What are Crowns and how do I earn them?

Crowns are a form of currency used by DraftKings players. 

Crowns have no cash value, they are used on DraftKings to directly enter into contests. 

They can also be redeemed for DK Dollars or Casino free play credits. Note that the option to redeem crowns for Casino credits is only available for states where Casino games are offered by DraftKings.

Crowns balances are universal across Daily Fantasy, Sportsbook and Casino. This means that if you earn your Crowns playing Daily Fantasy, they will be available to you for Sportsbook and Casino games as well.  

The more you play, the more crowns you earn. 

The current earn rates for Crowns are:

  Crowns Earned Played Dollars Games Played
Daily Fantasy 1 Crown $1 All DFS games
Sportsbook 1 Crown $2 All Sportsbook bets
Casino 1 Crown $2 Slots
Casino 1 Crown $5 Blackjack, Table Games, Video Poker
Casino 1 Crown $1 Progressive Slots, Lottery, Keno

Please note these rates are subject to change. 

For Sportsbook accrual:

  • Odds must be -1000 or larger to accrue crowns
  • Cashed out or Voided bets do not accrue crowns
