There are two huge websites which dominate the world of Fantasy Sports – DraftKings and FanDuel; we’re looking at DraftKings in this article so you can decide for yourself if it looks like the destination for you. It’s fair to say that DraftKings offers the most sports on which to bet and not only does it include all those American sports, it also features soccer for those of us on this side of the pond.
Firstly let’s take a look at a list of those sports/activities, shown in brackets is the organisation from which you will draft your players:
- American Football (NFL, CFB)
- Basketball (NBA, CBB)
- Soccer (MLS, EPL, UEFA Champions League)
- Ice Hockey (NHL)
- Mixed Martial Arts
- Baseball (MLB)
- Motorsports (NASCAR
- Golf (PGA)
That’s a long list and therefore there is a competition on this website for you to join on any given day; of course certain sports have restricted seasons making them unavailable but don’t worry – there’ll always be an activity to take it’s place. There’ll usually be a freeroll if you’re feeling a bit skint (or just fancy a practice) but if you’re prepared to dust off the credit card then you can take part in competitions with prize pools of several million pounds.
Like other sites, DraftKings uses third party statistics providers such as Stats LLC and Opta so the scoring is always fair.
Let’s get to the important stuff then because we all want something for nothing when joining a new site. DraftKings offers all new players a 100% deposit bonus and that bonus cash is slowly released back to the player as real cash by earning Frequent Player Points (FFPs). Different numbers of FFPs are earned each time you enter a paid-for competition and each 100 FFPs equates to £1.00 returned to your account.
There’s a Refer-A-Friend option – if a friend joins up using your personalised link you will earn up to 35% of each entry they make.
There are also ongoing promotions which offer enhanced prizes on certain days to keep those all players loyal.
You really can’t go wrong with DraftKings, it offers a superior product and the widest range of sports to check out. You can even bet on eSports if that’s your thing. It’s a more complex website than Mondogoal for example but there’s far more on offer including some massive cash prizes, lots of help with strategy and specific news for each sport
