DraftFuel launches new gaming app and prepaid debit card

December 7, 2021

The aim of the card is to encourage responsible gaming.

DraftFuel announced yesterday it is launching a new gaming app and a prepaid debit card program. Both are an effort to promote a proactive approach to responsible gaming and provide some financial guardrails as new players enter the market. 

“We wanted to create DraftFuel to help individuals of any experience level enjoy guilt-free gaming,” said DraftFuel Co-Founder Alex Cullingford. “That’s why, beyond the app itself, we will be producing content that our user-base can take advantage of to make smart, responsible decisions.” 

The app will be available for use at all major online sportsbooks, casinos, and sports fantasy sites. In addition, the accompanying prepaid card can be used for everyday purchases as well. 

DraftFuel has also partnered with Discover Global Network, allowing their customers to make purchases anywhere Discover is accepted. 

“Partnering with a company like DraftFuel is an example of how we’re introducing exciting new payment methods into a growing industry,” said Dane James, Director Business Development at Discover Global Network. 

The app and the debit card are designed to work together and allow users to accumulate money in their DraftFuel accounts through two methods. Players will be able to link pre-existing debit or credit cards they have to their account. This will allow the app to monitor transactions from everyday purchases like coffee and gasoline, which will accumulate “spare change.” Users also can have the option of gaining a percentage of their bank deposits automatically transferred to their DraftFuel account. 

DraftFuel hopes the two new options will help mitigate risk and empower users to only play with “true discretionary funds.”
