When you’re deep in the selection process for picking a new Fantasy Sports site, arguably the most important thing is the size of the bonus you’re going to receive. You might argue that usability, sports covered and customer service are the vital ingredients but we don’t believe you – what you want is a giant welcome package and lots of ongoing promotions. DraftKings offers the following.

Welcome Bonus

This is only available for new players and it’s a mix between bonus cash and loyalty rewards. Sign up and your first deposit will attract a 100% bonus but that money is returned to you in quite a creative way.

DraftKings runs a loyalty reward scheme in which players earn Frequent Player Points (FFPs) each time a paid-for contest is entered. Different numbers of FFPs are awarded based on the cost of the competition. Each 100 FFPs earned returns £1.00 of bonus cash to the player which can be used as real money.

It’s an interesting way to attract new players and it obviously rewards loyalty and longevity.

Refer-A-Friend

If you are an existing customer you can ask your friends to sign up using a personalised link – you will then receive up to 35% of each entry they make.

Ongoing Promotions

Like all good Fantasy Sports sites, DraftKings keeps things interesting by offering a range of time-limited competitions depending on which sports are currently in season and special events. For example at the time of writing, new players can claim a free entry to a paid-for competition as well as the usual 100% deposit bonus.

You may also like to take advantage of one of the promotions which raises money for charity – these come around regularly and are a chance to earn some brownie points before diving in to your next team selection.
