Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
For those who have ever felt they lacked the knowledge of a certain sporting event, but loved the excitement and camaraderie of the office pool, there’s now a website for you. Hatpicks.com has taken the simple concept of writing names on a piece of paper, folding them in half and pulling them out of hat to a new level. On the website, the user has the opportunity to start or join a group for a particular sporting event and invite friends, family and colleagues to play.
The latest sporting event on Hatpicks.com, the Kentucky Derby, offers the user the ability to start a group and invite co-workers, friends and/or family to play. As users join the group, they go to the hat pick module, click ‘Make A Hat Pick’ and the website randomly assigns a set number of horses to that particular user depending on how many picks the group creator allows per group member. The horse (or horses) that are assigned are now the user’s horses for the race.
The Hat Pick Group View provides a listing of all group members and their hat picks (horses) as well as the jockey and odds. However, the Group View will not list all member hat picks until all the horses have been selected in a group. This avoids group players seeing that all the best-odd horses have already been taken and keeps it exciting. If the user’s group hasn’t selected all the horses prior to post, the website will randomly assign the remaining horses to random members of each group, ensuring every horse has a hat pick owner.
Hatpicks.com is entirely free to play and is set up for easy use on smart phones and other mobile devices. The website promises to continue to deliver more sporting events throughout the year including the Indianapolis 500 following the Kentucky Derby.
