ibibo.com has also come with “World Cup Fever” to cheer India. Infact, they have launched a unique Cricket Game on their site called CricEx for their Cricket frenzy fans. Unlike other Cricket Games, ibibo CricEx is a virtual trading game where one can buy and sell shares of their favourite cricket players instead of shares of companies. A complete portfolio of cricket players can be created and if the players selected perform well, one can get hold of the leader board. You can either buy or sell the players you want. Unlike cricket, there is no restriction of 11 players and one can buy as many players as one wants. However the total value of the shares you buy for each of the players cannot exceed your cash in hand. To sell, go to your portfolio and choose the player you’d like to sell.
The player’s performance in the match currently live determines the change in price. A player performing well will cause the share price to move upwards and bad performance will cause the price to decrease. The price of the player changes at the end of every over. You can buy or sell players stocks anytime. But the rates of the players would change only when a match is live. You get an initial money of Rs. 20,000 for buying stocks of players and it will be virtual money and not real.
Apart from this game, ibibo will introduce interesting cricket related virtual items in its Gift store, where users can gift the same to their friends.
Commenting on launching the official game, Ashish Kashyap (CEO ibibo.com) said “To celebrate the Cricket Season with its users, ibibo will introduce interesting cricket related virtual items in its Gift store, where users can gift the same to their friends. And ofcourse on ibibo, the users can play the famous Cricket Stock Exchange game – ibibo CricEx.
