Delroy McIntosh first winner of Let’s Bet Sports Fantasy League
Delroy McIntosh of Bartica was the first recipient of an authentic English Premier League jersey for accumulating 100 points in Let’s Bet Sports’ new Fantasy Football League.
Brand Ambassador Rawle Toney made the presentation on Wednesday at the Company’s Corporate Headquarters at Lamaha Street, Georgetown.
McInstosh, who is an avid Arsenal fan, saw his team top Newcastle United 1-0 on the opening week of the League. His picks on the impact players proved to be the best which saw him rack up the most points. He further indicated it comes down to a deep study of players and teams.
Toney revealed this is the first of many winners and others should play to be in a chance.
“Our league is reaching far and wide and is open to anyone 18 years or older across Guyana. You just need to sign up and use our code HEA31M. We could have multiple winners, so sign up and play,” the Brand Ambassador implored.
Keno Washington, also of Bartica, came second with 98 points and he won a $500 voucher to either play online, or at any lottery/Let’s Bet Sports agents’ countrywide.
Fantasy football is a game in which participants assemble an imaginary team of real life footballers and score points based on those players’ actual statistical performance or their perceived contribution on the field of play.
Participants are asked to select 11 players within a price budget; in this case with the Premier League, it’s £100 (imaginary figure). At the end of the season in May 2020, there will be a grand draw and two players’ jersey directly from the league will be awarded.
