Is FantasyBet the future of fantasy football? With competitions across four leagues, FantasyBet offers huge flexibility in its range of games and options. You can even play the Norwegian Tippeligaen – perhaps not too surprising, as the site was initially set up by a group of Norwegian friends and football fans. This is one site that gets the basics absolutely spot on.


FANTASY FIVES VERDICT: Fantasybet offer hugely flexible game with just about any option you can think of. It aims to put you in control, and definitely succeed. The site is very easy to navigate, with a range of tooltips to hover over for instant extra information. Initial problems with live scoring have been ironed out and in this respect the game now flies. With its innovative team selection lists and regular promos, it is no wonder that this game won Best Fantasy Product at the 2015 SBC Betting on Football Awards.  While the core functions of FantasyBet deliver, some additional functionality around other games in play would be a welcome addition.

Game overview

Once you have picked the contest you would like to play, you will need to select a team. You will be given a £100m budget to select your 11 key players plus four subs. The generous budget does not make it the toughest of strategic tests; however, if you want more of a challenge, choose the Shared, Unique or Lucky List options to restrict the number of available players to 60.

The points system is not as comprehensive as some fantasy football games but it is easy to follow and available on the website. The best way to approach FantasyBet is to play a few free-to-enter games to familiarise yourself with the in game options.
