program with the Racing product like their competitors.

DraftKings Racing FAQs

How can I contact the DraftKings Colorado Customer Support team?

You can contact DraftKings in one of the usual ways, such as e-mail, live chat, and phone number. You will see the links to those methods on the website or app once they release it.

What payment options would I have for depositing?

The available deposit methods will most likely be Credit/Debit card, PayPal, Prepaid Card, and PayNearMe. There might be more methods, but we can say for sure only after they release their Racing platform.

What payment options would I have for withdrawing?

We expect that you will have the same withdrawal options as other DK products. Those are ACH (E-Check), PayPal, Check, and Cash Pick Up if there are locations in one of the larger areas such as Cripple Creek, Central City, and Black Hawk.

Will there be land-based betting locations in CO?

We aren't sure if there would be land-based locations for DK Racing, but we're confident that if there are, they would be in Cripple Creek, Black Hawk, or Central City.

How long would it take for my withdrawals to get processed?

That would depend on the payment method you are using to withdraw. ACH (E-Check) and PayPal usually take up to a week to process, and Checks may take longer depending on the delivery service.

Will I have to use Geolocation to access the desktop Racing platform?

Yes, considering not all states allow Racing wagers, we expect that to play from a desktop, you would need a Geolocation add-on.

DraftKings Racebook Review: Additional Features

User Experience with the Platform

The DK Racing platform wouldn’t disappoint us just like their other platforms haven't. We expect that they will have a user-friendly design and layout that features two colors, like in the other products (DFS – orange and grey, Sportsbook – green and grey). All of the links we would need like the available Tracks, Promotions, and Account would be placed somewhere easy-to-find, and if ever need help, we would always be able to contact their Support team for assistance.

Mobile App Details

DraftKings already has an app for Live-Streaming events, but that was for their other products. We can't say for sure, but we expect them to either launch one app for Racing and use the DK Live app for the streaming, launch two apps (one for Racing and one for Racing Streams) or launch a single app where you can both place bets on Racing and watch the races – all in one. We can't be sure which option they would pick going forward, but we are confident that they will at least launch a DK Racing app where you can place bets, see the latest race information and access your account. It will most likely be available for iOS and Android, like their other apps.

Live-Streaming

We hope that the popular bookie launches live-streaming along with their Racing platform. That will bring many new customers to their doorstep, please existing DK customers, and ensure that they are growing. They probably won't charge anything for the feature, but to use it, you will have to have a verified account along with a positive balance in it. You can also use the feature if you don't have a positive balance if you place a wager within the last twenty-four hours. We can't be sure, but they also might require you to wager on some of the races before you can watch them.

DraftKings Racing Review: Our Opinion

DraftKings is a well-known name when it comes to wagering in the US. Their Sportsbook and DFS brands have attracted many customers, and we expect that they will also be the case when they release their Racing brand. Another bold prediction is that their bonuses for new and existing customers will also be high-quality, just like they are on their other platforms. Of course, we won't expect them to add new payment options that the other platforms don't feature, so they might not be as perfect on that front as they can be, but that will be okay considering they are haven't even started yet. We are sure that they will have plenty of features and payment options for all of their platforms in the future. Now we can only wait for them to launch their Racing platform to see with what they would surprise us and if any of our predictions about it are correct.
