Playing Fantasy Sports Online

While on my recent conference in Malta (discussed here) I spent some time chatting to the directors of a new firm that has opened in Sliema.

The company is doing something very innovative – they have launched a fantasy football startup!

The game enables supporters to select the best players in Europe for their squad and then follow their performances live on their smart devices. It is quite amazing.

They explained the format of the game to me in some detail and looks quite complicated. They told me that it is a “skill game”. It looked entirely to be based on luck to me, but it seems that they have a small number of players who outscore almost everyone else quite consistently. While it didn’t look skillful to me, clearly some smarter people know something that I don’t…

Locating A Hotel In Malta

Your author recently attended a conference in the tiny Mediterranean island of Malta. The conference itself was passable. Not life changing, but passable.

Unfortunately for me, the five star hotel that played host to the conference was fully booked before I made my own reservations. Therefore, I stayed in a hotel situated very close by, the Carlton Hotel in Sliema.

The interesting thing about the hotel is that positioning was superb for my needs and – I would expect – for most holidaymakers. It was a very acceptable hotel, with restaurants and bars close by and the sea only 50 metres away – that makes a change from my normal life!

Since I was in Malta for a conference, my time spent exploring the town and island was very limited. Despite that, I got a good vibe from my hotel in Malta and I hope one day to return for a longer visit.
