DraftKings UK Review
DraftKings have set their stall out on becoming the industry-leading daily fantasy sports entertainment provider and there is no question that they deserve recognition for having one of the best daily fantasy football games on the marketplace, thanks to a combination of awesome site design, a market-leading product offer and impressive prize structures.
DraftKings have a UK gaming licence and are the official fantasy sports partners of Liverpool, Arsenal and Watford football clubs.
DraftKings made sweeping changes to their soccer product prior to their UK launch, switching statistics provider and adjusting their scoring/roster format and this flexibility has continued and is clearly one of their strengths, proving that they take customer feedback on board.
The list of soccer leagues on offer at DraftKings continues to grow. Daily fantasy football contests are available on numerous tournaments including the English Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Major League Soccer and Liga MX, while European Championship, World Cup and Copa America contests are also covered, which complements the plethora of other sports that make up the DraftKings portfolio. These include: NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, PGA & European Tour Golf, College Basketball, College Football, Mixed Martial Arts, NASCAR and eSports.
