Start utilising your sports knowledge 

'Understanding requires insight. Insight must be anchored.'

1. Investigate the platforms


Click on the tiles below to find out more about platforms that allow you to utilise your knowledge, hunches and research into sports without risking a whole one off stake like traditional betting!

We aim to vet these platforms as much as we can, but please do your own due diligence before putting money in.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to spend a bit of time researching the platforms before jumping in!


Look into their Ts&Cs. Look at the different ways of winning. Which one suits you best?

Be sure to read our individual platform pages that explain how each platform works and their USPs in comparison to the others available. Beware, we can only go so far in checking a companies stability- please do your own due diligence checks on them before putting money in. There is risk involved of losing your money if the platforms cease to run- make sure you know what is covered and what isn't.

2. Start small!


Our main advice would be to start small and learn the platforms. We all started using these platforms by using sign up offers. Use our sign up offers (we are affiliates) to get you going with little or no cost! Using these offers, allows you to start playing for real money, and learn with reduced risk. Just remember, some of these are alternative football betting sites. Your capital is at risk. Player values do get affected positively and negatively by results and performances; but you are still holding your player 'cards' or 'assets' (e.g. Sorare) . On all platforms, if you are playing to win prizes, you are essentially making a bet on the player’s future success. There are some USPs that differ to betting e.g. on Sorare the cards are NFTs (collectibles- you own something digital).

3. Use resources

Once you get to the grips of the basics of these platforms, it is worthwhile spending time checking out the extra content and resources available. Some is free and very useful and others require subscriptions but could very well make the difference. Use our 'Resources' page to find some of the best sources of information that will explain everything very clearly. There is a wealth of sites and videos that will guide you into getting your portfolios going. If you make content to support either platforms, get in touch and we will add it to our lists.
