Weekly GBP 1 Million Jackpot Game Launched in the U.K.
August 13, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — Online football fans have the opportunity to win up to GBP 1 million a week in a new Internet-based game branded Man of the Match launched this week by a UK company, working with PlasmaNet Inc., a U.S. corporation responsible for FreeLotto which has 43 million members in 161 countries and has paid out over $82 million in prizes to winners.
Football fans worldwide are invited, through the Man of the Match website, to use their experience and skill to predict the Man of the Match for a series of ten selected football matches each week. If all ten predictions are correct then the prize is a guaranteed jackpot of GBP 1 million.
A Predictor League will run in parallel for those who correctly predict the most Man of the Matches each month, winning a share of GBP 5,000. The game includes a special automatic random entry should fans forget to play or enter a prediction. The company behind the game, Man of the Match Ltd, plans to introduce other sports and features as well as develop a community behind the game.
Marc Maley, Chief Executive of Man of the Match, said "We are delighted with the pre-launch response of fans and the industry to our exciting new exclusive predictive game. We are really looking forward to announcing our first million pound winners. English Premier League football itself has a massive fan base in the Far East and MOTM will now be in a position to positively enter that market."
