Few months back Star Pick launched Fantasy Match Up game which is quite easy to play. Star Pick is a gaming company that provides Fantasy sports and now has introduced an innovative and easy to play this head-to-head game on its platform called ‘Fantasy MatchUp’. The platform, which uses white label software from Norwegian B2B provider Scout Gaming has stated that the new real money game format is easy to understand and enables two users’ to play and win against one another instead of competing against thousands of others.
How to play Fantasy Match Up?
The format entails users to predict a minimum of four and maximum of ten pre-set duels (that is predict which one among two players playing in a given match would get higher points). In order to participate in the Fantasy Matchup, a user needs to select a minimum of four duels and up to a maximum of ten duels.
- Once the user enters the buy-in amount, the payout ladder will be displayed and the payouts are fixed. User can choose a buy-in amount ranging from Rs.5 to Rs.1000.
- The points accumulated in the duel will be based on the player’s performance in the real game. The player with the higher score at the end of the game wins the duel.
- In order to win the Fantasy Matchup, all the duels selected by the user should be correct.
- For example: If the user selects 10 duels in a Matchup, then, in order to win the Matchup, the user needs to win all the 10 duels. Note that even if one of the duels selected is incorrect you lose the game.
- Once the real game is completed, the winnings will be paid out to the users who has got all the duels correct.
- If one or both the players in a duel did not play the game, then the duel will be cancelled and the payout will be based on played duels in the Matchup.
Like if the number of duels selected is 4 and even if one of the duels is cancelled due to player not being part of the real Match, then the number of duels in the Matchup will be reduced to 3 and the payout will be based on 3 duels.
Apart from StarPick, this new format will soon also be live on other Indian fantasy sports platforms having a software solution from Scout Gaming, including India Bet backed fantasy gaming portal Scoring11
