A new free-to-play basketball predictor game that awards a jackpot prize of $100m has been launched by Bally’s Interactive. Bally Bracket requires participants to correctly select the outcome of all 63 games in US College basketball’s NCAA Men’s Division 1 tournament.
Bally Bracket will also randomly award a series of additional cash prizes in increments of $50,000, $25,000, $10,000 and $5,000, totalling $100,000.
The new game was created by SportCaller, the free-to-play specialists within the Bally’s Interactive business. SportCaller has developed a suite of sports prediction games in which the knowledge of sports fans is competitively challenged in order to win prizes.
Adi Dhandhania, COO North America at Bally’s Interactive, commented: “The NCAA tournament is always an enjoyable time of year as people gather to cheer on their favourite teams. Bally’s has been a brand synonymous with fun for decades, so we wanted to develop an engaging free-to-play game for fans to participate in and have an opportunity to win $100m. We are excited about our partnership with Sinclair Broadcast Group and will be using their massive media footprint to promote the Bally Bracket game.”
Registration for Bally Bracket is already open, and players will begin predicting once the tournament field is confirmed on March 13th, with entries closing when the first round of 64 games begins on March 17th.
