DraftKings Casino is now live in Pennsylvania and offers new users up to $50 in risk-free play.
DraftKings is a longtime daily fantasy sports leader that quickly moved to launch online sportsbooks across the country after the Supreme Court lifted a longstanding ban on sports betting. The platform recently launched a full-fledged online casino available on the same platform as its sportsbook.
Any adult over 21 who is located in Pennsylvania can sign up and play a variety of slots, video poker, and table games. The platform also recently added live dealer games to help bring the full casino experience right to your computer or mobile device.
DraftKings Online Casino
DraftKings Online Casino offers new users up to $50 n risk-free play in your first 24 hours. Simply sign up and deposit funds to your account. Once you’re all set, you can start playing any of the games offered on the platform. If you lose over the course of the first 24 hours the site will refund your losses up to $50. The bonus funds come with a 1X wagering requirement, so if you lose $25, DraftKings will credit you with $25 DK Dollars and you must then bet $25 to be able to withdraw the funds.
The best thing about the DraftKings Casino is that it is built right into the well-established sportsbook platform. This means that you can use the same account and a shared wallet to access both. It also means the casino runs on DraftKings Sportsbook’s reliable, user-friendly, easy-to-navigate platform that is particularly helpful for beginners.
The registration process is simple and requires just a few personal details, though you will also have to confirm that you are of age and located in Pennsylvania. Once you are signed up you can place your first deposit via PayPal, MasterCard or Visa, e-check, or by depositing cash at the cashier cage at Meadows Casino in Washington, Pennsylvania. You can pick up withdrawals there as well, or opt PayPal, bank transfer, or mailed check.
The selection at the online casino is a bit scant but it does offer all of the basics you will find at other online casinos. Users can access five different blackjack games, two video poker titles, and two roulette variants. You can also find 98 slot titles. DraftKings recently added live dealer baccarat, blackjack, roulette, three-card poker, and Ultimate Texas hold’em so you can bring the full casino experience into your living room.
DraftKings Casino Review
DraftKings is an established and reliable platform that offers great security for your personal information and your money. The casino exists on the same platform as the DraftKings Sportsbook, and the sportsbook platform is very good. The minimalist design allows for easy navigation and there are plenty of tips, FAQs, and support options for both beginners and seasoned vets. You can even use the same account and funds across both the sportsbook and casino, which makes things a lot simpler.
We would certainly love to see additional cashier options as well as an improved game selection, but the casino is still quite new and additional features are still being rolled out. Given DraftKings’ dominance in other fields, it is only a matter of time until their online casino gives all of the others a run for their money.
The site recently added live dealer games, giving it another leg up over some competitors. There are only five options available at the moment but we expect more games to roll out soon. The live dealer games at DraftKings are broadcast from a live studio with dealers wearing sports jerseys and, eventually, with live TV sports.
