The negative points that were raised about DraftKings were, for example, “this app is good if you plan on never ever reaching customer service or having any issues with the app. However if you ever need to reach customer service there is a huge issue”, and “I’ve had issues on the site that included not receiving proper payment for my winnings and missing promotional payouts”.
However, DraftKings has received some praise, such as “The depth and breadth of options feel very customizable. The instant specials, gift credits, and generous prop odds have me loving my experience so far”.
