The DFS Revolution Cannot Be Stopped: Here Comes Fantasy Sumo Wrestling
So we told you earlier in the week that FanDuel and DraftKings shutting down in New York probably wasn't a bad thing. Players are still clamoring to get into the DFS space, trying to find a brand new niche. Sure, football is by far the most popular, but there are loads of players that prefer daily fantasy baseball or basketball. DFS golf is a major gold mine right now. Pat Mayo tells you about it in this space each and every week. We've been trying to find the perfect fantasy professional wrestling DFS game for about five years now. There's one particular sport that we hadn't previously thought about yet and that upsets us.
This is the million dollar idea that has escaped us forever. We watch "Shark Tank" every week trying to figure out the right product to pitch to Mr. Wonderful. How could we be so stupid to miss this? All you have to do is pick a team of six Rikishis (no not Rikishi, but the Japanese word for wrestler) and you're done. Participate in all of the normal types of DFS games (Head To Head, Tournaments, 50-50s etc) for actual, real money.
“Sumo is a multi-million dollar industry and a sport loved by many in Japan and the United States,” said Hiro Watanabe, CEO of Sports Perfecta. “We are thrilled to be at the forefront of fantasy game platforms offering a unique experience for fantasy games enthusiasts who enjoy a variety of sports. Daily Fantasy Sumo is available on FanXT.com website and is based on the Grand Sumo Tournament in Japan.”
Dammit do we hope to hell that New York State doesn't get wind of this. They just regulated MMA in the state, so now it's time to keep DFS Sumo Wrestling legal. How else am I supposed to track my favorites like Hakuho, Goeido, and Yokozuna?
Daily Fantasy Sumo is now available online at www.fanxt.com/dailyfantasy and will eventually be available as an iOS and Android smartphone app.
