DALLAS, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jackpot Rising Inc., a provider of interactive solutions for real money tournaments and esports, announced today its partnership with Speedleague to create an immersive experience for the league's motorsports fans.
Jackpot Rising is developing an official Speedleague mobile game that will include replicas of Speedleague tracks built in locations around the world, including Tucson, Las Vegas, and the Bahamas.
The game will allow fans to digitally race the same challenging tracks as the pros. Jackpot Rising will further intensify that experience by incorporating its patented real-money tournament engine into the game.
Fans who are 18-plus years old and located in approved jurisdictions, which includes more than half of the U.S., will be able to use their skills to compete against others for real money — just like pro racers.
"Both Speedleague and Jackpot Rising are dedicated to delivering fantastic experiences that are unlike any other," said Jackpot Rising CEO and Founder William Webb. "By partnering and collaborating on this game, we'll give motorsports fans even more reason to be excited about Speedleague's great lineup of events."
"Speedleague is all about bringing new and exciting types of racing entertainment to our fans," said Brian Gale, Speedleague CEO and President. "The Jackpot Rising game will give motorsports enthusiasts a fun and exciting way to be engaged both during, and in between, our live race weekends."
In addition to featuring rally cars, off-road trucks, and UTVs, Speedleague recently announced its introduction of E/RACING, a revolutionary new motorsports series featuring electric-powered rally racing cars offering more power and torque than gasoline-powered versions. The E/RACING series will showcase Speedleague's engineering partnership with Vienna, Austria-based STARD (Stohl Advanced Research and Development).
Jackpot Rising launched its tournament platform earlier this year. Built to ensure player protection, security, compliance, and fairness, the platform can integrate jackpot tournaments into any game, including the company's own proprietary iOS and Android mobile games, custom branded games, and third-party game content.
As Speedleague continues its worldwide growth, Jackpot Rising will update the game and incorporate new race locations, tracks, vehicles, and stadiums that are added to the league. The release of the Speedleague game is scheduled for late 2017.
