How To Make A DraftKings Credit Card Deposit FAQ
Can I deposit to my DraftKings sports betting account with a credit or debit card?
Please keep in mind that credit card policies and regulations may vary depending on your location and the specific rules of DraftKings. Additionally, some credit card issuers may treat deposits to an online sportsbook account or gaming platforms as cash advances, which can incur additional fees or higher interest rates. It’s always a good idea to check with your credit card provider to understand any potential implications before making a deposit.
Also note that credit and debit card deposits can come with a relatively high rejection rate from the issuing bank, compared to other DraftKings payment methods.
Why is my DraftKings credit card deposit not working?
Credit card restrictions: DraftKings might have restrictions on certain types of credit cards or credit card issuers. Some credit card companies do not allow transactions related to gambling or gaming platforms, which could be the reason for the deposit failure.
Insufficient funds: If you do not have enough available credit on your credit card to cover the deposit amount, the transaction will be declined.
Incorrect card details: Double-check that you have entered the correct credit card information, including the card number, expiration date, and security code (CVV).
Card expired: If your credit card has expired, the transaction will not go through. Make sure your card is still valid.
International transactions: If you are trying to deposit from a country or region where DraftKings is not available, or if your credit card company has restrictions on international transactions, the deposit may be declined.
Security concerns: Sometimes, credit card companies or banks may flag certain transactions as potentially fraudulent. If this happens, they might block the transaction until you verify it’s legitimate.
Daily limits: Some credit cards have daily transaction limits. If you have already reached your daily limit, you won’t be able to make any more transactions until the limit resets.
DraftKings server issues: It’s also possible that the issue might be on DraftKings’ end. Their servers might be experiencing temporary technical problems that prevent successful credit card transactions.
To resolve the issue, you can try the following steps:
Double-check your credit card details and ensure they are accurate.
Verify that your credit card has not expired and has enough available credit to cover the deposit.
Contact your credit card issuer to check if they have any restrictions on transactions with DraftKings.
If you’re making an international transaction, notify your credit card company in advance to prevent potential blocks.
Consider using an alternative payment method, such as a different credit card, debit card, online banking (bank transfer from your personal bank account transaction), PayPal account or e-wallet service.
