Players can also test their sports knowledge of college football, English Premier League (EPL) and the National Football League (NFL) against that of their social network.

“One thing uniting all sports fans is a love of competition, and SKL fosters that spirit with a variety of mini-games and quizzes,” said Jason Manasse, CEO of AccuScore.“ Sport SKL ramps up this engagement with a wagering system that allows players to put up virtual currency in head-to-head challenges as well as synchronized poker-style table contests that provide a real-time environment for fans to cash in‘virtually’ on their sports savvy.”

As players progress through SKL, they will engage in a variety of mini-games, including:

????????? 4Cast– Sports devotees enter this mode to demonstrate their expertise in forecasting results and stats for upcoming games, challenging chums to out-pick them in a variety of statistical categories.

????????? Buzzer Beater– This game mode has fanatics wager against friends as both parties race against the clock to answer recent stat-based questions about their favorite teams.

????????? Poker-Style Table Mode– Future all-stars also can compete in real-time, free-for-all challenges, pitting five competitors against each other in a race to answer the most Buzzer Beater questions before the clock runs out.

With the introduction of Sport SKL’s newest league, the NBA, sports fans will have a new arena to showcase their savvy as they unlock in-game power-ups to bolster their insight into their favorite teams and jockey for position on the global leaderboards. After each victory, players receive SKL points, energy and coins, as well as the ultimate prize– bragging rights.
