Cantor launches two daily fantasy basketball leagues

Nov 1, 2012 11:01 AM

Cantor Data Services, a subsidiary of Cantor Fitzgerald, today announced the launch of two daily fantasy basketball leagues: Cantor 5 and Cantor Top Tier for NBA.  Both leagues offer the ultimate fantasy basketball experience and combine fair play with competitive balance.   Registered users can enjoy a range of interactive features available at Cantor Fantasy Sports, including public chat sessions, managed friendship lists, leaderboards and scoreboards. 

“We are pleased to introduce two daily fantasy basketball leagues that offer fantasy enthusiasts the latest in flexible play and entertainment,” said Matthew Holt, vice president of Fantasy Games. “The launch of Cantor 5 and Cantor Top Tier for NBA follows the launch last month of two weekly fantasy football leagues and reaffirms our commitment to providing a revolutionary, social fantasy sports platform that combines fair play with competitive balance.”

Cantor 5 offers a daily fantasy basketball league.  Participants can select a team of five players consisting of one center, two forwards and two guards. A fantasy line will be given for two teams. The fantasy scores of all users will be added up and the fantasy line is applied to determine the winner.

Also a daily fantasy basketball league, Cantor Top Tier for NBA allows participants to select from tiers, rather than through a fantasy line.  Tiers of basketball players are grouped by a similar fantasy value and participants can select one player from each tier to form their fantasy team. After the first game begins, participants can monitor their fantasy points based performance on a side by side live scoreboard. Participants can draft as many rosters and enter them in as many leagues as they would like. 

Players can learn to play by entering one of many free leagues.  Those competing in a pay league must be at least 18 years old and reside in one of the following states: Alabama, Alaska, California, District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
