What is DraftKings’ Daily Fantasy Sports maximum commission structure?

Trust and transparency with you - our daily fantasy sports players - is a core value for DraftKings.

Since our founding we have developed the industry’s most robust consumer protections, such as our market-leading game integrity and our Fair Play Commitment. We've built the largest daily fantasy sports platform in the world and our high standards have been essential to the increase of public trust in daily fantasy sports. We constantly work towards better informing and educating players, and believe full and transparent disclosure of our maximum commission structure is an important component of trust, removing a concern that could get in the way of fans enjoying the game.

Our Promise
If we offer a daily fantasy sports contest that doesn't comply with the DraftKings Commission Structure page, we'll refund the difference between actual commission and maximum commission to every user in the contest.
