Playing Online Games for Cash and Prizes

Boot Camp feature for Monday, April 5, 1999

Win cash and prizes playing games online. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. If your going to while away all that time surfing the net or playing games, you might as well get something for it. Enter a web site called PrizePoint. It was launched by a group of Internet industry veterans who were pioneers with a service called Pointcast. That service was on the serious side, delivering news and information. PrizePoint's Frank Blot says this time it's all fun and games....

"Draw poker is one, casino is another, blackjack is another popular game that we have. There's trivia, generated on a daily basis in four different categories right now. Sports, history, travel and entertainment. There are other games of chance. There are strategy games."

The games are free to play and the prizes make them even more fun...

"We give ten dollars away as frequently as every hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We give away 500 dollars twice a day at 11 am and 11 pm, a thousand dollars a month, a hundred dollars at noon time."

You accumulate chances to enter for the prizes by playing the games. There are prizes besides cash too, including golf equipment, vacations and computers....

"The computers that we give away...essentially we have free PCs that we give away every Monday."

The site again, is PrizePoint.com.
