The duo timed the release ahead of the coming WNBA season.

Women’s sports betting platform, Gaming Society, has teamed up with the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) to release its second annual free-to-play predictor game. The launch is scheduled ahead of the upcoming WNBA 2023 season.

The W Prediction Game Presented by Gaming Society is designed to give sports betting fans an opportunity to predict WNBA matchups throughout the season. Players can return for nationally televised games as well.

Bettors can also access other features through the game, including live trivia games and a user chat interface.

Gaming Society further explained the game’s highlights by saying, “Fans have the opportunity to participate in either or both of the 'Weekly Pick ‘Em' and 'Live Gamification' prediction games with 1st place receiving prizes including official WNBA or team merchandise.

“The free-to-play game comes off the heels of the success of Gaming Society’s Bet on Women Predictor Game that launched during the second half of the 2022 WNBA season.” 

Gaming Society recently formed as a gamification and content company by NBA Hall-of-Famer Kevin Garnett and sports executive Jaymee Messler. The group said its purpose is to offer sports betting fans access to simple and inclusive betting options.

Its platform “amplifies fan engagement using games, betting, athlete perspective and immersive social experiences.”

This year’s WNBA season kicks off May 19 and is the league’s 27th season. The league affirms its commitment to social responsibility, as well as to diversity, equity and inclusion.

League member A’ja Wilson grabbed DraftKings’ top ranking as the WNBA player with the largest betting handle and the most bets placed.
