    The simplicity is amazing. Making my picks takes less than 30 seconds. Also appreciate the live updates--other platforms don't have that


    More sports! Other than that, nothing comes to mind. Great product.

    Fast & free, which equals nothing but upside opportunity. I've been playing for a bit now and have completed a Sweep 2 separate times! It's an amazing complement to what I currently do with my other fantasy sports which tend to take up more of my time. Sweep is not time consuming, aesthetically pleasing, and keeps me in the loop as to how my picks are performing.

    Incredibly easy to use, fun, engaging. Makes regular season games so much more fun to watch with absolutely no investment on your end!


    hmmmm... wish i could play it more?

    Ben and the team did an awesome job putting this together. I really enjoy it and like to show it to my friends, even those that do not have an avid gambling streak.

    User friendly, non-pushy, free, easy way to enjoy sports make a little money


    Not always personally engaged in Messenger APP so forget to use, not every game included in options to pick!

    As a passionate sports fan but not a big gambler - this is a free way to win some money and make games more interesting to watch -- making it a great product for me! Sweep engages in a endearing way that isn't too pushy - I've won some extra Amazon $$ from two different streaks and enjoyed using it!

  • Pros: 

    I've literally won $25 on it just by predicting a couple games correctly. It makes watching my terrible Knicks a lot more exciting.


    Really can't think of any, just want more sports!

    I was surprised at how much this product retained me. It takes the fun parts of sports betting and removes all the risk/downside of actual gambling. It kind of has that HQ-esque feel where you just spend a couple minutes a day playing and you can win money (without putting anything in).

    I've recommended it to a lot of my friends. Also, I found it to be a really interesting use case for chat bots.

    Easy to use. Keeps you connected to sports daily. Invites friendly competition. Feels like a game (because it is), doesnt feel like gambling


    None that I can see. No noticeable glitches

    Easy interface. I love sports and I love competition so predicting games is right down my alley! I cant wait to see if I get my picks right. I can see myself playing this daily. No pressure to win, only upside ... and so quick. Good job! Will tell friends and see who can win the most Amazon gift cards

    Exciting, Simple, Easy To Use


    Not a sports chick – but I'm down with the tech.

    I am probably the last person who you'd think would use a sports betting bot like Sweep – but ever since trying it, I'm really into the idea! It's super easy to make your picks, and it's exciting when you win a game (even though I have no idea who I'm voting for). I can't wait to see how this grows (and to win some $$$!)

    Easy to use platform, free, prizes(!), sports


    It is through Facebook Messenger and I don't log on everyday

    Super great and easy to use product! It is completely free, and 1 minute of your time can earn you some serious Amazon cash! The beta product was great and I am looking forward to all of the improvements that these guys have made.

    So easy to use and it makes watching your average sports game a thousand times better. I shared it with my teacher friends and we love it!


    The teachers have spoken...we want MORE games! :)

    Sweep is awesome and I'm not just saying that because I know the co-founders, lol. I shared it with my entire staff at the elementary school I work at. We're always playing and are excited to see what Sweep will come up with for competing with groups and friends. Teachers don't make much so that Amazon cash definitely comes in handy :)

    Simple, no bot hiccups, don't have to sign in or download new app. path of least resistance


    Not a con but can't wait for store to be built out

    Think the potential for Sweep is enormous. Ease of use, low stakes, and no risk will appeal to a large number of consumers who'd like to add a little spice to watching sports, but don't want to risk their money. Definitely worth trying out

    Super simple to use, no app to download, free and fun, like betting but without risk!


    A few small bugs while using the beta, but overall nothing to complain about

    Watching sports is always a little more fun when there's something at stake. Sweep gives me the same feeling of putting a few bucks down on a game, but without any of the risk (or the hassle that comes with using online betting platforms). Super fun concept and I'm excited to see what's next!

    Quick, easy & free; makes watching sports games fun now that there’s a chance of winning actual $ - without risking any.


    Normally don’t use FB messenger, but at least the app now gets used on my phone. Could use reminder notifications to select new picks.

    Overall, really fun. It’s super easy to use, but harder than you’d think to correctly pick 4 in a row. I’ve already shared with friends and they love it too. Now we have sweep competitions amongst ourselves - who got the most right? Who got the better GIF? Who’s going to be the first to sweep?

    Love the interactivity of the program. Constantly finding out if I've won or not...and encouraging me to try all the sports. Love the GIFs too! Always makes my day!

    Only on Facebook Messenger currently

    I've been playing Sweep since the beginning and won early. It's simple and intuitive set up makes it easy to pick your games and follow them all week. Great product that I'm excited to use for the tournament and World Cup instead of just football soon!

    Easy and seamless mechanism already built into a tool I use everyday!


    Still early stage, so not as many options as I'd like, but it's constantly expanding.

    I'm very excited to see the continued growth of the tool - it's come a long way since I first started using it.

    could use a couple more sports on there, like soccer!

    I was lucky enough to try out their beta and have won ~$40 so far (my olympics knowledge was on point). Great for buying the office snacks!
