HypSports adds a cash prize basketball competition to their free Mobile Game Platform for sports fans

ORLANDO, FLORIDA (June 19, 2018) – HypGames, Inc. — a sports entertainment leader — announced today they’ve added an arcade action basketball competition to their free mobile game platform, HypSports. The game is the second on the HypSports platform that offers real cash to winners. In an industry first, it combines the appointment mechanics of popular trivia apps with the skill-based action of best-selling sports video games.

The new competition joins HypSports’ full schedule of daily digital events, including the season-long sport and esport fantasy game, HypSports Showdown, and the daily trivia show, Trivia Clash.

“The success of HQ Trivia does not go unnoticed in our industry. They’ve proved that people want to compete in live daily events for cash prizes. We’ve used our background in creating some of the most popular sports video games to build a new kind of playable media channel that offers sports fans and gamers a daily destination to feed their competitive nature in a variety of ways,” said Mike Taramykin, CEO of HypSports.

With the introduction of Basket Brawl, HypSports sets a new standard as the only mobile contest app that offers a full schedule of both daily and season-long competition.

In addition to providing a schedule of events, the HypSports platform allows on-the-spot event creation, custom competitive events, and unique partnership opportunities, including integration into live sporting events.

“We’re already working on our next release. This is just the beginning,” said Taramykin.

HypSports is available to download free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad, and Google Play for Android devices.
