Draftkings Sportsbook App Download
Installing the DraftKings Sportsbook App
DraftKings is most famous for their DFS product but they’ve had an online sportsbook since 2018. Their app is the fastest way to get into the action and manage your bets. To get started the first thing you’ll need to do is download the app. Click here to get started. You can find the DraftKings app in the Apple App Store. Android users won’t find the DraftKings app in Google Play because DraftKings only has one app and doesn’t have individual sportsbook apps for each state where online gambling is allowed. This means you must download and manually install the sportsbook app directly from DraftKings. The app has been scanned and we’ve placed bets at DraftKings using the app and found that its safe and doesn’t require any unnecessary permissions.
Once installed you’ll find that you’ll be able to place bets on all the same sports and events you see on the full computer website. The app is easy to navigate with the Sportsbook link at the top left side. You’ll also find links to the DraftKings Casino, Pools, a social feed and, of course, DFS along the top of the app screen. Below the navigation bar you’ll find slides featuring current promos and special events. Below that you’ll find Quick Links to sports and leagues with events for betting and a feed of currently live events. Along the bottom you’ll find links to live events, your betslip, and a link to all available sports and promos at DraftKings.
Signing up at DraftKings
After installing the app you’ll need to sign up your account at DraftKings. When the app launches the first time you’ll be prompted to sign in with your existing DraftKings account. If you don’t have one, tap on Sign Up to create your account. First, you’ll choose your username and password and agree to the terms and conditions at DraftKings. Tap Next to proceed to the next screen, where you’ll enter your name, birth date and the last 4 digits of your SSN.
On the last screen your account info will be verified electronically. If there are any issues with verifying your account info you will be presented with the option to take a photo of your ID to validate your registration info.
DraftKings Sportsbook Locations
Online sports betting is different from daily fantasy sports because of the regulations that govern each. Online sports betting is more highly regulated and is only legal in 11 states. Because of this the DraftKings app requires precise GPS location when using the app. The app will request location priviliges when you first launch the app and it will check your location after you sign in the first time. In order to place a bet you must be physically located in each of the states where online sports betting is legal:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- West Virginia
If you cannot be verified to be located in any of these states you will not be allowed to place any bets at the Sportsbook. You can still view events and the details for each game but any attempt to place a bet will be blocked. You’ll be allowed to deposit to your account if you’re not located in any of the 11 states where DraftKings is available but you have to tap Deposit Anyway after being notified that you’re located in an ineligible state.
