The game offering ball by ball betting has already witnessed a download of 50,000 in the pilot stage, with its popularity set to grow during the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The game is seeing traction across all geographies in India, especially in the age group of 25 – 35 years.

Play Games24x7 CEO Trivikraman Thampy said, “Ultimate Games is focusing on developing games that appeal to the sensibilities of Indians. With the launch of Ultimate Bet – Cricket, we have taken cricket watching experience to the next level by giving cricket fans a chance to not just watch but also engage with friends during the match, especially in this IPL season.”

During a live match, players can make real time bets per ball and also earn virtual chips. The app will soon introduce exciting features like bet per over and bet per match. Players can also invite their friends through social networking site Facebook and messaging app WhatsApp and earn virtual chips in return.  Additionally, they can also participate in five over betting tournaments and play against the best players in the country.

Ultimate Games was established in 2015 in Bengaluru, with the goal of introducing localized freemium mobile games that Indians have grown up playing. The current focus at Ultimate Games is on the hugely popular social casino category with games like Ultimate Teen Patti, Ultimate Rummy and Ultimate Poker. Ultimate Teen Patti is amongst the top five grossing games on the Google Play store. In the last one year, the Ultimate Games banner has recorded a cumulative two million downloads for all the games put together. It owes its success to super smooth playing experience, multi-lingual content, low battery consumption, and most importantly optimum internet data consumption while playing the game.
