Free to play app combines fantasy football and pack openings

Low6 launches UltimateFan, a fantasy football subscription-based app for The 2020 UEFA European Football Championship.

The new and exciting mobile application, which is free to play, combines pack openings, fantasy football and non-fungible tokens. Cash prizes worth £125,000 can be won throughout the Championships.

UltimateFan releases pack drops which reveal players in the form of cards for users to build and manage their lineups. Cards are then graded in terms of player abilities, with players ranked as either Gold or Base. Users will use the cards to create lineups which earn points based on real life player and team performances. If a user is unhappy with their cards, they can then trade their cards through our UltimateFan marketplace with others on the platform.

For those committed to getting the winning squad, UltimateFan+ subscription packages are available in Gold and Silver which guarantee a certain number of gold players per pack drop.

Jamie Mitchell, Low6 co-founder, said: “We believe that UltimateFan is the next iteration of fantasy sport. The excitement of pack openings coupled with fantasy team selection and management make UltimateFan a game not to be missed this championship.”

As seen through its partnerships with the YouTube and Instagram influencer community, ‘live pack openings’ and player pack games have proved to be very popular among next-gen sports fans. By ensuring that UltimateFan takes a community-led approach, Low6 believes that it can capture the attention of millennials and Generation Z sports fans.

“We paired the excitement and thrill you feel when you open up your EA Sports FIFA packs with the ever-so popular Fantasy Football game,” added Josh Turk, CMO of Low6.

“Fan-first experiential gamification is the founding building block to all games/apps we create, driving community-led acquisition through shared passion among our user base.”

The release of UltimateFan will build upon Low6’s successes in the last year, with the company amassing more than 160,000 new users already – growth which has largely been driven by the flagship Picks product released during the last football season.

Due to run parallel with UltimateFan during the UEFA EUROs this month, Low6’s Weekly7 – in collaboration with Uber Eats UK – plans to keep players engaged with a £5 voucher and a chance to win £1,000,000 in their free score predictor contest.

Meanwhile UFC Picks – the official UFC pick’em app of the UK and Ireland – has remained popular for avid MMA fans as they seek to compete in a £5,000 free-to-play pick’em contest for each major UFC event this year.

Premium sportswear brand Castore is the headline sponsor of UltimateFan. UltimateFan+ Gold subscribers enjoy a 30% discount on their next order and Silver subscribers a 15% discount.

Sports gamification innovators develop technology to incorporate non-fungible tokens (NFTs) into their white-label iGaming products

Sports gamification leader Low6 Limited Inc (Low6), today announced the introduction of NFTs to their class-leading fantasy gaming product, UltimateFan.

The highly innovative inclusion of NFTs into mobile gameplay—whereby NFTs can be simultaneously held within the ecosystem of a game and a user’s crypto wallet—offers a new frontier of possibilities for sports teams, betting operators and affiliates looking to expand into  the blockchain space.

Low6’s suite of white-label iGaming products have been developed for some of the biggest names in sports, gaming and mobile technology, including the PGA Tour, UFC, Uber Eats and Points Bet.

With its brand-new UF Coach feature, Low6 has now introduced NFTs to UltimateFan gameplay. UF Coach bridges the divide between fantasy sports and NFTs, via a groundbreaking consolidation of in-game and out-of-game structures. This unique dual utilisation of NFTs will bring value within the crypto market, while simultaneously adding a new dimension to gameplay.

“The introduction of NFTs to UltimateFan is a natural progression, an incredible value proposition to our users, and a big step forward for fan-first experiential gamification” says Jamie Mitchell, Low6 CEO and Co-Founder.

“The evolution of the UltimateFan product, and its unbridled success in UK and North American markets, are emblematic of the innovation and forward-thinking approach upon which Low6 prides itself.

“Our strategy of introducing NFTs to fantasy gameplay keeps us at the forefront of sports gamification, adding an exciting new realm of potential for our partners and affiliates.”

For its trailblazing approach and next-generation gamification breakthroughs, Low 6 won the ”Virtual and Fantasy Operator” and “Rising Star” Awards at the 2021 EGR Operator Awards, and best “Freeplay Gaming Supplier” at the EGR North America Awards 2022.
