In the article titled “Live sports gameshow app exclusive to Bay Area“, the article mentioned that even though Buccaneers fans don’t have a team still in the running, they can still have a lot to cheer for if the play Super Squares™ during the game.
Frank Maggio, a Pinellas County entrepreneur, and creator of Super Squares™ explained how the app “makes your cell phone part of the game. You can win cash, pizzas and even a car just for watching. And people in the Bay Area are getting first dibs. It’s being tested here exclusively, starting this Sunday.”
Maggio explained that when a football game goes to a commercial break that people’s eyes move to their phones and that he wants to create a way for people to want to watch advertising by making it fun. People pay attention to the game and to ads from the sponsors and then they answer questions and earn points. There are a total of 22 questions over 3 hours and you earn squares based on getting the answers correct. Then, you watch the score of the game and if your square matches the game score you earn more points and advance up the leaderboard.

TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) January 18, 2018
“Interactive advertising pioneer React is opening an exclusive beta test of the “Super Squares” live game show app that gives players real cash and prizes for answering live quiz questions about sports events, and the TV commercials that run during breaks inside the app. More than $50,000 in cash and prizes are on tap to be awarded over a three-weekend span, to up to 65,000 adult residents of the seven county greater Tampa Bay metropolitan region.
The patented technology was developed by long-time Tampa-area advertising innovator Frank Maggio, whose background includes inventing ReacTV®, the first live interactive game show for PC’s and smart phones synced to cable TV systems. Maggio’s passion for sports-related games date back to a windfall he claimed from an 1985 nationally publicized contest he solved, claiming over $20 million in prizes.
“The real challenge in TV advertising is reaching viewers who skip or ignore ads,” Maggio said. “With smart phones in the hands of over 80% of TV viewers, it’s just too easy to look away during breaks. This game solves that problem by transforming advertising into a fun game where people win real prizes and brands get the engagement they crave.”
