Web Platform for Rugby Fans Fantasy Rugger

Gambling fantasy platform development that enables users to pick the teams and manage them through the rugby championship and win real money for the achievements of their favourite players.

About the client

The client came to us with the idea of creating a web platform for rugby fans where they can pick their virtual dream team for the championships. Fantasy Rugger is not a simple gambling website; it’s a platform that collects the actual data about the players in real-time. After choosing the players for the virtual team, the user receives points for the player's performance in the real championship.

Now, rugby fans can win real money for the real achievements of their favourite players.

The Challenge

The project’s main idea is to collect data about real players using the unique stats engine. Now, all the information will be available in one place – Fantasy Rugger.

The main challenge was to deliver a gambling platform based on real-time statistics and provide gamers with relevant analytics.


The Solution

The Scout

How it works: The user picks his virtual dream team that will later participate in the virtual championships with other users’ teams. The results of the onsite championships depend on real player statistics.

The challenge we faced was to display large amounts of data without harming the page’s loading time.

My Team

This section is made to manage your team. You can choose the Data View or Pitch View – the line-up that has been playing is displayed on the left, and the replaced members are displayed on the right. The user can choose the week and see how many points the player scored during the selected week.

My Subs – here, all the replaced team members are displayed.

Your Leagues – this button opens the list of leagues the users joined, so they can see all the information about each league by clicking on it.

Next Fixtures – displays scheduled games (time when the game begins, the teams that will play, the stadium).

Important! When the users pick the team members, they have to choose the key man and/or captain from the team list. The points gained by these two players are doubled, so selecting the best players for these positions is very important.


In order to simplify user experience while joining the existing league or creating the new one, we moved the whole league management into a separate page. We introduced the autofill button to speed up the process of picking players for the team. Users can set different visibility restrictions and apply prizing strategies that convert into real money.

Prizing is closely connected with pricing. Leagues are divided into free and billable and offer the next prizing modes:

  • Winner Takes All (All the prize fund goes to the user who scored more points)
  • Fundraising (50% goes to the creator of the league and 50% to the winner)
  • Top 3 (50% goes to the 1st place, 30% to the 2nd place and 20% to the 3rd place)

User's profile

The user profile combines members’ personal information with the transparent system of their payment records. My account section consists of:

  • Withdraw – when the users win in the league, they can request the money for payout to their Paypal or Realex account (depending on the set payment method). The admin checks all the payment requests to control the financial flow.
  • Verify your identity – due to the Gambling Commission requirements, all users must pass identity and age checks. That’s why we added the obligatory verification: every time users open the app, they have to verify within 72 hours; otherwise, the access to paid leagues(join/create) will be blocked.
  • Deposit – users can deposit money via Realex or Paypal to participate in billable leagues. These payment systems have been chosen as the most frequently used in gambling.

We also added the rules section for the newcomers to explain how the system works.
