SLIVER.tv has partnered with Twitch to add their Tilted Trivia extension to the platform, allowing viewers to play live by contributing Twitch Bits.
The extension will allow users to compete by answering a variety of trivia questions tailored to the streamer and the game they’re watching. The extension will launch with over 3,000 trivia questions from general gaming, esports, and top titles like Fortnite, League of Legends, CS:GO, PUBG, Overwatch and more. The top 3 participants will feature on the streamer’s leaderboard.
Speaking about the partnership, Mitch Liu, Co-founder and CEO, SLIVER.tv/Theta Labs had this to say: “As we built SLIVER.tv to over five million monthly visits, we learned that interactive trivia games are highly engaging and capture the attention of viewers, Our users earn free virtual coins for prizes by watching streamers and actively participating in trivia, raffle contests and live polls, leading to session times that clock in at up to 40 percent longer. Tilted Trivia represents the next evolution of this engaging platform, and we’re excited to enable thousands of streamers to deepen their relationships with Twitch’s 100 million monthly active users.”
Twitch streamer Erik ‘Fl0m’ Flom spoke about the deal: “What has me most excited for Tilted Trivia is that this same increased engagement will be directly brought into Twitch through the extension. A second added benefit is my viewers and the Bits they use directly support me while participating in the trivia and competing for the top of the leaderboards. All you have to do is enable the extension and let the fun begin.”
Currently, streamers are only able to use one extension at a time. Twitch has clearly noted the issues, as back in January they released a developer post about the subject.
Esports Insider says: More revenue streams is important for streamers, plus the extension should help viewers feel more a part of the community, while also being rewarded for that loyalty.
