LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2016) - Digital sports media company, Sports Perfecta, is proud to announce the launch of Daily Fantasy Jockey, the newest addition to its eclectic roster of fantasy games.
"Horse racing remains huge in the United States. It's a multi-billion dollar industry, and the greatest races are still held on tracks in America," said Hiro Watanabe, CEO of Sports Perfecta. "We're thrilled to launch a new fantasy platform that allows fans of horse racing to play fantasy in a non-traditional way by claiming a stake in the jockey, not the horse."
Daily Fantasy Jockey offers horse racing enthusiasts the opportunity to engage in fantasy more frequently than they would with fantasy horse racing. Because jockeys race much more often than horses run -- often several times in one day, as opposed to a horse, which is one-and-done -- Daily Fantasy Jockey provides participants with more opportunities to collect additional fantasy points.
Players start by drafting six jockeys from a list of the top 50 money ranking jockeys. Each contest is based on a variety of jockeys and horses competing at different races on different tracks, and winning is based on points earned by each jockey on a team.
Contest types include:
- 50/50: Cash prize is split equally amongst the top 50% ranked participants.
- Winner Take All: Cash prize is given to the top ranked participant.
- Head-to-Head: Two participants face off, and the participant with the highest amount of points takes the whole cash prize.
Daily Fantasy Jockey is now available at www.fanxt.com/dailyfantasy/jockey, and will soon be available as an iOS and Android app.
