Viber Ignites World Cup Fever for Sri Lankans with Novel Cricket Bot Contest


For most Sri Lankans cricket is a passion. Igniting excitement for all avid fans who love the game, Viber, the global messaging platform, has introduced a novel World Cricket Bot contest taking cricket to new heights.

Offering unparalleled exhilaration, through Viber’s recently launched World Cup Cricket Bot, the contest provides users the opportunity through the bot to predict the winners and results of upcoming matches.

In addition, users who are fans of the game can compete on the leaderboard, receive a ranking and take the prime spot among other cricket fan competitors.

During the competition period from May 30th to July 14th 2019, Viber users who have subscribed to the Cricket Bot will receive a notification of the daily match schedule. Users in turn have to predict their results before the commencement of the day’s match.

Creating a wider opportunity for users to win, each match prediction will feature four different questions and points allocated for each accurate answer such as (i) the toss winner – 1 point (ii) match winner – 3 points (iii) team A score – 10 points and (iv) team B score – 20 points. All correct answers will ensure that points are automatically applied to all user’s different leaderboards.

Each participant that accurately predicts the winning team and exact score will be presented a ‘Match Prize’ consisting of US$ 1 worth of exclusive Viber out credit coupon. This can be redeemed until mid-August.

At the culmination of the contest, amazing grand prizes will be awarded to the top three winners. The participant who collects the most points receives the futuristic iPhone X; the user with the second highest number of points receives a smart tv and the third highest will win an iPad.
