Fanduel Expanding to Fantasy Hockey and Fantasy Basketball
FanDuel.com is the first social fantasy sports game where you can draft a new fantasy team at any time during the season, as often as you like, and pitch it against a friend or other opponent for cash prizes. We launched our daily Fantasy Baseball game in July and weekly Fantasy Football game earlier this month and have seen phenomonal growth since the start of the football season.
Unlike season long fantasy football games, our number of players is increasing daily during the season, with week two entries 40% higher than week one. Additionally we’ve awarded over $10,000 in prizes in the last month alone. The close integration FanDuel has with social networks such as Facebook and Twitter mean that we have seen several hundred entries and challenges coming from Twitter alone so far this season.
Our fantasy hockey game has just launched and fantasy basketball is launching at the end of of October. Also, a lot of users have given us feedback that they would like to play a salary cap version of FanDuel so we will be trialling a salary cap version within the next week. With all that choice there is not excuse why fantasy fans can’t prove to their friends who is the top fantasy dog.
And remember if you are struggling with a fantasy football team with LT on your bench or waivering over Wes Welker, remember with FanDuel you can draft a completely new team every week and leave your injury worries behind.
