With the launch of Ontario legal sports betting, the last great whale was DraftKings, whose launch in Ontario took a bit of time compared to the others. But now, fortunately for those looking to place their bets, the American giant of the industry has come to Ontario, meaning Ontarians can finally bet on their favourite sports with DraftKings Sportsbook Ontario.
Click PLAY NOW below to get started with DraftKings Sportsbook and explore all the benefits available to new users of legal mobile sports betting apps, ahead of Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Celtics and Warriors Wednesday night and Game 5 of the NHL Eastern Conference Finals Thursday between the Rangers and Lightning.
Getting Started With DraftKings Ontario
For those looking to get started, the process couldn’t be simpler – just download the DraftKings Sportsbook App in the app store of your choosing (App Store for iOS users, Google Play for Android), and then get started. The app is free, and easy to use, once downloaded.
Existing users of DraftKings’ Daily Fantasy operations will just need to sign into their accounts before being able to bet, but for those who haven’t used DraftKings before, the process is simple and easy. All you have to do is give some basic information about who you are – name, birthday, and address – and you can get started. Verification has been made easy and simple.
Users will have to ensure that their location services are turned on, so that DraftKings can ensure they’re in Ontario, but once the location detection occurs, it’s a smooth ride. Unfortunately, VPNs don’t cut it – users do physically have to be in Ontario. At that point, you can either place your bets, or make your first deposit. We strongly recommend using a private and secure network when filling in sensitive information like bank accounts or personal information, like home wifi or a personal data plan.
If you have existing bankroll from the DFS site, it will get rolled over, but for those needing to make a first deposit, DraftKings makes it easy. DraftKings acceps a wide number of payment systems, including (but not limited to):
- Debit Card
- Credit Card
- Bank Account
