Rules of Play

MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS

1 player = 1 account

You can’t make the Hall of Fame twice. So, to keep things competitive and fair, players are only allowed to have one account.
See Terms and Conditions >

LINEUP SHARING

Use your skill, not somebody else’s.

Selling, buying and co-creating lineups with another user to gain an unfair advantage will land you in the sin bin. Learn more about allowable and prohibited behaviors in our Community Guidelines.

NO EMPLOYEES IN CONTESTS

DraftKings employees are not your competition.

When you enter a public contest, you don’t have to worry about going up against DraftKings employees. It’s just you vs. other fantasy sports players.

A Fair Playing Field

EXPERIENCE BADGES

Know exactly who you’re playing.

Player Badges signify contest entry milestones for accomplished players. Anyone with an Experience Badge is ineligible for Beginner or Casual Contests. However, if a player earns a badge after contest entry, they will remain in the contest.

CONTEST ELIGIBILITY

Provisions we've put in place thanks to player feedback.

The highest-volume players are ineligible to enter contests if the entry fee is less than $3. They are also ineligible to enter contests when the entry fee is less than $5 if the prize pool is less than $25,000 guaranteed. All contests with an entry fee less than $5 are 20 entries max, with the special exception of mini-MAX contests.

Contest Transparency

At DraftKings, we’re not pulling trick plays. We believe transparency is important and are committed to maintaining a clear and open player ecosystem. We want you to know what you’re playing in and who you’re up against, every time.
