Daily Fantasy Sport Betting has s certain appeal for those who want a skill based challenge when they put their money on the line.  

DraftKings the Boston USA based DFS operator has recently announced in partnership with Euroleague Basketball that it will begin live-streaming events to players in North America.

Customers will be able to access coverage of Euroleague basketball games using the DraftKings mobile application. The participant will be able to switch from the action to fantasy sports contests.

Along with original content supplied by DraftKings the operator said it expects the streaming service to be available in the US and Canada from early next year. Customers will be able to stream one game per week gratis or watch multiple games by playing in a $3 (€2.60) or above DraftKings fantasy sports competition.

DraftKings co-founder and chief executive officer Jason Robins commented on the initiative,  “Our goal is to become the one-stop destination and mobile companion for sports fans globally,” Robins continued to say, “Adding a live streaming component allows us to provide the best and most seamless product for our customers; this is what the future of sports looks like.”

Jordi Bertomeu, President and chief executive officer of EuroLeague Basketball, also commented on the partnership deal,  “Combining fantasy with live-streamed games is a perfect match, not only for the countless passionate Euroleague fans we have already, but for the many new ones who will now discover our unique brand of basketball through DraftKings.”
