Everything you need to know about the DraftKings Play+ prepaid card and the benefits it brings to you as a sports bettor.
The American sports betting market is a complex one, with some states allowing sports betting and casino gaming, some states permitting only sports betting, and many states still yet to legalize sports betting.
With different states at different stages of the legislative process, the US banking system is not always completely up-to-date with the changes that are continuously taking place. For example, even if you are in a legal betting state, your bank may block a transaction made with your Visa or Mastercard to your chosen sportsbook.
This is where the DraftKings prepaid card comes in. Also known as the DraftKings Play+ card, the DraftKings prepaid card is an alternative payment method which cuts out the interaction with banks and makes deposits and withdrawals much easier.
The DraftKings Sportsbook prepaid card is just one of the cards partnered with Play+. The majority of legal US sportsbooks and casinos now have partnerships with Play+ and can also offer prepaid cards to their customers as a result.
The DraftKings Sportsbook Play+ card is not a credit card so you do not need to wait for approval to use it. You also do not need any credit check and there are no credit limits. You simply load up your card and wager.
