Consensus Point is excited to bring back The Ticker. We’ve partnered with Gannett Media to expand the popular Tennessean Ticker game. Six Gannett media companies – The News-Press, Tallahassee Democrat, Greenville News, Clarion-Ledger, Tennessean, Florida Today, and a television news station, First Coast News, are participating in the game that is free to the public.
The Ticker is a stock market style game that allows players to predict the outcomes of future events. Players who make the most accurate predictions can win a weekly $100 ROI prize and a potential grand prize.
Questions will cover a variety of topics from whether Phil Mickelson will finish in the top 10 at the British Open to weather there will be eight named storms in the Atlantic by August 7. Past markets have accurately predicted events such as the winner of the Heisman Trophy in correct finishing order days before the results were announced.
The Ticker offers Gannett properties a way to connect with their communities and make the news fun and interactive. It will reach a broad audience by providing a wide range of questions and will create an interactive relationship with readers. “Our platform provides a new way for media outlets to engage their audience and understand the probability of future events,” said Linda Rebrovick CEO of Consensus Point.
