DraftKings is widely regarded as the biggest Daily Fantasy Sports site in the world. The American based site regularly hands out prizes upwards of $1 million every week, as well as VIP experiences that money cannot buy across a multitude of sports.
DraftKings continue to branch out into new regions, with Australian customers provided access to DraftKings contests in mid-2018, with both AFL and NRL games expected to be offered for the 2019 season. It is hoped that DraftKings will offer cricket contests in future for leagues such as the Indian Premier League which would hold great appeal for Indian DFS players.
