Having operated as a daily fantasy sportsbook platform for several years, DraftKings moved into the legal sports betting market in late 2018. DraftKings struck deals with major sports leagues and ESPN, and began to offer betting on sports markets beyond those covered by daily fantasy sports. It’s now one of the leading sports betting sites in New Jersey.
DraftKings’ interface is intuitive and provides a number of gaming options. You can play in-play wagers, and place parlay bets. The site also offers tutorials on specific sports.
One of the most interesting features of DraftKings is the live betting option. You can place bets during a game, and then cash out when the game is over. This feature allows you to lock in your profits, and hedge against your downside risk.
DraftKings offers several types of betting markets, including player prop bets, parlay bets, and standard bets. It also has a comprehensive list of sports and markets to choose from.
In addition to its sports betting offerings, DraftKings also offers an impressive number of markets in non-sports events, including cycling, college sports, minor leagues, and volleyball. They also offer a mobile app for Android and iOS devices, which makes it easy to place bets from anywhere.
DraftKings has a number of banking options, including credit card, PayPal, and standard bets. Most methods of banking are instantaneous, but credit cards can be declined for gaming transactions.
