£500,000 prize pool on offer in season-long free-to-play game
bet365 has launched an exclusive new fantasy football game in partnership with Scout Gaming Group ahead of the 2023/24 Premier League season.
The free-to-play game is live now, with plenty of time for all new and eligible bet365 customers to register and select their squads. Managers are able to select their teams at any time, and continue to make changes right up until the first game of the Premier League season, when Burnley host Manchester City on Friday, August 11th.
The bet365 Fantasy Game boasts a huge prize pool for those leading managers who are still challenging at the top of the leaderboard come the end of the season. A staggering £500,000 is available for the top 10,000 ranking users, with the outright winner guaranteed the £50,000 top prize.
This is further enhanced with the addition of an extra £65,000 in monthly prizes for the top 1,000 ranking managers each month.
Within days of the game launching over 20,000 individual managers had already registered and selected their provisional teams. Both bet365 and SGG are thrilled by the early uptake, and expect many thousands more to have their squads assembled by the first Premier League game on August 11th
The game includes many unique features, which have been developed collaboratively by Scout Gaming Group and its partners. Fantasy football plays an integral role in every match day for players around the world, and by enhancing the player experience on bet365, both brands are bidding to increase engagement and enjoyment of the product.
