Kings to begin “call the shot” gaming on mobile app

NBA team the Sacramento Kings will add “call the shot” predictor games on its app. The franchise will be the first in the NBA according to the Sacramento Bee to add such a game. The game being conducted in partnership with MGM Resorts International and Xperiel, will be available through the Kings app.

“We are committed to exploring new ways that technology can be used to engage with fans as they consume and interact with the game,” Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé said in a statement. “The future is experiential and we are proud to lead the way in continuing to redefine the fan experience with this innovative and interactive platform.”

MGM Resorts signed a multi-year agreement with the NBA last year.

“Call the Shot” allows fans via the app to predict the outcomes of game quarters and player performances for prize money at no cost.
