VIP Player Event Recap

We recently held a special event for some of our VIP players from across the United States! During this gathering, they had the opportunity to enjoy a fun night in San Francisco, meet fellow VIPs, mingle with Skillz employees, and play in live game tournaments for exciting prizes.

 
One of the highlights of the event was a speech by our co-founder and COO, Casey Chafkin, in which he addressed the importance of our players to the future of both Skillz and the larger eSports industry. Each of our VIPs then had the opportunity to chat with Casey individually, and many shared their personal experiences with Skillz games over the years – including how grateful they were to have the chance to play competitively.

 
Among the games played at the event were Bubble Shooter and Solitaire Cube, with tournament winners taking home prizes including iPads, Beats headphones, AirPods, and drones. Two Solitaire Cube players actually realized they were online rivals in the game, after watching the live tournament broadcasts where VIPs were called out by their Skillz usernames – giving them the chance to meet face-to-face for the first time ever!

The event was a fun opportunity for us to show our appreciation for our VIPs, bring them together, and learn about their personal experiences/feedback from competing on the Skillz platform. We’re looking forward to meeting even more players at additional events in the future!
