Two Free-To-Play Games Powered by Bally’s Technology Launched at FantasyFishing.com
TULSA, Okla. (Jan. 20, 2022) – Major League Fishing (MLF), the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, announced today the launch of two new free-to-play games, powered by Bally’s Technology. These games offer fans a chance to engage with MLF competition and win great new fishing gear and fishing experiences of a lifetime with Major League Fishing anglers. Both games can be found at FantasyFishing.com.
Phoenix Boats MLF Fantasy Fishing Presented by Abu Garcia allows players to select a team of 10 anglers for each Bass Pro Tour and Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit event, earning points based on how many pounds of bass their anglers catch. Players can create and join private leagues to compete against friends and family, then watch the live streams and SCORETRACKER leaderboard to watch their team racking up the points. After an extremely successful pilot at the final Bass Pro Tour event last season, the Fenwick MLF Predictor Game Presented by Mercury – which challenges players to predict the outcome of various questions in conjunction with Bass Pro Tour events – will also return.
Top prizes for Fantasy Fishing include an all-expense-paid fishing trip with Bass Pro Tour angler Justin Lucas to the season-long winner on the Bass Pro Tour, an all-expense-paid fishing trip with Bobby Lane to the season-long winner on the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit, and new Abu Garcia rod and reel combos to the overall top 25 point-scorers in each Bass Pro Tour and Pro Circuit event. The top scoring player in the Predictor Game season-long standings will receive an all-expense paid trip with Edwin Evers, and the overall top 25 point-scorers in each Bass Pro Tour Predictor event will receive a new Fenwick rod.
MLF worked closely to develop the games with SportCaller, a leading global B2B free-to-play game provider and Bally’s Interactive, a division of Bally’s Corporation that operates the omni-channel provider’s sports betting, iGaming, free-to-play, and daily fantasy sports platforms. The launch of the two free-to-play games marks the next phase in the partnership between MLF and Bally’s. Additional games and offerings for MLF and the Bass Pro Tour will be announced in the future.
