Hungame launches fantasy cricket stock exchange

Hungama Game Studios announced today the launch of the Cricket Stock Exchange, an online stock exchange where you can trade shares of your favourite teams and players. The cricket stock exchange has been developed by Hungama Game Studios in partnership with cricket analyst Ayaz Memon and is available as a destination site on www.cricketstockexchange.com.

Visitors can buy cricketers by following ball by ball action as the match is being played live, and Ayaz Memon’s articles published on the exchange before and after the matches will also affect the value of player and team stocks. Cricket statistician Mohandas Menon is also on board to provide information on the past happenings of the game to help users evaluate their trades.

The stock exchange is currently going to update based on the ICC World Cup Scores, but will also be accessible through Facebook once the IPL starts.

Memon said, “The experience of exercising your gut feeling while following the game ball by ball makes playing the Cricket Stock Exchange exciting at every stage. The interface itself offers an exhilarating environment and the constant trivia and challenges get you hooked from the moment you log in.”

There will also be constant challenges created by Memon himself and user driven polls to decide on the most likeable player with titles for users such as “Trader of the Week” and “Highest Gainer of the Week” as well.

Menon said, “The Cricket Stock exchange is a great way for cricket fans in India and around the world to exercise their knowledge of the game. The depth at which Hungama has created the Cricket Stock Exchange provides users a challenging yet excitingly new way to enjoy the game.”

Siddhartha Roy, Chief Operating Officer, Consumer Business and Allied Services, Hungama, said, “With the Cricket Stock Exchange, Hungama gives its fans a new way to play their favorite sport in the online realm. Moving beyond fantasy cricket leagues, the Cricket Stock Exchange is a gripping new way for Cricket fans around the world to enjoy their favorite sports. It has been created in a friendly, easy to understand format allowing anyone to participate.”
