Product/Service Summary

Super 8 is a Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) website (https://www.super8.in/) and app where any Cricket, Kabaddi, Football or Basketball fan can pick 8 players and form his own virtual team and enter a fantasy contest in the sport of his choice competing with other sports fans.

Based on real-life performances by players in a match, his virtual team collects points ranking him on a leaderboard in near real-time as the match progresses.

At the end of the match, the top 8% of all teams take home cash prizes.

In addition, they also get a personalised feed of curated content based on their favourite sports and teams.
