It brought home the Virtual and Fantasy Operator due to the success of Ultimate Fan, the next level fantasy football game which topped the app store charts earlier this year as the No.1 grossing football fantasy app, and is now live across the Atlantic Ocean with the likes of NFL Jacksonville Jaguars and NFL Cincinnati Bengals.
