C'mon, Brian ... what's going on with the Prize Page? Seems like it's been blank for about 2 weeks now. Sad

At this point, due to decreased traffic and entries in the sweepstakes, we're discontinuing the prize program. We don't have any plans to bring it back at this time. Sorry for the bad news!

Thank you for letting us know. It's surprising to hear that GDG has had a decrease in entries. Would have been nice to have had some warning, as I would have used up my treats instead of saving them. I assume you will send out a broadcast message for those who don't visit the forum. Crying or Very sad

I may actually consider going back to the game site I came from. Not only do they still have prizes, they seem to have the "bigger & better" ones GDG was promising awhile back. Sad

Wow... how disappointing.

Maybe it's just me, but I have to ask: how would the sweepstakes traffic numbers NOT be down, when we haven't been able to enter to win anything for months??? It had been so long, I even quit checking for prizes. Really too bad to have been promised a new & better batch of prizes, only to have them discontinued altogether... Sad

I know you're disappointed, but the last of our sweepstakes ended just a few weeks ago. After a brief break last year, we ran sweepstakes consistently from the end of March until the end of October, and we saw decreased traffic through those months. Sorry again!

Brian, perhaps you can help shed a little more light on GDG's decision to discontinue the sweeps. Please share the rationale of GDG management: the sweeps should have been one of the draws to this site, along with the quality/quantity of games available, which basically offsets the multitude of ads players ... put up with even when some are very annoying. Like a previous player mentioned, there was a long dry spell without prizes at the start of the year, when GDG was looking at changes to the prize program, and some players might not have realized the sweeps resumed. Another possibility could have been that, even though I do remember a survey about the types of prizes players would prefer, perhaps the final choices put into place didn't really appeal to most members. As I recall the old format, prizes seemed to cycle/end every 4 or 5 days ... didn't the new format lengthen those cycles to 2-3 weeks? So less opportunities to enter different drawings. I know there seemed to be lots of drawings for the Visa type gift cards vs. some of the more common retail store cards ... perhaps some players hesitated to enter for fear of too much competition. Please help clear this all up for us nosey types!

I know I checked the prizes periodically, but I was saving my treats for the "bigger & better" prizes we had been promised. Seems like it was a Catch-22.

Also, in the big scheme of things from a corporate stand-point, the prizes offered seemed rather piddly. I'm sure the $200-$300 offered a month in prizes is wasted on a daily basis in general corporate life.

I suspect Arkadium is starting to concentrate their efforts in other aspects of gaming, & really doesn't care about supporting this site much longer. After all, the treats idea is imbedded throughout the whole site. If there's nothing we can do with the treats anymore, it kind of seems like the beginning of the end.

I don't understand why GDG can't offer things from GDG.
I'm talking about winnings,such as free downloadable games from GDG,
no ads game choice,pick 'x' amount of 10x games for the week or
something of that nature...you know...something involving only GDG.
At least that way players could still 'spend' their treats.
Sounds like such a good idea to me.

g8rmom, I agree. My educated guess would be ad revenues far outpace gift card costs. Considering it took (on average) 30-45 days to send them out after confirmation, coordination of the prize program left a little to be desired. I won several last year and they always arrived, so I always recommended GDG as a reputable site. Treats ARE embedded everywhere, so if the prizes have been discontinued, management might want to check with their legal dept. regarding false advertising, etc. like on the home page. Really sad/disappointing ... this is (overall) a great gaming site.

ConnieLea, I understand where you're coming from on the GDG offerings, but personally that wouldn't hold any appeal to me. I'm sure others feel differently.

If administrative time was an issue, heck, I'd be willing to do it for them!
