The strategic partnership between SimWin Sports and Immutable aims to leverage Immutable’s expertise in the web3 gaming sector to enhance the virtual sports experience provided by SimWin. Immutable will provide strategic advisory services, marketing assistance, community building support, and virtual asset drops to SimWin Sports.
SimWin Sports’ initial release is SimWin Football, a blockchain-based platform that offers 24/7 virtual American football contests. The platform allows sports fans to participate in free-to-play or cash daily fantasy tournaments by drafting virtual players. These contests pay out as frequently as every 15 minutes, providing users with numerous opportunities to earn.
In SimWin Football, every team and player is a digital entity with unique business opportunities. Users can purchase rights to digital players and become Player Agents, who can train their players through coaching programs. Once a player is drafted onto a team, the Player Agent starts earning a weekly salary, performance bonuses, sponsorships, and a share of the revenue generated from fantasy sports based on their player’s popularity in drafts.
The platform also features celebrity-owned virtual teams, with notable figures like Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Jerry Rice, Marshall Faulk, Tracy McGrady, and LaMelo Ball operating their own teams in SimWin’s virtual sports leagues.
SimWin Sports’ founders, CEO/CPO David J. Ortiz and President and CMO Tom Goedde, have extensive experience in the gaming industry. Ortiz has contributed to hit games such as Madden NFL, Wayne Gretzky 3D Hockey, NFL Fever, and MLB The Show, earning multiple Game of the Year awards. Goedde has worked in various gaming disciplines and held positions at Humongous Entertainment, EA SPORTS, and DraftKings.
“Led by such experienced game veterans as David and Tom and backed by an impressive team of sports legends, SimWin is poised to revolutionize the world of fantasy sports,” said Andrew Sorokovsky, VP of Global Business Development at Immutable. “This is why we are extremely excited to offer Immutable’s extensive expertise to help them reach as many sports fans worldwide as possible and further accelerate the mass adoption of web3 gaming.”
Notable investors in SimWin Sports include Animoca Brands, 1Up Ventures, Dick Parsons (former NBC Universal and LA Clippers CEO), and David Levy (ex-head of Turner Networks).
Behind the scenes, SimWin operates as a coaching simulator, while the public-facing experience allows users to play fantasy sports 24/7/365. Fans can also become Player Agents and earn salaries for the players they represent.
“I am excited to announce our groundbreaking partnership with Immutable. Together, we are embarking on an unprecedented journey to revolutionize the gaming industry by combining SimWin’s cutting-edge Athletic Performance-AI technology, sports simulations, and fantasy gameplay with Immutable’s web3 expertise,” said David Ortiz, SimWin Founder and CEO. “This collaboration will bolster our web3 expertise to benefit SimWin players, and through our shared commitment to innovation, I am confident we will reshape the real money gaming landscape and usher in a new era of immersive, accessible, boundary-breaking experiences for sports fans around the world.”
SimWin Football offers a player training infrastructure where users can receive Gyms, Training Stations, Trainers, and Training Supplements through randomized asset packs. These assets can be used to increase various attributes of virtual players.
Ownership of SimWin players allows users to generate revenue through salaries, sponsorships, performance bonuses, and a share of the revenue generated by fantasy sports. This ownership-based framework enhances fan engagement and fosters a sense of community within the league.
SimWin Football utilizes an Athletic Performance AI (AP-AI) that combines a century of American football data, machine learning, and expertise in developing digital sports titles. The AP-AI, in collaboration with SimWin’s Hall of Fame coaches, simulates and presents the games, mimicking real strategies, play calling, and personnel packages.
SimWin Football’s first season is about to commence, with most players already drafted. Consequently, players will start earning money as soon as they are purchased through random pack drops. SimWin Sports plans to expand its web3 gaming offerings to include soccer, basketball, and cricket in the future.
