Join our free Euro 2016 fantasy footy games


Fancy a bit of friendly fantasy football action during the Euros? Step this way…

We’ll be hosting several contests throughout Euro 2016 using DraftKings – free to enter and just for fun.

The mini leagues will run across specific game days – starting with the three matches on Saturday when England face Russia, Switzerland take on Albania and Wales play Slovakia.

DraftKings football scoring systemThere’s no tournament-long contest, so don’t worry about having to stick with it, just dip in and out when you please.

How to play

To get involved, just go to the football section DraftKings lobby and search “GambleGeek” and you should see our contests there.

If you haven’t got a DraftKings account, you can sign up here.

Then, you need to select your eight-man team for that round of matches and cross your fingers. It’s a good idea to make sure you’re familiar with the scoring system when picking your team.

Each player can enter only one team and places in the contests are limited but by all means get your friends involved.

Learn the ropes

If you’ve never played DraftKings before, there’s a host of guides to help you get started, including a list of recommended players.

But don’t stress too much, these contests are for bragging rights only.
