Best Australian Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) Sites

Best Australian Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) Sites

Similar to the growth of betting when it first became available online, daily fantasy sports (DFS) has boomed over the last few years and it is beginning to take off in Australia.

Daily Fantasy Sports involves competitors selecting a team from players of that sport under a specific salary cap and as they compete during their match they will gain or lose points depending on their performance. At the end of the fantasy tournament the competitor whose combined players scores the most amount of points will be the winner.

Before joining a daily fantasy website, it is best to have an understanding of what each site has to offer. We have listed the best daily fantasy sites in Australia and offered a brief description and links to the review pages of each DFS site. 

Draftstars

The revolution and growth of Daily Fantasy sports in Australia continued at the end of the March of 2016 when Foxsports launched Draftstars and became official partners with CrownBet and the AFL. Draftstars is looking likely to become the largest DFS site in Australia and with FoxSports and CrownBet behind the venture you know they are going to be hard to beat.

Draftstars currently runs DFS contests for the NRL, NBA and AFL. Their AFL contests are easily the largest in the country as they run several turnaments each weekend, sometimes with combined guaranteed prize pools in excess of $80,000. 

Draftstars use software provided by US-based company DraftDay. The software is of a world-class and makes navigating the Draftstars website easy and enjoyable and makes Draftstars the benchmark when it comes to DFS n Australia. Draftstars are also one of the few DFS sites in Australia to offer a deposit bonus.

Fantasy Games Australia

Fantasy Games is a relatively new Daily Fantasy site to launch in Australia and it is continuing to grow as it offers a range of sports including NBA, A-league, NRL, AFL, EPL and Cricket. As Fantasy Games is one of the newest DFS sites, the guarantees on their site aren’t as large as MoneyBall, but the positive is that you will be playing against less opponent and more likely to reach the cash.

A massive plus for Fantasy Games is that they are currently one of the few Daily Fantasy sites in Australia to offer a bonus when signing up. New customers will have their first deposit matched with a bonus bet up of 25% of the amount you deposited up to $400. Therefore, if you deposit $400 as a new member on Fantasy Games then you will be credited with a $100 bonus bet.
