CBS Local Digital Media has recently announced the release of Pingo, a new photo gaming app for iOS that gives players a chance to win prizes simply by taking pictures. Pingo offers daily challenges including sports, music and pop culture topics as well as challenges from popular musicians, TV and more that are within and outside of CBS. To participate, users simply download the free PINGO app onto their iOS device, select a challenge then follow the instructions to fill in game tiles with photos related to the topic. Photos can be uploaded through a user’s photo gallery or be taken directly through the app itself.
In the coming weeks, we’re also told that Pingo will include challenges from the following:
- Music: Players will have a chance to win tickets to upcoming summer tours from Nickelback, AWOLNATION and Billy Currington; Ne-Yo, Charli XCX and Darius Rucker will offer challenges to win autographed prize packs; and additional artists signed on to launch PINGO challenges include All Time Low, Canaan Smith, Cody Simpson, Love & Theft, Paul Oakenfold, Tori Kelly and others.
- Television: CBS Television’s The Amazing Race and The Odd Couple will offer challenges; local CBS properties, including CBS Boston, CBS Denver and CBS Pittsburgh, will also offer their own challenges related to news and events.
- Sports: Former Wrestling World Champion Taz will offer a Pingo challenge related to his Play.it Podcast; challenges related to Hockey Essentials, College Basketball Underdogs and College Mascots will also be available.
