Major League Soccer (MLS) and MGM Resorts International have launched a new free-to-play prediction game offering players the chance to win up to $50,000.
Available on the official MLS website and mobile app, Predict 6 will challenge fans to correctly predict a set of questions for each six games.
The first question will be on the outcome of the game, while a second proposition style question will be based on other factors such as what team will score first or what will be the final score. Players earn points by making correct predictions, with fans able to create leagues to compete against their friends.
If a fan predicts all six match outcomes and correctly answers the six additional proposition questions, they could win a $50,000 grand prize. Should nobody win the main prize, the fan that accumulates the highest score each week will win $500 and other prizes.
Predict 6 will be powered by odds from BetMGM, the sports betting operator brand by the Roar Digital joint venture between MGM Resorts and GVC Holdings.
“We are always looking for new experiences for our fans that bring them closer to the game,” MLS senior vice president of media, Chris Schlosser, said. “Predict 6 builds upon our existing fantasy offerings to give fans a free, quick and easy way to both compete and showcase their knowledge of the League and our clubs with friends.”
MGM Resorts International president of interactive gaming, Scott Butera, added: “Predict 6 is a concept that will allow fans to engage with their favorite MLS teams in a way that they’ve never experienced before.
“BetMGM looks forward to providing this free-to-play game during the upcoming season to soccer fans, as well access to MGM’s world-class entertainment offerings and resorts.”
In March of last year, MLS entered into a multi-year strategic partnership with MGM Resorts and the Roar Digital joint venture. The agreement designated MGM Resorts as the first official gaming partner of MLS, with Roar the exclusive official sports betting partner of the league.
