The business’s wishing to take advantage of the upcoming football period, which is simply a couple of weeks away. In fantasy football, fans pretend to be general managers of virtual football teams that make use of real NFL gamers. Every week, they try to draft and make trades with various gamers. However Hitpost’s ballot app helps remain fans considering fantasy football every day.

‘This is a way to keep fantasy gamers engaged throughout the week,’ said Aaron Krane, who’s the business’s chairman and co-founder.

It likewise pairs well with the company’s other app, Sports Bet, which is an app that lets friends make bets with virtual currency on basketball, hockey, baseball, football and soccer games. While players can purchase virtual currency to make wagers, they can’t cash out, so it does not break any real-money video gaming regulations in the U.S. Krane said the business has yet to become cash flow profitable off virtual currency deals in its games.

Krane, who’s a background in social gaming from working at early Facebook developer Slide, started the company as a means to use mechanics from the gaming world to sports and find an unexploited sweet spot in between freemium titles like Zynga Poker and sports media. With that angle, they raised $2 million in a round led by Floodgate in April of in 2012.
