SKYLLZONE's Unique App Lets Users Instantly Compete Against Nine Computer Teams
NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SKYLLZONE(SM) today announced the launch of Fan vs. Machine(SM) Fantasy Basketball, a new fantasy sports app, available for iOS in the Apple App Store. Driven by a first-of-its-kind patented technology, Fan vs. Machine is an innovative fantasy basketball game that lets users instantly snake draft and compete against computers in a one day long contest. The game is free to play and offers cash prizes for beating the machine.
Fan vs. Machine was developed using SKYLLZONE's proprietary patented game technology that allows users to play against computer teams controlled by algorithms for draft strategy and draft pick selections. Computer teams allow for quick draft pick selections, eliminating the hassle and time commitment usually associated with traditional human-player snake drafts. Drafts can be completed in less than 10 minutes.
For the first time, users can play fantasy sports against computers instantly, on their own schedule and without a season long commitment. Designed specifically for mobile, Fan vs. Machine provides an authentic yet challenging fantasy snake draft experience. The snake draft format is the preferred mode of selection for 90% of the more than 33 million fantasy sports players in the USA, according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association.
"Fan vs. Machine is an intuitive app that lets individuals play fantasy basketball anytime anywhere. It's a new way to play fantasy sports, and no other company is offering this experience," said Mike Presz, Chairman of SKYLLZONE. "We've created an awesome product with a solid technological infrastructure and believe that it will appeal to both casual and hard core fantasy sports players. People who currently play fantasy sports will find Fan vs Machine to be a fun and natural transition into daily and weekly games. It is truly redefining the future of fantasy sports," Presz added.
Users can start drafting today on the newly launched iPhone app (iOS6/iOS7), the iPad (browser), or desktop by visiting http://www.skyllzone.com. They can play for free against the computer to win cash and compete against other humans in a global competition for additional cash prizes.
