Bantasy free-to-play daily fantasy league platforms go live
Bantasy, a new free-to-play daily fantasy sports (DFS) service, has launched new mobile applications for iOS and Android devices.
The service will compete with paid-for services such as DraftKings and FanDuel, which have endured a difficult period in the US due to the uncertainty over the legality of DFS real-money contests.
Those that sign up to Bantasy will have a spending cap of $50,000 (€44,400) to create a team, with players able to create their own leagues to compete against friends.
Players will compete for ‘Bantasy Chips’, as opposed to the real-money prizes on offer from rival companies.
As Bantasy’s service is free to play it is legal in all states across the US and does not conflict with laws regarding online betting.
