SitNPlay Games announced that it has expanded the open beta for its platform that enables players to create ad-hoc eSports competitions for real money prizes.
SitNPlay Games recently graduated from the MIT Play Labs accelerator program while securing seed funding from Play Labs, Seraph, NorthBay, and investor Rajeev Surati to fuel company growth. In August 2018, the initial open beta launched featuring the popular eSports multiplayer first-person shooter game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). Since the open beta started, more than 10,000 players have created over 15,000 ad-hoc matches and 1,000 tournaments to win real money prizes. eSports semi-pros and enthusiasts from around the world are invited to join the growing open beta.
More than 10,000 players in the open beta have already launched over 15,000 ad-hoc matches and 1,000 tournaments to win real money playing competitive CS:GO, with more eSports enthusiasts invited to join today.
SitNPlay Games’ platform enables players to create lobbies to play on-demand matches anytime, anywhere. eSports players can then seamlessly create free and pay-to-enter competitive matches, leagues and tournaments for real money prizes. The platform also provides tournament matches, gaming server rental, giveaways and league management.
Leandro Gabrielzyk, CEO and co-founder of SitNPlay Games, said: “The billion-dollar eSports market attracts a large segment of enthusiasts who aspire to be paid professionals, but don’t yet have the skillsets to compete above the amateur level in order to monetize their time and skills. Less than 1% of the world’s top eSports players actually achieve professional status and can make a full-time income from competing. We are serving the millions of aspiring eSports players around the world with a seamless solution to compete and earn real money prizes for their skills.”
Riz Virk, executive director of MIT Play Labs, said: “As eSports has grown and evolved as an industry, opportunities have quickly emerged for innovative technology to progress and capture its full market potential. SitNPlay Games is enabling a massive segment of enthusiasts to compete and monetize with its eSports competitive play platform, and I look forward to how the platform will evolve and grow in the coming months.”
SitNPlay Games offers eSports players a robust platform for launching competitive matches and tournaments on a global scale, including:
• Ad-hoc Matches: Challenge players to put more at stake and get rewarded with real money. Create challenge matches and wait for an opponent to accept. Win and receive prizes that can be cashed out with real money.
• Tournaments: Play in knockout rounds. The round winners advance to the next stage, until only one player is the overall winner of the tournament, receiving the title of champion and a real cash prize.
• Server rental: Rent CS:GO servers anytime in order to practice without hassle and no long-term commitments. Players only pay for what is needed. It’s easy to rent a server and there is no setup fee.
• Giveaways: Win prizes that are given away to active players. The more active a player is, the higher chances are to win.
