Nursing Home Resident Hits a Grand Slam Playing Micro Fantasy
Many Residents Rooted For Each Other and Yelled Out Until the Final Play
Brecksville, Ohio, USA – Thursday, May 9, 2017: Micro Fantasy prediction contests were recently introduced to residents at The Oaks of Brecksville, a short and long term rehabilitation facility, during the broadcast of a Cleveland Indians baseball game.
Micro Fantasy prediction contests allow participants to predict the results of game action during live sports events using a mobile device or computer. Points are awarded for each correct prediction. In-person attendees at the events, as well as television/streaming viewers and radio listeners, can participate in the contests.
The residents at The Oaks of Brecksville were offered the opportunity to participate in the Micro Fantasy contests as an alternative to traditional recreational activities like bingo, card games and television watching. One Oaks of Brecksville resident led the first half of the Micro Fantasy contest and placed second overall. But winning didn’t matter. Just being in the contest was a grand slam!
“It was thrilling to witness the excitement between the residents as they engaged with each other and the new technology,” stated Marie Day, Activity Director at The Oaks of Brecksville. “Many residents rooted for each other and yelled out, until the final play determined the winner.”
The latest version of the Micro Fantasy mobile app is currently available for download through the Apple App Store and Google Play. An online version is also available on microfantasy.com. Prediction contests for other teams, leagues and sports are continuously being added. Recent additions include the Lake Erie Crushers of the Frontier League (baseball) and Akron Racers of the National Pro Fastpitch League.
“Micro Fantasy prediction contests are a great activity for all ages,” said Micro Fantasy Founder and CEO Joel Crites. “I was excited to personally introduce our contests to the residents at The Oaks of Brecksville, and it was very fulfilling to see how much they enjoyed them. We look forward to working more with the Oaks of Brecksville and other rehabilitation facilities in the future.”
