The European Tour has launched a new gaming app, European Tour Picks, which has been developed in partnership with app developer, Low6.
Released in time for this week’s ACCIONA Open de España, the free-to-play pick’em style app will give away a £1,000 jackpot across each day of the tournament.
Users will be tasked with answering a set of questions, including the outright winner of the tournament and who will make the most birdies and who will hit the longest drive for that day’s play. Each correct score accumulates points; the higher the number of points you score, the further up the leaderboard you move and thus a bigger chance of winning a share of the prize-pot. The app is available on IOS and Android, with further information on how to get involved available at europeantourpicks.com.
Speaking about the launch Stuart Martin, Head of Sport at Low6, said; “We are very excited about the launch of European Tour Picks as we move into the golf space for the first time, partnering with one of the world’s most prestigious professional golf tours to provide users with a fantastic golfing Pick Em’ experience.”
Guy Kinnings, Deputy CEO and Chief Commercial Officer of the European Tour added; “We are always looking at ways to enhance the fan experience and golf, with the amount of data available on every shot on every hole, offers a wealth of opportunity for gaming. Low6 were a natural partner as we launch our first ever pick’em app because of the number of sporting organisations they already work with. We look forward to offering exciting prize funds to lucky winners this week.”
