SAN FRANCISCO, May 27, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DimePickers LLC, a social gaming company, announced today the launch of its official Facebook game. The DimePickers Facebook application ( http://apps.facebook.com/dimepickers ) gives players the chance to predict the outcomes of upcoming sporting events and share their results with their Facebook friends. As players make successful sports picks, they earn achievements, which they can then automatically post to their Facebook walls. DimePickers keeps track of the most successful users on a leaderboard and displays trend data to help players make their picks.

"Fantasy sports games give fans a reason to be interested in sporting events that don't involve their favorite teams or athletes," commented DimePickers CEO Neil McCarthy. "DimePickers is different than most fantasy pick 'em games out there, because it allows fans to compete across sports and leagues. We use Vegas-style gambling lines to level the playing field so, for example, basketball fans can compare their success to baseball fans. We're excited to see Facebook users inviting their friends to DimePickers so they can compete against their friends and family."
