December 7, 2011 : NEW SOCIAL GAMING BINGO PLAYERS MAY WIN CASH
New Bingo for Facebook game launches
Search engine and web portal operator and owner Lycos Inc's Gamesville.com has launched "Pirate Cove Bingo for Facebook" billed as "a freebooting social game that lets friends play free bingo together and take home real cash prizes".
The game involves players receiving an unlimited supply of white bingo cards and a limited number of Gold bingo cards. Each time a player gets bingo on a white card, they build up their piratey treasure chest, and every time they get bingo on a Gold card, they are automatically entered into a $25 daily sweepstakes.
Jungwook Lim, chief executive officer of Lycos, adds, "This game incorporates everything our customers love — friends, entertainment, and free cash prizes — with a unique look and fun theme that keeps them coming back for more."
The game plans to introduce additional enhancements including new bingo rooms, in-game gifts and collectibles in the coming months.
