Gamesville.com releases first for the casual gaming industry

WALTHAM, Mass. - July 28, 2011 - Gamesville.com, part of the Lycos Network and the web's premier destination for free online "game shows" offering real cash prizes, has distinguished themselves even more by announcing the release of the all-new Countdown to Ca$h.

How does Countdown to Ca$h work? A special meter keeps track of how many games a Gamesville member has played in the last month. When a member plays enough games to unlock a given prize (ranging from $5 - $100) they can claim their winnings during their unique two-day claim window. Each month, new prizes are added and there's a new opportunity to claim a prize.

"Gamesville.com already awards more cash prizes to more people than anyone else," says Chris Cummings, Director of Product Management for Lycos. "With Countdown to Ca$h, it's no longer a matter of 'if' you'll win a prize; it's just a matter of 'when'."

In addition to Countdown to Ca$h, Gamesville offers many free games with progressive jackpots, instant wins, and a variety of special sweepstakes. In May, Gamesville debuted a re-imagined version of Frantic Fish®, their free, massively multi-player free bingo game with chat and prizes.
