What are Casino Deposit Bonus play-through requirements? (US)

What are play-through requirements?

A Casino Deposit Bonus play-through requirement is a condition of a Casino Deposit Bonus that a player needs to meet to complete a Casino Deposit Bonus and have the Casino Bonus Funds and any winnings associated with the Casino Deposit Bonus be eligible for withdrawal as cash. In most cases, play-through requirements apply to both your original deposit amount and the bonus amount. The play-through requirements define the number of times the funds need to be wagered, or in certain cases, the amount that needs to be played to earn Casino Bonus Funds.

Frequently asked questions:

What is a play-through period? 

The play-through requirements must be completed during the applicable Play-Through Period. To avoid any confusion or doubt, the time frame is measured in hours starting from the time the Casino Bonus Funds are added to your account. For example, three (3) days is measured as 72 hours from the time the Casino Bonus Funds are added to your account while thirty (30) days is measured as 720 hours from the time the Casino Bonus Funds are added to your account. 

Play-through periods will be defined in the terms and conditions of the promotional offer.

What are contribution rates?

All Casino Bonus Funds have a required number of times they need to be played through before the winnings can be withdrawn (i.e. 1x, 10x, 15x, 20x).  While a customer can wager on many Casino games available on DraftKings Casino, not every game contributes towards the play-through requirements at the same contribution percentage. Most games do contribute toward the play-through requirement but can contribute differently based on what game is being played. Here are the current contribution rates:

Game Category Contribution Percentage:
Most Slots, Rocket, Keno, Virtual Sports 100%
Blackjack, Other Table Games, & Select Slots* 20%
Live Dealer Games, Video Poker, Baccarat, and Roulette 10%
Craps & Other Variety Games 0%

What happens if the requirements aren't met during the Play-Through Period?

If the play-through requirements are not met within the Play-through Period, any winnings, bonus funds tied to the Casino Deposit Bonus, and wagered portion of your original deposit will expire and be forfeited.

What happens if I placed wagers before forfeiting my bonus?

At any point, you may decide to forfeit your Casino Deposit Bonus and remove yourself from the promotion. Forfeiture of the Casino Deposit Bonus will result in the loss of the wagered portion of the original deposit, any remaining bonus funds, and any winnings tied to the forfeited Casino Deposit Bonus promotion.
