"We're thrilled at the overwhelmingly positive response we've received since launching our iOS app," said Stephen A. Murphy, co-founder and CEO of Boom Shakalaka. "Boom isn't really a daily fantasy app, but rather a completely new way to experience sports. Since the app's launch, Boom players have placed over 3 million predictions."
The rise to the top of the App Store caps off a banner month for Boom; the company also set records for monthly active users, total entries, and new depositors in May.
"We're heading into the summer with a ton of momentum," said Assaf Einat, co-founder and CTO of Boom Shakalaka. "We have many fun and innovative features in the pipeline that will continue to make Boom a unique and unrivaled experience for fans."
Boom Fantasy can be played for free in all U.S. states. A real-money version is available to residents 18 or older in 30 states.
In addition to the App Store, Boom is available on Android and can be played at www.boomfantasy.com.
