Give a family member, friend (or anyone else) a DraftKings Gift Card. Here’s how you can get your hands on one today.
Ever since the internet was modernized enough to have the technology to facilitate online sports betting, the ability to fund your account has always been a leading question.
After all, if you cannot deposit and take money out of your account, well, there’s really no sense in playing at that online sportsbook. Right?
Again, this has been a problem even before the days of legal online sports betting.
When the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) was overturned in May 2018, we saw big companies like DraftKings and BetMGM come in and sit atop the throne as the best legal online sports betting sites.
With them in the fold, players finally had a resting spot for online sports betting that was at least protected by the government of the US state as opposed to hoping you’d get your payout from a sketchy offshore sportsbook with a license from Curacao, Panama, Malta, or somewhere else. There are even now DraftKings Play+ prepaid cards available!
But we’re here to talk about the DraftKings Gift Card and how you can get your hands on one. Here’s all of the information that you need.
DraftKings Gift Card: What Are My Options?
The gift card comes in two forms:
- $25 Gift Card
- $50 Gift Card
This gives you a degree of flexibility when buying one for a family, friend, or other who is deserving of it.

How to Use the DraftKings Gift Card Online
So, now you’ve probably got your card for someone. The card can be used to deposit into your online sportsbook, casino, or Daily Fantasy Sports account. The DraftKings virtual wallet is linked between all three of these accounts, which makes things nice and easy.
Here’s exactly what you need to do:
- Log into your DraftKings account online, or sign up by clicking here

Unfortunately, gift cards cannot be used to withdraw money at ATMs. You can also head over to the DraftKings site to check the balance of your gift card at any time.
