DraftKings bookmaker office

DraftKings bookmaker office

The point of this online game is as follows: users of the site create a virtual team of professional athletes and compete against each other. The better the selected players perform in reality, the more points the client receives. The one who ends up with the most points gets a share of the prize pool, which is formed from the entry fees.

DraftKings is one of the two largest fantasy sports operators, which is very popular in the United States. But the site also has a betting section – a classic version of a bookmaker, which will be discussed in this review.

Historical background

DraftKings was founded in 2012. The first product was an online fantasy baseball game where two players competed. The company immediately attracted attention and within a year of opening, it was receiving million-dollar investments.

In 2014, DraftKings struck a deal with the NHL that involved mutual PR. Later, under a similar scheme, the company signed an agreement with the American Baseball League. In 2019, the NFL joined the list of partners.

The bookmaker DraftKings was launched in 2018.

In 2021, the site has an audience of about 5 million users.


The portal is owned by DraftKings Inc, which is headquartered on the island of Malta. Bookmaking activity is licensed by the local gambling commission.

Why players choose DraftKings

The site’s audience is made up exclusively of bettors from the United States.

This brand is popular in the states due to the main product – fantasy sports. The popularity of this platform promotes the bookmaker. The company operates legally in the U.S. and offers good conditions for betting on American sports, thanks to which it has gained popularity among local bettors.

Registration and verification

To create a new account, you need to fill out a form with personal information.

Registration is available only for U.S. residents: in the address you cannot specify the country, but instead you can choose one of the states, it is also necessary to specify the social security number.

Immediately after registration, the deposit function is blocked: the user must send photos of documents to confirm the identity and place of residence.

Line and coverage

If you compare with other bookmakers, the line is competitive only for American sports – for them they give a wide coverage with a good selection of non-standard bets.

Betting on sports at DraftKings

The structure of the sections in the BC is slightly different from the sites that are familiar to Russian bettors.


DraftKings bookmaker is designed for Americans, so the emphasis in the line is on the appropriate sports: baseball, American soccer, basketball, hockey. The event listings for these disciplines include most of the bets you can find in other betting shops.

European soccer, tennis and other sports are poorly represented – the number of additional bets is below average.


In terms of the choice of sports events and additional bets Live section does not differ from the pre-match.

The functionality of the section with online sports betting at DraftKings includes a tracker with statistics and betting buyout. Video broadcasts are not available.

What you can bet on

The line includes the following sports: soccer (European, American, Australian), hockey (on ice or grass), basketball, tennis, volleyball, baseball, handball, boxing, badminton, beach volleyball, cricket, cycling, darts, golf, horse racing, MMA, motorsports, Olympics, softball, rugby, surfing, swimming, ping-pong, water polo.

Non-sports categories (politics, TV shows, etc.) are not in the lineup.

For many disciplines, long-term betting on the outcome of competitions is available.

Sporting events

DraftKings is one of the best bookmakers when you compare just the American leagues. The line includes all available divisions, and in basketball and American soccer even student leagues are available for betting.

European soccer, tennis and other sports are represented by the standard selection of major events that all bookmakers have.

DraftKings will open two sports clubs in Washington at the Tulalip Tribe Casino

DraftKings announced Wednesday an exclusive partnership with the Tulalip Tribe of Washington State that will bring DraftKings retail sportsbooks to the state.

Plans call for DraftKings Sportsbook locations at Tulalip Resort Casino and Quil Ceda Creek Casino, located just 30 minutes north of Seattle in Tulalip.

Initial plans for DraftKings Sportsbook’s design at Tulalip Resort Casino, pending licensing and regulatory approval, will include a 5,000-square-foot space with a 50-foot video wall, more than two dozen booths and eight ticket booths. The design of DraftKings Sportsbook at Quil Ceda Creek Casino is still in the early planning stages, but it is expected to feature state-of-the-art technology and have the same world-class betting experience as all DraftKings-branded retail licensed casinos, the company said.

Once operational, Washington will become the 19th state in which DraftKings operates its Sportsbook product.

In an official press release, Teri Gobin, chairman of the Tulalip Tribe, said of this new partnership:

“As we prepare to open Sportsbooks, we are excited to announce an exclusive partnership with the best in the business, DraftKings. We’re ready to take our gaming experience to the next level. Like Tulalip, DraftKings is committed to excellence, and together we will provide sports fans with a unique experience. We’re looking forward to allowing customers to share our journey as we build the newest addition to our entertainment centers.”

Michael Cybort, Senior Director of Retail Sports Books at DraftKings, added:

“Today is a momentous day for DraftKings as we are about to expand our sports betting coverage in the great Pacific Northwest, available in both land-based clubs and online. In partnership with the Tulalip Tribe of Washington State, we look forward to bringing the very best in real money gaming to a state that is home to passionate fans of major professional sports leagues.”

Last July, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee signed treaty amendments with 15 Washington tribes, including the Tulalip Tribes, that allowed them to begin accepting retail sports betting in September.
