Daily Fantasy Sports – what is it?

daily fantasy sportsDaily fantasy sports it is a game in which we create our own virtual team, that compete with the teams created by other players. Our team is built by choosing real players playing real matches. After each play, particular player gets determined number of fantasy points for his real achievements on the real football pitch (goals, assists, passes, cards, successful defenses, etc.). The sum of fantasy points gained by all the players is then the result of our team.

Especially for new players, platforms prepare free tournaments (so called freerolls) in which we can win real money without risking our own capital. If we gain more experience in playing Daily Fantasy Sports, we can try out the tournament with enrolment fee (the tournaments start from 1$) where we can win incomparably more money. And when we want to feel even more adrenaline, we can participate in tournaments with enrolment fee of 100$ or 1000$ where the pools for the winning are astronomical. Till now, games of DFS type are not so popular in Europe as they are in the USA where there are several millions of players and in some tournaments the organizers guarantee up to 1 million dollars for the 1st place.

What is the difference between Daily Fantasy Sports and Fantasy Sports?

The rules of Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) are the same as in the Fantasy Sports with the difference that we do not have to play the whole season. DFS platforms offer many kinds of games. We can choose if we want to play only 1 day, 1 week or even 1 match. DFS games are organised in the way that organizer sets the maximum number of players who can participate particular tournament. Another advantage of daily fantasy sports are the prizes. On average to win in Fantasy Sports we need to wait till the end of the season, and on the contrary, in Daily Fantasy Sports our prize is available even the same day.

dfsWe have different kinds of tournaments in Daily Fantasy Sports, starting from freerolls (free tournaments that everyone can participate) and up to tournaments with enrolment fees (starting from 1 dollar) in which we can win several thousands of dollars. Everyone can find something interesting. For one the prize of 10 dollars in freerolls would be sufficient and for other much greater prize in tournament with enrolment fees is a must.
