CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - January 17, 2017) - Mobovivo, a wholly owned subsidiary of ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE: EPY), today announced the launch of the Mobovivo Sports Game Engine, a new technology that allows teams, leagues, restaurants and TV networks to increase revenue, viewing length and dwell time by engaging audiences and guests with interactive games.
In development since 2013, when an initial version of the engine was launched and featured in ESPN Sync and updated for the 2014 FIFA World Cup for Intel and ESPN, the fully-featured, multi-game engine is now available for NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB, UFC, NCAA, NASCAR, Formula 1, CFL, soccer and other sports, and features five unique games.
- Pick Sheet Game -- increase audiences by engaging the whole family in a simple pick sheet game that pits groups and each side of the stadium against each other.
- Lucky Shark -- the easiest sports game. Audiences pick a number and every time that number appears in the game they win (e.g. player number, time, number of runs, points and even the length of the national anthem).
- Daily Fantasy Game -- sell more tickets or increase viewership with daily fantasy challenges that everybody can play.
- Next Goal Game -- viewers predict the next goal, touchdown, run, or basket on their mobile device. Correct guesses result in prizes, points, and badges compatible with existing campaigns and integrate into in-venue and broadcast overlays.
- Play-by-play Game -- set the game beat with Mobovivo's in-game polling API and content management system added to new and existing apps, websites and broadcast graphics to engage fans in-venue or at home during a sporting event.
The games are designed for all ages, are simple and easy to play and fun for the whole family. Customer roll-outs will begin in early 2017 with mobile game apps on iOS and Android soon to be announced. The games are free to use, advertiser and brand friendly, can drive native and programmatic advertising and be linked to loyalty programs, points and prizes.
"Mobovivo's Sport Game Engine makes it easy for businesses, teams and venues to better engage their audiences while increasing their revenue," says Trevor Doerksen, CEO and Founder for Mobovivo.
The Sports Game Engine will be available for use on Android and Apple smartphones and web-based platforms.
