Many Fantasy Sports platforms have tried adding advertisements to earn money, but that hinders the user experience, and therefore they have rolled back this business model.
The simplest and the best revenue model for Fantasy Sports is commission. As players have to pay the entry fee to enter the match, Fantasy Sports platforms charge their commission from these entry fees. This way, they get the highest amount of revenue. Suppose the accumulated entry fees of a match are 1,00,000; the platform will charge a 10% commission fee, and in this way, the platform will earn 10,000 for a single match. As the popularity of the platform increases, the entry fees accumulated will increase 10x or even 100x, and so will the earning of the platform.
