etBet, a developer of play-by-play second screen experiences, today announced the launch of its free-to-play social sports website and app to enhance watching live sports. JetBet is a ‘lean in’ experience that allows sports fans play along with the game via smartphones, tablets or on a browser, making live sports more engaging and fun.
Unlike fantasy football tournaments or apps, JetBet enables fans to play along with actual live sporting events as the action happens, demonstrating their knowledge of the team by predicting every play, possession or full game result. Players can predict plays, yardage gained, penalties, turnovers, and more in a dynamic experience powered by JetBet’s world-class sports analytics.
JetBet is intuitive enough for players of all skill levels to earn bragging rights, though true fans more knowledgeable about their players, teams, and the game will have an advantage. There’s even a chat feature to taunt your opponents.
“People are really passionate about their sports and favorite teams,” said Louis Castle, CEO of JetBet. “We make it easy and fun to share that passion, whether it’s playing along with friends on the couch or in our online tournaments with other fans.”
JetBet currently includes NFL games, with plans to expand into additional sports in the future.
