How to play LIVE Fantasy?

  • LIVE Fantasy contests are located right on the Contest Card of the listed match.
  • You can also click on ‘View all Contest’ and see a separate tab for LIVE Fantasy matches.
  • Let’s understand how LIVE Fantasy works with the example screenshot above.

Understanding the LIVE Fantasy Questions

  • In LIVE Fantasy, you need to hold Units of players you think could end up in the Winning Zone
  • In this screenshot, the Winning Zone is Rank 1 and 2, so you are required to hold Units of players you think would score the most fantasy points and end up on Rank 1 and 2
  • Since this contest requires you to predict Top 2 players, the minimum prize pool, Rs.60,000 will be divided between 2 players [Rs.30,000 each rank]
  • The prize pool is flexible, and it increases as more and more users join

Importance of Units in LIVE Fantasy

  • You are required to Buy Units of every player who you think could end up in Winning Zone (Rank 1 & 2)
  • You can Buy Units using the HPs of your card, or you can Rent a Card (Restricted to only 1 HP at a time)
  • Only a specific number of Units are made available for each Player per match, for example, in this screenshot you can see that max 50 Units per player can be bought
  • 7/50 Sold means 50 Units per player are available for purchase and 7 have already been bought
  • If your player ends up in the Winning Zone, you get winnings based on how many Units were Sold

Buying Units using HPs

  • To Buy Units, select the player, select the number of HPs you want to spend to Buy Units and click on Confirm to purchase it
  • Please note, that every time you spend 1 HP, you also earn 1 XP
  • The number of units that you receive also depends on the actual value of the HP. For example, 1 Common HP of V. Kohli can get you 2 Units but 1 Common HP of A. Patel can get you 1 Units

Understanding Prize Pool Distribution

Let’s understand how prize pool is distributed from this example.

  • Total Prize Pool for the match in this screenshot is Rs.60,000 for predicting Rank 1 & 2 correctly
  • That makes minimum Rs.30,000 prize pool for each rank
  • Max 50 Units are made available for this player
  • If All 50 Units Sold + Player ends up in Winning Zone = Rs. 600 Prize Per Unit [Rs. 30,000 Prize Pool / 50 Units Sold = Rs.600 Prize Per Unit]
  • If Only 7 Units Sold + Player ends up in Winning Zone = Rs. 4285 Prize per unit [Rs. 30,000 Prize Pool / 7 Units Sold = Rs.4285 Prize Per Unit]

LIVE Trading During Match

  • What makes LIVE Fantasy special is that, even if the match goes in live stage and you forget to make a team, you can still participate!
  • In this screenshot, you can see that match is now in live stage, but you can Buy Units of J. Root
  • If you are holding the Units of any player and you think he doesn’t have any chance of ranking in Winning Zone, you can sell it and get Sale Earnings right away

How to Sell Units during Live Match?

  • There are two ways: 1) Instant Sell & 2) Set an Ask
