A Bet A Prepares For Online Fantasy Sports Betting

A Bet A is a leading supplier of betting systems for the U.K. Ireland and other global jurisdictions. It has recently announced it will launch the Euro 2016-based fantasy game at retail bookie outlets across Ireland and the U.K.

The new ‘MegaFan Manager’ product will be introduced in about 1,000 betting shops during the initial launch of the fantasy game opportunity. The 2016 UEFA European Championship will be the focus of the service allowing punters to apply predictive skills for the 15th edition of the UEFA European Championship football tournament. Participants will be able to develop a virtual team using a virtual budget of £100m.

Utilising data from Opta Sports the game will be operated through Betting Limited’s U.K. gambling commission pool betting licence. Operations Manager Jason Hardman commented that every MegaFan Manager’s £2.00 stake will go towards a global jackpot which will accumulate over the tournament. Hardman continued to say, "Daily fantasy sports games are enjoying huge success online around the world and we're excited to now be able to deliver such a popular product into Britain's betting shops for the first time," Hardman said. "Our aim has always been to breathe new life into those shops with compelling content and we firmly believe a game like MegaFan Manager will not only interest existing customers but appeal to a new generation too.
"It is a risk-free, plug-and-play product with no fees for our existing customers, and it involves a simple integration for those using other EPOS systems should they want it."
Assuming the launch will be a big hit among the bookies and the consumers and there is no reason to think otherwise looking at the appetite for fantasy sports pools elsewhere, the company intends to launch the product full-time just ahead of the domestic season in the U.K., with ambitions of  making the product  available to online operators with other sports included in the line up.
