    OUR CORE VERTICALS

    Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS)

    • DraftKings Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) mirrors season-long fantasy sports but condenses it into a shorter, immediate engagement format.
    • Customers draft a player roster and those athletes earn points based on their in-game performance.
    • Contests range from a day to a week depending on the sport.
    • DraftKings’ Daily Fantasy Sports product is available in 6 countries with 15 distinct sports categories.

    Sportsbook (Mobile and Retail)

    • DraftKings Sportsbook is a leading online, mobile and retail sportsbook in the emerging sports betting industry in the United States.
    • DraftKings Sportsbook online offers customers a way to place bets on a variety of sports, players, leagues, and events – including in-game and micro-betting opportunities, like play-by-play, pitch-by-pitch, or throw-by-throw, from the comfort of their home through their mobile devices.
    • DraftKings meticulously designed retail sportsbook spaces provide customers with a premier skin-in-the-game viewership experience.

    iGaming/Casino

    • DraftKings iGaming brings consumers innovative and often exclusive real money games like Blackjack, DraftKings Rocket, Roulette, Spanish 21, and Slots.
    • As a true technology company, DraftKings is unique among B2C (Business to Consumer) operators in our ability to create games in-house, such as DK Craps, Rocket, and Spanish 21, allowing us to offer a differentiated product and bring ongoing innovation and entertainment to our consumers.

    NFT Marketplace

    • DraftKings Marketplace is a digital collectibles ecosystem designed for mainstream accessibility that offers curated NFT (Non-Fungible Token) drops and supports secondary-market transactions.
    • The easy-to-use experience that we’ve built combined with compelling content, including sports, entertainment, and popular culture, has driven positive user engagement and brought new consumers to DraftKings.
    • This new, emerging vertical demonstrates DraftKings' leadership and the ability to expand into other non-gaming entertainment formats and still align with our consumers' interests.
    • We see our new DraftKings Marketplace as a way to simplify the purchase and sale of NFTs with new and existing users who are passionate collectors, investors, and art aficionados.
