Stakester lets you play FIFA for real money and prizes against your mates
Fancy winning money and prizes for playing FIFA? Of course you do
Let us introduce you to Stakester, the home of playing FIFA for real money and prizes against friends and strangers. From the comfort of your own couch, Stakester allows you to take on fellow players with victory rewarding you with real-life cash and rewards.
In fact, you might already be familiar with them if you read our piece on the 'gamer lean', where they and an expert from Leeds University proved that leaning in when playing FIFA actually helps you win - up a point, at least.
If you back yourself as a titan of FIFA 21, if you always come out on top against your mates, if you're starting to think you might be almost too good, then this is the app for you.
Founded by Gary Foreman, one of the creators of Grand Theft Auto, Stakester has 30,000 active players across the world, with high player bases in the US, the UK, and all over Europe. The app has also been featured in Bloomberg.
Along with the potential financial rewards, each game you play also unlocks Gems no matter the result. You can then cash in these Gems for physical prizes delivered straight to your door. These can be subscriptions to places like Netflix and Spotify, or products from the likes of Beats by Dre, Xbox, Samsung and Apple.
And it's not just FIFA you can play for money and prizes. Stakester lets you take on players at Call of Duty, Rocket League, UFC, Tekken and more.
The concept is simple: connect your platform, pick your game, select your fee for the match (which can range from $2.50 to $15) and then the winner takes it all - the cash, the prizes, and the bragging rights.
What's more, if you sign up now, you can get your first game free! Click here to install the app from your devices app store, whether it's Android or Apple, and get playing.
