Draftstars, Australia’s No.1 Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) platform, owned by PlayUp Limited, will be offering over $1 million in prize pools for the BBL, including a $40,000 prize pool in the first match! Draftstars, Australia’s No.1 Daily Fantasy Sport (DFS) platform, will offer cricket fans the opportunity to win over $1 million in prize money throughout this season’s KFC Big Bash Tournament which begins on Thursday, December 10, including an opening $40,000 prize pool. This builds on Draftstars biggest ever AFL & NRL seasons where over $13 million was won by DFS players throughout the country!

“It is clear there is a growing appetite for DFS in Australia as we have seen significant growth on our platform over the last 18 months.” Daniel Simic, PlayUp’s Global CEO commented. “Our players enjoy the opportunity to test their skills and knowledge of the game against their mates and other competitors. For an entry fee of only $15 and a chance to win a share of huge prize pools for every BBL game, there is no better way to get involved and enjoy your cricket even more! In DFS BBL every ball matters. Our live leader board keeps players on the edge of their seats and enhances the fan experience like nothing else in the market. Don’t just watch it, play it!”

Draftstars offers contests to cater for all skill levels of DFS players. Contest entry fees start from as little as 50c and allow new players to try Draftstars and hone their skills as they learn the art of DFS. Contests will run for every game, so players will be given the opportunity to enter new contests every day throughout the entire tournament with no season long commitment.
