Las Vegas Aviators fans will have the chance to “Be a Baller” with exclusive access to the PLAYSTUDIOS Club Level and play “Bingo Beer” with the all-new myVEGAS Bingo
LAS VEGAS – Award-winning mobile game developer PLAYSTUDIOS is taking fans out to the ballgame this summer, partnering with Las Vegas Ballpark® – home of the Las Vegas Aviators® professional baseball team, Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics – for a pair of interactive all-star promotions that will leave them feeling like MVPs.
During this season, fans in attendance can take part in the “Be a Baller” promotion, in which a few lucky fans will be able to swap their seats for exclusive access to the PLAYSTUDIOS Club Level at Las Vegas Ballpark, a VIP lounge with an elevated experience, full-service bar with specialty cocktails, in-seat waiter service, and wider, air-ventilated seats from which to watch the game. The excitement begins when fans hear the words, “It’s time to see who will be a baller” over the public address system and Lil’ Troy’s “Wanna Be a Baller” blasts throughout the ballpark. Fans will know they have won when a winning seat number is revealed on the main video board. Their ticket will get them into the Club Level, where they can celebrate with complimentary food and beverages for the rest of the game.
Also coming for the 2021 season: “myVEGAS Bingo Beer” based on the all-new myVEGAS Bingo mobile app. Fans entering the ballpark will receive a bingo ball card courtesy of PLAYSTUDIOS. During the game, they will hear the PA announcer say “It’s time to play Bingo Beer!” and watch as animated myVEGAS Bingo balls race to the top of a beer glass on the main video board. When the winning ball rises to the top and is revealed through the “foam” the fans with the matching letter and number will win a free beer!
“In just two years, Las Vegas Ballpark has earned a reputation as the best stadium in the minor leagues and a destination for Las Vegas locals who want to see a winning team on the field,” says PLAYSTUDIOS Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer Andrew Pascal. “We are incredibly proud to continue our relationship with the ballpark, introduce our exciting new myVEGAS Bingo app to fans, and give them an opportunity to feel like winners off the field!”
Las Vegas Ballpark, winner of Ballpark Digest’s 2019 “Ballpark of the Year” Award, will welcome fans back for the 2021 season beginning Thursday, May 6.
“The ballpark is a place that brings people together, just like the PLAYSTUDIOS family of apps, and we can’t wait for fans to celebrate the return of baseball with these innovative, exciting new promotions,” says Las Vegas Aviators® General Manager and Vice President of Sales & Marketing Chuck Johnson. “We are tremendously proud to partner with another Las Vegas original going into our second season.”
Players can download and play myVEGAS Bingo and the rest of the PLAYSTUDIOS family of mobile apps – myVEGAS Slots, myKONAMI Slots, myVEGAS Blackjack, and POP! Slots – free on iOS, Android, and Kindle devices.
