REVIEW FANTEAM

FanTeam Review from Our Team

FanTeam is a platform for those who love fantasy games and fantasy sports betting in particular, as well as betting on football and top tennis. There are several types of tournaments in the fantasy section with different entry fees. You can find a tournament with a good prize pool even with modest financial means.

The FanTeam sportsbook section surprises with competitive odds for football. FanTeam offers the widest range of betting options with about 40 different level championships. In tennis, FanTeam offers only major competitions (mainly the Grand Slam and Masters tournaments under the auspices of ATP and WTA). The other sports periodically appear and disappear from the list without a clear timetable.

In the UK, online bookmakers are banned for those under 18 years old. Remember about responsible gambling, play responsibly on safe sites registered by the UK Gambling Commission.

FanTeam Free Bets, Offers & Promotions

FanTeam rarely offers promotions for the users. The daily fantasy sports platform is already popular and the FanTeam sportsbook is not a priority for the company, so it is not full of welcome bonus offers, free bets, and other promotions. The only sports betting bonus available right now is the welcome offer for new customers.

100% bonus up to £20

FanTeam welcomes all new customers with a 100% deposit bonus on their first deposit up to £20. The rules for receiving this bonus offer and using it are as follows:

  • Make sure that the welcome bonus offer has been activated on the deposit page.
  • Make your first deposit; the qualifying deposit must be £10 or more.

  • Use the welcome bonus within 90 days (otherwise it will be canceled).
  • The minimum wagering requirements are x6. Your bonus needs to be wagered by turning over your initial deposit amount six times making bets on events with minimum odds of 1/1 (2.00) on the Sportsbook and Players Matchups.

Given that the minimum bonus amount is £10, anyone can get it. If new customers are not satisfied with the minimum wagering requirements, they can reject the welcome bonus on the deposit page.

FanTeam Odds

The FanTeam sportsbook section of the fantasy-oriented site is capable of surprising customers who are used to an average service. But what about the odds? How great are appetites of the small betting site compared to the big bookmakers?

Let's calculate the margin for a big football event: Manchester United vs Liverpool (English Premier League, August 22, 2022):

As you can see, FanTeam's odds for top matches, like English Premier League or UEFA Champions League games, are very competitive. In this respect, the small bookmaker outperforms not only the mid-tier actors, but also the big companies.

Betting tax varies from market to market, and sometimes significantly. Take the same English Premier League match Manchester United vs Liverpool. How much is the margin on the total over/under 2.5?

FanTeam's share of one of the most popular football markets is also quite modest, both overall and in comparison with the biggest companies.

The odds for matches of less major championships are also decent. On MLS, one of the most popular leagues after the European top five, the margin can be called below average. The same policy is applied to the second divisions of the strongest football countries. However, the margin is significantly increasing in the tier 3 leagues.

In other sports, even the most popular ones, it's difficult for FanTeam to compete with more reputable bookmakers. For example, consider such a sport as tennis: the margins on the Pablo Carreno Busta vs Miomir Kecmanovic tennis match at ATP Cincinnati on 16/08/22:

Conclusion: FanTeam can be recommended for users who want to bet on top football, for example on English Premier League, La Liga, or UEFA Champions League. The odds offered by this bookmaker can be called the best in the country when it comes to the highest level championships. For unpopular events the site offers typical odds, from medium to high, and in other sports FanTeam is inferior to big competitors.

What to Know About FanTeam

FanTeam is one of the largest websites of its kind in the world. The gaming platform from Scout, the provider, allows to create daily fantasy sports games with different conditions and of different duration.


A few years ago, the FanTeam sportsbook appeared on the website and the sports betting section came into the view of Match.Center experts. Read on in this FanTeam review how the brand has been developing and what it has to offer now.

FanTeam History

Information about the company is hard to find. Everything is fine legally, but we were not able to trace the full life path of this bookmaker. The customer service has not told us any interesting stories.

The service dates back to 2013, although the site opened on the current domain in 2015. FanTeam began operations under the Maltese licence MGA/B2C/368/2017. The company now holds a UK licence number 39669, which gives it the right to run fantasy sports games and accept sports bets in the United Kingdom.

Key Features of FanTeam Betting

Football is a key sphere in the FanTeam sportsbook. The number of bets is on par with an average betting site, however, most punters will be satisfied, not to mention the excellent odds for top matches.

Match.Center specialises on analysing betting sites, but we can't overlook the fantasy games that form the backbone of FanTeam.

In the Games section, customers play and compete for the prize pool. There are three sub-sections:

  • Official tournaments. These are competitions organised by FanTeam. They can be of two types: Daily (selecting players for fantasy teams, fantasy football for instance, from a single match or from a group stage of a tournament) and Season-long (you form a team and earn points as long as the season of a certain tournament is running). There may be different money prize pools with different entry fees for the same tournament: The higher the fees, the greater the potential winnings.
  • Draft'n'go. Small lobbies of 2-12 players that form fantasy teams for specific matches, tournaments or groups of tournaments.
  • User created. Fantasy sports competitions of any format and difficulty, invented by the players.

There are several other interesting sections in the gaming section:

  • New Lobby. A more structured categorization of tournaments (as opposed to the chaotic main section). Here you can not only play and take part in created competitions, but also to create your own.
  • Matchups. It's an interesting variation of the fantasy sports. FanTeam offers several pairs of players, fantasy football is a priority, e.g. Haaland - Salah and so on. A customer picks from three to ten players from the offered pairs (irrespective of the cost of the players, in contrast to the regular fantasy sports). The more players the customer select for his "accumulator ", the higher the multiplier of his winnings. All players must get more fantasy points in their "duels" in order for such a combination to win.
  • Star Pick. Another no-prize game, where a customer have to pick the best player of the game day or the game week of a certain tournament.
  • Pick'em'Jackpot. A drawing with a minimum entry fee, where you are asked to predict the results of 13 real matches from a given list. You can choose more than one outcome for safety purposes, even all three of 1X2, but then the entry fee is increased.

FanTeam Sports and Markets

The range of markets in the FanTeam sportsbook section is very uneven. Sports can be divided into two categories: regular and periodical. The principle of this division is suggested by the bookmaker itself by hiding the disciplines on which no bets are offered. This means that there are two or three disciplines in the list regularly, and the others are added periodically.

The regular sports in the FanTeam sportsbook are football, tennis and baseball.

⚽Football

Let's start with football. There are around 40 tournaments in total and over 200 events regularly:

  • Top tier. First and second divisions of England, Spain, Italy, Germany, France. For some countries there are bets on cup tournaments. From 150 to 250 markers per match.
  • International cups. All important European and Asian Champions' League tournaments are covered. From 100 to 150 markets.
  • All popular tier-2 leagues. Championships of Portugal, Netherlands, Denmark, Mexico, Brazil. Around 150 betting options.
  • Few exotics. Estonia, Serbia, China and few other leagues. 100-150 markers per match.

🎾Tennis

The choice of betting events for tennis teaches good taste. FanTeam pays attention only to the best events. Here you will find the Grand Slam tournaments, Masters singles and some other best tennis competition. No Challengers or ITF. In pre-match there are usually up to 20 bets, which is less than in live (up to 60).

⚾Baseball

The last regular discipline is baseball. More specifically, this is American MLB. Baseball often disappears from the range of markets, but during the season there are bets on at least half of the game day matches.

  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Golf
  • Hockey
  • Esports (CS:GO, Dota 2, LoL)
  • American football
  • Handball
  • UFC
  • Futsal
  • Bandy

FanTeam Live Betting

The selection of events in pre-match is limited, but the Live section narrows the opportunities of players even more. Let's look at three major sports - what gets taken from pre-match to live and how many markets can you expect to see?
  • Football. You can find here most first divisions, but second divisions like Brazil's Serie B and Spain's Segunda are no longer to be found. About 50 markets, regardless of the popularity of the event.
  • Tennis. ATP and WTA tournaments. From 40 to 60 bets.
  • Other sports. Not seen in live.

FanTeam seems to be shy of the Live section, as it's not even easy to find it. The selection of live markets is accessed via the Filter list which mostly features pre-match events. In addition, in some sections of the sportsbook the link to the Live section is not visible.

There is a separate Live Results section which is not related to live bets. Here you can place a pre-match bet. Live scoring for fantasy games is monitored there: who and how much was awarded for goal, goal pass, shots on target, how much was taken away for a yellow and red card, etc.

Speaking of statistics, let us note that the Live section only tracks scoring on goals and sets, but not additional statistics. You can do without statistics on shots on target in a football match, but the score in a tennis game is an important information. Is it 30:30 or 40:15? You'll have to look for the scoring elsewhere.

Of course, if you take live betting as an addition to the fantasy sports, you don't want to be too picky. There is live, odds change, bets are accepted. By the way, the selection of markets for top matches is not bad at all. But as a standalone phenomenon the FanTeam's Live section does not stand up to criticism.

Streaming on FanTeam

You won't find a single sports stream on the FanTeam site. Given the nature of the platform, this is not surprising. FanTeam is not some betting giant which can afford to buy the rights to live stream competitions in various sports. Nor is it a specialised betting site for horse and greyhounds racing in the UK and Ireland.

On the whole, streaming would come in handy even for the fantasy sports betting. Dry statistics captures trends, but not trend turnarounds, which can be discerned by watching and analysing the match.

FanTeam App

FanTeam mobile software is only available for iOS devices. Holders of Android devices can only use the mobile version of the site for the time being.

The app has almost all the features of the mobile version. The organisation of the main playing area is almost identical. The main difference is the push-button menu at the bottom of the screen which can be used to navigate to different sections and other menus:

  • Sportsbook. The home page of the betting section.
  • Live Results. Here you can follow the scoring of the match and the fantasy scores, which are counted in the game tournaments. You can also place pre-match bets.
  • Games. The main section with several categories of fantasy tournaments and games.
  • My Entries. Here you can see your betting history, as well as future, ongoing and completed tournaments, in which you are taking part or have taken part.
  • Profile. Here you can find links to deposit and withdrawal boxes, application settings and support service contacts.

The design and interface of the app is very minimalistic, which makes it quick to load and run. The text is easy to read on any screen size.

Sign Up with FanTeam

Click on the yellow Register button to create your account. In the full and mobile site versions it is located in the top right corner. In the mobile app the window with the registration button will appear after launching.

Registration is a one-step process, so it is relatively quick. You will need to enter the following details:

  • Country (chosen automatically)
  • Username (used also for login in fantasy games)
  • Password
  • Email address
  • First and last name (as given in your ID)
  • Info about your place of residence: city, street, house number, postcode
  • Phone number
  • Date of Birth
  • Account currency: GBP or EUR

After completing registration you need to activate your account. You can do it in two ways: enter the code you received via SMS or click on the Confirm Email button in your e-mail.

Once your account has been activated, a button will appear to go to the verification page. You can skip this step and come back to it later, but without verification you will not be able to play any games according to the law. For verification you need to upload scans or photos of two documents:

  • Proof of identity (one document to choose from): passport, VISA-card with a photo of you, driver's licence or national ID card.
  • Proof of address (one of your choice): utility bill you have received stating your address, letter from your bank, or a bank statement.

UK residents can upload one document to prove your identity and address. This is a valid driver's licence or provisional licence.

Once uploaded, click the Submit Documents button and wait for them to be checked.

How to Bet at FanTeam

To place a bet at FanTeam you should do the following:

  • Go to the Sportsbook. In the full site version, the link to this section will be at the top. In the mobile site version and the app, open the side menu with the button in the top left corner and select Sportsbook there.
  • Find the event you are interested in. Use the Filter menu to select the sport and tournament.

  • Select one or more outcomes by clicking on the boxes with odds.
  • In the bet slip select the bet type if you have added more than one outcome.
  • Enter the amount in the bet slip and confirm the bet.

How to Edit a Bet at FanTeam

FanTeam does not support the option of bet editing. Once a bet has been accepted, no other outcomes can be added or the bet amount changed. Be sure to check the information on the bet slip before confirming a bet.

How to Close a Bet at FanTeam

This is not possible. If you placed a bet, you have to wait until it is settled. It is also not possible to edit selections in the fantasy games section. Be careful.

FanTeam Security

FanTeam is licensed by the national regulator UK Gambling Commission (No. 39669), which declares that it meets strict legal requirements for security and technical quality of the product and provides responsible gambling.

Scout Gaming Group, a fantasy sports provider, has proven to be a reliable partner for well-known betting brands like Bet365 and Betsson. FanTeam also works with leading payment systems which themselves set the standard for quality in the financial industry, so you don't have to worry about the security of your deposits and withdrawals.

Customer Support Section at FanTeam

Getting in touch with support is very easy. There is a live chat button on the main page which, according to the operator, is available 24/7. One or two operators handle the live chat at a time. We made five requests at different time and four of them were answered immediately. One time no operator was available, but we received a suggestion to send a question and get an answer by email. The quality of the service is decent: an operator can illustrate the answer with a screenshot, but sometimes they answer complicated questions in a vague manner.

Another big advantage is that you do not need to enter any information in the live chat or even register. FanTeam welcomes all site visitors.

Note that the path to the live chat from the sportsbook section is a little longer. First you need to open the side menu with the button in the top right corner and click on Support. There will be a chat button on the FAQ and rules page.

If you have extra time, you can email to [email protected] You will get an answer quickly, but of course it will take longer than via live chat.

Tips and Tricks for Betting at FanTeam

The FanTeam sportsbook section is really special and may surprise users of other bookmakers. What should you know about betting on this betting site?

  • Unpredictable betting line. The regular list of betting markets is offered only for football and tennis. You can't know in advance bets on what matches will be available. For example, the bets on MLB baseball league may be presented hours before the start of the game day. How many matches will be available for betting is also difficult to say. There is no clear timetable for the betting markets to be offered, and the support service will not tell you. Unfortunately, you will have to monitor the site yourself to find out what bets are available.
  • There may be more bets in live, than in pre-match. This is not uncommon practice among bookmakers. For instance, before a tennis match starts, you can only bet on the outcome of the first set. As soon as it starts, bets on the outcome of the second and third set open.
  • Check out the Live Results section. First of all, this is necessary for fans of fantasy games. In this section you will find some kind of live text feed, in which some live fantasy statistics are recorded. Did the goalkeeper make a save? How many goals did the striker score? How many aces did the tennis players have? All these are calculated in the Live Results. There you can also place a bet, if the match has not started yet.
  • Check out the blog. There announcements of some fantasy tournaments and summaries of the best picks are published.

FanTeam Summary

In our FanTeam review we can say that the site offers one of the most advanced fantasy sections and fantasy betting, with several types of games and the opportunity to create your own lobbies to play and compete for prizes against one team of opponents or more.

The range of markets of the bookmaker section is very limited. On a regular basis there are bets on around 20 football leagues, a couple of top tennis tournaments and MLB.

Within its field, the service is competitive. The number of markets in pre-match can be called mediocre (no more than 200 for the top matches), the range of options in live (about 50 for most events) deserves higher marks. Low margins for top football give you some of the best odds of any bookmaker in the UK.

If you're a fan of fantasy sports betting and in real sports you are only interested in top football and tennis, FanTeam is an ideal variant. If you are interested in another sport or a more diverse selection of sports with a regular list of markets you'll have to go to another bookmaker.
