Since the beginning of the 2000s, it has spread a new kind of game in sports addicts: Fantasy Sports.
Fantasy Sports are games where participants assemble imaginary teams using real players of different professional sports team and compete with others – often a group of friends -, points are made based on real event results and whoever has the highest score wins a cash prize.
In the last few years, Fantasy Sports evolved into Daily Fantasy Sports – a spin on traditional season-long contests – with a boom that doubled the usual income of the industry.
Traditional Fantasy Sports typically occur over an entire season, are offline so are limited to a small group of friends and they are considered for stats geeks only, as they are quite complicated.
On the other hand, Daily Fantasy Sports are an accelerated variant of Traditional Fantasy Sports, indeed they last just a single day or a week maximum. They are usually played on PC or on mobile increasing incredibly the available cash prizes and reducing the fee to enter the contests. They are so simple and easy anyone can play and besides you can challenge every day different competitors, making the game quite more stimulating! But it’s not only that, there are other differences as the convenience of the format, the ability to access the services on mobile devices, the structure and payouts of Daily Fantasy Games that provide a feeling of “instant gratification” to its players, that made these games so addicting.

Thanks to its simplicity it is perfect for new market education and mass market appeal. Besides, pre-selected athletes are available for a limited time creating an urgency in playing for end-users.
