NBC SPORTS AND BOOM SPORTS EXTEND PARTNERSHIP FOR FREE-TO-PLAY GAMES
Free-To-Play NBC Sports Predictor App Will Expand Game Offerings Over Next Two Years
STAMFORD, Conn. – Jan. 19, 2021 – NBC Sports and Boom Sports today announced a multi-year partnership renewal for Boom Sports to continue as NBC Sports’ free-to-play gaming technology partner.
With the extension, NBC Sports Predictor, the highly-rated free-to-play sports gaming app, will expand its total game offerings over the next two years, and will begin to integrate PointsBet odds into gameplay. PointsBet is the official sports betting partner of NBC Sports.
Kicking off the new slate of games, a new basketball predictor game is set to launch in the first quarter of 2021 with two contests per week running through the post-season.
NBC Sports Predictor launched in December 2018 with Premier League Pick ‘Em as its first game, and has since expanded with NASCAR and Golf Pick ‘Em games and the Sunday Night 7 Football game.
Premier League Pick ‘Em continues with a contest every Matchweek through the end of the season and Golf Pick ‘Em returns in February at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. To participate in this week’s contests, click here.
To date, the NBC Sports Predictor app has more than 1.5 million downloads, more than 20 million contest entries, and has awarded more than $3 million in cash prizes to fans.
