ELIGIBILITY

All registered Players are eligible to participate in the Program provided that you have an active account and are in good standing, and that you comply with these Terms, the TOU, and Privacy Notice.

INVITATION OPTIONS

The Program offers several ways to invite friends to play on the Website. All options are detailed on the Program Site. All options incorporate the use of a Link, which tracks the invitations you will be sending, as well as the performance status of your Referred Friend(s). Referred Friends will only be credited to you if the Referred Friend(s) create a DraftKings account after clicking on a Link and successfully completes a Committed Action . All Links are available and detailed on the Program Site. If a Player signs up without using a Link, DraftKings will not manually give you credit for the friend.

You shall receive the DFS Reward if you send a referral Link from the Daily Fantasy Sports referral page and the Referred Friend registers from that Daily Fantasy Sports referral Link and completes a Committed Action, regardless if they make their first Committed Action on the Daily Fantasy Sports website or the Sportsbook website or the Casino site. You shall receive the SB Reward if you send the referral Link from the Sportsbook referral page and the Referred Friend registers from that Sportsbook referral Link and makes a Committed Action, regardless if they make their first Committed Action on the Daily Fantasy Sports website or the Sportsbook website or the casino website. You shall receive the Casino Reward if you send the referral Link from the Casino referral page and the Referred Friend registers from that Casino referral Link and makes a Committed Action, regardless if they make their first Committed Action on the Daily Fantasy Sports website or the Sportsbook website. Your Referred Friend will receive the Refer a Friend Reward based on where they make their first Committed Action, regardless of if you sent them a Link from the Daily Fantasy Sports referral page or the Sportsbook/ Casino referral page. You shall only be eligible for one (1) total Reward per Referred Friend. For example, if a Referred Friend successfully registers for and completes a Committed Action into a Daily Fantasy Sports account, you receive a refer-a-friend reward, and the Referred Friend later signs up for and successfully completes a Committed Action into a DraftKings Sportsbook account, you will not receive another refer-a-friend reward. You shall not receive either a SB/Casino Reward or DFS Reward if your Referred Friend already has an account on either the Daily Fantasy Sports website or the Sportsbook/Casino website.

FREE BET RESTRICTIONS

Free bets may be awarded from time to time as the SB/Casino Reward under this Refer-a-Friend Program. Bonus stake of the free bet is non-refundable and is not included in any returns or winnings. This means that if the free bet wins, the original free bet stake is not returned to the user; only the profit will be credited. For example purposes only, if a $5 free bet is placed on even odds and wins, only the profit of $5 will be credited to the applicable account. Failure to claim the free bet within thirty (30) days will void the award. Free bet is not redeemable for cash, non-transferable and cannot be combined with any other offers/promotions.
