Fox Sports have released a new free game across the United States that offers NFL and college football fans the chance to win a jackpot of $250,000 each week throughout the season. The game is available exclusively on the Fox Sports Super 6 app.
This is partly due to the partnership attained between Fox and Gambling powerhouse The Stars Group. This partnership has seen the rise of a new online gambling platform that has been launched across New Jersey and Pennsylvania branded as FOX Bet.
The game comes exclusively in the form of an app that can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play Store. The app is only available from the US app marketplaces. Other territories will find themselves restricted from playing.
The game can be played by anyone above the legal age to gamble (jurisdiction dependent) in the states, with the exception of Washington.
How do you play FOX Sports Super 6?
The game itself consists of 6 predictions that have to be made by the user. These predictions can be made up of any element within the NFL or college game. For example here are some recent questions users have been required to predict;
- How many total points will be scored in the first quarter?
- Which Player will have the most rushing/receiving yards in the 1st half?
- How will the 1st touchdown of the second quarter be scored?
- What will be the length of the first drive in the 2nd half?
- How many total points will be scored in the game?
- Which team will win and by how many points?
Users are presented with six options to choose from for each question asked. Anyone lucky enough to get all six correct will then be in for a share in the $250,000 jackpot.
What do FOX Sports get out of it?
As previously mentioned Fox Sports have launched a new gambling product, with the aid of a partnership with The Stars Group (TSG). TSG owns the brands Betstars and Pokerstars, as well as also having a partnership with SkyBet in the UK.
Skybet offers a similar game whereby users are required to predict 6 score lines from Premier League soccer games in order to compete for the jackpot prize. This is also known as the Super 6 in the UK.
Skybet uses this game to get their brand name out there in the public domain, as the game attracts over 1 million users each week. They also cleverly attach match odds against users predictions within the super 6 app in an attempt to attract the user to then bet on their selections from the Skybet app.
The apps are entwined so that users can quickly sign up and place bets they may well not have done had they not played the Super 6 app. See the images below taken from the Skybet app in the UK to provide a better idea of what I am referring to.
Very few states are geared up and ready with online gambling so it may well take some time before users will be presented with any type of betting offers until such a time when online gambling licenses are issued within that particular state.
If you are lucky enough to be in either New Jersey or Pennsylvania then keep your eyes peeled for offers and promotions being displayed on the app in the near future. There may well be some exclusive betting offers available within your state waiting to be claimed!
When are the games?
Games are held each week with plenty of notice provided on the app as to when the next game will go live. So be sure to regularly visit the app if you do not want to miss out on any of the free games available.
