SharpLink Gaming Launches New LeagueSafe Mobile App
SharpLink Gaming, a pioneer of targeted, data-driven fan activation and conversion solutions for the U.S. sports betting and iGaming industries, announced the successful launch of LeagueSafe’s new, highly rated mobile app, with over 16,000 downloads by fantasy sports players since the app’s debut in Google Play and the Apple App Store in early August.
Prior to the launch of the new mobile app, more than 600,000 users have subscribed to LeagueSafe’s services via its website, found at www.leaguesafe.com, which has processed more than three million transactions since its inception in 2008.
Acquired by SharpLink in connection with its merger with SportsHub Games Network in December 2022, LeagueSafe was created with the goal of simplifying and automating the last remaining hassle in private fantasy sports league administration: finance management. Since its founding, LeagueSafe has become the most trusted source for collecting and protecting season-long fantasy league dues and payouts of winnings via proven, secure online and mobile platforms.
LeagueSafe’s primary goal is to simplify fantasy league management for private fantasy league commissioners. In addition to empowering fantasy leagues to quickly and easily collect entry fee payments online and safeguard league fees throughout the season, LeagueSafe offers transparency of league finances to fantasy team owners, gives owners the opportunity to validate their commissioners’ intended payouts, and sends payment reminders to unpaid owners as the season approaches, alleviating many of the headaches league commissioners face as they organize their leagues. League commissioners can allocate payouts within hours of the end of the season, and league members can receive their winnings immediately using one of several payout delivery options. No credit card or bank account information is stored on the site or the new mobile app, and each transaction is a one-time event. LeagueSafe generates revenue through the collection of interest earned on the dues held in its wallet system. After the season ends, users can elect to leave their winnings in their wallets for future use or request payouts at any time. LeagueSafe supports players engaged in all fantasy sports, including fantasy football, baseball, basketball and hockey, with fantasy football comprising the largest audience of users.
The recently launched mobile app allows commissioners to create and manage their leagues and makes it easy for league members to view their league information and make entry fee payments online. Private fantasy leagues drafting in-person or online with their league mates can be paid up and ready for the season in a matter of minutes using the QR code-enabled invite system included with the app. The app also includes free-to-play games, including a weekly single player fantasy football prop game for the upcoming NFL season. Users who make the most correct selections from a group of 7-10 fantasy football themed questions each week are eligible for weekly prizes.
“With its proprietary audience of users and volume of collected entry fees both trending upward, LeagueSafe is expected to be a significant contributor to SharpLink’s future success, helping us to advance on our core objectives associated with audience aggregation, fan engagement and positive financial performance. The growth momentum behind LeagueSafe is a direct result of the concerted efforts of SharpLink’s collective business units working to expand awareness of LeagueSafe’s services among millions of U.S. sports fans, who love the social interactions and competition with friends, family, and co-workers, the low cost/high reward offered by fantasy sports gaming and the thrill of victory when they win,” Rob Phythian, Co-Founder and CEO of SharpLink, said.
Betr Introduces Real Money Fantasy Sports Vertical with Launch of “Betr Picks” Across US
Betr Holdings announced the launch of Betr Picks, a pick ’em style fantasy game to complement its existing real money and free-to-play online sports betting (OSB) product, Betr Sportsbook.
The simple and intuitive real money fantasy pick ’em experience allows users to select “More” or “Less” from a wide array of player projections to build a lineup with as few as 2 and up to a total of 8 players. Users have the potential to win up to 100x their initial entry if they get 8 picks correct. Betr Picks is now available in 24 jurisdictions (including California, Texas, Florida, Illinois, Georgia, and North Carolina) which collectively represent over half of the U.S. adult population, and the Company is planning to further expand its fantasy reach to at least 30 total jurisdictions by the end of 2023. The Betr Fantasy & Sportsbook app is currently available on iOS with plans to launch on Android soon. This launch marks the first time that sportsbook and fantasy will operate within a single app.
Fantasy sports is the latest extension of Betr’s real money gaming business, which already has an established OSB business with live operations in Ohio and Massachusetts and plans to launch OSB in Virginia in the coming weeks and additional jurisdictions in the months ahead. Betr Picks offers a differentiated pick ’em experience, including the ability to pick up to 8 players, higher payout multiples (up to 100x), and no pushes. Betr’s signature focus on simple and intuitive product design, along with its bespoke integrations with Betr Media, will further distinguish the Betr Picks experience from the broader fantasy sports gaming market.
“We are thrilled to expand the Betr Gaming business by introducing our real money fantasy sports vertical with the launch of Betr Picks. Betr Picks allows us to acquire and engage real money gaming users across the United States, enabling Betr Gaming to more fully capitalize on the nationwide presence of Betr Media for the first time, all while providing a complimentary pre-match experience to our in-play focused OSB product. We believe Betr Picks already features a strong core user experience relative to existing pick ’em products, and we have several material enhancements that will be released over the coming weeks and months including more sports, game modes, media integrations, deposit and withdrawal capabilities, and more,” Joey Levy, Founder and CEO of Betr, said.
