Oulala is one of the most innovative fantasy football games on the market, with its scoring system allocating points across 70 different criteria rather than the mere handful of scoring methods used by the vast majority of other daily fantasy football websites.
Accurate through balls and big chances created add points to your team, while your players can also lose points for having shots blocked, missing chances, conceding fouls and receiving cards.
Funded by a Kickstarter in 2014, Oulala offers fantasy football games for leagues such as the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, French Ligue 1 and Italian Serie A, while the multi-league option means that players can put stars from these leagues side by side in their team.
Another key feature that attracts a lot of people to play Oulala over other fantasy football games is the chance to use in-game substitutions to increase a team’s possible final points score.
How in-game substitutions work in Oulala is like this: If you sub out Diego Costa of Chelsea after 60 minutes, he stops scoring points for you at that time, so if he scores a goal after you have substituted him you will not be given any points for it.
Your chosen sub, for instance Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo – will only start scoring points for your team after the 60-minute mark. The idea behind Oulala’s in-game substitutions is to reward people who want to play along as matches are ongoing as Oulala is a live fantasy football game.
Oulala is the official partner of Leicester City and players can name a squad of up to 17 players. This is to allow them to make use of in-game substitutions, although players who do not want to do this can spend all of their budget on a team of 11 footballers instead, if they so wish.
Only daily fantasy football contests are available on Oulala and its games are known as leagues.
