SAN FRANCISCO, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Skillz, the worldwide leader in mobile eSports, has introduced a new live events platform that allows anyone to organize mobile video game competitions and live-stream them to any Internet connected device. With the new technology, bars, restaurants, non-profits and virtual venues can run their own free or cash-prize eSports tournaments in over 500 mobile games. The competitions can be geolocated to a specific venue or can be made available to anyone who has downloaded the game.
