While sports betting fans around the country are desperate for the AFL to kick off Thursday night, the daily fantasy sports community are also frothing at the mouth at the thought of their favourite DFS sport back in action after a lengthy hiatus.
And the Australian daily fantasy sports sites are certainly coming to the party, with some massive prize pools on offer this weekend.
In exciting news, global gaming juggernaut, DraftKings, have announced they will be offering fantasy AFL for the very first time. DraftKings are offering a huge US$80,000 prize pool, with US$20,000 for the winner, all for just a US$10 entry! Spots are limited so make sure you reserve your entry as once the contest is full, it will be locked out!
There’s also a heap of smaller buy-in contests starting from just US$0.50 so there’s something for everyone at DraftKings!
Australia’s leading DFS site is Draftstars and they are once again leading the way with an enormous prize pool on offer for Thursday night. They are guaranteeing a $120,000 prize pool for Richmond vs Collingwood for just a $15 buy-in. This is one of the largest AFL prize pools in Australian DFS history, so we’re excited to see if the local community can fill this contest and hit the ambitious guarantee. Draftstars will no doubt also add smaller contests with their $2 Mini contests always popular and the new Micro contest giving a healthy $3,000 prize pool for just a $0.50 entry!
Draftstars are also offering big prize pools for NRL and Horse Racing if that tickles your fancy!
So if you’re looking for a different way to bet on AFL this weekend then why not check out these daily fantasy AFL contests and enjoy the thrill of DFS!
