Dream11 Vs Gamezy: Which one is Better?

We will be testing these apps in the following categories:

  1. Number of users
  2. User Interface
  3. App Features
  4. Fantasy Point System
  5. Type of Contests
  6. Team Composition

1.Number of Users

Let’s find out which app has more users, Dream11 or Gamezy 

Dream11 Total Users: Dream11 is the pioneer in the fantasy gaming segment with over 140 million (14 crores) registered users in 2021. 

Gamezy Total Users: As of 2020, Gamzey has 20 lakh app downloads and is trusted by over 1 crore players. Gamezy ads in the IPL played a massive role in helping them gain users. In fact, Gamezy also featured in the top 10 most loved IPL ads in the Wavemaker’s IPL Mesh report.

👉 The Verdict: 

Dream11 is ahead of the competition when it comes to its user base. Dream11 has more than 14 crore users, which is approximately 14 times the user base of Gamzey. 

As Dream11 has more players, it automatically becomes the ‘safer’ app for a beginner. However, for a fantasy gaming app, having more users leads to more competition and, thus, lesser chances of victory!

The lesser the competition on such apps, the more chances you have of winning. 

Our pick in this category goes to Gamezy. 

2. User Interface

Next, let’s discuss which of these apps- Dream11 or Gamezy – has a better user interface. 

Dream11 User Interface

Dream 11’s interface is pretty straightforward to use, even if you are new to the app.

The top bar comprises the different sports Dream11 offers- Cricket, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Kabaddi, and more. 

In the bottom panel, you can see

  • Recent matches and the past games you have participated in.
  • winner tab to check the prize winners of all matches.
  • A Chat section that allows you to chat with your friends.

Gamezy User Interface

Gamzey started out as a platform to play fantasy sports. However, it has pivoted in recent times and now offers 15+ games. 

The interface is a bit more crowded than Dream11 as it offers many other sports apart from Cricket and Football. You can play games like Rummy, Ludo, Pool, Carrom, Snakes, Ladder, etc.

While the options to play games in Gamezy are more than Dream11, it complicates the interface a little. 

The app has quick links to Fantasy sports, Rummy, Referral section, and a home button in the bottom panel. 

Nonetheless, the app is still very easy to use once you get the hang of it. 

👉 The Verdict: 

If you want to play fantasy sports, Dream11 definitely has a more user-friendly interface than Dream11. Our pick for this section would be Dream11. 

3. App Features

Let’s move on and compare what these 2 apps have to offer in terms of features: 

Dream11 App Features

Dream11 app has the following features: 

  • Offers 6 sports– Cricket, Baseball, Football, Kabaddi, Basketball, Handball, and Hockey.
  • The bottom panel of the app has a “winner section” that lets you see the person that won grand leagues in recent matches. You can study their teams and make your strategy for future matches. 
  • They have a good referral program that lets users earn 10% (up to Rs 200) of their friend’s added amount that they spend to join a contest.
  • Free team suggestions, match analysis, and pitch reports. 
  • There’s also an interesting chat feature that lets fantasy players create a group with their friends and chat with them.
  • You can build your own fan following just like on a social network, follow other fantasy players, and engage with the Dream11 community in the feed section.

Gamezy App Features

Gamezy app has the following features: 

  • Gamezy has more than 15 games you can choose from, including popular games like Ludo, Poker, Rummy, Snakes and Ladders, and more. 
  • Players can earn up to Rs 12,250/ Friend via Gamezy’s referral program.
  • The app offers cash prizes up to INR 5 crores. 
  • Unlike Dream11, which offers to play regular fantasy sports, Gamezy offers many unique gameplays like 1st and 2nd innings fantasy, Live Fantasy (play for a block of 5 overs), or a normal full match fantasy game. 
  • Free team suggestions, match analysis, and pitch reports. 
  • Gamezy is the first app in the gaming industry to take 0% commission tables in Rummy. 

 👉 The Verdict: 

Gamezy is clearly ahead in the features section. The app has more sports to offer. Moreover, their referral program is more lucrative than Dream11’s. 

While Gamezy lacks features like chatting and following other fantasy players, it makes up for it with its diverse portfolio of games. 

We think Gamezy wins this round.
