DraftKings knows the best sports bettors set strategies for how they play – and stick to them. With that in mind we have included tools and tips that will help you develop strategies for how much, how often and when to bet.

  • View the How to Bet and Betting Rules pages for detail on how all the games work and insight on the odds of winning over time.

We also know that the best players sometimes take a break from gaming to think about where they want to be with their play. DraftKings offers several different tools for taking a break, so players can decide for themselves what works best for them.

  • Cool Off: Is like a short holiday from gaming, a time to recharge and reassess.
  • Self-Exclusion: Is a complete break from gaming on our site, a time to think about change without the pressure of checking lines or your wallet.

We recognize that some players will have issues with their play. Resources for help are available for players and concerned others. This includes access to free, professional and confidential gambling counselors 24/7.

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 familiarize yourself with 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

Setting limits is a great strategy for managing your gaming budget. Think about your entertainment budget and decide how much of it you want to spend on gaming, then select a limit that feels right for you. DraftKings offers you the ability to set a variety of limits directly from your account:

Deposit Limits - You decide how much money you want available in your wallet and when to spend it! Choose a limit on the amount of money you can deposit on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Wager Limits
- Play like a pro and monitor your spend! Setting a wager limit is a great strategy for managing your gaming budget.

Max Wager Limits - You may set limits on the maximum amount of any single wager you can place on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Time Limits - You may 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.

Play Responsibly - Cool Off Periods

A cool off period is like a holiday from gambling, it can help refocus and recharge. Some people like to step back and look with fresh eyes at how much they want to play. Whatever you decide, you're in charge and we're here to help!

Here are a few things you should know about a cool off.

  • During a cool off you will not be able to log-into your account and if you have funds in your account that you would like to withdraw, you will have to contact customer support.
  • Once you confirm your cool off period you can't shorten it, but you can lengthen it.
  • Once your time period concludes you will automatically be able to login to your account again if you choose to.


The best players sometimes take a break. This tool helps you know that you are in control and making the decisions that work for you! It is a complete break. It's a time to catch your breath, without the pressure of checking your wallet or reading the lines.

People often use this time out to think about where they want to be with their play. Some decide to change their limits or strategies; others decide to stop playing altogether for a while longer. Some people decide to not think about gambling at all, and head straight to the beach! How you spend your time out is entirely up to you.

Here are a few things you should know about self-exclusion:

  • During a self- exclusion you will not be able to log-into your account.
  • Self-exclusion periods cannot be shortened once selected. Self-exclusion periods may be extended.

Underage Gambling

With gaming opportunities so readily available on mobile devices, responsible online gaming relies heavily on parental control and supervision. Underage gaming is not only illegal but can also result in early gaming dependency and substantial debts incurred by unsupervised children. Recognizing this, DraftKings requires age verification and has integrated a number of security features into our digital platforms. Additionally, we offer the following tips for parents:

  • Have open discussions with your underage children about the risks associated with gaming
  • Make use of filtering software to prevent your children from accessing inappropriate material, including gaming sites.
  • Do not allow your underage children to participate in any gaming for money activity, even something as seemingly harmless as Scratch tickets or Loot Boxes
  • Keep your DraftKings Username and Password safe.
  • Do not leave your computer unattended when logged in to your DraftKings account.
  • Keep your credit/debit cards and other financial account details out of reach of children.
  • Do not save passwords on your computer. Write them down and keep them in a safe place, away from minors.
  • Do not use the “Remember Me” feature if you access DraftKings from a shared computer, especially if you share your computer with children.

Federal Prohibitions/Restrictions

  • There are several Federal prohibitions and restrictions regarding Internet gaming which include, but are not limited to, 18 U.S.C. §§ 1084 et seq. (the “Wire Act”) and 31 U.S.C. §§ 3163 through 3167 (the “Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act”).
