VRstudios debuts monthly cash prizes for ‘Hoops Madness’ VR basketball
VRstudios, a leading creator of turn-key multiplayer Virtual Reality (VR) attractions for Location-Based Entertainment (LBE) businesses, is debuting a monthly tournament for cash prizes for play of “Hoops Madness” VR basketball on the company’s unattended VR attraction, the FURY, beginning in July 2022.
VRstudios is sponsoring the monthly prize pool, with $1,000 up for grabs among the top “Hoops Madness” Shootout player scores in July. The tournament is enabled by VRStudios’ Scorecard, an easy-to-use cloud-based player app accessible on a mobile browser, that includes profile management, a record of play history, and display of tournament scoreboards. All players with a Scorecard account are automatically eligible to compete for the prize pool.
Kevin Vitale, CEO of VRstudios, said: “The VRstudios FURY Hoops Madness Tournament gives FEC operators an easy program to attract guests of all types – basketball fans, arcade gamers, and VR enthusiasts alike – to get in the game with a unique immersive VR basketball experience.”
“Operators can also build on it with additional local events and promotions to drive new revenue from players and spectators.”
Easy for Operators
FURY operators just need to put up simple how-to signage provided by VRstudios and make sure the FURY is connected to the Internet so players can associate their scores with their cloud-based Scorecard profile and automatically be eligible to win.
Easy for Players
It’s as easy as 1-2-3 for players to create an account, play, and claim their score:
- Sign up – Create a free Scorecard account once or sign in
- Play Hoops Madness Shootout – Post your best scores by making the most baskets before the
clock runs out!
- Claim Your Score – Capture the QR code on-screen right after the game
The FURY is VRstudios’ arcade-easy and operator-friendly VR attraction that is unattended with two player positions in a small 32 sq. ft footprint. It is built for FECs with rugged, battle-tested, high-performance industrial design from VRsenal as seen in nearly 500 amusement locations.
The FURY comes with “Hoops Madness”, VRstudios’ immersive VR Basketball experience with multiple game modes to keep repeat play exciting. The FURY attracts a wide audience of sports fans, casual players, and spectators. Additional VR sports titles for the FURY are in progress.
