How to Download the Draftkings App?
The best thing about Draftkings is that they have both a Draftkings casino app as well as a Draftkings sports app. And both of them are available for both iOS and Android users.
But they are only for users based in the United States. Only their fantasy sports app is available for Canadians. Once they do make their sports and casino apps available in Canada, you can follow the simple steps below to download them:
- Go to the Google Play Store on your Android device. If you use iOS, go to the App Store.
- Search and find the Draftkings casino app and/or the Draftkings sports app.
- Click ‘Install’ if you are on Android. If using iOS, click ‘Get’
Once you do that, the Draftkings mobile app will become available for your use on your mobile device.
For the best Draftkings mobile experience, you should try to have at least a mid-range device. A mid-range device should have at least 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage minimum.
And you should also ensure that your device is updated to the latest available version of the operating system. The latest version of iOS is 15.3, while the latest version of Android is 12.
As for compatibility, since Draftkings mobile apps in other regions support both the two major operating systems, it is unlikely to be a major issue for Canadian players.
Bonus Available and How to Get it
As a new operator in Canada, you can surely expect a great many bonuses from Draftkings. Most prominent among them may very well be welcome bonuses. They are bonuses targeted specifically towards those who newly sign-up to a sportsbook or online casino.
