Allowing Users to play in head to head basketball related games, tournaments, sweepstakes, contests and promotions with prize indemnity insurance.
When was the last time you had someone call one of their friends and beg them to play a game that your company had sponsored? That kind of direct viral interaction is the most coveted form of consumer interaction, especially when it leads to direct purchases. An interactive ad in Facebook, Instagram, Snap, TikTok, LinkedIn, Twitter, and other top social platforms is not bringing two consumers together through viral connection, even if one passes it to a friend, they are not connected. These games generate the same brand impressions that an ad in social media would generate, with one clear exception….
When a consumer is looking at your brand while they are playing a fun, highly habit forming game, the brand impressions you are making are much more valuable and appreciated. In Sizzle, there are no advertisements in our games. Instead, consumers will look through a list of ten prizes and select four prizes that they wish to play for. This creates market research for your brand. At the end of the game, the consumer arbitrarily either wins a prize or they receive an offer of your choosing for them to receive a discount on purchasing your goods, services, experiences or more.
Augmented reality basketball games enable one friend to invite another friend to join them in a virtual shooting match with ten shots each. Both players take their ten shots with score being tallied.
Players have opportunity to use an interactive verbal smack talk feature to further the rivalry during the game.
Multiple variations of the game include using your product as the stand to hold the hoop and net, and for those who crave super powers, there is skyscraper basketball in Sizzle Shots™.
Connect winners into a sports ladder to enable the user to rise up in the ranks and play against other winners for their chance to win a grand prize.
Sizzle Basketball™ may be produced with your product as the support for the basket and net, creating even more vibrant brand impressions.
For those who crave super powers, Sizzle Shots™ Skyscraper edition allows you to take shots 20 stories up. Skyscrapers not included.
Stand out from the competition with insurance that allows you to offer a large prize risk-free, for a premium that is a fraction of the prize value (in situations where the prize is not guaranteed).

Insured Promotions and Games
Promotions and games can create a buzz around an event, attract sponsors and attendees, and lead to a call to action. Specialty Group can help customize your client’s promotion to make it unique and more successful. Flexibility in pricing and/or adjusting the terms helps to make sure the promotion is relevant and affordable.
Sweepstakes with a “Kicker”
On top of a traditional sweepstakes contest, the “kicker” is a guaranteed prize awarded to randomly selected winners. The selected winner(s) have an opportunity to win a huge jackpot if their entry contains a precise answer or guess relating to an uncontrollable event in the future.
Example: guessing the score of a sporting event or the precise time / date of a particular event occurring.
These skill-based promotions usually take place at a sporting event or fundraiser, and can be quoted through our fully automated online quote and bind system, TotalEvent® insurance online (www.totaleventinsurance.com/broker). Coverage for golf, hockey, basketball and
football contests is included.
Examples: a hole-in-one contest at a charity golf tournament or a basketball half-court shot during a college basketball game.
Promotion Sweepstakes Bonds
Also known as game-of-chance surety bonds, promotion sweepstakes bonds are required in Florida and New York for any game-of-chance promotion with a retail value over $5,000. The promotion must be bonded and registered with their office. Rhode Island requires only a registration for any retail promotion over $500. No other states require these promotions to be bonded.
