- The Minnesota Vikings have launched a new game on their team app.
- Pass or Play is a free-to-play game like fantasy football.
- The game was developed by SportsHub, a Minnesota-based game developer.
MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Vikings launched a free-to-play game called Pass or Play on Sunday. The game is available on the Minnesota Vikings mobile app.
Pass or Play is a game that is very similar to traditional daily fantasy sports (DFS). Each week, players will receive a randomly generated team. The app will fill positions such as quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends.
From there, the user will decide if they want to keep their lineup or not. They can pass on any player that is generated and hope for someone better to appear. Players can only pass three times a day. Once it is time for football games to play, players will score in a similar fashion to DFS. The game was developed by SportsHub, a game developer that is based in Minnesota.
“We’re really excited to launch this free-to-play game in the Vikings app,” said Scott Kegley, Vikings’ executive director of digital media and innovation. “The game combines luck and skill and is extremely fun and engaging for all age levels and appeals to fans with a wide range of knowledge about the NFL. The Vikings mobile app is already the best source for team news and helps fans when they come to a game at U.S. Bank Stadium. Hopefully, this provides fans with another reason to download the app and play the game.”
The Vikings are not just offering a new game to play. Players who score well on the leaderboards can win prizes. For each week, the top three players will receive a gift card to the Vikings’ official gift shop. Users with the best scores for the entire NFL season are eligible for a grand prize.
This new app will allow for the Vikings and the state of Minnesota to prepare for legal sports betting. Sports betting is not yet legal in Minnesota. But lawmakers are studying states like Iowa to see how they can create sports betting laws. This new app could allow lawmakers to see how interested Vikings fans are in sports betting.
