Comprising of an online sportsbook and daily fantasy sports options, there is plenty of fun and excitement to be had when you sign up with FanTeam.
Right now, you can get Free Entry into FanTeam’s Second Chance Fantasy Football game for the remainder of the Premier League season, with a prize pool of up to £100,000 on offer for the lucky winners.
So if you’re the sort of Fantasy Football player who prefers to wait and see how the season is going, this is the perfect game for you – particularly if that pre-season team of yours has fallen by the wayside now.
You can play the part of the manager in daily or season-long fantasy tournaments on a range of sports – including football, tennis, basketball and MMA – picking the players/athletes you like best for your team, and watching them gain fantasy points based on their performances in real-world games.
The beauty of FanTeam is that it combines your Fantasy games with a more traditionalist sportsbook, giving you plenty of ways to use their site, which is unique among the usual markets and events you’ll see elsewhere.
Are you the kind of Fantasy Football player that gets frustrated in the way your team is looking by September and logs out of the app never to check again until the following August and the next new season?
Then FanTeam’s Second Chance fantasy football tournament might be for you. With a prize pool of £100,000 and a completely free entry token, players have the chance to start from scratch in the second half of the campaign to keep the interest going right through to the final day.
This Second Chance tournament gets underway on Gameweek 22 (on January 14) and runs through to the end of the season. A top 100 finish is worth a minimum of £50 and the top five players will win their share of £32,750 and what’s more, all verified accounts will receive one free entry – and you can even add more teams to the mix if you wish, though each additional team will cost £10 to enter.

If you’ve not indulged in the world of Fantasy Tournaments as yet, then they can be quite daunting – but they needn’t be and with certain tournaments on FanTeam offering Free Entry, there’s even a chance for big returns for very little outlay on these tournaments.
Basically, you play the role of the manager in these tournaments and pick the players you expect to rack up the points according to the rules above.
The points standings are updated in real time, so you can check how your players are doing and where you stand in the leaderboard and there are cash prizes available for the highest-finishing players in each tournament. According to FanTeam, it’s typical that 15-25% of entrants will win a prize of some sort, although most of these tournaments do require an entry fee to be paid.
The most popular style of Fantasy games in the UK at least are season-long fantasy games. Here, you pick your team at the start of the season (in the Premier League, for example) and watch over the 46 games to see how many points they can rack up, potentially making a few changes to your team along the way.
Like a real league system, the points are accumulated over the course of the season leaving those at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the season in the money. In a similar vein, there are ‘seasonal’ games that may take place over a month’s worth of fixtures or a certain stage of a tournament such as the group stages in the Champions League, where tournaments are played over six games.
There can also be prizes for ‘manager of the week’ and the likes in these longer-running games, meaning there is still plenty of reason to get involved even if you think you’re out of the running at a latter stage of the campaign.
Daily Fantasy games are obviously a much shorter version of the above, where points are played for over just one day or one weekend, given players the chance to win in a short period and join several tournaments without having to wait months to find out whether they are a winner or not.
The prize pools are lower in these tournaments, but so are the number of entrants so it does increase your chances of winning part of the prize pool. And that’s not to say the prizes aren’t worth winning – prize pools are guaranteed to have several tens of thousands every weekend in Premier League main events.
MMA, Tennis and the NBA are particularly popular with this type of bet alongside football of course and this can prove particularly profitable if there are one or two players you’re backing to fill their boots with points over a weekend of matches.
Renowned for Fantasy Football betting, FanTeam are one of the newest names to the online market after launching in 2014.
After making a big impression with their risk-free £20 sign-up bonus, they now offer general betting on a wide range of sports – whether it be football, tennis, basketball and so many more.
But still, their bread and butter comes from their excellent Fantasy products and you can get involved in Fantasy Football tournaments over a full season or just a specific fixture or even on different sports.

So what are the main features that FanTeam has to offer? Let’s find out.
The simple layout of the FanTeam website makes it a very easy one to navigate your way around.
All tabs are visible across the top of the homepage, giving you instant access to what you are looking for – without any need for drop-down menus.
Also, should you not wish to have it on full-screen mode and indeed restore down, everything is available via a collapsible menu which you can access by simply clicking the button in the top left corner.
Although, there is one slight issue with the ‘Pick-em Jackpot’ tab currently unavailable. Should you click on this, you will simply be redirected to the ‘Fantasy’ tab.
Unlike bookmakers like Bet365 and William Hill, the list of betting markets available is more simplified.
While there are no in-play markets, you can bet on the basics like winners, both teams to score and double chance.
But from a fantasy perspective, you can take advantage of daily and season-long tournaments – including the Premier League season game – as well as the player match-up feature, with real-money prizes there to be won.
FanTeam have a couple of offers and promotions available to both new and existing customers.
New customers can take full advantage of the sign-up offer by betting £20 on any sportsbook market and – win or lose – they will receive a £20 free bet. For the first eight weeks after signing up, there is the option to enter the weekly freeroll – only accessible by ticket – to train up before diving into the money games. Prize money will be paid out in tickets for upcoming tournaments.
Existing customers can receive free entry into the Premier League season game by taking advantage of the ‘Refer a Friend’ offer. The existing customer simply generates and activates a unique referral link and shares it with their friend. Once the friend creates their account, deposits a minimum of £20 and enters a team in the game, then both will receive a free £20 entry.
There are several payment methods that can be utilised with FanTeam.
Visa and Mastercard options are readily available, while PayPal, Skrill and Neteller are also accepted.
You can also transfer funds into your account through Trustly or ecoPayz; transactions can also be made with Paysafecard.
Most depositing methods are free of charge, but the same cannot be said for withdrawals with small fees charged depending on the method you opt for.
There are various customer services offered by FanTeam in order to create the best possible experience for punters.
You can flag up any issues almost immediately via the ‘Live Chat’ option.
