How To Play
What Are The Essential Rules For Fantasybet Football?
Entry to each game closes five minutes before the start of the first match in a given contest. However, in Flash games, the manager gets an additional three minutes to finalise and submit their team after entering the contest.
The value of your squad cannot be greater than your budget, which is set at £100 million by default. If you create your own contest, you can change the budget in the advanced settings.
Your squad must consist of 15 players, which is broken down into three attackers, five midfielders, five defenders and two goalkeepers. You can choose these players yourself or use the auto-complete function to let the computer select players for you. You can make changes to the squad after using auto-complete.
You must also select a starting 11 from your 15-player squad. This must consist of one goalkeeper, between three and five defenders, three to five midfielders, and one to three attackers.
How Exactly Do You Score Points At Fantasybet Football?
Players receive points in each match, and they accumulate across an entire contest.
What Type Of Contests Can Be Played At Fantasybet?
Contests vary from one-off games to a standard full season. Options include Daily Fantasy, Weekly Fantasy and Season Fantasy. Flash mode increases the pressure, giving you only three minutes to choose your team.
Can I Create My Own Fantasybet Football Contests?
Create your own contests via the Create Game menu. Doing this also gives you access to the advanced settings page, where you can set certain restrictions to your liking, including maximum budgets, and remove certain players or whole teams from being available in the game.
Further Fantasybet Football Information
A team captain must be selected. For every game that the captain plays in, he will receive double points. A vice-captain also has to be chosen, who will stand in for your chosen captain should he not play for any reason.
Those players not selected in your starting 11, including your second goalie, sit on the substitute bench. After the game week or contest has ended, these players will become subject to automatic substitution, which will be used if anyone in your starting-11 squad does not play throughout the game week or contest.
