FantasyBet is one of the up-and-coming players in the daily fantasy football industry – making them a huge part of the frenzy that is sweeping the UK and many other countries around the world right now. If you are wondering “what is daily fantasy football?” or DFF as it is also commonly known as, then let us explain:
Daily fantasy football is a variant of traditional fantasy football (such as Fantasy Premier League) that millions of people around the UK and the rest of the world have played at some point in their lives. However, unlike traditional fantasy football, DFF contests are based upon a selection of one day’s fixtures, and then at the end of the day, the contest is over and you receive a ranking based upon your points total from that day. There is one other key difference between DFF and ordinary fantasy football – DFF offers an ABUNDANCE of money competitions. Yes, that is right, you can now play fantasy football for money, on a daily basis with no season-long commitments!

What leagues does FantasyBet offer?
Currently, FantasyBet offer a selection of contests covering the English Premier League, the English Championship, Spanish La Liga, Champions League, Europa League, English FA Cup, Norwegian Tippeligaen and the European Championship Finals.
How easy is the lobby to navigate?
The FantasyBet lobby is extremely user-friendly, with everything from the layout to the easy-to-use filters adding to the user’s experience. Firstly, the lobby is exceptionally easy to find as you will be instantly taken to it upon logging in. This is a perk in comparison to some of the competitor websites which in some cases require you to select the lobby from a menu… which may confuse some users. Upon logging in, you will see be greeted by FantasyBet’s range of daily fantasy football contests, sorted in order of their starting dates. The only exception is that contests with a guarantee are listed at the top, regardless of their starting date – and they are marked with ‘GTD’ (circled in the screenshot).
The FantasyBet lobby also contains 4 user-friendly filters that can be easily found at the top of the page, which you can also see circled in the screenshot below. The filters allow you to filter contests by competition (such as Premier League, Champions League, etc), by games rules (such as guaranteed prize pools, multi-entry contests etc), by buy-in fee (in which you can set a minimum/maximum buy-in amount that you wish to see), and finally also by duration (whereby you can select one-day contests, full week, full season etc). These filters make it extremely easy for any user to find a DFF contest that is most suited to their preferences.
Does FantasyBet offer guaranteed prize pools?
Like all DFF sites, FantasyBet offers a range of guaranteed prize pool contests, or GPPs as they are sometimes known. These are marked with ‘GTD’ as circled in the screenshot above, and they appear at the top of the lobby to make them easy to find. If you would like to learn more about what GPPs are and how to take advantage of them to earn additional profit from daily fantasy football, then please visit our Finding Added Value page where we explain GPPs in full.
The selection of GPPs offered by FantasyBet ranges from freerolls (free to enter contests) with a prize pool of £50, all the way up to pay-to-enter contests that have prize pools guaranteed at £10,000 or more for a variety of buy-in amounts.
What bonuses does FantasyBet offer?
