SkyBet to launch fantasy football platform


SkyBet are planning to launch a daily fantasy football platform.

Little is known about Fantasy Six-A-Side at this stage but the bookmaker is asking players to register to be part of beta testing.

The game will be free-to-play and the game engine will be powered by Opta. The stage of development is not known and no launch date has been confirmed.

No prizes will be available during testing and players will be asked to help in the development of the game by flagging up bugs and glitches, as well as providing feedback on the user experience.
