Just remember, you do need to be a bet365 Sport customer in order to take advantage of this offer. If you are not yet signed up, follow the link above to join up with the latest great value bet365 welcome bonus for new customers.

So now let’s get down to the nitty gritty and learn a lot more about this exciting free-to-play promotion available at bet365 Fantasy.

1.What is A Fantasy Sport?

Let’s start with the basics. A fantasy sport is a game where players pick a team of sporting stars for one of a number of sports.

Each sporting star in the game is assigned a value and your team will have to have a stated number of players. You also have a cap limit. You must then select a full team from the available players that is at or under the cap limit.  

Then, when the players play their games, they earn fantasy points based on their performance. All the individual fantasy points for your players are added together to give you your fantasy team total.

Depending on your team total you will then be placed on a leaderboard and if your team earns enough points, you can win a prize (although some games take place over an entire season).

The Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll game is different. It is played every week of the football season, sometimes twice per week, and each time it is played, you have a chance to win one of over 6,000 prizes.

2. What Team Do I Need To Pick For My Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll Game?

The Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll fantasy game is different to many other fantasy games. Here’s some of the key differences:

  • You only need to select six players for your team.
  • The players you can select from are decided by the fixtures that bet365 have selected for this particular game from those being played this game week.
  • There is no requirement to pick X number of players from any one position for your team. You can select six goalkeepers, six defenders, six midfielders or six strikers. Or mix and match selections from all four positions. The make-up of your team is entirely up to you.
  • The only rules on team selections are: Your team must not go over the stated Cap Limit for that game (which is usually around the £60m to £70m mark) and you cannot pick more than three players from any one team.
  • You must select a captain. He will score double points for your team.
  • You also must select a vice captain. He will replace your captain in scoring double points for your team if your captain selection does not start his game.
  • To ensure fairness, there is a ‘safety net’ rule in place which means if a team has a player that is not selected to start in their game, then they will be replaced with a player from the same team and position and of the same or next lowest value.
  • You can enter a maximum of three teams into each Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll Fantasy Football game

Do I Need to Be A Fantasy Football Expert?

Now, you may think you need to know lots about Fantasy Football to play the game effectively. While that will help you if you want to pick your own teams, you don’t have to be a fantasy expert to play and stand a chance of winning.

That’s because there is an Autocomplete button which will select a strong fantasy team for you from the available players, picking a captain and vice-captain, which you can choose to enter as it stands, or edit as you see fit.

You can use Autocomplete for any of your entries into the tournament. Use it once, or for all three entries if you so wish. Or pick all three of your teams using your own knowledge! The choice is entirely yours!

3. What can we win playing the Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll game?

The prizes on offer for every Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll tournament are as follows:

  • Players finishing 1st to 1000th – £10 ticket for entry into the next £10 entry Big Pick 6 game.
  • Players finishing 1001st to 6000th – £2 ticket for entry into the next £2 entry Big Pick 6 game.

Both of these real cash fantasy games offer genuine cash prizes, so you get a free chance to play another fantasy game, this time with a chance to win genuine, freely withdrawable cash. Which comes no wagering requirement attached to it!

4. How do Players Score Points for me?

Good question! Here’s a breakdown of how players can score points for your Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll fantasy team:

  • Playing up to 60 minutes in a game – 1 point.
  • Playing 60+ minutes in a game – 1 point.
  • Midfielder or Forward plays the full game – 1 point.

  • Defender Scores a Goal – 6 points
  • Midfielder Scores a Goal – 5 points
  • Forward Scores a Goal – 4 points
  • Goalkeeper or Defender keeps a clean sheet (and plays for 60+ minutes) – 4 points.
  • Midfielder keeps a clean sheet (and plays for 60+ minutes) – 1 point.
  • An assist (a pass/move that leads directly to a goal) – 3 points.
  • Any save a goalkeeper makes – 0.5 points.

  • If a goalkeeper has a shot on goal – 1 point.
  • If a defender has a shot on goal – 0.6 points.
  • Shot on goal by a midfielder or forward – 0.4 points.

Unfortunately, it is not all positive news. Sometimes in a game an incident can occur which will be. viewed as a penalty. Consequently, your player may lose points if any of the following happen.

  • If a defender or goalkeeper concedes two goals – -1 point.
  • If a player scores an own goal – -2 points.
  • If a player misses a penalty – -2 points.
  • If a player gets a yellow card – -1 point.

  • If a player commits a foul that sees a penalty awarded – -2 points.
  • If a team loses in the time the player is on the pitch – -0.3 points.

4. What are the Stacking Penalties?

Stacking penalties only apply if you pick two or more defensive players from the same team and that team lands a clean sheet. Subsequently, if this occurs then players will be deducted points. But only if you have a significant number of defensive players on one team.

  • If a team has 2 defensive players and the team keeps a clean sheet – -1 point for defender 2.
  • If a team has 3 defensive players and the team keeps a clean sheet – -2 points for defender 3.
  • If a team has 4 defensive players and the team keeps a clean sheet – -3 points for defender 4.

5. Are there any strategies I can employ when picking my Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll team?

Over the years, fantasy football has grown massively in popularity, consequently, there are plenty of guides online for strategy. However, if you don’t have the time to read through these sometimes-lengthy posts, here’s some quick and easy advice to follow:

Hints and Tips

  • Always captain the player you feel is likely to score most points for you that week.
  • Look for defenders that take free kicks or penalties as they earn some serious points if they score goals as well as keep clean sheets.
  • Creative and goalscoring midfielders tend to score more points than defensive minded midfielders, although that difference is less marked in the Weekly Big Pick 6 Freeroll fantasy game as it is in others.
  • Goalkeepers that keep clean sheets and who make plenty of saves are a good source of additional points.
  • Use the filter to check through how the players available have performed this season in fantasy terms (form). This will show you how many points they have earned over the course of the season.
  • Use your maximum three picks from any one team wisely, remembering those stacking penalties for selecting lots of defenders from one team.
