FireFan Review Intro
Firefan includes live play with games in the NFL, NBA, MLB, college football and basketball.
What is FireFan?
FireFan is based on a new gaming platform called sports interaction. It is another gamification of live sports data that many high end investors knew about months ago. This includes Michael Jordan, Mark Cuban, and Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Wizards. They had made investments of over $44 million with Sportradar, one of the leading live sports data providers. Companies like Draft Kings and Fan Duel all use gamification data to run their live billion dollar operations. Now the mobile app world is catching up to take the other 70% of potential target players who do not want to gamble with real money and who do not fancy fantasy sports.
How Do You Play FireFan?
The gameplay involves a prediction model where the player is asked a question during the lives games on what action will happen. Questions can vary from simple ones such as “Who will win the game” to “How many passing yards will a quarterback have in the second half?” New questions pop up with a notification mostly during change of possessions for NFL games. There are usually 4-5 questions per change of possession, and each question can offer different amount of points for correct answers. The social aspect is also highly emphasized, as they attempt to be the “Facebook of the sports app world.” You will be able to chat, form group games, leagues and teams. Players will compete in game with friends and celebrities alike, and earn lifetime achievement points. These points may also be redeemed at a later date for prizes such as sports gear, game tickets, electronics and even a brand new car. The rewards system works very similarly to the current ones in place by American Express, MasterCard and Visa credit cards. It gives added incentive for an already competitive sports fan base to play more often, and that benefits everyone.
Is FireFan Free to Play?
FireFan operates under the freemium model, just like Candy Crush, Angry Birds and Clash of Clans, which has been highly successful in recent years. Each of these companies make well over $1 billion revenue per year, millions of dollars every day. Almost all their revenue comes from ads, and some come from in-app purchases and upgrades. This is the current and future world of mobile apps and possibly other platforms. They are targeting sports, the single most engaging activity that bonds the world with over 6 billion fans.
All basic gameplay can be free by watching ads or partaking in certain actions that may or may not cost money. Tokens to play more games can always be purchased in the built in store with varying amounts of quantities.
We will release another FireFan review update when the app reaches its next level of updates and even more celebrities have possibly joined.
