DraftKings App Review

DraftKings established themselves as a leading brand in the world of fantasy sports over the past few years. They took advantage of the modifications of the laws to break into the sports betting industry. They are now a fast-growing sportsbook set to promptly follow the legalization of sports betting in each new state. At the moment, DraftKings are available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Indiana &New Hampshire.

In order to follow the latest trends in the sports betting industry, they have created a mobile app which works just about right on both iOS and Android devices.

DraftKings App Look and Feel

We tested the app as soon as it was launched only to be disappointed with frequent geo-location checks. There were instances where we were prevented from placing a bet because of the combination of these checks and a poor wifi connection. Luckily, DraftKings have significantly reduced the tests of late and have not witnessed any kind of lagging recently.

The interface is clean and intuitive, for both DraftKings Android and iOS versions, which came as no surprise as the company have already proved themselves with a fabulous daily fantasy sports app in the past. It all works properly thanks to the fast Kambi backend.

The main betting markets (moneyline, spread, totals) hold the primary position. It only proves the intention of getting the app as easy to use as possible for those new to the sports betting world. If you want to look for special picks or markets for the less popular leagues, there is a navigation bar at the top of the screen.

Game/Odds selection vs Desktop

We can say the mobile app is a genuine copy of the web page, the only difference being that it is adjusted to small screens. In terms of the games and the odds, there is no distinction between the two.

The main attention is on the most popular US Leagues (NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB), but there is also a wide range of other sports on the menu, including the following:

Sports to bet on
BoxingGolfMoto sportsTennis
CricketHockeyRugby
DartsMMASoccer

Whereas we were thrilled with the versatility of betting markets, the odds disappointed us. The pricing on the DraftKings app is less customer-friendly than the one we found at most other sportsbooks in the United States.

The DraftKings App betting features

To break down the DraftKings sports app review, we’d mention the following elements as its key features:

  • The interface adjusted to beginners – The simplest betting markets (moneyline, spread, totals) are easily visible for every event, while you need to scroll a bit to discover more markets.
  • Pre-game and In-play betting selection – For a relatively young app, DraftKings offer a tremendous range of both pre-game and in-play betting markets.
  • Customer support – Customer support is available at any time each day

Pros

  • Speed and simplicity
  • Customer support
  • Range of betting markets
  • Extensive in-play betting offering

Cons

  • The odds are lower than elsewhere on most events
