In partnership with media company The Mirror and UK bookmaker dabblebet, Perform Gaming has launched dabblebet Five-a-Side Live, a free-to-play fantasy football product that pits players against each other on a game-by-game basis – all while watching the World Cup action unfold live on TV.
Users do not face the usual hassles of budget caps and other restrictions in selecting any five players, with five subs available in-play. There are also five available boosts, which allow users to double their score in 5-minute blocks.
Players can win cash prizes and free bets with dabblebet on selected fixtures throughout the World Cup, leading into the 2018-19 domestic football season. The game is powered by premium Opta feeds with all points and leaderboards updating in real time.
Fantasy teams score points not only for the traditional goals, assists and clean sheets, but also for blocks, interceptions, pass completion, dribbles, shots on and off target, crosses and aerial duels.
Football fans watching the matches and fine-tuning their Fantasy team, can also view dabblebet markets and place bets directly from the game.
The Mirror’s betting and gaming account manager Robert Hudson said Wednesday: “The launch of dabblebet Five-a-Side Live has got us all really excited about the World Cup.
“It’s a completely new and unique game and linking up with Perform ensures players a first class experience that will get them coming back every day.”
