About DraftKings

We offer Daily and Weekly Fantasy Sports contests for cash prizes in all of the major sports. Our rapid-fire contests are a much shorter duration than the traditional season-long leagues and require no team management after the draft. Our salary cap draft format takes just minutes to complete, unlike the hours-long snake drafts in traditional leagues. We offer new contests every day of the season, and our winners are crowned nightly. Payouts happen immediately after the games - no more waiting until the end of the season to collect winnings! Is Playing On DraftKings Legal? We are a US based skill games company, and all of our contests are operated 100% legally. The US Government considers fantasy sports a game of skill, as well as 44 of the 50 states. We do not allow residents of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Montana and Vermont to participate in our contests due to state-specific regulation against cash prize awards. We also require our users to be 18 years of age or older (19 in Alabama and Nebraska). We take the legal status of our contests very seriously. If you have any questions related to this topic, please contact us. Why should I choose DraftKings? During MLB 2012, we will be running over $5,000 in free contests with cash payouts, including a daily $100 Freeroll! Easy to enter, right off the home page every time. All of our games are daily, which means you can play today and win cash tomorrow. Unlike full season leagues, you're never out of contention - every day starts fresh at DraftKings.
