Who can bet on the DraftKings online sportsbook?
While the DraftKings daily fantasy sports site is available to users in over 40 states, the DraftKings online sportsbook is much less prevalent due to laws and regulations that need to be created for each state.
DraftKings has gone live in West Virginia, Indiana and Pennsylvania just to name a few states. DraftKings has partnered with brick and mortar US casinos to bring online sports betting to additional states when markets open up.
In general, you must be 21 years of age or older and physically located in the state at the time of betting. DraftKings utilizes geolocation software to ensure you are located in the state while betting. Visitors from another site can create an account and make bets while in a regulated state. Users will need to verify their identity before depositing or placing bets in the sportsbook.
