Las Vegas igaming company Full Engagement Sports (FES) has formed a new agreement with Edinburgh-based Incentive Games app developers and gamification specialists to launch the latter’s bracket-challenge esport game.
FES will be releasing this game as a free-to-play gambling game to its customer base with a view to providing potential pari-mutuel betting. Additional features of the app will allow betting and participation across multiple sports like golf, NASCAR and tennis within each individual round of future tournaments.
In this variant of the prediction game, players will be challenged to properly rank teams in upcoming CS: GO round-robins, and then pick the teams will compete in the following brackets. Unsurprisingly CS: GO is first up when it comes to sport titles and players will be able to make their picks on events like the BLAST Premier Spring Finals, DreamHack Masters Spring Play Offs in June and, of course, ESL One Cologne 2 in August.
If the players are correct, they can win cash prizes. FES owns a patent that allows for the splitting of longer tournaments and competitions into daily and even hourly competitions with opportunities for winning at every stage.
Incentive Games CEO John Gordon said: “We are very excited about working with Full Engagement Sports and to develop its platform that will really harness the potential of its patent. This new esports-bracket game will give spectators a new way to enjoy the game, and the beauty of it is, that we can adapt it to almost any sport or esport.”
Nigel Wheatstone, Full Engagement Sports CEO, commented: “We met John from Incentive Games at the SBC summit in NJ last year and found his work to stand out amongst the crowd. After some intensive development, the team have produced a fantastic product that we hope will engage the tournament player on a whole new level and allow for lottery size prize pools for winners!”
