StarzPlay Sports has announced the release of StarzPlay Fantasy Sports, an unprecedented free-to-play Web3 sports game in the MENA region. The SERIE A 2023/24 season will mark the first time the football prediction game is played. It will debut in 19 nations in the Middle East and North Africa region and will only be accessible through StarzPlay Sports.
By integrating Web 3.0 and blockchain technologies, StarzPlay Fantasy Sports represents a crucial turning point in the fantasy sports industry. As the SVOD platform continues to set the standard for providing its audience with distinctive and interesting content, StarzPlay Sports is establishing itself as a versatile entertainment hotspot. Thousands of hours of high-quality video, including the best Western, Arabic, and Turkish shows, anime, and live sports are currently available on the site.
Blockchain technology-powered game
Watching live games on StarzPlay Sports has an entirely novel experience thanks to the game. StarzPlay Fantasy Sports enables viewers to fully experience the excitement of live football matches by allowing them to anticipate scores in real-time for SERIE A matches and other regional leagues. The goal will be to increase user interaction with the matches. This would involve predicting results like scores and possession percentages and identifying the player who might score the opening goal inside the interactive arenas using intuitive in-game tools. Players will require their strategic acumen and draw from their football understanding for a chance to earn prizes, compete against friends, and move up weekly, monthly, and all-time leaderboards,
Players who make accurate predictions can win a variety of rewards. The in-game money STARZ$ is one of them. Despite being free to play, players can buy, sell, and exhibit NFTs in a real-time interactive marketplace using money. This will give them the tools they need to build a customized team and improve their predicted performance. Additionally, the currency may be exchanged for tickets to SERIE A games, football merchandise, platform subscription vouchers, and, the cherry on top, meet-and-greet events with football legends beginning with the upcoming 2024 Supercoppa Italiana finals in Riyadh. Players will also receive prizes from third-party sponsors. In essence, it will open up a new channel for businesses and advertisers to interact with site visitors.
The HTML5 game will be run via the Skale Network and organized in Amazon AWS in a serverless environment. This will make it possible to serve customers during busy periods and offer a consistent, excellent experience during matches.
