Viggle’s 2nd Annual MYGUY Playoff Challenge is On!

Viggle (OTCQB:VGGL), the free mobile app that rewards entertainment loyalists for watching TV and listening to music, is offering Viggle users the chance to win a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey and meet Hall of Fame Quarterback Dan Marino in the MYGUY Playoff Challenge.

Marino, who is Commissioner of Viggle’s MYGUY, will also provide Viggle users with coaching tips and strategies to help them compete through this year's playoffs.

MYGUY is a real-time sports game played within the free Viggle application, available for iOS and Android devices, that allows users to select players throughout a broadcasted game and earn points based on that player’s actions. MYGUY knows what teams are playing when a fan is watching a football game on TV and automatically loads the appropriate rosters and game feed so users can make the best decisions and earn the most points. User’s Viggle Points are collected across MYGUY games and other Viggle experiences, and can be redeemed for real rewards at any time.

Now through January 19, the top scorer of a single playoff MYGUY game will win the MYGUY Playoff Challenge. The next four highest scorers will receive 500,000 Viggle Points and autographed merchandise from Dan Marino.

“I am excited to be working with Viggle and MYGUY fantasy football for the second year,” said Marino, a former Miami Dolphin quarterback and current broadcaster. “It’s amazing that a fantasy sports game will reward you for actually watching games live and making changes based on what is happening on the field – in real-time. And by playing, you get a chance to win every fan’s dream – a trip to the Super Bowl.”

“We’re thrilled to be working with Dan again, and to be sending another Viggle user to the Super Bowl this year,” added Greg Consiglio, President and COO of Viggle. “Our users had a great time playing the Playoff Challenge last year so we expect this year's competition to be just as exciting. MYGUY is easy for anyone to play and win since it's free and requires absolutely no commitment.”

The MYGUY Playoff Challenge winner will receive accommodations, airfare and the prize of two Super Bowl tickets, to be awarded on January 23. The grand prize package includes:

  • Airfare from points in the contiguous 48 states
  • Four-night hotel accommodations at the Hilton Garden Inn New York/Chelsea
  • Access to the Super Bowl Pre-Game Party hosted by PrimeSport
  • Official Super Bowl XLVIII Souvenirs
  • Round trip game-day transportation to MetLife Stadium
  • Meet and greet with Dan Marino

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
