Easy Streak app review: a simple and fun sports sweepstake app with real prizes

Reviews

Introduction

If you’re like me, then you follow all of the major North American sports leagues religiously and sports represent an important part of your life overall. Your days of participating in team sports may be long over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your team sports fix by watching your favorite team. There’s something about the thrill of competition that can get your blood boiling and it’s even better when you have a stake in the outcome. Unfortunately, gambling on sports is illegal in many states which leaves a lot of people worried about participating in such endeavors.

Now, there is an app that lets you compete against other people online by choosing your favorite teams without having to worry about the gambling implications. Easy Streak is a sports sweepstake app that lets you enjoy the thrill of gambling without the worry of doing something illegal. You can participate in this app completely free, but there is also a paid portion of the app. It works on all IOS devices including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Quick Signup and Simple Instructions

You will have to sign up to start using Easy Streak, but the whole process is very simple. All you have to do is provide your name, email address, the state you live in, and create a password to get started. The whole process will take you about 30 seconds to complete and then you’ll gain immediate access to the public gallery.

Unlike other fantasy sports websites and apps, this app keeps things extremely simple, but just in case you’re having trouble understanding how the process works they do provide an easily accessible set of instructions. You can access the instructions by tapping on the menu icon in the top right corner and then you just have to look for the How to Play menu item. They briefly explain how each game works, how you can actually win real cash, how to collect points, and how you can use tokens to participate in the pools.

Public and Private Contests

In the main lobby of the app you’ll see a listing of the different major North American sports leagues that have upcoming games. To participate in the pool, you simply tap on the listing in the lobby to gain access. However, if you haven’t paid for a subscription to the app then you won’t be able to play contests unless they say that they require zero tokens for entry. This is clearly displayed in its lobby listing entry. If you do decide to go with a subscription then you’ll be given free tokens on a daily basis and you can use those to participate in the different pools that do require tokens.

This structure lets the app operate as a sweepstakes instead of a gambling game and makes it legal to play in any state. That was the goal of the app’s creator Matt Williams who wanted to come up with a simplified way of betting on your favorite sports teams that was also completely legal. He succeeded in making sure users of his app don’t have to worry about any legal grey areas.  

Sometimes, it’s kind of fun to participate in private contests between friends or family members. With this app you not only have access to the public contests, but you can also start private contests that are only available to people you invite. It’s a fun way to test your sports knowledge against friends and family members and it can really make watching your favorite teams that much more interesting.

Subscribe for Articles and Tokens

As mentioned above, you will most likely have to subscribe in order to play in the majority of the app’s contests. However, if you do choose to subscribe to the app, then you also gain access to insider articles that can help you to make the right choice when picking your teams. As a bonus, you’ll also be given daily tokens to use in the premium pools. These pools actually have real cash prizes that you can win if you’re at the top of the leaderboard when the contest is over. In fact, the top 20 finishers gain a portion of the prize. At the time of this writing, the prize for these pools was approximately $500.

Pick Teams

This app is a total breath of fresh air when it comes to ease of use. Most fantasy sports leagues can be extremely complicated as you have to choose the over under and bet on the correct spread of games. Easy Streak simplifies things so that you don’t have to have a degree in sports science to make the right choices on your favorite sports teams. You don’t have to worry about how individual players are performing – you simply have to bet on your favorite team. For example, if Buffalo’s playing Dallas in the NFL all you have to do is pick the winner. That’s it.

An Easier Way to Win Money on Sports

The biggest drawback for all fantasy sportsbetting sites  is that they rely on users that have a deep understanding of any particular sport, at any given time. The problem with that philosophy is that most of us lead busy lives and don’t have time to follow each team down to its tiniest detail. Rather than follow their favorite teams closely, many people become disinterested because they can’t be bothered with making ‘watching sports’ into a full-time job. Easy Streak simplifies the process by allowing you to simply bet on the team instead of the spread or the over under. It allows you to stay interested in your favorite sports and have a real stake in them without having to be a statistician. This is a fantastic app for the sports lover in any home.
