FanXT launches daily/weekly fantasy soccer game to serve the 3 million Fantasy Premier League fans
Online PR News – 09-September-2014 – London – FanXT, the official fantasy soccer provider for 5 soccer leagues, announced the launch of its daily fantasy sport website for English Premier League soccer.
FanXT’s daily or weekly fantasy soccer game runs on the basic functionalities of traditional fantasy soccer game based on the English Premier League (EPL) where users earn points from EPL players’ performances in real-life matches. However, instead of being stuck with the same fantasy team throughout the whole season, users can opt to join the variety of contests that run for the duration of a game week (happening over a weekend) so users start fresh every game week. Thus, users can win cash prizes immediately after the end of the game week – eliminating the wait for an entire season to be over to cash out.
Daily fantasy sport is experiencing massive growth in the U.S., led by two major companies - FanDuel and DraftKings, who recently acquired DraftStreet. FanDuel is projecting a revenue of $40 million this year while DraftKings, only launched two years ago, now reports having more than 1 million users.
Daily or weekly fantasy soccer is a new niche in the fantasy soccer industry making it a suitable game for the current A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder) generation that demands instant gratification. FanXT’s version of this quick fantasy game is based on salary cap, where user enters a daily or weekly contest and buys 15 English Premier League real-life players within the given overall budget. During Premier League matches, users can access their contest page to see actual live score and their points being updated.
Fantasy sport is considered a game of skill where winners win exclusively based on how well they analyze and manage their fantasy team, not on luck. This is evidently true in the U.S. where the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gaming Act exempted fantasy sports. This mean FanXT’s fantasy game is perfectly legal to play in the U.S.
With the official English Premier League website hosts over 3 million users in their Fantasy Premier League, daily/weekly fantasy soccer is destined to enter the fantasy soccer market with FanXT spearheading the way.
