Frequently asked questions

What is a contribution rate?

While a customer can wager on many Casino games available on DraftKings, not every game contributes the same percentage towards a Casino Deposit Bonus’s play through requirement. Here are the current contribution percentages:

Chart displaying game categories and their contribution percentages to wagering requirements. There are three rows with different categories. The first row is titled 'Most Slots, Rocket, Keno, & Virtual Sports' with an accompanying icon of a playing cards hand and poker chips, indicating a 100% contribution percentage. The second row, titled 'Blackjack, Other Table Games, Live Dealer Games, Roulette, & Select Slots' includes a similar icon, and shows a 20% contribution percentage. The third row, 'Craps, Video Poker, Baccarat, & Other Variety Games,' with an accompanying icon of a playing cards hand and poker chips, indicating a 0% contribution percentage. Each contribution percentage is represented by a bag of money with a percentage symbol, suggesting the proportion of wager that contributes to the overall requirement.

  • *To find more information about Select Slots (and for a list of Select Slot games), please go to the What is a Casino play through requirement page.
  • Important Note: This list is subject to change.
  • Important Note: Any games with a 0% contribution rate will not contribute toward the play through requirement for a Casino Deposit Bonus. Please be aware that any winnings earned from using Casino Deposit Bonus funds on a 0% contribution rate game would be considered locked winnings until the play through requirement is met.

What is a play through requirement?

A play through requirement is the amount you must play through on casino games to complete the bonus offer and for the associated winnings to be eligible for withdrawal as cash.

The play through requirement is determined using the matched Casino Deposit Bonus amount and the play through multiplier stated in the offer.

  • Please note that the play through multiplier is specified in the Casino Deposit Bonus terms and conditions.

As an example only: If the Casino Deposit Bonus is a 50% deposit match up to $1,500 with a 10x play through multiplier and you deposit $3,000.

Image showing a 50% casino deposit bonus match. To the left, there's an icon depicting a spread of cash, representing a monetary deposit. Next to this, the text reads 'Deposited: $3,000'. Below the cash icon, a second icon shows a money bag with a 50% symbol, encircled by an arrow, illustrating a bonus match offer. The accompanying text is 'Casino Deposit Bonus Matched: 50%' and '1,500 Casino Bonus Funds', explaining that a $3,000 deposit has been matched with a 50% bonus, amounting to an additional $1,500 in casino bonus funds.

You play through the original deposit amount of $3,000 once, and then play through the $1,500 in Casino Deposit Bonus Funds 10 times. However, not every game contributes the same percentage towards a Casino Deposit Bonus’s play through requirement. 

 For cumulative play through totals, see the below examples: 

  • Cumulative play through total is $15,000 if playing a qualifying slot game that has a 100% contribution rate ($1,500 x 10 = $15,000).
  • Cumulative play through total is $75,000 if playing on Live Dealer Blackjack because Live Dealer Blackjack has a 20% contribution rate.

Graphic detailing the Play Through Requirement for a Casino Deposit Bonus. It states 'Play Through Requirement: 1,500 Casino Bonus Funds x 10.' At the 100% Contribution Rate, the play through amount is $15,000 for games including Most Slots, Rocket, Keno, and Virtual Sports, indicated by an icon with a hand of cards and poker chips. For the 20% Contribution Rate, the requirement is $75,000 and applies to games such as Blackjack, Other Table Games, Live Dealer Games, Roulette, and Select Slots*, represented by an icon with a hand of cards and poker chips. A calendar icon at the bottom suggests a Play Through Period of 7 days (168 hours).

  • See the “What is a contribution rate?” above for more information.

If you meet the play through requirement within the 7 calendar day period (168 hours) from the time you receive the matching Casino Deposit Bonus Funds, you’ll be rewarded any remaining funds tied to the bonus in withdrawable cash. However, in the event you don’t meet the play through requirement within the 7 calendar day period (168 hours), any wagered portion of the original deposit, wagered winnings (funds won from original deposit and then wagered), remaining Casino Deposit Bonus Funds, and winnings tied to the Casino Deposit Bonus Funds will expire and be forfeited.

What happens to my funds if I don’t meet the play through requirements or decide to forfeit the Casino Deposit Bonus?

If you don’t meet the play through requirements before the play through period expires, it will result in the loss of any wagered portion of the original deposit, wagered winnings (funds won from the original deposit and then wagered), any remaining Casino Deposit Bonus Funds, and any winnings tied to the forfeited Casino Deposit Bonus promotion. 

  • At any point, a player may decide to forfeit their Casino Deposit Bonus and remove themselves from the promotion.

Forfeiture of the Casino Deposit Bonus will also result in the loss of any wagered portion of the original deposit, wagered winnings (funds won from placing wagers with the original deposit and then wagered), any remaining Casino Deposit Bonus Funds, and any winnings tied to the forfeited Casino Deposit Bonus promotion.

  • A forfeiture is not reversible and no exceptions will be made.

What if I play a game that does not contribute 100% toward the play through requirement?

If playing a game that doesn’t contribute 100% toward the play through requirement, a lower percentage, such as 20%, will count towards the play through requirement.

  • Important Note: Any games with a 0% contribution rate will not contribute toward the play through requirement for a Casino Deposit Bonus. Please be aware that any winnings earned from playing with Casino Deposit Bonus funds on a 0% contribution rate game would be considered locked winnings until the play through requirement is met.

As an example only: If a customer wagers $100 on Live Dealer Blackjack, only 20% of the wager would contribute towards the play through requirement, which would be $20. Informational graphic explaining the contribution of a blackjack bet towards a wagering requirement. It displays an icon with a hand of playing cards to represent the game of blackjack. Adjacent to the icon is the text 'Funds Wagered: $100 bet on Blackjack.' Below this, a money bag icon with a '%' symbol illustrates the contribution rate. The text explains '20% Contribution Rate: 20% of $100 = $20,' indicating that a $100 bet on blackjack contributes $20 towards the wagering requirement.

How does a Casino Deposit Bonus play through the funds on my account?

Casino Deposit Bonuses will always play through the funds in the following order:

  1. Original deposit 
  2. Winnings won from wagers with the original deposit
  3. Casino Deposit Bonus Funds
  4. Any winnings tied to Casino Deposit Bonus Funds are locked until the total play through requirement is met.

As an example only: If the Casino Deposit Bonus is a 50% deposit match up to $1,500 with a 10x play through multiplier and you deposit $3,000.

The funds would be played through in the following order:

  1. Original deposit: $3,000
  2. Any winnings tied to the original deposit
  3. Casino Deposit Bonus matched: $1,500 in Casino Deposit Bonus Funds
  4. Any winnings tied to the Casino Deposit Bonus Funds are locked (meaning can’t be withdrawn) until the total play through requirement is met for $15,000 (if playing 100% contribution rate games). 

An infographic detailing the order of play through the funds for a Casino Deposit Bonus, presented in four steps. Step 1 shows a graphic of a fan of money bills, with the caption 'Original Deposit: $3,000.' Step 2 depicts a money bag with a star, accompanied by the text 'Winnings tied to deposit.' Step 3 illustrates a money bag with an incoming arrow, labeled 'Rollover Casino Deposit Bonus Matched: $1,500 Casino Bonus Funds.' Finally, Step 4 presents a money bag with an outgoing arrow and a lock, with the text 'Any winnings tied to the Casino Bonus Funds are locked.

  • Once the play through requirement is reached, any winnings are unlocked and can be withdrawn.
  • If you played through the original deposit, winnings from the original deposit, and Casino Deposit Bonus Funds to $0, the Casino Deposit Bonus offer ends.
  • You can continue to wager your locked winnings until you meet the play through requirement, at which point the winnings will unlock and can be withdrawn. However, if the promotion period ends and the play through requirement has not been met, the offer expires and any wagered portion of the original deposit, wagered winnings (funds won from original deposit and then wagered), remaining Casino Deposit Bonus Funds, and winnings tied to the Casino Deposit Bonus Funds will be forfeited.
  • For complete details, please visit the Casino Promotions page and review the Terms and Conditions of the Casino deposit bonus offer you have received.

What happens if I have wagered my funds?

During this promotion, the wagered funds are deducted from the original deposit. Any winnings obtained from bets using only funds from the original deposit will be considered winnings.

As an example only: You deposited $3,000 and received a 50% Casino Deposit Bonus match of $1,500 in Casino Deposit Bonus Funds.

Image showing a 50% casino deposit bonus match. To the left, there's an icon depicting a spread of cash, representing a monetary deposit. Next to this, the text reads 'Deposited: $3,000'. Below the cash icon, a second icon shows a money bag with a 50% symbol, encircled by an arrow, illustrating a bonus match offer. The accompanying text is 'Casino Deposit Bonus Matched: 50%' and '1,500 Casino Bonus Funds', explaining that a $3,000 deposit has been matched with a 50% bonus, amounting to an additional $1,500 in casino bonus funds.

You wagered $50 on Slots and won $100. The $50 would be deducted from your $3,000 original deposit first, taking it to $2,950. Keep in mind the $100 in winnings are considered winnings from the original deposit wager.

This image displays a sequence of a casino gaming transaction. At the top, there's an icon of hand of playing cards and poker chips representing a $50 bet on slots accompanied by the text 'Funds Wagered: $50 bet on Slots.' Below this, a money bag icon followed by the text 'Winnings tied to deposit: $100' indicates the winnings associated with the wager. At the bottom of the image, a spread of cash signifies an 'Original Deposit: $2,950.'

However, if you have played through your original deposit AND the winnings won from your original deposit, any winnings tied to the Casino Deposit Bonus Funds would be locked until the play through is met.

As an example only: If you wagered your original deposit down to $0 AND the winnings won from your original deposit down to $0, you will then begin playing through the Casino Deposit Bonus Funds.

Then, if you wager $50 in Casino Deposit Bonus Funds on a slot game that has a 100% contribution rate, this will bring your Casino Deposit Bonus Funds balance down to $1,450. In this Slots wager example, you won $100. The winning of $100 would then be locked winnings until the play through requirement of the Casino Deposit Bonus Funds is met.

This image presents a breakdown of casino bonus fund transactions. At the top, a spread of cash indicates an 'Original Deposit: $0', followed by a money bag icon with 'Winnings tied to deposit: $0', signifying no initial deposit or winnings. In the middle, an icon suggestive of slot machine gameplay accompanies the text 'Wagered: $50 in Casino Bonus Funds on Slots.' Below that, a money bag with a green arrow denotes 'Casino Bonus Funds: $1,450', reflecting the remaining bonus funds after wagering. At the bottom, a locked money bag icon next to 'Locked Casino Bonus Funds winnings: $100' represents the winnings that are currently not withdrawable.

Can I opt into more than one Casino Deposit Bonus?

Yes, players can opt into more than one Casino Deposit Bonus. However, players would need to make separate deposits for each Casino Deposit Bonus they opted into.

Players would also need to complete the play through requirement of the first Casino Deposit Bonus they opted into before any play through would contribute to the second Casino Deposit Bonus offer.

What happens when I forfeit my Casino Deposit Bonus?

You can decide to forfeit your Casino Deposit Bonus at any time. However, forfeiture of the Casino Deposit Bonus will result in the loss of any wagered portion of the original deposit, wagered winnings (funds won from original deposit and then wagered), remaining Casino Deposit Bonus Funds, and winnings tied to the Casino Deposit Bonus Funds. For more information, please go to How do I forfeit my Casino Deposit Bonus.

As an example only: You opt into a Casino Deposit Bonus with a 50% deposit match up to $1,500 and you deposit $3,000.

If you wagered $50 on a slot game that has a 100% contribution rate and won $100, $50 would be deducted from your $3,000 deposit, taking it to $2,950. If you then decided to forfeit the Casino Deposit Bonus, you would forfeit the $1,500 of Casino Deposit Bonus Funds.

You would receive back the $2,950 of the original deposit AND the $100 in winnings won from your original deposit.
