Launch of PlayJackpot FootballMonday, September 12, 2011, 15:06
A new interactive game will hit the market this September as Genesis Interactive Entertainment Limited will be launching PlayJackpot Football in Malta. After having obtained a remote gaming license from the Lotteries and Gaming Authority earlier this year, the company will launch the first of its kind, interactive casual betting game in the local market. The game provides football fans and their friends the opportunity to predict the outcomes of LIVE football games as they unfold.
The game is very simple! You simply need to answer, in real time, a series of different questions that are sent to you while the game is INPLAY. These could include questions related to, halftime scores, number of goals scored, first team to score, goal scorers and others. All questions are submitted within the context of the LIVE match.
The game is interactive! You get 5 questions thrown at you during the course of the match, either via SMS or the PlayJackpot Football Website. Each question carries a defined amount of points and must be answered within 4 minutes of when it is published. The player with the highest amount of points takes home the winning Jackpot.
The game is fun! Whoever plays truly gets engaged whether an avid football fan or just a casual supporter. The leaderboard updates as the game unfolds giving an added element of fun competition between players.
“Engaging fans during live football events is the main objective of the game,” said Franco de Gabriele – CEO of Genesis Interactive Entertainment. “We have been testing the aptitude of football fans in Europe for the past 6 months and have found that a real time interactive experience and the upside of winning the game jackpot give them a real kick. It is for this reason that we have designed a simple interactive game that all fans and their friends can play while watching their favourite teams play.”
PlayJackpot Football will officially launch in Malta on September 18th 2011 at 1700hrs as Manchester United meet arch rivals Chelsea in one of the most anticipated games of the English Premier League this season. Registration for Manchester United v Chelsea is open until 20 minutes prior to kick-off time. To register your interest in PlayJackpot, visit www.playjackpot.net.
