- SportCaller and BetMGM have collaborated to introduce daily quizzes for cash prizes.
- BetMGM quizzes will test bettors on their sports history knowledge.
- Winners of BetMGM Daily quizzes could stand to win $500.
LAS VEGAS — With the coronavirus pandemic shutting down sports across the globe, BetMGM and SportCaller are coming together to launch daily quizzes in order to keep fans engaged. These quizzes will be a single-elimination format and the prize money will be split accordingly.
These new quizzes will be held once a day on either of the online sportsbooks websites. They will be 10 question quizzes that range from historical sports knowledge and basic general knowledge.
Each person that is participating will have 10 seconds to answer the questions correctly. If they are not answered correctly or the person runs out of time then that person will then be eliminated as the rest of the participants move on.
The prize money at the end of the game is $500. That prize money will be split amongst those participants who made it to the end.
“We’re delighted to have increased SportCaller’s growing global influence in North America through this partnership with such a revered brand,” said Cillian Barry, the Managing Director of SportCaller.
“During this unprecedented sporting shutdown, it’s imperative to evolve and innovate responsibly, so that sports betting can adapt to the current climate. Our flexible platform, which allows us to quickly create and deploy topical trivia-quiz FTPs, neatly maps on to the conventional calendar for sport, going some way to filling the void for fun and entertainment during this challenging spell. Then, as this lockdown is lifted, sportsbook engagement can rebound all the stronger.”
For sports bettors who are interested in daily fantasy sports, this would be a great compromise. In daily fantasy a team of players is picked for the day and based on their performance, cash prizes could be won. In these quizzes, they are played once a day and based on how a person does, they could win cash prizes as well.
