Here's what we do to make that happen:

  • Educate our team members to recognize problem gambling and give them the resources to help.
  • Provide information and assistance to our players.
  • Participate in programs and initiatives to increase problem gambling awareness.

Know Your Limits

At DraftKings, we want our patrons to enjoy playing their favorite games and gamble responsibly. However, for some, gambling can become a problem. Please read the information below. It is essential if you are recovering from any kind of dependency.

  • Always establish limits for depositing and wagering before you start playing.
  • Decide beforehand on a time limit for your playing session and stick to it. Within that session ensure that you take regular breaks from playing.
  • Never gamble if it interferes with your daily responsibilities.
  • Never gamble if you are in recovery from any dependency or are under the influence of alcohol or any other substance.
  • Never gamble if your primary aim is to recover losses. Remember, bet with your head, not over it.

Play Responsibly - Set Gaming Limits

The following types of limits exist for you to establish exactly how you want to play:

  • Deposit Limits -  Set daily, weekly or monthly limits on the amount you deposit into your account.
  • Wagering Limits -  Set limits on how much money you wish to wager while playing.
  • Time Limits -  Set session limits so you can control the amount of time you want to play.

Please note, all limit decreases will take effect immediately, however, if you wish to increase a limit you first must wait till the previous limit expires.


DraftKings offers all users the ability to self-exclude on all DraftKings products. You may exclude yourself using the DraftKings exclusion program, which can be accessed here
