Daily Fantasy Sports was introduced as an alternative to season long fantasy leagues. It allowed users to compete in daily competitions with the instant gratification of a payout similar to that of sports gambling – without the shady oversea/underground bookies.
DFS has since gained massive popularity across all sports due to its ease of access, instant payouts and straightforward scoring system.
How Do You Play?
