ePlay mobile games (Big Shot Basketball and Big Shot Swish for Apple iPhone) have reached the Top 10 in the Sports Game category in the Apple App Store within weeks of their marketing release in 21 different countries. The company expects Big Shot Basketball for Google Play to perform even better. Other mobile games will join Big Shot Basketball and Big Shot Swish in Google Play, Apple App Store, and other app stores throughout 2019.

"Android devices are used more in some countries and with certain users such as sports fans," says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay. "Being able to amortize marketing and customer acquisition costs across platforms and audiences is a key milestone and we expect to more than double the higher than expected off-season average daily download rate with the release of Big Shot Basketball for Google Play."

Big Shot Basketball for Google Play earns revenue through eSports, advertising and in-app purchases - sneakers, t-shirts, and skins for avatars. Lenedu.com found nearly 59% of Fortnite users surveyed spent an average of USD$84.67 on their avatars and other in-app purchases. Early tests with Big Shot show each user is spending an average of 7.4 units of in-game currency per 20 days to play in Big Shot eSports challenges. If each in-game unit was worth USD $1, eSports revenue for the last 2 weeks of August would have exceeded USD $100,000. Further tests and product enhancements will help the company determine ongoing eSports revenue in USD and the same for advertising and in-app purchase revenue.
