UK’s fastest growing Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) betting platform.
Premier Punt has been continually evolving since its inception in 2013. It combines traditional eleven a side daily and weekly games, with no season long commitment, but with the added edge of putting your money where your mouth is. The good people at Premier Punt have even created the best DFS app on the market today just to make it even easier for you to clean up while you are on the move.

The single six a side games are rapidly becoming the preferred option of the DFS user and the Premier Punt app has been designed to reflect this trend towards the single game market. The stats are driven by a live feed supported by Opta. This live feed enables Premier Punt to award players for not only scoring a goal or keeping a clean sheet but for successful pass completion, interceptions and tackles therefore producing the most representative reflection of a player’s overall performance available. This enables you to follow the game as it happens while keeping a track of your team’s progression in the game you have joined. There are loads of game options on Premier Punt with the stakes starting as low as £2. It’s a great way to interact with your mates while watching the game down the boozer or interacting from home or on the move through social media.

For those of us who also enjoy a traditional bet, Premier Punt are in the process of adding a sportsbook to their growing repertoire. This will also be connected through their app and will offer for example first goal scorer odds when you select a player for your six a side game. The sportsbook is expected to be rolled out in February 2017.
Premier Punt are currently looking to raise funds through the crowdfunding website Seedrs.com. This campaign, which still has 32 days to run, offers potential investors the opportunity to catch one of the UK’s fastest growing start-ups on the way up with the potential of excellent returns in the future.

Shares can be purchased from £16 and with over one hundred investors having invested up to £38,000 individually the £200,000 target investment is currently sitting at 92% complete. This is a stunning performance from a company currently in its third year of existence.
Premier Punt CEO john Gordon says “The future looks very exciting for Premier Punt, our app is evolving and has been top of the apple download charts on several occasions this season, regularly beating the Sky Sports fantasy app. We do not waste shareholder’s money on traditional advertising preferring to use digital media which targets our potential customers directly.

We are also proud to be a preferred partner of Southampton F.C. Our logo can be seen around the world on the backdrop when manager and players are interviewed after matches. Our roll-out of the sportsbook will be a gamechanger for us, making us the only UK company to combine DFS with traditional online football betting. 2017 is going to be massive for this company.”

THE MOST EXCITING FANTASY FOOTBALL SEASON YET?

THE MOST EXCITING PREMIER LEAGUE SEASON YET?

The Premier League is regarded as one of the best elite football leagues in world football. Much of the reasoning behind this comes down to the competitive and fast paced nature of the football being played in England’s top flight.

Leicester City’s rise to prominence last season highlighted once again why millions upon millions of football fans across the globe tune in each week to watch their favourite Premier League stars battle it out and it would seem that interest is continuing to grow rather than slow down.

For the first time ever, Fantasy Premier League has attracted over 4 million players and this is in no small part down to the success of Leicester City FC last season and the fun and excitement that this brought in terms of fantasy football. Whilst the bargain basement players of last season have now shot up in price (the likes of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Dele Alli), the hunt continues for the new cheap hot shots in the 2016/17 season.

Whilst Leicester will perhaps struggle to replicate what they did last season, this season still looks like being one of the most exciting yet – and we are asking the question whether this could be the most exiting Premier League campaign yet? If it is, then surely that transfers to fantasy football and our very own daily fantasy football games.

THE TOP 5 

As it stands, the top 5 clubs in the Premier League are separated by just 3 points. The top three teams are all tied on 23 points and have all played some blistering stuff at times this season. Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool are only split by goal difference and with all three averaging almost 2.5 goals per game it makes for very entertaining viewing. Man City were most people’s guess to run away with the league and it looked that way after the first 5 games, but a stutter since then has opened things up and the free flowing football of Liverpool and Arsenal has caused a few eyebrows to be raised.

Chelsea and Tottenham are close on the heels of the leaders and both carry their own title challenging credentials. The top 5 all have their own strengths and all 5 clubs have top managers who all have slightly different styles.

No one likes a one horse race and this seasons looks like it will be the most open for years. As the season wears on, we may see a 2 or 3 team pull away emerge but we wouldn’t be surprised if all five of these teams are in the mix come the end of the season.

WHAT IT MEANS FOR FANTASY FOOTBALL? 

Aside from just making entertaining viewing for the neutrals, the wide openness of the title race makes for highly engaging and exciting fantasy football. Season long fantasy football games are developing nicely and daily or weekly fantasy football games resemble the excitement of the weekly Premier League heat more than ever.

With 5 teams performing well and around another 5 clubs having decent form beneath them, there are plenty of players to choose from. This breadth of player selection is making for some incredibly exciting pick 6 games and none more so than the big North London derby that takes place on Sunday. Will it be a goal fest or a tactically defensive duel? Do you pick the Spurs defence that has stood up so well so far or opt for the Arsenal attacking flair players like Sanchez?

There is nothing worse than template team boringness and this season is promising to eradicate the template team for good. After all – who wants to play fantasy football when everyone has the same players?

The unpredictability of the Premier League will never disappear and we will always have fixtures where anybody can beat a somebody – but this season looks to have that more than ever and with the goals that several of the big boys are bringing to the table – it looks set to be one of the best Premier League’s in years and an even better fantasy football league.

Pick 6 in our North London derby game on Premier Punt right now.

CHELSEA VS. MAN UTD PICK SIX

PREMIER PUNT GAME OF THE WEEK: CHELSEA VS. MANCHESTER UNITED

Many of us settled down for an evening of brilliant blistering entertainment in the form of North West rivalry between Manchester United and Liverpool on Monday evening only to be left feeling somewhat cheated… but like an ever faithful puppy dog we have already moved on from the boredom of Jose Mourinho’s negative football as we look forward to another set of Premier League fixtures for game week 9.

The Premier Punt game of the week for GW9 looks set to revolve around another tactical showdown with the Chelsea Vs. Man Utd fixture already holding down our biggest prize pool – despite the fixture not taking place until Super Sunday.

It is new vs. old as Mourinho heads to Chelsea not much less than a year after his infamous sacking to take on his successor Antonio Conte who has already found himself under pressure and speculation at the Bridge earlier this month was suggesting his tenure is already far from secured.

Both teams head in to this game in decent form and although Manchester United might have had a midweek European fixture, the attacking performance (particularly of Paul Pogba) might mean that having played in the week will actually work in their favour.

The question is who to choose in your pick 6 team if you are entering our big fantasy football pick 6 game?

TOP 6 PICKS – CHELSEA VS. MAN UTD

The top scorers from the Liverpool game last week were of course the defenders and with no defenders or goalkeepers having star player status you could have your pick of any. It’s a tough call though as a single goal can wipe out a load of your points so what is the likelihood of another 0-0 draw? Not to mention it feels a bit boring choosing a team full of defenders!

Two of the last six games between these two in the Premier League have resulted in 0-0 draws and only one of those fixtures has enjoyed more than two goals! There have been two red cards in that time both times going to the away side in the fixture.

If we look at the last 6 games when Chelsea have played United at home there have actually been no goalless draws and just 2 clean sheets – both coming for Chelsea.

It’s a difficult pick 6 for this game but it does look like the game will revolve around defence and midfield. That being said, Diego Costa is the real in form attacking player in this fixture and will probably make most teams – he has the best chance of breaking down a resolute United side. At the back, Luke Shaw might want to be avoided as Mourinho may well start with the same back four that played Liverpool.

It is hard to predict but perhaps a mix of Chelsea and United defenders mixed with one or two attacking players is the way to go in this game. With home advantage to Chelsea and the extra preparation time you would have to be swayed towards the Blues in this game and Marcos Alonso is a defender who has really impressed in recent games. He bombs forward and supports the attack and it might need a player of his type to provide the width in a game that could be tight.

Whoever you decide to pick in this game, there are a range of prize pots and challenges to choose from including a £500 progressive pot that is not to be missed – so what are you waiting for – play our daily fantasy football here.

WHY DAILY FANTASY SPORTS ARE TAKING OVER THE WORLD

The advent of daily fantasy sports (DFS) games is something that has taken the United States by storm. The UK and Europe are fast catching on to this growing sports betting trend and Premier Punt are leading the way with the most exciting daily fantasy football gaming platform on the market today.

So what is it about daily fantasy sports that are so enticing to football fans?

Anyone who has played fantasy football knows how exciting the format can be… but the problem is that 8 or 9 weeks down the line when you are languishing in mid table or worse it is easy to lose interest in the competition. Unless you are a hardcore fantasy football player you might find yourself leaving your team to fester in a pit of dead fantasy football teams. If you are lucky enough to be riding high in your league then as much as it might be nice to batter your mates in to foundations of your league, the competitive nature of your league is going to be poor – and where’s the fun in that?

 

THE RISE OF DAILY FANTASY SPORTS

Whilst we focus on fantasy football, the rise of daily fantasy sports as an industry is partly thanks to this competitive flaw in the season long games. No matter what the sport, the problems of players losing interest is evident across all sports.

Daily and even weekly fantasy sports formats fix this problem by having short and snappy games with almost instant gratification. The competition resets every time a new daily or weekly game starts and everyone loves instant rewards – and what’s better than instant cash payouts?!

Whether you are taking on your mates or taking on strangers in weekly and daily mini-leagues, you will never lose interest in the daily and weekly games.

 

PICK 6 FANTASY FOOTBALL GAMES

The Premier Punt Pick Six games make the daily games quicker and easier to play than ever before. The ability to choose 6 players from the two competing teams with no budget restrictions means that choosing a team couldn’t be simpler. With no need to worry about transfer prices you simply have to choose the 6 players that you think will be the best performers on the day.

Take the Man Utd Vs. Leicester fixture that takes place during game week 6 for example. You could take a team of the likes of Ibrahimovic, Slimani, Pogba, David De Gea, Drinkwater and Valencia without even giving a second thought as to their values. A pot that stands at over £425 means the rewards are substantial if you are to win or place in the top 10.

With single games for every fixture in the Premier League there are plenty of opportunities to win and with entry fees starting at just £2 you could enter as many teams as you like for relatively small stakes.

With game week 6 ready to kick off in a matter of hours why not get yourself involved in the growing trend of daily and weekly fantasy sports betting today?
