888sport is tapping into Pokémon Go fever with the introduction of a new geo-targeting game which lets English football fans search for free-bet offers when near to a stadium.
Free Bet Hunt will be available at Premier League fixtures throughout the season as well as the stadiums of the four second-tier Championship teams – Birmingham City, Brentford, Nottingham Forest and Preston North End – which are sponsored by 888sport.
When playing the Free Bet Hunt game, which is available via the app and mobile website, players will be shown a map with the exact free bets location. Free bets can be found outside the stadium, not in the stadium themselves, which means a ticket to watch the fixture itself is not required.
Pokémon Go was attracting as many 45 million players per day following its launch last month.
