DRAFT DFS review and promo code 2023
UPDATE: Draft.com has merged with FanDuel. Existing Draft users may receive a 10% transfer bonus of up to $500 by creating a FanDuel account and merging their accounts.

DRAFT is one of the newer and more popular daily fantasy sites on the market. The site, which is primarily used on their mobile app, was recently acquired by gaming behemoth Paddy Power Betfair. It is very different and unique because there are no salary caps involved like the other daily fantasy sites. It’s quick and easy to conduct a draft, often taking less than three minutes.
Where to play DRAFT
Browser: You can use DRAFT through any of the major browsers (Chrome, Safari and Firefox)
Mobile: A DRAFT App is available for iPhone, iPad and any other IOS based platforms. A DRAFT app is also available for Android devices.
U.S States where DRAFT is not permitted:
All games at DRAFT have no salary cap which makes this fantasy sports app very unique.
Best Ball: Best Ball is all about the draft and nothing but the draft. Once you assemble your team, that’s it! The app automatically takes the score from your highest scoring players each week. No setting lineups each week. No waiver wire bids.
Multi-Person Snake Drafts: one of the more popular games for fantasy players. Snake drafts are pretty simple and you’re likely familiar with the format if you’ve ever played in a fantasy football home league. If you had the 10th pick in a 10 team league, on the ‘turn’ you would have the 11th pick and so on. The draft goes quickly because you’re on the clock for only 20-30 seconds.
Dream Team Contests: You pick five players in an attempt to pick the best team possible. There is no salary cap so you can draft any player you wish. These are run like Guaranteed Prize Pool (set prize amount) contests. You will get paid out in full even if the contest doesn’t fill up.
Head to Head: Two players go up against each other and it’s winner the all. You can also participate in multiple H2H drafts and not have to actually be in the that draft to pick players. You pre-set rankings and auto enter the drafts. You get matched against all different kinds of opponents and makes for some great competition!
Leagues: Join with friends or other daily fantasy players and compete against each other every night or for a duration of a season.
The amount of people in contests can range from two, three, six, ten and now, even hundreds with the addition of multi-week tournaments.

Deposit and withdrawal methods
It’s easy to deposit and withdraw on DRAFT, which accepts both credit card and PayPal for transactions. All withdrawals are processed within 24 hours.
Overall, the prize pools aren’t as big on DRAFT as they might be at one of the titan mainstream DFS sites. Given that DRAFT is a completely different user experience and format, it could easily compliment your play on one of the more traditional daily fantasy sites.
There are also H2H brackets available nearly every day with big guaranteed prize money for those who can beat several opponents, thus emulating the similar formula of seasonal fantasy sports in streamlined fashion.
DRAFT is a very cool and unique way to play fantasy sports. You get the best of both worlds whether it be daily or full season fantasy with their best ball leagues. DRAFT allows you to operate without the restriction of salary caps and gives you the ability to create the best team possible. For those looking to make money, but not necessarily to add to the stress of 6-7pm lineup adjustments, it’s a great way to simply draft in the afternoon and forget all about your roster until it’s time to track the scores later that night.
DRAFT is a must if you want daily and season long fantasy while also allowing you to compete for bragging rights within your squad.
