How do I create an account? (US)

One Account per Customer Policy

DraftKings prohibits customers from opening up more than one account to ensure fair play, uphold the integrity of our contests, and for compliance with multiple state laws and regulations.

If an individual establishes multiple accounts, DraftKings will deactivate all accounts except one.  Any accounts that are set up illegitimately will be deactivated and winnings will not be honored.
