Previous winners Include FanDuel, DraftKings.

I love Boom Fantasy. I used to play on DraftKings and Fanduel, but I never thought those sites had the players' interests at heart.

Boom. A new fantasy sports app has overtaken FanDuel and DraftKings as the Best Fantasy Sports Operator of 2017, according to the annual EGR North America awards held last night. Boom Fantasy won top honors in the annual award show, held at the Global iGaming Show and Expo in San Diego, California.

Boom Fantasy is one of the newest players in the daily fantasy sports scene, and has quietly and quickly emerged as a top competitor to the market leaders thanks to its accessible and fun gameplay and commitment to player fairness.

“This is a great honor and a testament to our team’s focus on providing an experience that players crave,” said Stephen A. Murphy, co-founder and CEO of Boom Fantasy. “We offer daily fantasy sports that are fair, fun, and easy for anyone to play.”

Instead of creating a lineup with an artificial salary cap and then facing pros who put in 300 entries at a time, Boom Fantasy offers an innovative gameplay that lets players choose one athlete out of groups of four in one specific category at a time (e.g. who will score the most points or rebounds or three-pointers…).

This style of gameplay makes it easier for sports fans to track how they’re doing, and it eliminates the huge edge that pros using sophisticated algorithms have over casual players on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings.

“I love Boom Fantasy. I used to play on DraftKings and FanDuel, but I never thought those sites had the players’ interests at heart,” said Pat Daly, a frequent player on the app. “Boom Fantasy has fun contests and amazing customer service.”

Boom Fantasy will run some of the largest contests in the industry for the NBA Finals, featuring a $100,000 championship event in Game 4 of the Finals.

Boom Fantasy is available in the App Store or through a direct download on Android. Players can also play on desktop at
