American social games developer GameLoot Incorporated has premiered its first offering, which allows casual sports fans to compete for free in hopes of winning virtual currency.
Also called GameLoot, the new offering currently offers contest focused on Major League Baseball, NASCAR, golf and Major League Soccer with English Premier League football due next month followed by National Football League and college football in September.
“We’ve taken the best parts of fantasy sports and tailored it to today’s fast-paced life,” said Jeremy Shea, CEO for Las Vegas-based GameLoot.
“Casual fans who want to compete against their friends but don’t have the time or desire to analyse players and stats each week can experience the thrill of the win with our easy-to-play platform.”
GameLoot stated that players are offered the chance to win or purchase Loot virtual currency, which can be used to enter additional contests, participate in special promotions and ‘engage in deeper social interactions within their social networks and the GameLoot community at large’.
“GameLoot does not require the extensive knowledge of player stats that traditional fantasy sports leagues demand,” read a statement from the Nevada firm.
“With the company’s patent pending Quick-Pick engine, the playing field is leveled to provide casual fans with a rewarding experience. Participants have the option of selecting their own roster through the site’s 2-Minute Drill or utilising the Quick-Pick feature to have players selected for them. The simple experience allows anyone up to the challenge to compete with family, friends and colleagues for Loot and bragging rights.”
