Considering how addictive Bejeweled Blitz is on its own, I doubt that there are many people who play the game specifically because of the contest that’s held every week, giving away PopCap games or a laptop, among other items. However, this Month, PopCap is set to make the contest a bit more interesting – perhaps to the point where it will be higher on our radar than simply a space-filler at the bottom of the screen.
The new prizes? How does one of 16 iPod Touches sound? That sounds like a good prize to this music lover, but what sounds even better still is the grand prize to be given away later in the month – a Mazda3 i Sport 4-door sedan! Yes, a real car will be given away to one lucky user who plays the game, signs up for email alerts, and is part of a network of users that reaches 1 million cumulative points for the final week of the month (running from March 23 to March 30).
The prizes will change every week this month – according to the game’s official rules, after this week’s run of iPod Touches, we’ll be eligible to win one of 8 Garmin NUVI GPS during the week of March 9-16, while from March 16-23, four lucky winners will receive said Garmin NUVI GPS in addition to a $500 BP gift card.
While the odds are still astronomical for someone to win these contests (as it stands, the game has over 10 million monthly active users), regardless of the change from one laptop to 16 iPod Touches, these new prizes definitely add some extra incentive to play just one more game; just one more game to get you and your network up to the 1 million point minimum to be eligible.
All told, it only takes one entry to win, so head over to the Bejeweled Blitz game page to earn yours now.
