Based on the performance of these players in the real-life tournaments, points are awarded to the Fantasy Cricket players. These points determine success or failure.

How should a Fantasy Cricket App be developed to become popular?
Well, there are several aspects to bear in mind while developing a Fantasy Cricket App. The most prominent ones are discussed below.
Every time the user opens an app, it is the home screen that they see first. So, it is vital to design the home screen in such a way that it is self-explanatory and attractive.
Users need to know about the contests that are going on for them to participate and win. So, the contest screen must have all the essential information about the contests, including the winning amount, entry fee, etc.
Users should be able to monitor the real-time scores. So, the app should notify users on live scores through SMS or push notifications.
You should first be clear of the fact that in order to expand your business, you need to expand your user base. This increases the popularity level of your business and also the revenue being generated. So, make sure to give referral bonuses or rewards for successful referrals. For those who do not know what a successful referral is, when you refer the app to someone and they install it, that referral is considered to be successful. This encourages users to refer your app to someone who might like it.
Dashboards for better management
This is a must-have feature for the benefit of the users as well as the admins. This feature allows them to manage the matches as well as the players. Users should also be able to create new tournaments or join the existing ones.
Fantasy Cricket Software Development
To achieve a better gaming experience, it is essential to incorporate cutting-edge technologies. Moreover, the software behind the app should be snag-free. This helps in experiencing lag-free gaming. So, pay extra attention while developing and testing the software that best suits your requirements. Direct your focus towards offering ease of customization and accessibility.
Effective management of taxes is necessary. So, the app should allow the admins to manage taxes with ease. Activating National Tax System is recommended.
This helps the admins get detailed and informative reports on the performance of the application. These reports should be comprehensible and downloadable. They play a significant role in making data-driven decisions.
This in-app chat feature allows the users to communicate within the app. This helps in maintaining an active community of like-minded people. Through in-app messages, players can discuss their experiences with the app. In addition, this makes the app a lot more enjoyable and fun.
Other Rewarding Features
Apart from the aforementioned pointers, there are other features that could help you boost the popularity of your Fantasy Cricket App. The most prominent ones are discussed below.
Prediction of key players
In Cricket, players are chosen based on several categories, including their performance in the previous matches, workload, etc. So, while playing Fantasy Cricket, users need to be cautious of who is playing the tournament. To help users in this regard, the app should provide all necessary information about the players as well as the tournaments.
Interactive quizzes related to Cricket
The app can also include quizzes about Cricket and reward users for every correct answer. This helps the Fantasy Cricket players to score better as well as to improve their Cricket knowledge.
This augments the spirit of competition among the users. As a result, they are motivated to perform better in every tournament than the previous ones.
Prediction of winners
Games predicting the winners could be included in the app. This boosts the fun factor, making the app a lot more enjoyable.
Prediction of the team players for the tournament
The ‘Playing 11’ keeps changing for various reasons, as discussed earlier. So to simplify the process of predicting the ‘Playing 11’, the app could offer possible predictions for the benefit of the players.
It is said that almost 66.67% (a rough estimate) of sports enthusiasts in India follow Cricket. In other words, approximately 6 out of 10 sports followers are Cricket enthusiasts (with or without other sports enthusiasts, as every individual might have one or more favorite sports).
All that being said, it should now be explicit enough that a lot goes into Fantasy Sports App Development. Also, it is no doubt that Fantasy Cricket will continue to be supported and will have a decent growth curve in the coming years.
