FEBRUARY 25, 2015 – Washington, D.C.: Washington Capitals fans can now win right alongside the team with the launch of CapTrick, the all-new, official Caps fantasy hockey game at DailyMVP.
Open for play during all Capitals games – home and away, including the playoffs – CapTrick enhances the excitement of the live game for fans at Verizon Center, as well as for those following along from home. Prizes are awarded instantly at the end of every period.
Available exclusively through DailyMVP, CapTrick is available to play for free at DailyMVP.com/CAPTRICK, or through the DailyMVP app using the promo code “GOCAPS.” Fans can enter to play CapTrick before the start of a period by simply selecting three Caps players for their roster. At the end of each period, participants with the highest scores based on their players’ performances will instantly win in-arena prizes, such as concession and merchandise certificates, or earn Monumental Rewards points to redeem online for Capitals gear or tickets to future Capitals games.
Prize codes appear automatically on the fan’s phone and are also sent via email within a minute of the period ending and can be redeemed immediately. More than 60 prizes will be given away during each game. The CapTrick participant with the overall highest score across all three periods will win the grand prize of a $50 merchandise coupon or 5,000 Monumental Rewards points.
“Our fan and community support continues to be one of the very best in the NHL, and as an organization we are always looking to provide unique and engaging experiences for our fans,” said Jim Van Stone, Monumental Sports & Entertainment chief revenue officer. “TopLine Game Labs stood out as an innovative technology company that shared our vision and had the expertise to take the excitement of watching the Washington Capitals to the next level with an interactive fantasy gaming experience. We are thrilled to be the first NHL team to partner with TopLine’s fantasy sports brand, DailyMVP, and introduce CapTrick to our fans.”
