Season Selector is an online and unique fantasy betting game that offers players prizes based on their football predictions.
"Richard and Gareth have developed a really great, easy to use online system"
Richard and Gareth have developed a really great, easy to use online system which allows people playing Season Selector to quickly make their predictions by simply dragging and dropping each of the Premiership teams into the players predicted finishing position.
Most importantly for me, the system also works out all of the points (which used to take me ages) and displays the immediately.
Players can also interact with the website by making comments on the ‘Topic of the Week’, which in previous years has led to some really good banter, particularly amongst the supporters of opposing teams!Read in full
Our customer had been running the ‘Season Selector’ game amongst his friends and family for a few years, but as the game grew in popularity so did the time required to work out some of the more complex ‘Bonus’ calculations.
It soon became obvious that the previously used spreadsheet was no longer a realistic way to manage the game and an intuitive website which could carry out the calculations automatically was required.
They approached us to create an online version that could offer everything the local spreadsheet system had but incorporate it into a friendly and easy to manage website.
The website features a ‘drag and drop’ facility where signed up players can easily move teams into a league table to give their prediction of how they believe the league will finish at the end of the season. From their finalised league, the system then cross references the current Barclays Premiership league and issues points and bonus points accordingly after every Premiership game throughout the season, allowing players to see exactly where they stand at any one time.
There is also a ‘Topic of the Week’ area that allows signed up players to add their comments to that week’s talking point.
