Cuzzo Trivia

Sports & Entertainment

One of the leading radio and media personalities for Philadelphia sports, Anthony Gargano came to Chop Dawg to create an app that centers around Philadelphia sports trivia.

Anthony has an intimate view of what fans want, the teams want, and what sponsors want. This is why Anthony came to Chop Dawg with an idea for a sports trivia app called Cuzzo. Launching first in the Philadelphia sports market, Cuzzo is a sports trivia app that is tailored towards the most hardcore fans competing with each other. To ensure that Cuzzo could be as competitive for fans as possible, we built a winner-takes-all system. If you’re the last man or woman standing, you can take home a prize. For the prize system to work, Chop Dawg built a monetization system for the app. Cuzzo has a network of local advertisers and sponsors that offer great prizes to winning fans.

The sponsorship and advertising opportunities are a big part of Cuzzo’s monetization and gameplay strategy.

The Cuzzo app has the ability to display sponsored contests, and show advertisements throughout the app and during the games. Everything that happens on this application is tracked for sponsors and advertisers. Who interacts with their ads? How often are they seen? What is their demographic? What prizes did users select that they want if they win? Sponsors can also take advantage of Cuzzo’s geolocation features for local-only events. This is so local establishments can encourage (via sponsorship) for competitors to compete right in their own venue. Cuzzo can also tie in real-time trivia games with on-air radio, thanks to Anthony’s connections and expertise.

From day one release, Chop Dawg built the Cuzzo sports trivia app to be scalable.

While the application is taking a local-approach first in the Philadelphia sports market, Cuzzo will be able introduce more daily free-style trivia contests beyond to other sports-crazed cities across the United States and the globe. We built the platform’s ecosystem to cater to future partnerships with live television, the leagues themselves, and other incredible vendors.

The number one priority was to design Cuzzo the gameplay experience to be a fun.

For Cuzzo to be a fun experience, the trivia questions and answers needed to be well-integrated into the game, challenging, and presented in a fun way. Chop Dawg worked closely with Anthony Gargano so the gameplay flowed smoothly, taking the best things from other quiz apps while also improving on some other aspects. Through this detailed collaboration and Anthony’s years of expertise and insights on his field, we were able to build a scalable product that will be a lot of fun for sports fans in Philadelphia and hopefully beyond.

"This team at is impressive. I was impressed by everyone overseeing the project, the project managers, and everyone building it. Their professionalism is amazing. They understand how the technology applies to business."

Some of the technology that we used to create the Cuzzo app

Cuzzo was built as an iPhone and Android application using React Native and with REST APIs, supporting iOS 12, iOS 13, and Android 9, Android 10. For the administrator backend, website application, server-side, we used PHP with Laravel, built on React.
