SuperDraft Inc, Caesars Entertainment Inc’s daily fantasy site, has announced the introduction of the SuperDraft Free SportsBook app, a free-to-play sports betting smartphone app with cash prizes and Caesars Rewards.
The app expands on the Caesar’s fan-friendly Daily Fantasy Sports offering, giving casual players new opportunities to interact with their favourite games and benefit from their sports knowledge. Caesars Entertainment revealed its strategic DFS interest in SuperDraft two months prior to the launch.
Fans will use the app to enter a social gaming experience that allows them to place large bets on their favourite sports without risking their money. Fans can compete for cash, gift cards, high-value items such as consumer goods, sporting and concert tickets, and exclusive VIP opportunities from Caesars Rewards by playing against their peers and other sports fans.
Sports betting rockets
Steve Wang, the founder and CEO of SuperDraft, stated: “Sports betting is exploding across the country, and fans are crying out for a better way to use their hard-earned sports IQ to cash in. We’re giving them something even better –– a way to win without spending a dime.
“The SuperDraft Free SportsBook is unlike anything fans have ever seen. We can’t wait to reward players with exclusive Caesars experiences and big-ticket prizes.”
CTO of SuperDraft Nate Hunter collaborated on the new app with Sportnco, a pioneer in the supply and operation of turnkey sports betting sites for gaming operators headquartered in France. It would offer free-to-play sports betting on all major American sports as well as a few international markets.
Caesars Sports & Online Gaming Co-President Eric Hession commented: “We are thrilled that SuperDraft has developed yet another way for players to experience Caesars Rewards. SuperDraft’s Free SportsBook is an exciting part of our best-in-class mobile and online ecosystem.
“Our connected palette of mobile and online apps allows Caesars Rewards members to play across our digital offerings and earn Reward Credits which can be used at all of the Caesars’ destinations and online properties.”
SuperCoin, a social gaming currency, is used as a token currency to place free bets at the SuperDraft Free SportsBook. When players accumulate enough SuperCoin, they can exchange it for gift cards and other big-ticket items like consumer goods, merchandise, and clothes, as well as vacations and holiday packages, in the in-app store.
Players will also play for Caesars Reward credits, which can be used to book travel packages and experiences at Caesars properties around the country. Display tickets, entertainment, spa packages, golf outings, and other activities are among them.
