Quick Start: How to Place a Bet (US)

  • To place a bet, find the event and outcome you would like to bet on and click to add it to your bet slip. The green numbers associated with each outcome are the odds, which determine the potential payout. You can add up to 12 picks to your bet slip at any given time.
  • To view your bet slip, tap the center button on the app or look to the right-hand side of your screen on the web. Here you can see all of the picks you have selected that are waiting to be placed. 
  • Once in the bet slip, you can toggle between Singles, Parlays, and Round Robins (visit our wagers page here to learn more about the kinds of bet types offered on DraftKings). Enter the amount you would like to wager and you will see the potential payout calculated.
  • Once you confirm your picks and wager amount,  select ‘PLACE BET’ to lock in your bet. You will see a receipt for all of the bets you place. You can view all of your receipts and track the outcomes by visiting ‘My Bets.’
