How Fantasy Games Are Implemented in Software Platforms

Online fantasy games and sports are some of the fastest-growing trends among bettors and gamblers who enjoy watching different activities such as football, basketball, hockey, and so forth.

Especially since the recent worldwide lockdown, betting fans all over the world haven’t had many matches to place their bets on. It’s no wonder this genre of gambling is growing so rapidly. So how are software platforms implementing fantasy games into their framework and how do they offer their services to online betting enthusiasts? Let’s find out.

The Basic Framework

The basic gist of things is quite simple. Players choose from a variety of real-world players and enlist them into a fictional team of their dreams.

Thing is, they have the ability to choose even players who have retired long ago but are still shown as they were in their prime. Their stats are calculated based on their overall performance.

As for players who are still currently in the leagues, their performance is calculated in a similar manner, and their recent injuries and other factors are also taken into account. As such, the software can calculate the odds of one fantasy team versus another in a simulated match.

Think about it the same way you would think about Electronic Arts’ FIFA or Madden. Except this time there’s an algorithm that takes care of business instead of two players going head to head using controllers and gaming wits.

The Implementation of AI

Artificial intelligence is one of the best things to have ever emerged in the technology scene. Through its implementation, software platforms can determine the outcome of a match and gather data in real time to place the odds in a realistic manner without the help of a real human.

Simply put, an advanced algorithm gathers the data, goes through the process of data processing to translate it into readable bits by any program, and then websites that use software platforms can easily interpret all the clusters of data to determine a realistic outcome. In this sense, fantasy games, despite being totally in the virtual realm, can imitate real life to an outstanding degree.

The Legal Issue

Many potential bettors worldwide have shown an interest in fantasy games but have been reluctant to get into the game simply out of fear of the law.

While laws may differ from country to country, the general consensus is that betting on fantasy sports is a game of skill rather than a game of chance. Although, there are a few things to remember: bettors aren’t allowed to place their bets on a single game or on a single player.

Also, as far as the USA is concerned, fantasy sports are banned in five states:

  • Arizona
  • Iowa
  • Louisiana
  • Montana
  • Washington

As for other countries, you’ll have to check your local laws to see how much you’re affected. Generally speaking, if there’s a betting website with the option of fantasy games, then it’s safe.
