Achievements FAQ

How does “Rewards Claiming” work?

After you complete an Achievements milestone in any sport, you can claim your rewards for that milestone by clicking the “claim” button at the top of the Achievements page for that sport. Once you click the “claim” button, the rewards will be deposited directly into your account. Rewards will be claimable within 24 hours after completing a milestone. You can claim these rewards anytime until 30 days after that Achievement program concludes.

When will I be able to claim rewards?

Rewards will be claimable within 24 hours after completing a milestone. You can claim these rewards anytime until 30 days after that Achievement program concludes. Rewards will no longer be claimable 30 days after the Achievements program ends that the rewards were completed in.

Can I claim more than 1 reward at once?

Yes! If you complete more than 1 milestone on the same day or you decide to wait and claim multiple rewards at once, you can click through all your completed milestones and claim rewards for everything that you have accomplished.

How long do I have to claim my rewards?

Achievement rewards will be claimable until 30 days after the Achievements program ends in which they were completed. Rewards will no longer be claimable 30 days after the Achievements program ends.

Why do I have to claim my Achievement rewards?

Claimable Achievement Rewards allow DraftKings players to easily track exactly what rewards they are earning for the progress they make within a sport. Claimable rewards also provide players with the flexibility to claim their prizes when they want to, rather than having them automatically distributed the day after completing a milestone. But don't worry, the reward amounts for each milestone will not change.

What are Crowns?

Crowns (formerly FPPs) are a form of currency that DraftKings players can spend on contest tickets and merchandise in the DK Shop. How many Crowns you earn each month also determines your Daily Rewards Status Tier for the next month. Crowns can only be used on DraftKings or in the DK Store and have no cash value and are non-transferrable.

Will there be Achievements for other sports?

We currently offer Achievements for PGA, MLB, NBA and NHL. Given the popularity and demand of these programs, we are looking to expand on our Achievement offerings into additional sports. We hope to have updates to share in the weeks ahead.
