FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

LOS ANGELES, CA (FEBRUARY 25, 2019) - Ripkord.tv — a live audience-driven entertainment network that combines the best elements of mobile gaming, social interactivity, and traditional television — today announced the biggest interactive mobile game show prize purse ever offered. On March 13, 2019, players have the chance to win big from a potential prize pool of over $1,000,000 USD in Ripkord.tv’s original live hosted game show - In or Out!

Building further excitement leading up to this huge monthly prize package, Ripkord.tv is hosting weekly events every Wednesday, where $100,000 USD is on the line!

 

“Nobody’s done anything this big in the live social games space, and we are going big, offering players a chance at winning over $1 million dollars every month,” said Todd Peterson, CEO and co-founder of Ripkord.tv. “It’s a huge prize pool, and, with the way In or Out! is designed, our players start with a fifty percent chance of winning something right from the start, which is better than just about any other traditional game show or competition out there. Combine that with the fact that our games don’t require you to be a trivia genius, and you can see what makes us the go-to for competitive online game shows.”

 

Feeling lucky? Then In or Out is the game for you! Fire up the free-to-play game and pick a color — then watch the wheel spin. If it lands on your color, you must decide whether to stay IN or cash OUT. Stay in the game for hopes of a bigger payout, or split the current winning with other players that have cashed out and run... what do you do!? The choice is yours…

 

Winners must be over 18 years of age and restricted to the US and Canada with the exception of Quebec.

 

The Ripkord.tv app is available free for download from the Apple App Store for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 10.0 (or later), and Google Play for Android devices running version 4.4 (or later).

Ripkord.tv is a network designed for the viewer who wants to be an active part of the show. Viewers can directly interact with any of Ripkord’s five live game shows and their engaging show hosts daily during regularly scheduled programming, competing against others in the community for bragging rights and real-world cash prizes. Ripkord.tv’s current line-up of original live shows includes: Fast Facts, The Hunt, In or Out, Raise the Bar, and Word Up.
