One of the largest providers of esports wagering products and associated technologies, Esports Technologies, has announced that their new app, Esports Games, is now available for Apple iOS devices, as well as being available to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
The announcement means that Apple customers can now join those that can access Google Play to download the Esports Games app. The app provides a number of features for users including predictions for tournaments and esports-based trivia games for fans.
Unlike some of the top 5 esports betting apps, this app is a free-to-play service.
That means it will sit alongside other must-have esports apps, including esports betting apps, live streaming apps and an esports betting odds tracker.
Users can download the new app on iOS devices in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
One Billion Potential Users
The move is a significant one for Esports Technologies as it attempts to expand the uptake of its Esports Games app. With more than a billion active iPhone users around the world, many of whom fall within the demographic for esports fans, it is an important step for the company as they seek to broaden the use of its app globally.
Developed in conjunction with Splash Tech, the Esports Games app allows users, once signed up, to test their knowledge in a number of different trivia contests.
In these contests, they can score points to improve their position on a global leader board.
The prediction game part of the app allows users to put their knowledge of several different esports to the test by predicting the outcomes of live esports matches. A variety of prizes are available to be won, equivalent in size to the prize pool of the tournament on which players are making their predictions.
Predictions include guessing the outcome of a match, predicting the final score of a contest, or how long a match will last.
The app covers trivia and predictions across a range of esports including League of Legends, Dota 2, CS:GO, Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Rocket League, Valorant, and Call of Duty and it offers something a little different to the standard type of mobile gaming app available today.
The move to broaden the app to include iOS devices was always a key moment in the life of Esports Games and this was confirmed by the COO of Esports Technologies, Bart Barden, who commented:
“We’re excited to bring our app to the entire esports community, regardless of mobile device or platform – and provide a new avenue for fans to engage with esports events in real-time. Feedback so far is that fans are excited to have an opportunity to make real-time predictions as to what could happen next during events and to prove their esports trivia knowledge with other fans.”
“We see this as a great addition to the esports community, recreating the tournament experience for fans watching the broadcasts at home.”
Adam Wilson, the CEO of Splash Tech who played a key role in the development of the app, was also enthusiastic about the move, stating:
“Esports Technologies’ vision is what makes it unique, and we couldn’t be prouder to be powering Esports Games, the world’s first dedicated free-to-play esports predictor app. Together we’re bringing esports to the mass market, raising awareness of one of the world’s fastest-growing sports categories.”
