Recently I went for brunch with some of my friends. While chatting about a bunch of things, ne of them said, “These days children have so many options to have fun. We were so unlucky in our times. All we had was some sports.” While this statement greatly surprised me because having access to sports and a place to practice those sports is such a luxury now, it also got me thinking about the fun options that kids really have these days.
Actually why just kids. The amount of fun options that adults have has also increased drastically. And given the issues of space, time and money, most of these options have been designed keeping that in mind. There are tonnes of game arcades, online activities and now, apps. All these help you have a good time sitting in the comfort of a one game parlour or even at home.
But then, if everybody is designing such games and it’s a usual occurrence then what’s new? How can somebody step the game up? Is it just about scoring points online and becoming the highest scorer? Is it just some about thrills of shooting a suspect on the screen? Is it only virtual and not connected to any of our real lives at all?
Smart and innovative companies have realized that people want more. They have realized that in order to satisfy customers who have a lot more options and are much more demanding, they need to offer much more. And which is what a company like Fat Cat is doing now. They have introduced a path-breaking game called Lucky 6.
This unique mobile game which is available for iOS and Android is not unique in its features but also in ts funding – it is a crowd funding game! The game itself is based fully on stock market and is a creative lottery-style game.
One just has to download the app on your android or iOS device ( can also be got from here). Next one has to sign up for the game following the simple steps and activation link. Once in the game, one has to enter the contest 30 minutes before it starts. Here, one selects 6 companies from the list whose scores you will check timely. Once you get a ticket (for each of the company selected) to monitor your selected brands performance you just need to remember that the performance is linked to actual results on the stock market. Each day once can select new six companies to keep playing the game.
If your selected six brands are in the list of top 6 performing brands on the ‘Game day’ then you win the lottery! The prizes are a jackpot of Rs.25 Lakh for the winner or a holiday trip to an exotic place for the top scorer, if there I no winner! That is not all, if you introduce a new player who ends up winning the jackpot, you get a hefty bonus too! Winners are declared swiftly an promptly!
