On top of the £10,000 weekly jackpot (and myriad other prizes) on offer in the free-to-play Fantasy5 game, we are delighted to announce that there’ll be £100 a month up for grabs to the top player in the dedicated Fantasy Football Scout mini-league.
Mini-leagues are a new feature of Fantasy5 this season, allowing you to compete amongst friends and track each other’s predictions over time.
Fantasy5 are also giving away £1,000 across 10 randomly chosen mini-leagues, so set yours up today to be in with a chance of being picked (mini-leagues must have a minimum of five entrants to be eligible).

HOW TO PLAY FANTASY5
The rules are simple: enter a team by picking one player from each of the five nominated fixtures each Gameweek and, if they all exceed their ‘points target’ for that match, you’ll be taking home all – or at the very least a share – of the £10k jackpot.
There is no budget in Fantasy5 – if you wanted a team packed full of the big names, then you’re free to do so.
Naturally, the so-called “better” players will have a higher points target and Fantasy5‘s projections are a good indicator as to who is expected to perform well on any given matchday.
For example, on the opening weekend, Mohamed Salah will have to score in excess of 12.5 points in Liverpool’s clash with Norwich if the Egyptian is to help you on the way to the jackpot.
By contrast, the Canaries’ Lukas Rupp only has a points target of 4.5 to better.
Fantasy5 are the fastest media outlet for live Fantasy points, displaying all player points from the five games in question as well as the live score and time – as shown in the above image.
The competition is limited to one entry per person per round and selections must be submitted before kick-off of the first eligible match.
If two or more entrants correctly select five players who all score more than their points target, then the prize pot is split among all winners.
