Frequently Asked Questions

What Is DraftKings?

We offer Daily and Weekly Fantasy Sports contests for cash prizes in all of the five major sports (MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA and PGA) as well as college football and basketball. Our rapid-fire contests are a much shorter duration than the traditional season-long leagues and require no team management after the draft. Our salary cap draft format takes just minutes to complete, unlike the hours-long snake drafts in traditional leagues. We offer new contests every day of the season, and our winners are crowned nightly. Payouts happen immediately after the games - no more waiting until the end of the season to collect winnings!

Is Playing On DraftKings Legal?

We are a US-based skill games company, and all of our contests are operated 100% legally under United States and Canadian law. The US Government and 45 of the 50 states consider fantasy sports a game of skill. We do not allow residents of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, or Washington to participate in our contests due to state-specific regulation against cash prize awards. We also require our users to be 18 years of age or older (19 in Alabama and Nebraska). We take the legal status of our contests very seriously. If you have any questions related to this topic, please contact us.

What Types of Contests Do you Offer?

  • GPP (Guaranteed Prize Pool) Contests – GPPs are contests that payout the entire prize pool, regardless if the contest fills or not.
  • Head-to-Head- Winner takes all in these one-on-one contests. 
  • Leagues- Play against two or more opponents at a time in smaller field contests.
  • 50/50’s –  Teams finishing in the top-half of the field win cash no matter the number of entries.
  • Qualifier Contests –  Win tickets that can be used for free entry into a higher stakes contest
  • Multipliers- Great way for a bankroll boost! Win 3x TO 10x your entry fee in these contests.
  • Steps- Advance at each step by winning a ticket to the next level. Jump in at Step 1 for just $2.00 and work your way to Step 4 to win cash!
  • Beginner- Play against other beginners in up to 50 contests for each sport. Once you reach that limit, per sport, these contests will no longer be available to enter.
  • Multi-Match Head-to-Head-  Contest enters you into 20 unique Head-to-Head matchups, under one entry, where you win cash with each win.  The prize structure mimics the payout you would receive if you played each person in a single Head-to-head contest.   20 people will win cash in this 21 person tournament.
  • Freeroll Contests – These contests are free to enter and any winnings will be paid with Entry Tickets or DraftKings Dollars

Why Should I Choose DraftKings?

DraftKings offers the most aggressive lineup of FREE contests with Cash Prizes in Fantasy Sports. All of our contests are easy to enter, right off the home page. All of our games are daily (or weekly in NFL), which means you can play today and win cash tomorrow. Unlike full season leagues, you're never out of contention – every day starts fresh at DraftKings.

What is a Salary Cap Draft?

Each professional athlete available to draft in our leagues has a salary, and you have a fixed $50,000 budget to spend. You select a full roster of players while staying under the Salary Cap. Salary Cap drafting takes just minutes to complete, unlike the hours-long snake drafts in traditional leagues.
