ABOUT SAFER PLAY AT DK

It's More Fun When It's for Fun!

At DraftKings, we believe that it’s more fun when it’s for fun -- gaming should be for entertainment only.

Responsible gaming (or safer play) is a core value to us, and a key part of that value means that we have the best trained, most informed employees as well as most informed player base.

WHY DO WE CARE SO MUCH?

We want our players to have fun, not develop problems.

We have legal, regulatory, and compliance obligations, as well as ethical obligations to support player safety.

Our players expect honesty, integrity, and transparency.

We want the most sustainable player base, this makes the best business sense.

We want to be best-in-class in everything we do, including responsible gaming!


ABOUT SAFER PLAY

What is it?

Simply put, safer play/responsible gaming means staying in bounds in terms of time and money spent gaming. Operators like us can (and should!) promote safer play by offering players tools to monitor and manage their activity, plus training employees about these resources and other key concepts.

Why is it Important?

It is required by all regulated jurisdictions that licensed operators must adhere to the regulatory measures required to prevent problem gambling.

The most ethical and cost-effective response to gambling addiction issues is a comprehensive public health strategy that includes prevention, education, treatment, enforcement, responsible gaming, research, and recovery services. Responsible gaming standards are an important aspect of this approach.

DraftKings’ Commitment to Responsible Gaming

At DraftKings, we take Responsible Gaming seriously. A responsible gaming web page has been added to our corporate website. It outlines DraftKings' commitment to responsible gaming and includes links to more robust RG/safer play resources, external affiliates, and various other resources. Please take a few minutes to review these resources here.

SAFER PLAY INVOLVES ALL OF US!

Responsible gaming for players means:

  • playing for pleasure and entertainment but are aware of their likelihood of losing, and understanding risks

  • they are able to control their betting

  • playing in balance with other activities in their lives and is not causing problems or harm for themselves or others

Responsible gaming for the broader community, including operators, regulators, government agencies and others requires:

  • shared responsibility for increasing the awareness of the risks associated with gambling

  • creating and promoting environments that prevent and minimize gaming-related harm, and

  • being responsive to community concerns around gaming
