[prMac.com] New York, New York - OysterLabs Publishing is proud to announce the release of Sports Bet, a groundbreaking new sports betting app for iOS. With a deep emphasis on social interactivity, multi-platform support, and elegant user experience, the app brings the rush of live sports betting to mobile.
Sports Bet allows users to bet on games and events in 5 professional sports leagues: the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, and MLS. With built-in, auto-updating schedules, users can quickly find upcoming games to bet on or place general bets on any of those leagues. Users can also adjust their settings to bet with either the entire Sports Bet community or just a few friends. Since all wagers are made with virtual points instead of money, users can experience all the excitement of betting without any of the financial risk.
One of the most noteworthy features of the app is its effort to foster a user base of honest competitors. Bet outcomes are determined not by a scoring API but by users' votes. Players can try to cheat the system, but those who do risk being slapped with dispute points, which may limit their ability to join bets in the future. Detailed point tracking and league rankings also help to ensure that the competition never dulls.
Unlike most social games that simply allow users to challenge each other one-on-one, Sports Bet enables users to compete on a more dynamic level. Going it alone remains an option, but users may also choose to team up with friends, form alliances, and even support each other by sharing points. With built-in chats and deployable powers such as bombs and jackass ears, users can also taunt, intimidate and weaken their opponents to gain a competitive advantage.
Sports Bet continues the series of asynchronous, turn-based games developed by the app's publisher, OysterLabs. Having built up a comprehensive back-end infrastructure and engaging user interface, the company is now expanding its portfolio of social multi-platform games aimed at the iOS/Android/Facebook community.
