OUR FANTASY SPORTS PLATFORM PUTS YOU IN THE GAME.
WHAT IS FANTASY SPORT?
Fantasy sports is a game where participants assemble imaginary teams using real players of different professional sports teams.
So for the EPL you could draft a team consisting of a striker from Arsenal, a midfielder from Chelsea, a goal keeper from Manchester City, etc.
Everyone else in your league does the same thing, and then your teams compete against each other.
So how do you decide who wins? Points are assigned to certain actions — a striker scoring a goal is 6 points, or a keeper would get your team 2 points per save he had that game.
At the end of all the games all of your players’ points are combined, and whichever team has the highest score, wins.
THE FANTASY SPORTS MARKET
Fantasy sports is a very rapidly growing part of the electronic sports and entertainment market. It grew almost five fold in one decade.
STARTING WITH 12.6 MILLION PLAYERS IN 2005,
IT APPROACHED 60 MILLION IN 2017
IN THE US AND CANADA ALONE.
Modern fantasy sports are dominated by daily fantasy, a shortened version of the game which is easier to learn, and has much higher retention that the traditional games.
THE SELECTA PLATFORM
Predictor is the simplest game form in the Selecta system.
Players compete for a share of prize-money each week, by “predicting” who they think will win from a set choice of events.
These events can be regular season matches, championships, or tournaments such as the world cup.
6 matches are added to the system for the weekend.
Users select who they think will win each match.
Users also guess the score of the “Jackpot” match.
Any players getting the result of all 6 matches correct shares in the weekly $500 prize.
Any player getting all 6 match results PLUS the correct score in the Jackpot Match share in the grand jackpot $5000.
Scores reset each week to encourage both poorly performing
players as well as new players to enter.
3-man “Fast Fantasy” is a live fantasy sports game developed to get users accustomed to the platform, the rules and the scoring systems, without being overwhelmed with the team budgets and player salary intricacies that are found in full fantasy sport games.
Here, players compete for a share of prizes allocated to a chosen match day, by creating their own 3-man squad to play against other users.
- Game involves all live matches for a particular day. (ie. Sat August 12 includes all teams playing that day)
Users select 3 players - 1 defender, 1 mid, 1 forward - from any team/squad playing that day. (Eg, Man U defender, Arsenal Mid, Brighton Forward)
Players earn points based on their performance in the real game that day.
A leaderboard shows the scores of each “Fast Fantasy” user and their team score for that day.
