bet365 launch exclusive £500,000 Fantasy Game for the Premier League

Ahead of the 2023/24 Premier League season getting underway, bet365 have launched a free-to-play fantasy football game with a prize fund of £500,000.

This full season game is single-entry only, meaning users can enter only once per bet365 customer account.

A £50,000 jackpot is up for grabs for the overall winner, with £450,000 worth of prizes to be distributed amongst the top 10,000 players.

This £500,000 prize pool makes bet365's competition the most lucrative Premier League fantasy game on offer.

The format will be familiar to regular players of season-long fantasy football games, with users tasked with managing a 15-man squad throughout 38 gameweeks of the 2023/24 campaign.

bet365's Steve Freeth said: "Fantasy football is a huge topic of conversation during my week and our free-to-play fantasy football game is an absolute cracker, with a whopping £500,000 prize pool and a mouth-watering £50,000 going to the winner with cash prizes for the top 10,000 places!

"Not only that, there will also be a £65,000 prize pool set aside for managers of the month and that will come in handy if you’re a bit streaky like me!"

bet365 Fantasy Game - Season 23/24 transfers:

Managers will have the opportunity to continue upgrading and adapting their squads throughout the season by using transfers:

  • The transfer period for each Gameweek opens immediately after each Gameweek deadline, which is set at the kick off time for the first match. 
  • Every team is granted a single Free Transfer each Gameweek, and any unused transfers can be accumulated, allowing managers to devise different strategies throughout the campaign.
  • However, if a manager opts to make more transfers than their available Free Transfers, they will be deducted points. For each extra transfer made, a 4-point transfer penalty will be issued.
  • During a transfer period, all team modifications - including transfers, formation adjustments or wildcards - are preliminary and not final. This means managers can review, undo or reset these changes freely until each Gameweek deadline.

Late registration for bet365's Fantasy Game is available up until 30th September, which coincides with Gameweek 7.
