DraftKings App Interface
The DraftKings app home screen is the first screenshot to the left below and is the starting place to quickly access any of the features that the full web site offers. Simply drag down, right, or left to find whatever feature you may need. The home screen is the bottom right icon highlighted in orange.
When accessing the lobby, as is shown in the middle screen below, only the sports in season will be available and listed here. Tap on your sport to select it, and then select your contest starting time.
Keep up to date with live scoring on all your contests.
All the contests for this sport and start time will then be listed for you to select from.
Above the list of available contests, from left to right, you will see the filter option icon, contest types, and various sorting options, all to help narrow down what exactly your are looking for.
The filter icon, shown to the left below, gives you the option to filter your contest size and your entry fee range criteria.
If you hold your finger down on a particular contest (instead of tapping it), the contest info screen will appear which can show you who your competitors are, scoring rules, and contest details, as shown on the right below.
Once you have selected your contest, if have not done so already, you can create your lineup and pick your players. You can also create any lineups before selecting a contest from the home screen.
The DraftKings app is fast and simple to use and it is the recommended option when compared to the mobile site.
DraftKings Mobile Site
The DraftKings.com mobile site works similar to the app. You can download the app from the mobile site home screen. This is recommended since the app just works faster.
The DraftKings site home screen looks similar to the app version. The menu icon is to the left with the three horizontal bars. Touching this icon will bring up the full menu of features that are not listed on the site home screen.
Once you select your sport and contest type (guaranteed, 50/50s, etc.), you can tap the filter icon to the right which will give you the option to narrow down the list of contests you are interested in. Once you select your contest, create your lineup for it if you have not already done so, enter and get paid!
The DraftKings mobile site works just fine but their free app is the way to go. Good luck players!
