NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PickChamps, a U.S. Daily Fantasy Sports company, today becomes the first Daily Fantasy Sports operator to feature 'In-Play' capability to its 'Live-Pick' contests allowing fans to make player prop 'picks' while NFL and NBA games are in progress.  

'Live-Pick' is a ground-breaking feature in the evolution of Daily Fantasy Sports where fans can make 'picks' based on the live action taking place on the field or court.  This added level of depth gives a completely new dimension to the traditionally passive Daily Fantasy Sports gameplay experience:

  • Fans can make prop picks on any player they choose at any point during the game.
  • Fans are no longer limited to making player picks only before games start.
  • Currently available for both NFL and NBA single and multi-sport contests.

Leighton Webb, CEO of PickChamps, said: "The introduction of game-changing features such as 'Live-Pick' is crucial in our strategy to disrupt the Daily Fantasy Sports industry.

"When launching PickChamps we knew that it was essential not to be a 'me-too' product and differentiate ourselves from the many other providers in the marketplace. Not only is our gameplay completely different – by allowing fans to make prop picks based on the real-life performance of athletes – but we are introducing major innovations such as 'in-play' capability that gives fans deeper engagement with players and teams they follow.  'Live-Pick' will further engage fans while games in progress.  Daily Fantasy Sports is no longer a passive experience but a truly active, immersive one."

Unlike any other DFS format, PickChamps allows players to completely tailor their Picks and predict specific athlete performances against a huge range of real-game statistics, as well making head-to-head match-ups between athletes.

PickChamps has no restrictive salary caps or pre-determined draft rules, you're free to build strategies around the athletes you know best. Players aim to score as many points as possible, climb the leaderboard and win cash. With one of the most aggressive prize structures available in DFS, there are more chances to win than ever before.

PickChamps, which launched this year, has amassed a strong userbase in just a few months running NFL and NBA contests. Built around a completely new gameplay concept, PickChamps is a revolutionary way for fans to put their sports knowledge to the test on gameday and win real cash prizes.

PickChamps is available on desktop and mobile app for both Apple and Android.
