Just click on a link from OLBG - Draft Kings - that will take you to the UK site

Sign up via that link and then if you want to you can go to the app store and install the app on your phone

I thought I would give this a go as I have been playing something similar on a UK site this season (a scaled down version with only small pools of about 20-30 entrants) and would like to have a go in some larger pools.

It wasn't until after registering that I realised that you can only play via their app!!!. I have tried downloading the app without success, my old (android)tablet shows the app is downloading, but I can't find it and it is not showing up in my "downloads" folder. I will try again later.
I don't think it will work on my phone as it is an old phone with an old android system and a lot of apps show a message stating the app & phone are not compatible (everyone nags me to "upgrade" but it still works as a phone and I prefer to use my laptop for betting)

I think I will have to wait until they have a website version up and running or if I have a good win on the football I could buy a newer phone!!!

Have you had a go at any of the games The Shark ? I couldn't find any details of previous comps i.e number of entrants, winning dividends.

Hopefully I can access it soon and give it a try

Yes frustrating they don't have a UK website! But apparently it is coming soon.

Yes Ive played a few of their games, good fun + very exciting "in play" watching where you are and how it changes with each goal.

The games vary massively, something for everyone really. I think I'll be playing more of the double up type games with smaller fields and more winners to start with.

I'm going to very careful what I say here because I don't want it to be read the wrong way, but you're idea of playing double-up (or 50/50) games is in my opinion the best way to play Fantasy games. If you think about, if you are fairly knowledgeable about one or two sports, then sticking to those sports ought to make it fairly easy to beat half the competition in a double-up or 50/50 game - but make sure you pick games that are NOT multiple entry, otherwise you're competing with players who had made numerous entries.

I played the full season on NFL last season, and I did try various things using small stake games, of course. The double-up, 50/50, and smaller field Top 5/10 games (where you may only play against 25/50 people) were where I got successes. As expected, double-up and 50/50's were easier to win because you essentially only have to beat half the entries. Top 5/10 comps were a little harder but far from impossible and the reward is a better, but expect to lose more of them than double-up or 50/50.

If you know a lot about a sport, it is possible to do well.
