Here's a quick guide on how to play Upstox Cric Exchange.

What is Upstox Cric Exchange (UCE)? 

Upstox Cric Exchange (UCE) is a unique blend of cricket and trading, where you can win rewards and learn the fundamentals of trading in an interactive gaming format. 

Are you a die-hard cricket fan who felt left out in getting a piece of the action during the IPL auction 2022. Well, fret not! Here’s your chance to be a part of the craze by playing UCE. In this game, you can buy and/or sell – basically trade – cricketers and win exciting rewards.

After you have bought a selection of players, they will be added to your portfolio. Before every IPL match, all you have to do is select a maximum of 5 players from one of the two teams playing against each other. After you have locked them in, you will be able to earn UPruns based on the selected players’ performance in the real-time IPL match. Remember, you can’t change the selection once the players are locked in. You can also make a new selection only the next day. The performance is rated out of 10 on the basis of the in-house CricIndex. 

What makes this game interesting?

You could be a regular trader who is excited about this gaming concept. Or you are a beginner who wants to understand the workings of a trading platform. This game can be your entryway into the world of trading where you can practice and learn the basics of buying and selling through UPruns. UPruns are virtual points awarded by default in the beginning of the game. 

Before you invest money on real stocks in the share market, use UPruns in this game to bet on cricketers by buying and selling them based on their performance. You need to first buy your favourite cricketers using the UPruns just like you would buy shares of the company of your interest. Later, these cricketers are put to contest as the IPL match begins. 

The ratings of your players in the game are calculated based on the performance of the players in live IPL matches. Just the way stock prices rise and fall in the stock market.

When your selected players do well, you earn more UPruns. These UPruns can be used to buy or sell more players, or could be exchanged for tangible rewards. The more you learn, the more you earn.
