How To Sign Up For DraftKings Canada

Use the banner above to navigate to DraftKings Canada sportsbook. That will enable you to sign up for a new account, and be sure to look around for the best welcome offer available in your area.

Once you’ve zeroed in on the best welcome offer, get some critical paperwork handy and begin creating your account. Gaming regulations require some proof of identity to pass the mandatory security check. Essentially, you’ll need government-issued ID and proof residence.

Once your free account has been created, you’ll want to fund the account so you can begin wagering. The following options will generally work for funding accounts in Canada:

  • Debit card
  • Credit card
  • Bank account
  • PayPal

But, don’t just jump into deep water without first arming yourself with the best tools to try to win. Novice bettors should educated themselves on various betting options and strategies.

Betting options

Not only does the DraftKings Canada app offer plenty of different sports on which to bet, but each sport has many different types of wagering options available as well. Commonly used betting options include:

Learning the ins and outs of different bet types will help you avoid making costly mistakes.

Also, make sure in addition to do your homework on any welcome offers. Terms and conditions often apply and can affect how to best use these offers.

Wager On Canadian Teams With DraftKings App

Obviously, hockey comes to mind first when considering popular sports for Canadian bettors. While the Toronto Maple Leafs lost a hotly contested first-round series in the NHL playoffs, a couple of Canadian sides still remain in contention. You can find game lines, series prices and futures on the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames as they compete with each other for a spot in the Western Conference finals.

MLB’s Toronto Blue Jays, meanwhile, have not gotten off to the best start after being highly touted in the preseason. That just means you can get betters prices on them in futures markets, as well as some of their players for MVP and Cy Young awards, however.
