[Updated] DraftKings down, not loading or working (‘Network Error’)? You’re not alone


New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on April 18, 2023) follows:

DraftKings is a company that offers fantasy competition services to sports fans. Through its website users can organize and participate in fantasy leagues for multiple sports.

However, it appears that currently DraftKings users are unable to access their accounts as the website is down or not working.


DraftKings down, not loading or working

The DraftKings servers have been in the middle of an outage. The situation is causing frustration among users who are unable to make changes to their teams, leagues or accounts.


When people try to access the platform, they are only getting a ‘Network Error’ message along with a ‘5 – 0 – 2 – 503’ error code.


This serves as a reminder to never keep more than $100 on one gambling platform and never do long term futures bets. I’ve got pending bets from October. You never know when a gambling platform will be hacked or go bankrupt. I’m on @DraftKings at 4am all the time. Not normal

@DKSportsbook @DK_Assist ima need some answers about WhatsUp with y’all servers rn

It’s noteworthy that DraftKings fantasy leagues allow you to bet with real money. Therefore, player funds are at potential risk.

There is some fear of a possible hack among users getting an ‘Under maintenance’ screen since DraftKings usually warns them in advance about any server maintenance.


There is still no official statement from the DraftKings team. Therefore, it is not known when the platform will return to normal operation.

We will be monitoring the situation to update this story as events unfold.
