Thursday August 6,2015 : NEW DAILY FANTASY SPORTS SITE LAUNCHES IN U.K.
Launch of European multi-sport daily fantasy site Fanaments today.
The new daily fantasy sports operator Fanaments has launched in the UK, offering players a slew of football competition-based games including the English Premier League, La Liga, and UEFA Champions League.
It will also go live with sports including NBA basketball, Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial arts and PGA golf.
The Malta-licensed platform, which is the brainchild of Icelandic co-founders Bragi Ægisson (CEO), Arnor Davidsson (CPO) and Gudmundur Sveinsson (CTO), allows users to choose a different team each game day.
Ægisson explained: “Daily fantasy has become a huge hit in the USA but its more traditional, season-long or weekend-only equivalent in Europe and elsewhere has gone stale.
“There are also few options to play for real money on this side of the Atlantic or on any sport other than football. We’re very happy to change that and add a new layer of excitement to people’s favourite sport.”
In addition to daily fantasy competitions, Fanaments provides players with a unique 1×2 Pick ‘Em game. This gives them the chance to predict the results of multiple sport fixtures in order to win a pot of money.
The product, which will soon also be available as an app, boasts the latest technology and a high level of real time data which gives users a thrilling game day experience, along with a range of player incventives that includes a 20 percent life-time ‘refer a friend' scheme, leader board winnings, deposit bonuses, and minimum tournament guarantees.
