Sweep

Sports gaming bot making it ☔ Amazon gift cards

5.0/5
About

Sweep has built a bot to help you pick sports games and get Amazon Gift Cards when you hit 4 wins in a row. No app to download, you can play via chat in Facebook Messenger. The team has experience from FanDuel and is a part of WeWork’s Area 51 (W18).

Would you recommend this product?

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.

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.

Cons:

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

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.

Pros:

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

Cons:

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

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.

Pros:

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

Cons:

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

Easy. Free. Fun.

Cons:

None.

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!

Pros:

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

Cons:

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

Cons:

Almost too easy

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!

Pros:

Easy to use, fun, free money

Cons:

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

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?

Pros:

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

Cons:

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.

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

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.

Once they're able to find a way to showcase how well (or not well) my friends are doing, Sweep becomes a game changer in sports betting.

Pros:

Cons:

None come to mind.

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:

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

Cons:

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

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

Pros:

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

Cons:

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

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 :)

Pros:

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!

Cons:

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

Pros:

Quick and easy to use, chance to win money, fun

Cons:

Only on Facebook Messenger currently
