Hey folks, today we at Yahoo Sports are proud to be raising our Fantasy game to the next level and giving you the chance to crown a champion every single day — presenting Yahoo Sports Daily Fantasy: one-day and one-week fantasy contests for cash prizes.
Daily Fantasy is designed for you to play with your friends on any device and win real cash prizes, whether you’re a seasoned Yahoo Fantasy player or new to the game. A simplified salary cap, along with real-time sports news and scores from Yahoo’s Fantasy experts, makes setting up your line-up and joining in daily fantasy contests fast and easy.
I wanted to personally invite you all to try out some of our MLB contests beginning today. Entry fees range from free to $500, with options all throughout including $1, $2, $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, and $250.
We’re offering four primary types of contests at launch to give you a variety of ways to compete for prizes:
- Head-to-Head: One opponent, winner take all.
- Group: Play against small or large groups of opponents.
- 50/50: Top half of entrants win.
- Guaranteed to Run: Will run even if unfilled, often with large prize pools (tomorrow we’re running an MLB contest with $50,000 in prizes!)
We plan to offer all the 4 major US sports including baseball, football, basketball and hockey as their seasons begin and we’ll explore others based on demand.
Daily Fantasy is easy to play within the Yahoo Fantasy app on iPhone or on any device through your browser.
If you already have a Yahoo account you are ready to play Yahoo Daily Fantasy! If you are interested in participating in paid entry contests you can deposit money to your Yahoo Fantasy Wallet using Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, or PayPal. The Fantasy Wallet is shared across all of our Fantasy Sports offerings including pro leagues for added convenience.
So head over to sports.yahoo.com/dailyfantasy to get started! We’re running a totally free to enter MLB contest tomorrow that will pay the winner $1,000.
