Six months after the abrupt closure of the swipe-to-bet programme the team behind the Bookee app are back with a new Swipe update.
Their latest product is a free-to-play predictor game that retains the swiping feature that has proven to be a common commitment to Bookee and asks users to predict upcoming sporting events inside their native app.
A round of right picks means a big payday for the winner, with the company expecting to introduce extensions of the six-figure jackpot early. Users can also participate in leader boards which offer cash and virtual prizes for guaranteed prize pools.
Swipe had previously intended to launch the state of New Jersey in March 2020, following the securing of a vendor license. However, a global postponement on live sports has also delayed its plans.
A sports trivia feature was quickly launched which proved to be popular at a time when sports and competition are sorely missed, and sports took their chance to step into the limelight.
The StayINtertoto Cup is an esports FIFA contest set up by an independent twitter account @LockdownFIFA which includes 64 teams represented by a professional battling it out from their club.
The Premier League is well known by names like Leicester City’s James Maddison and Crystal Palace’s Andros Townsend and the competition reached the knockout process over the weekend with the final set for Sunday, April 26.
The contest asks for donations to the NHS only through Just Giving page. Swipe has run free-to-play contests which match every winner with a donation to the NHS.
Swipe maker Adam Wilson said: “While we are living in the strangest of times, we must persevere and find ways to keep moving forward.
“Live sport will return one day, and hopefully very soon, but until then Swipe’s new trivia feature and focus on esports has proven a real hit with our customers. We’re very happy to play our part with the #StayIntertotoCup who are raising important funds for NHS Charities Together, the most worthy of charities.
“We all need some light relief at the moment and the tournament is really helping with that.”
