CaliBurger launches first global mobile e-sports tournament

Grand prize US $10,000

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 04, 2016) - Gamers around the world will line up at their local CaliBurger restaurant on September 26th to participate in a global gaming tournament for a chance to win USD $10,000. Running until October 9th, the tournament is based on the exciting new mobile game GemJump that runs on the FunWall social gaming platform, which allows gamers to participate in tournaments with other gamers in any public location around the world.

The CaliBurger team worked tirelessly in examining the motivations, behaviours and goals of their target consumers and created a tournament that will entice their demographic.

John Miller, Founder and Chairman of CaliBurger: "We are excited to launch the first of many global mobile gaming tournaments at CaliBurger. This is the only physical forum, that we are aware of, where people can come together and compete in mobile games against gamers all over the world for real prizes. CaliBurger is the place to do that."

The tournament will run in ten countries, including Canada. CaliBurger Vancouver will launch the tournament with an event on September 26th and host tournaments in the restaurant for the duration of the contest. Contestants are invited to participate on the restaurant's nine-inch FunWall where they will not only see how the match-up against their competition in CaliBurger Vancouver, but also how they rank against every other player in the world.

Any CaliBurger customer can participate by coming to a restaurant and joining the action via the FunWall game mode integrated into the GemJump game. Tournament play will occur during regular restaurant hours.

The individual global champion will be the player with the highest number of FunWall points accumulated across the entire period of the tournament.

The ultimate tournament winner will receive a grand prize of USD $10,000. The four runners-up will receive the latest Apple iPad Pro. There will also be daily prizes of food and beverages from the CaliBurger menu.

GemJump is a visually-striking endless jumper game where players guide a faceted sphere up an ever-twisting 360-degree spire by jumping from gemstone to gemstone. The higher you climb, the greater the number of points you accumulate.
