OneUp Sports & the NFL's Mobile Game "NFL Connect" Elevates the Fan Experience during Live Playoff Games

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Jan. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The NFL Playoffs have gotten off to an exciting start, and with NFL Connect, football fans are turning every play in the live game into an opportunity to win big and get access to one-of-a-kind rewards.

NFL Connect is an innovative mobile game app that marries the simplicity of bingo with fantasy football and is played alongside live NFL games. The game offers users the ability to earn in-game credits to exchange for one-of-a-kind NFL fan experiences such as a video chat with NFL superstars Patrick Willis from the San Francisco 49ers and DeAngelo Williams from the Carolina Panthers.

NFL Connect brings fans to their feet, completely engaging them with the on-field action while they seek to score their first "Connect." Each user receives a unique game board of 16 live-game events ranging from touchdown to quarterback sack.  The board fills up as game action plays out in real-time, and users may swap or modify their board's events to improve their chances of "connecting" four event tiles in a row.   Along the way users interact with both their opponents and friends through the game's real-time social messaging feature.

"Through NFL Connect, we are getting football fans more involved with the action on their mobile devices," said Daren Trousdell, CEO of OneUp Sports. "The game's innovative style of play and engaging social features add a new dimension to watching the NFL Playoffs."

By placing first in the game, players earn credits that can be redeemed instantly for VIP experiences or unique player interactions. The simplicity of the game and social features make it perfect for any football fan, young or old.

"NFL Connect is a compelling game experience that will allow our fans to engage with the Playoffs in a new way," said David Healy, Director of Media Strategy and Business Development for the NFL. "We are excited to see the matchups play out both on the field and across fans' mobile devices through Super Bowl XLVIII." 

NFL Connect was one of the Top-25 sports apps this season and is part of the OneUp Sports network which connects users with millions of other passionate sports fans from around the world.  The Connect game platform has been successful at driving impressive mobile engagement across the portfolio of games it powers, with users spending upwards of 60 minutes per game and making over 50 million game moves during the over 30,000 live-events delivered to date.

NFL Connect is available to download for free on iTunes, Google Play and the Windows Marketplace. More information can be found at www.1up.me.

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
Data scientists must access high-performance computing resources across a wide-area network. To achieve cloud-based HPC visualization, researchers must transfer datasets and visualization results efficiently. HPC clusters now compute GPU-accelerated visualization in the cloud cluster. To efficiently display results remotely, a high-performance, low-latency protocol transfers the display from the cluster to a remote desktop. Further, tools to easily mount remote datasets and efficiently transfer...
