"The expansion of our beta is an important moment for RumbleMonkey and
our users," said RumbleMonkey CEO Jacob Rapoport. "Right from the start,
our goal has been to develop a platform that makes it fun and easy for
gamers to jump into their favorite games and compete in real-money
matches. This update is a major step toward that goal."

Beginning today, RumbleMonkey will issue multiple rounds of beta codes,
welcoming new waves of users to experience the enhanced gameplay that
RumbleMonkey delivers. Anyone interested in joining the closed beta on
PC or Mac can visit
to sign up.

RumbleMonkey currently supports Blizzard's popular online card game
Hearthstone to demonstrate the platform and the knock-on effects that
real-money matches bring to gaming. Those knock-on effects include:
heightening the excitement of gameplay; increasing the quality of
competition of each match; and reducing or eliminating trolling. In the
future, RumbleMonkey will support more games, including popular
franchises and original IPs.

While other companies have approached the real-money gaming space,
RumbleMonkey is doing so with the needs of gamers in mind. For example,
RumbleMonkey is focused on supporting popular esports titles that gamers
are actively playing. By focusing on prominent esports titles, and
empowering gamers to initiate head-to-head matches how and when they
want, RumbleMonkey's secure and easy-to-use environment provides an
unrivaled casual money-match experience.

Despite rapidly increasing excitement around competitive gaming, there
are still massive barriers to entry for gamers who want to earn money
while playing their favorite esports. The expanded beta signals an
important milestone for RumbleMonkey and its mission to democratize the
esports that players already know and love.
