By releasing its latest U’s Picks app in partnership with Colchester United FC, mobile betting games developer Low6 has extended its sports affiliations.
On each match day, the app can be played for free by Colchester fans, with a share of £ 500 as the main prize.
In order to win the grand prize, supporters will need to correctly forecast specified match results, such as questions about how many scores, corners and saves the team will have throughout the full 90 minutes of play.
Excitement for Colchester fans
Low6 COO, Jake Johnson, said: “The official Colchester United app is exciting for all Colchester supporters.
“The new platform is a great addition for the fans, allowing them the opportunity to keep up to date with club stats, performance and the latest news whilst on the move.
“U’s Picks, created by Low6, will give fans the chance to pick the outcomes for every Colchester match, such as most corners, shots on target, first goal scorers and more.
“Fans will be pitting their wits, not against the bookie but rather other fans, with the objective to top the live leaderboard and win cash prizes.
“The technology is evolving all of the time, so fans can expect new features and promotions in the future too.”
In collaboration with Low6, Colchester, dubbed ‘The U’s’, is the newest in a series of professional football clubs to launch apps, others include Sheffield Wednesday, Sunderland AFC, Middlesbrough, Oldham Athletic and Hibernian.
Extra fun element to match day
Tim Waddington, General Manager of Colchester United added: “This partnership with Low6 to develop U’s PICKS is very exciting for our fans.
“The app will add an extra fun element to a matchday and to have the cash prizes available without an entry fee is just amazing.”
In November 2020, outside of football, Low6 signed an agreement with the UFC, releasing its UFC PICKS app to provide ‘a new second screen experience that puts the fan at the centre of the action’. Earlier in the year, a PDC Picks app was also published for the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC).
In the second quarter of 2021, the company is now pushing ahead with the ambition of releasing an Initial Public Offering (IPO). The plans ‘remain on track,’ according to Pine Investments, a shareholder in the app developer.
