All Star Daily Fantasy; FlowPlay’s alternative to DFS

Some states in the USA consider Daily Fantasy Sports illegal gambling since the winnings are in real money. Seattle-based FlowPlay is offering an alternative with the launch of All Star Daily Fantasy.

 

 

ASDF offers basically everything DFS offers, but the winnings aren’t in real money. Players can buy the virtual currency with real money, but can not cash out the winnings, which means it’s not considered as gambling in the States.

 

 

Derrick Morton, CEO of FlowPlay, said: “We don’t want to be regulated, and we make enough money where there is really no reason to be in the real-money gambling world.”

ASDF gives players an alternative to DFS games usually played on DraftKings and FanDuel, sites where winners can cash out their earnings. Even though the companies claim that these are skill-based games, at least five states, including New York, have ruled that these games don’t require much skill and constitute gambling, forcing the companies to pull out of some states.

 

 

ASDF is a free game where you create a fantasy sports team, first starting with NBA teams. Players can participate in multiple games and can have several entries per contest. FlowPlay is planning to expand the game and include sports as hockey, football and baseball soon in 2016.
