So, if you’ve started playing DraftKings, you’ve probably come across the DraftKings Sportsbook Rewards system, which can seem confusing and hard to understand. However, have no fear, as with this comprehensive guide, we’ll cover its ins and outs in-depth to clear up any confusion!

The DraftKings Sportsbook Rewards work as part of DraftKings Dynasty Rewards, whereby actual money purchases generate Crowns for players to use online in contest entries, the DK marketplace, etc. Crowns also act as tier credits which give players varying levels of privileges.

Now, if you’re really itching to figure out how the DraftKings Sportsbook rewards system works, and how to benefit from it – read on!

How Does the DraftKings Sportsbook Reward System Work?

The DraftKings Sportsbook system, which falls under the DraftKings Dynasty Rewards, is clear-cut once you get the hang of it! First off, to start with, let’s break down the digital currency system DraftKings uses, which is Crowns.

As part of the DraftKings Dynasty Rewards Program, players will receive Crowns based on how much real money they have spent in-game on things such as sports bets, casino bets, lottery purchases, and purchases made on the DraftKings marketplace.

The rate of the number of Crowns you receive according to how much USD you have spent varies according to the type of purchase; however, generally, the rule of thumb is that you earn one Crown for every 1 to 2 US dollars spent on DraftKings.

The entirety of the DraftKings platform, such as the Sportsbook, Casino, and Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS), are included in the DraftKings Sportsbook rewards system, especially its loyalty program. This loyalty program lets you maximize the number of rewards you get from your wins in-game.

Basically, to clarify, the loyalty program lets you convert any Crowns generated in the game to DraftKings store credit in the form of DK Dollars.

In addition, Crowns can also be used to make Casino bets, and you can even use them to purchase contest tickets instead of real money!

The DraftKings Sportsbook Loyalty Tiers System

The more Crowns you earn over time, the more Tier Credits you have. And the higher these are, the higher your Dynasty Rewards Loyalty Tier. These loyalty tiers are comprised of 5 tiers in total, with each tier having more perks than the last, free of charge.

The tiers are the following in descending order, Onyx, Diamond, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Bronze is the lowest tier you can start out with, and Onyx is the highest tier with the most exclusive perks you can’t get through monetary purchases!

To achieve the Bronze tier, you need to start with how many Crowns everyone starts with; 0! You will stay in the Bronze Tier if you earn anywhere from 0 to 24 999 credits per year in-game income.

Of course, the following tiers, Silver and Gold, require that you earn about 25000 and 125 000 tier credits, respectively.

The following tiers, Diamond and Onyx, require about 500 000 and 1 000 000 tier credits per year, respectively.

Obviously, the higher your tier, the more rewards, and privileges you get in DraftKings, especially with the Diamond tier and above. These privileges include access to exclusive live events, having a VIP associates’ team, and being able to use the much more efficient priority customer support service.

In addition to these perks, Diamond and Onyx can also exclusively grant friends free 3-month trials of the Gold and Diamond Tiers free of charge.

Some Other Commonly Asked Questions About DraftKings

As DraftKings has hundreds of thousands of registered players worldwide, there are naturally a lot of questions and queries.

So, we’ve compiled a list of helpful questions” and answers to help with some of your biggest questions as players to make your in-game experience simpler and more enjoyable!

What Are the DraftKings Dynasty Rewards Program Limitations?

Even though the DraftKings Dynasty Rewards Program generally applies to most purchases in-game down with real money, there are a few terms and conditions that apply. Firstly, you can’t earn any Crowns from sports bets that have very low odds, like -1000.

It’s also important to mention that a select few sports betting wagers made with actual money are not able to earn any Crowns and, therefore, by proxy, Tier Credits.

However, these types of bets are rare in-game, so you probably won’t come across them when playing.

In Which States Is DraftKings legal To Play?

As US legislation concerning gambling, whether online or in person, varies wildly from state to state, you can’t assume that you’ll be able to access DraftKings or any affiliated games in every part of the US.

Currently, there are about 20 US States where DraftKings Sportsbook is legal and accessible on Apple’s App Store and Google Play. These states include Colorado, New Jersey, Ohio, West Virginia, Massachusetts, Wyoming, and Iowa.

And continuing the list, you can also play DraftKings Sportsbook in Maryland, Connecticut, Michigan, Arizona, Illinois, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, Tennessee, Virginia, and New Hampshire.

In addition to restrictions in the US concerning the game, there are also only a handful of locations situated outside of US borders where playing DraftKings and DK Daily Fantasy Sports is legal. These countries include Canada, Austria, the United Kingdom, Malta, Germany, and Ireland.

However, if you live in a state or country where DraftKings isn’t legal, then you should keep a lookout for new announcements from your local government. Many countries and US states continuously go through legal revisions concerning gambling, especially DraftKings!


The DraftKings Dynasty Rewards System, which encompasses the Sportsbook Rewards Program and many other programs in DraftKings, is a fantastic way for players to make the most of their wins!

After all, the rewards program lets you slowly build up Crowns and Tier Credits without even having to do anything extra in DraftKings. Plus, if you’re patient, you’ll really be able to reap its rewards in the form of tier-exclusive privileges, DK Dollars, and cashless entry into contests!
