In the playoff league, players competed for "Akropolis" gift cards. One player was randomly selected and won a PlayStation 5 console and the NBA2K23 game. The lucky winner was the user "egisss."
Throughout the season, the most frequently used cards in the fantasy game were those of Marcus Foster, E. Ulanov, A. Caver, and J. Garretto, as they brought the highest number of points. A. Caver, who became the league's regular-season MVP, most often featured in the weekly teams.
"It was an amazing first season. We had 13.5 thousand Lithuanian basketball fans registered on our platform, who competed daily for great prizes. We are proud that together with 'Betsafe-LKL,' we managed to create a friendly and passionate basketball community that shares feedback to improve. We thank 'Betsafe-LKL' for their trust and also extend our thanks to the fans, clubs, and players. This is just the beginning; let's keep playing," shared Samuel Vardas, one of the founders and marketing director of "Cryplect."
"In the first season, we received significant attention from enthusiasts. It is gratifying to see a new community formed on the Discord platform, where discussions never cease. During this season, we learned a lot and improved ourselves. It was truly a great start, and we hope to attract an even larger number of players starting from autumn, offering them an even better product," – Vaidas Leliuga, LKL Head of communications.
