The product that we came up with was mini games during half time events at Regis basketball games. The game that we have used up until this point is called “Shoot for Loot” where fans can buy a mini basketball and attempt to throw it in the bin placed at the center of the court or field depending on the sport. If a contestant is able to shoot the ball into the bin then they win a prize. The prize they have won so far is that they get to keep half of the money raised by selling the mini basketballs .

It is a really enjoyable game to play as everybody is trying their best to get their ball in the bin and win the prize. We definitely saw a lot of smiles and laughs from people of all ages when we ran
