Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

FastPick, the number-one game for head-to-head and over/under fantasy match-ups between the world’s biggest sports stars, is coming home to ResortsCasino.com, the first casino in Atlantic City.

Just click the FastPick tab on the ResortsCasino.com site to get some skin in the game, as your fortunes rise and fall alongside the performance of your favorite players.

Ever wanted to ride LeBron James’ hot hand? Feeling Aaron Rodgers will rack up more passing yards than Tom Brady any given Sunday? Or think Mike Trout will outhit Bryce Harper?

With FastPick, you can now select your preferred head-to-head match-ups and player over/unders on some of the most high-profile games. It’s straightforward fantasy against the house, as FastPick takes the payout pools and DFS sharks out of the equation, allowing players to define their own payouts.

Simply combine 3-10 player picks in parlay-style entries – and if all your chosen players earn more Fantasy Points than their respective rivals, you’ll scoop jaw-dropping payouts of between x5 and x500 your original stake. It’s that easy – no sharks, no rosters, no complex scoring systems.

It’s just the latest development from the ResortsCasino.com lobby, which now houses a leading sportsbook, alongside over 500 online casino games, including slots, table games and Live Dealer tables.

With ResortsCasino.com, you get rewarded for your play with cashback promos, deposit matches, and the best loyalty program around – all backed by nine different deposit and withdrawal methods. Sign up now and get a 100% bonus up to $1,000 on your first deposit, plus your first sports bet matched, up to $250.

Commented Ed Andrewes, Owner of EAGC, lead consultant to Resort Digital Gaming: We originally designed FastPick to accommodate every sports fan who wanted to get a slice of the action but didn’t have the time to compete effectively against those predatory DFS sharks.

“Now, in an evolving sports betting landscape, this fast-growing, easy-access take on head-to-head betting fuses the best of sportsbook props and DFS with some towering jackpots. Our players just love taking on the house in a series of one-on-one performance markets, featuring the superstars of US sports. We’re thrilled to be bringing the next generation of fantasy sports betting home to Resorts.”

Josh Donaldson, Evan Longoria, Kyle Busch among big name backers moving Fantasy Life App into Series A Funding Round

 Fantasy Life, the growing mobile sports community created to level the playing field for the fantasy sports player and sports bettor, announced today its move into Series A funding with 16 backers. Investors include MLB All-Stars Josh Donaldson, Evan Longoria, David Price and Adam Wainwright, NASCAR’s Kyle Busch, NBA team owner Jesse Itzler, and DFS expert and Millionaire Maker winner Al Zeidenfeld. Early stage investment firms include SK Ventures and Upstage Ventures.

These professional athlete backers are among good company with not only fellow sports investors, but with Fantasy Life co-founder and fantasy sports influencer, ESPN’s Matthew Berry.

“We’re excited to see the momentum from our seed round carrying through to Series A,” said Yasin Abbak, CEO of Fantasy Life. “The fact that we continue to attract investors with large audiences across the worlds of sports and business bodes well for the growth of the Fantasy Life community and product. It’s also a huge compliment that our investors use the app and see the value of the product themselves.”

Fantasy Life provides users with industry leading alerts that beat competitors by up to 15 minutes. Users can also post, poll other players, and chat about sports—and its 4.8/5 star-rating on the app store is a testament to its advantage to those depending on real-time information for sports betting and fantasy leagues.

More on the Fantasy Life alerts and community:

  • “We wanted to create a powerful breaking news engine, combined with an engaged community, to help fantasy sports players and sports bettors alike make faster and more informed decisions,” said Matthew Berry.
  • “It’s an app that wins leagues. I know because I actually use it,” said Evan Longoria. “It’s critical for navigating injuries, suspensions, player usage, trades and everything else that impacts your team. It’s a big advantage if you have it.”
  • “Literally anyone on this app can feel like a football insider because of the super-fast notifications and the great fantasy community always with top-notch advice,” said Josh Donaldson.
  • “I really enjoy the app. I use it mostly for the alerts and for the polls. It’s great because everyone that is into DFS, sports betting or season-long fantasy can get such great feedback and share in the experience together. Not to mention the information I need is quick and constant,” said Kyle Busch.
  • “This is the right product, in the right market, with the right team,” said Jesse Itzler.
  • “Breaking news is key for DFS players but not everyone can sit in front of a computer all day waiting for it to break. The Fantasy Life app makes it easy with super-fast news alerts pushed to mobile to be able to be a winning player and also have a life,” said Al Zeidenfeld.
  • “Fantasy Life fills the need for an active fantasy and betting community, and combines that with the tech to provide the quickest real-time news updates. It’s incredibly useful, to the point where if you don’t have this app, you and your team are at a disadvantage,” said Eric Norlin of SK Ventures.
