AlphaStreak Brings a New Level of Interactivity to DFS with In Game Fantasy. Users can now control their fate after the game begins with roster swaps and power multipliers while games are live.

In Game Daily Fantasy has changed the way sports fans can interact with there favorite sports. With Traditional DFS you pick your players ahead of time and once the game starts you simply just sit back and watch.

In Game is a little different. You start by selecting players for your starting lineup. Once the games start, all but one of these players will be available to your opponents to see. One player is declared a covered player and does not display until the contest completes. As the game goes, each user has the option of buying players to swap into their starting lineup for an additional fee, which gets added to the prize pool. When swapping in a player from the bench, you must drop a player from your starting lineup. Additionally, each user is given a power multiplier that they can apply to an individual player to receive double points for a set period of time, usually 5-10 minutes.

"The DFS industry been copying the recently outlawed online poker industry at every turn, however, they seem to have missed the mark in one key area-interactivity. You set your lineup and you sit and watch it. A far-cry from the heart pumping move of pushing a competitor all-in with a 2,7 in your hand." states Customer Experience Manager Mark Johnson. "We wanted to introduce this missing piece of excitement. With In-Game you get the be the coach of your lineup. You get to decide who plays and who rides the bench. And you get to win."

"The main difficulty we encountered was getting our stat updates quick enough so that each players point total only reflected points scored while that player was in a starting lineup position. Through cooperation with our data provider and reduction of our own network latency, we've brought scoring live updating with the real life gameplay-which has benefited all our our contests offerings," explains CTO Stephane Perez.

This game type has already been taken off on the AlphaStreak network with the NBA and NHL playoffs, however they think it's applications are even better suited for the upcoming Football season. Nothing is more frustrating in football than losing a starter to an early game injury or just a running back not able to breach the defensive line. Now you're not out of the game, you simply buy a player who's hot and you can get right back into the competition.

AlphaStreak Develops First Ever March Madness DFS Bracketology Tournament Contest
A DFS twist on everyone's favorite way to participate in March Madness which, unlike the traditional team bracket approach, is legal to participate in paid contests and tournaments.

MONTREAL, April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - This year for March Madness, sports fans could win far more in the tournament. With AlphaStreak's new game type, players were finally able to put money on their picks and put their sports knowledge to the test.

In years past, sports fans could fill out free brackets into large contests with prizes going to the top couple of lineups or the nearly impossible perfect bracket - which odds are something like 1 in 9.2 quintillion. AlphaStreak decided that players deserve an option where they can be more competitive, and more importantly, not knocked out of the running before the sweet sixteen.

This contest type, only available on AlphaStreak's licensee sites, features components of classic DFS basketball and of traditional bracketology. You select a roster of 9 players in the first round of the tournament, and they accumulate fantasy points game by game as their team advances. The skill comes in at both the team and player level, as even the highest scoring player is not much value if his team gets knocked out in the first round. By contrast, a player whose team advances to the final will get 6 games worth of fantasy points contributing to their total.

"We think this will be well-received by the sports community. There have been a long-time demand for sport's fans to be able to put money on their picks. We've seen how Daily Fantasy Sports have exploded out of season long fantasy and we expect a similar adoption curve with DFS bracketology," says Customer Experience Manager Mark Johnson.

The value to players doesn't stop at just the March Madness Tournament. Johnson said this game type is applicable to much more.

"One of our priorities in this project was making a game type that was generalizable - rather than hard coding for the March Madness tournament, we developed it so it could be applied to any other sport or playoff setting," explains Johnson. "This allows players to get comfortable with bracket-style DFS throughout the year rather than waiting around until next March to get another crack at it."

"Sports fans have asked and we have listened. Every year when March rolls around, the bracket is the main attraction. However, outside of office pools and friendly gatherings, it's been illegal to put money on your picks. That all changes this March for our licensees," states Johnson.

So there you have it. Call it crazy, call it madness, AlphaStreak just calls it NCAA basketball playoffs - the new standard for bracketology.

The daily fantasy format for the everyday sports fan. Alphastreak is opening back up the DFS industry with a simple proposition style game type where the recreational user can compete with the professionals.

March 28th, 2018 (Montreal, Canada) - AlphaStreak Launches Easy Pick. The daily fantasy format for the everyday sports fan. Alphastreak is opening back up the DFS industry with a simple proposition style game type where the recreational user can compete with the professionals.

The stats are undeniable. While proving it's merit as a game of skill, traditional daily fantasy has also proven that there is little opportunity to win on the big sites without conducting hours of research and keeping up with all the minute by minute announcements leading up to game-time.

This is no longer the case with Easy Pick. Easy Pick gives the users a card of picks where they simply need to make their selections between two roughly equivalent players. Go through your card, choose Steph Curry over James Harden, Lebron James over Kevin Durant, etc. And it's as easy as that. No long hours spent researching value picks or waiting for last minute injury announcements.

"We've noticed the key complaint in the Daily Fantasy industry is the difficulty of the everyday sports fan to compete and win; the industry is filled with professionals who win the vast majority of larger tournaments." Explains Customer Experience manager Mark Johnson. "Our solution to this is a simpler game type where a user can simply choose for example 'Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady', rather than conduct hours of research every team, matchup, and player."

With Easy Pick the field has been leveled and there's no longer sharks and fish out there. Everyone stands to get into the game and possibly win big on their favorite teams. Only available on the AlphaStreak network.

AlphaStreak's licensees were the main attraction on February 4th, as the premier Daily Fantasy providers to offer contest for Super Bowl LII.

February 14th, 2018 (Montreal, Canada) - AlphaStreak creates a groundbreaking new form of Daily Fantasy sports. which allows Daily Fantasy operators to offer legal contests on single events, such as the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Finals, and more.

Daily Fantasy contests require two events or more to be considered legal under UIGEA codes. Prior to now, this limitation has left operators unable to offer contests on the biggest events in sports. However, Alpha Streak has taken an out of-the-box approach - two events does not mean two events in the same sport.

Thus spawned AlphaStreak's Patented Cross Sport fantasy. By combining single events of two different sports, Daily Fantasy providers can meet the needs of their players when they are needed the most.

"We feel with this product we have solved an intrinsic flaw in the industry" says Mark Johnson, Customer Experience Manager at AlphaStreak. "Up until now, the biggest days in sports have left daily fantasy providers nowhere to be found."

Cross Sport contests play as so - You pick 6 players from the event or events in the primary sport and 3 players from the secondary sport's events. These players all score normally with the total combined score determining the standings among contest participants. In the Super Bowl edition, players selected a Quarterback, 2 Wide Receivers, 2 Running Backs, and a Tight End from NFL as well as a Guard, a Forward, and a Center in NBA.

"The largest hurdle in the project was equating scoring across sports so there was a level playing field across sports - an NFL Quarterback and an NBA Guard had the potential to score the same number of points" explained CTO Stephane Perez. "It's great to see such a successful rollout after months of development."

"This provides huge value to our Licensees. On February 4th, they cornered the market as the only sites to play Daily Fantasy Football. Whenever a sport reaches their Championship game, our Licensee's are the only place to play." added Johnson.

The Cross Sport action doesn't stop here at the SuperBowl. AlphaStreak's Licensees will use this contests type regularly to offer contests that the competition just can't match. These opportunities include the NBA All-Star Game, the NCAA Basketball Championships, and the NBA Finals. While other sites may serve these games, they do so in a multiple day setting or even a week setting. AlphaStreak's licensees however offer it in the standard Daily Fantasy One-Day setting that players know and love.

"Our goals are to provide the end users with products to meet their wants and needs out of the industry. This product brings us one step closer to achieving that" says Mark Johnson.
