Hi Wheaties, sorry we're late on adding new sweepstakes - the good news is there should be a full schedule of sweeps to enter very soon!

GDG-Brian,I think you're awesome Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Compliments aside, Smile ,earlier,somewhere in these forums,
I asked if players outside the US could play/enter (win or lose)
the sweepstakes if the prize was a GDG downloadable game.
I was just wondering because
I know that's something that
I would enter to win,
and if nonresidents were eligible to win
it would give them at least 1 chance to win/use their treats.
Just something that was on my mind.
I still think you're awesome Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Smile Smile Smile Smile

HOPE YOU'VE HAD A WONDERFUL WEEK END Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Thanks ConnieLea, you're awesome too!

As a company located in the US, offering physical prizes, cash, or gift cards is made virtually impossible for us due to sweepstakes laws. We want to offer worldwide sweepstakes, but I don't know anyone who owns enough scissors to cut through all the red tape involved. Sorry!

Brian.

I might have a simple answer to how NON-US citizens could win prizes:

On this site, there is a section for "DOWNLOAD GAMES". Your company offers these games for download at a cost.

What about offering a 24-hour FREE pass to one of those many games as a sweepstakes prize. You can block it from being downloaded with just a simple code. AND it wouldn't violate any international treaties or laws.

OR, you could also allow people to SPEND their treats on those games. For instance offering access to 3d magic mahjongg for 1000 treats per game. This would allow ANYONE, regardless of country origin, to USE their treats. You've got MANY download games to choose from, which could open up the interest in the download games while at the same time giving the GDG members a wider variety of sweepstakes to choose from.

Just a thought.

krazykop,I'm so glad you knew a way
that the downloadable games could be (maybe) used for prizes.
I had mentioned it (not with your knowledge) before
as to whether it could be done or not.
I know if winning or buying downloadable games with my treats
was an option I would be spending my treats Exclamation Exclamation

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll run them by our legal team again, but they're pretty stubborn about this sort of thing, and they definitely know a lot more about it than I do.

Brian,while you're running that all by them,
if they say no will you ask
if a free downloadable game
could be considered
for a regular (same as always) sweepstakes choice
(or just straight out buy them with treats) Question Question
I would personally love to have something
that interests me to spend my treats on.
I think a lot of players would like the idea
and play a lot more in order to earn more treats
if that was one way to spend them.
Just my opinion.
Maybe you could do a survey on it.
