They assemble their team either through a live online draft or a salary cap structure. Score the most points and they could win a cash prize.

OPEN Sports believes the next wave of fantasy games and revenue will come from weekly and real-time participation gaming. This is the premise of our FOX Sports partnership and the goal of our product development for 2010 as we extend the games we develop for FOX Sports onto the FANTASY Live platform. The market is wide-open for these games, as is the support for the players who will adopt it. Much like the stock market, traders evolved from yearly and monthly trading, to weekly, daily, and hourly trading. Fantasy gaming is already headed in that direction, and FANTASY Live will lead the charge.
