DraftStars Fantasy Sports
Are you passionate about sports and enjoy taking a punt? DraftStars is a leading daily fantasy sports league established by Crown Bet for AFL, NFL, NBA, Cricket and Soccer. How daily fantasy sports works is you build a team of athletes in a specific sports league, who then compete against other teams that are selected in a similar way. The teams earn points based on the statistical analysis of the real-life performance of the athletes when they compete in current world events.
Daily fantasy sports is more exciting than traditional season-long fantasy sports, as sporting competitions are conducted over shorter periods of time. Events can run for a single day through to a week, rather than being played over a full season. Which means you have the opportunity to change your fantasy sports team daily or weekly, rather than being bound to your chosen team the whole season.
There are heaps of benefits from competing in Daily Fantasy Sports! By picking your favourite fantasy sports team, you have the chance to play in the most exhilarating contests for huge cash prizes on a weekly basis.
It’s simple and easy to pick your ultimate sports team. You can select a team in minutes by either using our salary cap formats or you can test your sporting knowledge with our live draft system. Our drafting system also allows you to trial new teams, players, as well as sporting tactics every week. Whether you prefer fantasy NRL, fantasy AFL or fantasy EPL, whatever your sports betting interests, with so many competitions and options to choose from, you can select the sports you prefer!
As DraftStars has a live match centre, you are also able to enjoy the thrill of seeing your players score points as soon as it happens. The live leaderboard allows you to stay up-to-date with your opponents scores, as well as your contest ranking.
DraftStars was introduced as a joint venture between CrownBet and Fox Sports and is proudly the official daily fantasy sports partner for the AFL. And if you usually do your sports betting on the go, don’t forget to check out the DraftStars convenient mobile app!
