Underdog Fantasy has been named “Fantasy Sports Site of the Year” by the 2022 edition of the American Gambling Awards.
The American Gambling Awards are produced by Gambling.com Group Limited, a leading provider of player acquisition services for the regulated global online gambling industry.
Underdog Fantasy is the fastest-growing paid fantasy sports company ever, with a valuation of $485 million after a series B round of fundraising. Underdog’s season-long NFL “Best Ball” game this year has a $10 million grand prize, almost three times larger than the previous biggest season long prize in history. Judges noted that Underdog has built an active, paying, six-figure customer base by offering a differentiated product that resonates with its users.
“Underdog Fantasy’s success is driven by the company’s focus on building new, innovative games and delivering amazing customer experiences – making it very deserving of the Fantasy Sports Site of the Year award. As Underdog continues to grow, its unique focus on product and experience will set the industry standard,” Charles Gillespie, CEO of Gambling.com Group, said.
