Over the years gaming has evolved from a laid back Sunday activity into a much more innovative space. Gaming companies have strived hard to incorporate more real life events into gaming to entice users and get them on the gaming cycle. One such innovative concept is fantasy gaming in the realms of cricket, football and baseball. In India, IPL fantasy game has superb demand, cricket being the sport that this nation worships. Gaming giants have revolutionized the concept of fantasy gaming and brought together the 2 things that we love – cricket and gaming.

While the online version of the game is available throughout the year, its peak season is during major cricketing tournaments like the IPL or the Champions Trophy. This is the season that gaming companies can cash on since the players are all in top form and people are overjoyed to experience all the action within close quarters. IPL fantasy game has a lot of takers online during the season and the demand for more sites hosting such games is crazy. The official cricket board itself has a virtual team set up for people who are interested in participating in the online game.

The concept of fantasy cricket is very simple but many layers and jazz is added to the regular rules to make it more interesting. Different sites will have their own versions of the game and there are plenty of options to choose from! The basic format of the games involves the user as the manager of the team who is given a certain amount as credit to buy a team. Now the manager has to choose the fantasy IPL league team from the assortment of players that they can get with the initial credit. The manager then has to wait for the actual game to begin and the team score on the leaderboard will be determined by the performance of the on field player.

Since the team score depends on the player’s actual performance, it is important that the managers know which players are in form and select them in the team. For this he has to have massive knowledge of the game and should follow cricket in and out. Another very popular concept is fantasy IPL league which are basically league matches that are either public or private. Anyone and everyone can participate in public league matches that are either hosted by the site or an individual whereas private leagues are the ones that require you to get an invitation from the owner of the league.

Being a huge hit among the online cricket community, fantasy cricket games have managed to hook on the not-so-much-into-cricket crowd as well. It offers a grand challenge and experience to users who are fans of the game. While the basic rules remain the same, different sites have different terms and rewards. This digital version of fantasy IPL league that debuted 2 years ago saw 550,000 participants from across the globe and many more who are now regulars. This year however major players added many features including social networking and mobile optimization for ease of access and the response has been nothing short of breathtaking.
