What is Spot the Ball?
Spot the Ball is a web-based game where images taken from sporting events that involve balls are manipulated to remove the ball from an action shot. It is then up to the user to find where the ball should be based on the eye contact and body language of the athletes in the shot.
Users can scroll through dozens of images like this and click on the image where they think the ball should be. The game is much more difficult to master than it sounds as people are not always looking directly at a moving object (or at least it appears that way in the photos).
Who Sponsors these Games?
Spot the Ball started as a promotional strategy by media companies and online news outlets. It was a way to get people engaged in the site and spending some time on a page so that they may eventually read other content or perhaps convert to subscribers.
After the game grew in popularity, many different categories of sites that want to attract an audience may use this strategy.
What Types of Sports are Used?
