ePlay and acQyr eXchange Announce Partnership for Monetization of Sports and eSports Apps
New partnership creates first public exchange of game points and prizes for cash
ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE:EPY | OTC:EPYFF | FSE:2NY2) (the “Company”) today announced that it is partnering with acQyr eXchange, the first public exchange tracking and managing game rewards, prizes, and points gamers acquire in mobile and online games. The acQyr eXchange (QX) allows ePlay users to track, manage, and redeem points from Howie Go Viral, Big Shot, Fan Freak, Klocked, and more into cash on the QX mobile app.
ePlay will be one of the founding game partners on the QX platform, allowing ePlay’s existing and new games to offer users another reason to download and play. Points can be redeemed for cash on QX, but players have to earn them first.
ePlay and QX are also collaborating to create digital innovations for ePlay’s mobile games and virtual worlds including: Howie Mandel’s Howie’s Games, Robert Horry’s Big Shot Basketball, sports gambling app Fan Freak, and ePlay’s running app, Klocked.
“ePlay has a great lineup of sports, eSports, and entertainment games and apps that are fun to play,” says acQyr eXchange CEO, Jim Mulford. “Fun is fun, making money on QX for having fun? Well, that is exciting!”
ePlay and QX enables a mobile game like Fan Freak to reward loyalty and success with cash, lowering the barrier for sports gaming and broadening the audience base beyond loyal sports fans to include sports viewers, and casual sports and eSports fans. The agreement will lead directly to increased ePlay game revenues, increased retention, and opportunity to acquire new users at lower and lower costs.
“ePlay already engages users with challenges, great narrative, and fun to play game mechanics,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital. “With the QX platform we expect increased revenues, retention and lower acquisition costs as users play, pick, explore, predict, run, race, shoot, and, yes, infect Howie Mandel in Howie Go Viral, over and over again while earning real cash.”
ePlay Digital Inc. is a mobile game creator and publisher specializing in sports, esports and entertainment augmented reality titles, including their new augmented reality running app, Klocked.me, flagship title Big Shot Basketball and Howie Mandel mobile game collaboration - HowiesGames.com. ePlay is operated by an award-winning team of sports, gaming and eSports leaders as well as broadcast and digital technology industry experts, software engineers and athletes who have brought dozens of game titles to market for companies including Time Warner Cable, ESPN, Sony Pictures, AXS TV, Intel, AXN, Fiat, CBS, and others.
