History of DraftKings

DraftKings

DraftKings first opened in 2012 as a one-on-one baseball competition. Its first day of operations was MLB opening day that year.

After forging a reputation as the leader in daily fantasy (you will probably have seen the TV commercials which flooded the airwaves recently), DK has moved into the online sportsbook industry.

The first legal sportsbook was launched in New Jersey on August 2018. At the time it was the first online sportsbook outside of Nevada, and it accepted over 1,000,000 bets in its first month.

DraftKings Sportsbook is partnered with land-based operation Resorts Atlantic City, through a license with New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. This allows them to provide odds on mobile apps and through their website to bettors in NJ. 

Mobile App

As you'd expect from a company with so much experience in the DFS market, the mobile betting app is a dream to use.

If you're new to sports betting, you'll find the DraftKings mobile app intuitive and straightforward to navigate. There's a 'Quick Start Guide' and help at every point if you need it.

Experienced bettors will also love the app as everything is within easy reach.

Draftkings LogoDraftKings offers an iOS app available for iPhones and iPads and an Android app. The application will determine whether you are in New Jersey before you try to deposit or place any bets. Having a WiFi connection generally speeds up this process.

Remember though; anybody can join and browse the odds in the app - you only have to be present in NJ to place bets.

Android App for DraftKings

Currently, Google doesn't allow betting apps to be downloaded from it's Google Play Store, so you'll need to download the app directly from the DK website.

Don't worry, it's completely secure, and the app will install quickly. You'll need to have location services enabled.

Itunes Download for DraftKings

DraftKings Mobile iTunes

Unlike their counterparts, Apple does allow betting apps in their store. You can download the DraftKings sportsbook app right here from the iTunes store.

The app has been very well received by iPhone and iPad users who have rated it 4.8 out of 5 stars after almost 20,000 ratings.

The Draftkings app is upgraded continuously and has a slick interface. You must be at least 17 years of age to download from the App Store.

Betting on Sports

The DraftKings mobile experience is intuitive. You're gambling with a company that has years of experience in designing an easy to use mobile interface.

DraftKings Mobile Front Page

From the opening screen, you'll see how easy the app is to navigate to the sport and market you want to bet on. Quick Links are easily visible at the top, showing the most significant current and upcoming events.

Under that, you'll see the section for live betting. This is where you can get your bets on anything that's happening right now. There's also a tab at the bottom of the app, which indicates the number of events currently in-play.

DraftKings Mobile Bet Slip

Live in-play markets are also shown on the home page with current scores. A simple tap on any of the odds allows you to add a bet to the bet slip, and another tap can select your bet amount.

Tons of Stats

One thing Draftkings has gotten right with their app is how many stats they offer for each sport.

If you're browsing, or want more in-depth details on a pick you fancy, the stats hub section is a must.

As you can see in the screenshot below, tennis offers ATS, O/U, average games, handicap stats and more - all of which can be narrowed down by season, head-to-head and by tournament type.

Similar stats are available for all major sports from European soccer leagues to the major US sports.

Bet Live In-Play

DraftKings offers betting live during games. You can even bet point-by-point on tennis matches with their fantastic new flash bet.

Most events that are on the DraftKings Sportsbook app for pre-game betting will turn in-play once the event starts. From NBA to MLB, Soccer, Tennis and more, you'll be covered.

As mentioned above, there is also a 'flash bet' section at the top of the app, which links to all live tennis matches...where you can bet point by point!

DraftKings Playbook

In a similar vein to the FanDuel 'TheDuel' blog, DraftKings has it's own content over at Draftkings Playbook.

DraftKings Playbook Blog

They provide sports betting news, fantasy picks, latest odds and betting advice, with plenty of new content going up every day.

The DraftKings sportsbook blog is more fantasy focused than it's FanDuel equivalent, but that might change as online betting becomes more prevalent in NJ.

It's still a great source of information and is updated plenty, so we recommend you check it out.

Sportsbook Pools

DraftKings Sports Pools LogoA new and unique DraftKings Sportsbook product is sportsbook pools, which offers you the chance to play against other bettors.

The pools are betting contests, where you make picks from a list of events. For example, the pool would be NFL Week 1, where you have to pick the winner from 5 games. Pick both sides, and that doubles the size of your entry.

Famous Name

Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley represents DraftKings

A few of the recently opened New Jersey sportsbooks have chosen famous names to represent them, be that in print or social media, or on TV.

DraftKings is no exception, opting for Hall of Fame NBA player and TV personality Charles Barkley to front their promos.

You'll see his face on some of their promotional materials, and in the betting guide on Draftkings.com.
