FlowPlay unveils free-to-play daily fantasy sports game

4 April 2016

Virtual gaming specialist FlowPlay has launched a new virtual currency-based daily fantasy sports (DFS) game, ‘All Star Daily Fantasy’.

Available within FlowPlay’s flagship ‘Vegas World’ social casino title, the new game joins growing suite of free-to-play social sports wagering games on offer from the company.

All Star Daily Fantasy will be targeted at the US market, where the future of DFS remains uncertain due to concerns over its legality, but as the new title is only available on a free-to-play basis, it can be accessed by players across the country.

Launching with contests dedicated to the NBA basketball league, All Star Daily Fantasy will offer individual tournaments, 50-50, and high-low betting options, with players able to take part using virtual currency.

Players can participate in multiple games, are allowed several entries per contest, can edit any line-up right up to the start of the game and have the option to buy insurance at the start of any game, which will replace a portion of the wager if the game results in a loss.

Derrick Morton, chief executive of FlowPlay, said: “Significant issues – including regulatory pressure, limited audiences, and high operating costs – continue to burden the online fantasy sports industry, especially in the US.

“FlowPlay is leveraging our experience in the casual games industry to introduce a completely new model that is sustainable and legal.

“Social sports wagering games are a viable alternative to the embattled daily fantasy industry, and supply an appealing experience for millions of sports enthusiasts that have been largely alienated by current offerings.”
