NEW DFS OPERATOR LAUNCHES IN THE U.K.
Sportito holds a UK Gambling Commission licence.
UK daily fantasy sports fans have a new operator to check out this week following the launch of Sportito under UK Gambling Commission licensing.
A statement from the operator notes that whereas many DFS services push for customers to commit for a whole season, Sportito’s platform allows players to withdraw their winnings at any time during the campaign, and that salary caps are also scrapped by Sportito, giving players an uncomplicated and affordable way to play DFS without committing too much of time and money.
The site is offering free-to-enter competitions for new users, allowing them to hone their game strategies before kicking off in one of the thousands of paid-for leagues available through desktop and mobile devices.
Sportito covers more than 40 football leagues, including all major tournaments, as well as second-tier domestic club competitions, says spokesman Riccardo Mittiga, adding that his company will protect new customers from experienced players, pay close attention to customer service, and offer social networking features.
Mittiga says that the company plans to add competitions for sports such as rugby, volleyball, motorsport, basketball, baseball and American football in the future, and is seeking licences in other markets around Europe.
