What is Long Game?
- Long Game is the mobile personal finance app that uses games with cash prizes to help users win the savings game, magically transforming money-management-haters into financial winners.
- As users save into their FDIC insured, interest-bearing savings jars and are are rewarded with Coins for saving, which they use to play games in the app for cash prizes.
- Plus, with the Long Game debit card and spending account users get extra rewards for every purchase, and can accelerate their savings with RoundUp.
- Games are fun, lightweight interactions modeled on the most popular games in America, such as lotteries, scratchers and mobile games.
- There’s no risk, users cannot lose money and all money can be withdrawn at any time. Accounts are FDIC insured, earn interest, and are held in partnership with Blue Ridge Bank of Virginia and nbkc bank.
