How to sign up for DraftKings in Ontario

First, register for your account on the DraftKings app or web browser. You’ll need to provide DraftKings with some information about yourself in that process. That information includes your:

  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Legal name
  • Mailing address
  • Part of your Social Insurance Number

You do not have to be an Ontario resident to sign up for DraftKings in Canada, but you must be 19 or older. Additionally, when you go to place a bet on a sporting event or play a game in the casino, you must be in Ontario at that point. (DraftKings uses geographic verification through a downloadable browser plugin on computers and phone location settings.)

After DraftKings verifies your information, you’re almost ready to start playing. All that remains is to make your first deposit. The DraftKings app is available in the App Store for iOS devices or the Google Play Store for Android devices.

DraftKings Ontario welcomes new players

DraftKings is looking to bring in first-time customers with great rewards, and no code is necessary. This is an excellent opportunity to try out the app and play online casino games.

Once you finalize your registration at DraftKings, keep your eyes on your inbox for more rewards.

Ready for DraftKings Casino?

DraftKings offers casino games as well. Sign up for the sportsbook, and you’ll be all set to play on their growing and already fantastic DraftKings online casino in Ontario.

Their site is available both on computers and as a mobile app. For those ready to try DraftKings out, doing so is easy. You’ll need to have some information on hand.

How about DraftKings Sportsbook?

DraftKings is now in 17 US states, including New York, Illinois, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

DraftKings offers betting opportunities (spread, over/under, moneyline) on various sports, including everything from Australian rules football to cricket to snooker. They also have a large selection of betting odds on North American standbys such as hockey, football and college and professional basketball.

Suspense with a late launch

Maybe it wasn’t on purpose, but we’ll give the operator the benefit of the doubt after DraftKings Canada had a delay in its launch. The legal Ontario online sports betting opened on April 4 and continues to expand. Ontario DFS users may already be familiar with the DK brand. However, those daily fantasy sports offerings had to end due to regulations in the province.
