Thrive Fantasy - Legal website in the U.S.
For more than a decade, DraftKings and Fanduel have dominated the Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) market in the U.S. During that time, it has been difficult for any new online DFS operators to enter the market and compete for business against the "BIG TWO!" That is about to change a ThriveFantasy has decided to throw its hat into the ring.
ThriveFantasy is not really new in this space as they have been skirting around the edges of America's DFS market since the company was founded in 2016. It's only now that management believes they have enough momentum to go big.
ThriveFantasy is licensed to operate in all 32 states where online DFS gambling has been legalized. The stylish mobile app and website are accessible with PCs, tablets, and smartphones that are compatible with the Android and iOS (Apple) operating systems.
The Software Platform
The software platform was clearly designed to make sure customers can easily navigate with a minimum of clicks. In fact, everything a DFS player could want or need is easily accessible from the home page. Management has even gone so far as to provide a 1-minute tutorial video at the bottom of the home landing page.
As for the "meat and potatoes" of the site, everything is easy to find right from the same landing page. That includes each day's available DFS markets, banking options, and customer service. At a minimum, they even offer a welcome offer for new customers.
Available DFS Markets
While ThriveFantasy falls a little short of the vast number of DFS markets being offered by the competition each day, they do hit all the most popular sports leagues. From the U.S., that includes the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NASCAR, and PGA Golf. Markets from abroad include international soccer and even cricket.
The site offers two types of contests:
Traditional - select players and compete in featured events, tournaments/Leagues, and head-to-head contests.
Versus - Picking which player will have the best stats between two players (similar to props).
At this point, the availability of eSports competitions really sets ThriveFantasy ahead of the competition. eSports markets cover popular games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, and League of Legends.
Bonuses and Promos
At this time, it does not appear that ThriveFanrasy will be offering much in the form of intermittent bonuses. They do offer a small Welcome Bonus based on the new customer's first real cash deposit.
Banking and Customer Service
ThriveFantasy accepts deposits via MasterCard, VISA, PayPal, and e-check/bank transfer.
Customer service is not available by phone or live chat. However, they do respond to inquiries made via Facebook, Twitter, and email.
Verdict: While ThriveFantasy has a lot of work to do as they go after the competition, they have taken the first step by officially throwing their hat into the ring.
