In the ever-expanding world of online gambling, GameBlazers is standing out by attempting to transform daily fantasy sports (DFS). The platform, which currently offers NFL contests, is taking a gamified approach to fantasy sports, allowing participants to receive packs of items – football players – with multipliers, and to use these items to form a roster of players within the salary cap.
Facing competition from established DFS platforms like DraftKings and FanDuel, as well as online sportsbooks and casinos, GameBlazers is trying to shake things up. Rourke Struthers, the CEO of GameBlazers, believes that the DFS industry is skewed towards gambling, and wants to bring new ideas and innovation to the fantasy side of the industry.
The platform aims to offer more decision-making opportunities and skill showcasing for its players while providing a diverse user experience through the use of item packs with varied multipliers. Also, the game mechanics and fantasy management options are designed to keep players in control and engaged.
Furthermore, GameBlazers is looking to stand out by incorporating the concept of ownership and decision-making, setting it apart from similar platforms. It’s also working on integrating partnerships, adding items to its digital store, and potentially introducing real-life items. The most significant upcoming feature is a native mobile app, set to be launched next year.
However, GameBlazers faces challenges such as competing with the deeply ingrained sports betting industry and standing out in crowded markets. Nevertheless, the company is optimistic about its prospects and is focused on providing a unique, compelling user experience for all kinds of fantasy sports enthusiasts.
