MSG Networks Launches New Free-to-Play Pick ‘Em App
MSG Networks has launched a new free-to-play app, MSG Networks Pick ‘Em, which is now available to download on iOS and Android in the Apple App and Google Play Store. The new prediction gaming app, developed in partnership with Boom Sports, will feature pick ‘em style NBA and NHL contests and offer fans the chance to win real cash prizes based on the accuracy of their selections, starting with last night’s Knicks vs. Magic game.
The NBA pick ‘em contests will consist of a series of predictive questions based on upcoming Knicks games, ranging from the team’s total points, the player to score first and more. The contestants that correctly answer all questions for that game will win or split the grand prize of $10,000. If there is no jackpot winner, $100 will be awarded each game to the contestant or, in the case of a tie, shared amongst those contestants, with the highest point total.
The NHL contests within the app will begin in April and include separate pick ‘em contests for every Rangers, Islanders, Devils and Sabres game, with each individual contest featuring a $1,000 progressive jackpot. For each game, fans will make several different predictions, such as the player to score the first goal, the number of total goals each team will score in each period and more. If no one correctly makes all picks on any given night, the $1,000 prize will be added to the jackpot for that team’s next game. If there is no jackpot winner, $100 will be awarded each game to the contestant or, in the case of a tie, shared amongst those contestants, with the highest point total.
In addition to the announced NBA and NHL contests, the app will feature additional contests with other teams and sports in the coming months. Official rules, scoring, prize and other information for MSG Networks Pick ‘Em are available within the app.
