Skill and knowledge based format
Select between 4-10 head-to-head duels to increase winnings

 

StarPick, India’s leading fantasy sports platform introduced the innovative and easy to play Fantasy Matchup, the first of its kind head-to-head duel between 2 players in India. With this, StarPick also becomes Scout Gaming Group’s first operator globally to introduce this new, innovative and proprietary game.

StarPick’s Fantasy Matchup format is extremely exciting, very easy to understand and play where just the users’ skills helps them win instead of competing against thousands of others. There are pre-set duels between players of a team for the particular day. In order to participate in the Fantasy Matchup, a user needs to select a minimum of 4 duels and up to a maximum of 10 duels.

Trigam Mukherjee, Co-founder and CEO of StarPick India said, “At StarPick, it is our constant endeavour to disrupt and redefine fantasy gaming in India as well as keeping the users engaged using superior technology and innovation. Fantasy Matchup is one such radical and innovative game we have introduced on our platform. Globally this concept is very new and it is now available to our users in India through StarPick. In fact, we are Scout Gaming Group’s first client to launch Fantasy Matchup. We believe our users will love this new format and test their skills and knowledge to get rewarded financially. My message to the users is ‘keep skilling it’.”

“StarPick is leading the innovation in the Indian Fantasy Sports market and we are of course delighted that they are the first operator to launch the Scout Gaming Group match-up game, based on our in-house-proprietary expected fantasy points. We are also planning to launch new innovative fantasy related games during the coming year,” comments Scout Gaming Group’s CEO, Andreas Ternstrom.

In StarPick’s Fantasy Matchup, the fantasy points accumulated in the duel will be based on the player’s actual performance in the real game. The player with the higher score at the end of the game wins the duel. In order to win the Fantasy Matchup, all the duels selected by the user should be correct.

Some other innovative and easy to play formats introduced by StarPick that are highly appreciated by users are:

  • Flexi Five – Pick any 5 players.
  • Cricket Heroes – Quick and easy format where a user has to pick 3 players (one Batsman, one Bowler and one All-Rounder).
  • H2H – Create your own challenge and go head to head with a friend or any user on StarPick.
  • Season Game – A multiple gameweek tournament can also be a “season game”, where the tournament endures over a whole season.

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.

There are prizes for best manager per month and even per game week. A side tournament for the high rollers is provided as well, with a hefty buy-in of €2,625.

Even with the season game around the corner, Scout Gaming Group is first and foremost a daily fantasy sports provider, offering a wide variety of sports and leagues with real money buy-ins and prizes, including: NBA Basket, NHL hockey, MLB baseball, NFL football, UFC Mixed Martial Arts, Grand Slam tennis, IPL Cricket and of course soccer and several of local leagues globally.

Additionally, Scout Gaming Group is a pioneer in offering betting markets on fantasy points duels, matchups, and over/under fantasy points. Using the same scoring system as for DFS, it is possible to set up duels between players from different matches, and even from different sports.
