Avoid Mistakes (Beginner did)

In this chapter, we will discuss common mistakes that beginners make. In which you can learn and avoid that mistakes.

Here we will talk about mistakes from simple to complex.

So, please cooperate with me.

These are the key point of mistakes.

  • Deadline (Lineouts)
  • Fantasy Point system
  • Lack of knowledge (Player, Pitch, Format…)
  • Play every match
  • 1Crore Grand League
  • Investment
  • Greediness


Fantasy Point System-

Lack of Knowledge ( Player, Pitch, Format…)

Play Every Match-

1Crore Grand League-



These are all mistakes that many beginners make. I request you all to please avoid this type of mistake.

Bonus Tips

In my experience, many beginners, when they play any match, they become addicted to the match. So they may be looking for live scores and checking the team performance and rank.
It is the most stressful(whether the match goes according to your team or not). The result is declared when the match ends, and it is sports anything can happen. Thus, my suggestion is If you watch a live match, watch for enjoyment or analyse the player’s technique and pitch behaviour.

Now time for an important section, as there are so many fantasy apps like Dream11, MPL, My Circle 11, Gamezy, many more. So the question is-


In which types of fantasy app is best for beginners and Why

(I assure you this tactic is 100% applied and proven)

Here I will discuss some features according to you can choose your best fantasy app. Your app should have maximum features from the following.

Features to Choosing a Best Fantasy App-

  1. Low commission [taking less charges on the contest]
  2. Extra Benifit [Like Cash bonus usable contests | extra discount | Depositing offer]
  3. Low competition [New trusted platform | Promoting through ads on TV]
  4. Genuine and trusted app [should have well-known brand ambassador]

If your fantasy app has at least 3 of the above following features. Then that app is best to play. It would be best if you tried once.

Why are these types of fantasy apps best for beginners?

As you are a beginner and generally beginners have not as much knowledge and experience. So he may not create the best team always. Hence, in the long run, he may lose money (There is more probability that he may lose).
If you follow my tactic, your losses would also be minimal if you lose. Because If you play in those apps, then you can use the bonus and also get an extra discount. Because of that, you can invest how much you want to invest in the minimum amount. If you do not understand, please go through with the example-
Suppose you play in


Grand League Contest

5 Contest- 5 * Rs 49= Rs 245

In a Match, maximum Bonus Use Rs 25

Final Price- 245-25=Rs 220


Grand League Contest

5 Contest- 5 * Rs 49= Rs 245

In a Match, maximum Bonus Use 20% per team

49 of 20%=9.8

Final Price- 245-9.8*5=Rs 196 – Extra Discount

I think if you have any doubt regarding the above investment, then it should be clear.

This is a Short intro to the second article of our free course. If you want please check out “How to Choose your best Fantasy apps” and the best recommendation of fantasy apps.

Up and Down (Comeback)

“Life is like the ocean, it goes up and down.”
By Venessa Paradis

As you know in every profession, up and down are quite natural. So don’t be afraid. You have to keep a presence to sustain in this arena.

I also suffer a lot of up and down in my career, but I didn’t afraid and try my best always.

It is also true that Bad times (up and down) teach us a bunch of creative things. In bad times you can also realize your mistake and learn so many things.

I think bad times are also necessary for life because it teaches a ton. Hence, do not be afraid, try to find your mistake and do your best to solve it.

In fantasy sports there are many chances of up and down… , That means you can win 4 or more matches continuously or lose 4-5 matches continuously.

Don’t put All your eggs in one basket.

It means that, don’t invest all your money in a single match. Because when it comes to sport, anything is possible. If you lose, no money for a comeback.

Therefore, I recommend you don’t invest all your money in a single match. Rather than, invest with an investment strategy for the future comeback.

My investment strategy-

  • First- divides all the amount into more than 5-10 parts (matches)
  • Second- play in discipline with your strategy. (no matter win or loss)
  • third- if you lose the first few matches, don’t be afraid, try to find your mistake and work hard; try for a great comeback.
