How to Play Daily Fantasy in Australia

Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) is becoming one of the most popular forms of punting as it allows punters to engage themselves in a totally different way to ever before, so that's why you need to learn how to play Daily Fantasy Sports in Australia. It allows sport lovers to take part in their favourite fantasy games without making a season long commitment as the contest can last from as long as a weekend to as little as just one match. 

Getting Started with DFS

In Australia there are currently three main Daily Fantasy Sports websites that are used by punters to bet on. MoneyBall, FanSports and Draftstars are all relatively new but growing DFS sites which we consider the Best Australian DFS sites.

While each site offers unique features and DFS tournament options, beginning to play DFS is relatively the same at each Australia DFS site.

Once you have created an account and deposited funds, you will be able to enter DFS contests - while some sites offer free-to-enter tournaments that you can try before depositing real money. On each site there is different sporting options, which once selected you will be able to see every tournament for that sport that is available for you to enter.

Entering Your First DFS Contest

Once you have selected the sport you prefer and have found the tournament with a structure and prize pool that you are happy with, you simply click on the tournament and you will be provided with additional information such as how the scoring will be conducted, the entry fee, prize pool structure and how many people have already entered the tournament.

If you are happy with all of the information and wish to take part in the tournament, then simply click enter and you will then be taken to another page where you choose your DFS team.

Selecting Your DFS Team

Each website has a different salary cap available, but at each DFS platform you are required to choose the team you think will perform the best without exceeding the salary cap.

Each player’s price varies according to how they perform and the score they have been averaging.

The best players are a lot more expensive than those that score less and it will be challenging for you to fit together a team full of stars under the salary cap.

Once you have created your team and it is under the salary cap, you can confirm your entry by clicking the enter button and then your team will be submitted.

If you have second thoughts about your team or there is a late inclusion or withdrawal you can have the option of editing your team if the tournament hasn’t started.

Sweating Your DFS Scores to Victory

When the DFS tournament has started, you can track your team’s progress by clicking on the live option. This allows you to see how each of your players are performing as their score will be updated live throughout the match.

The leader board also allows you to see how your opponent’s teams are performing and who is leading the way. 

This makes for the sporting match you are watching a lot more exciting as you are willing the players you have selected in your DFS team to perform at a high level and earn your team points.

At the conclusion of the match, your team’s score will be finalised and if you have finished in a place that wins money then the amount will be credited automatically into your account.
