About The App

The story of Dream 11 is one which has the attention of entrepreneurs and sports fanatics. Dream 11 is the first-of-its-kind fantasy sports and betting platform in India that legally offers cash prizes to participants. Fantasy sports have been a part of the gaming subculture for quite some time now. In the span of a decade, Dream 11 has quickly grown into an operation supporting 20 million+ users, across different types of fantasy sports betting.

At present, Dream 11 is a proud member of the "Unicorn Club " a first for an Indian gaming application and service start-up. But, what does Dream 11 offer as a fantasy sports app? Does it also include actual betting? How is it different from other fantasy sports services? Let us find out.

Business model of earning platforms

The fantasy sports apps such as Dream 11 run on the concept of season-based sports team-building and scoring based on the actual performance of the player in the real match. You get to choose a sports type and league and create an assorted team of players. The business model runs on four critical ingredients that are paramount to the brand's success as a fantasy sport betting brand.


Subscription Revenue

As a multifaceted fantasy sports app, Dream 11 wisely began with a diversified market that targeted fans of Cricket, Hockey, Football, Kabaddi, and Basketball. Daily contests and lucrative rewards in every supported sports category can also win you a sea of users and generate significant subscription revenue. Additionally, they reciprocated the subscription with loyalty programs and incentive systems alongside the staple contest rewards.


Fees & Commissions

Dream 11&aos;s meteoric rise to the Unicorn Club was further bolstered by the commissions it receives. For every match played, the brand gets a percentage of the rewards as commission while the rest is distributed among the winners. A fantasy sports-based betting app must generate a quarter of your net revenue as fees and commissions for every match reward.



In the very beginning, Dream 11 was run on an ad-based model that followed the typical seasonal format, which did not find many takers. In 2012, the company transitioned its services to a daily match-based model and that allowed users to put money on the teams. The ad revenue however still forms a good percentage of its yearly earnings.


Brand Promotion

It needs to be noted that while Dream 11 owes its success to the rapid Cricket-loving Indian market, the choice of sport. Today, Dream 11 happens to be a multi-billion dollar entity that even sponsors the almighty IPL, and has eminent sports personalities for ambassadors. Fantasy sports betting apps of any size, scope, and scale require omnichannel brand promotion for revenue.



Given how its business model flourished, in FY19 alone, the app has awakened venture capitalists to the profitability of a fantasy sports-based app service. Dream 11 is projected to earn its entire year!' worth of revenue with its title sponsorship deal of IPL 2020! With a fantasy sports service that is unique enough, you can secure multi-round funding.
