Before the end of 2019, the company launched a robust predictive-gaming platform with partner NBCSports Washington. During the NFL preseason, predictive gaming appeared on Washington Redskins broadcasts, inviting the live-viewing audience to predict the outcome of games, drives, and plays, with users gaining points and appearing on live-broadcast leaderboards. Top players won cash prizes for their predictive accuracy. This successful predictive-gaming integration with the regional sports network has been added to NBA broadcasts, with 20 Washington Wizards games featuring predictive gaming throughout the current season.
