Gamesville: We Are The Bob Barkers Of The Internet
I’m the senior product manager for Gamesville.com–the web’s first, best, and only place to compete in real-time, massively multiplayer game shows for free cash prizes–and today was a very special day for us.
A local man won big in our Magic 21 game show a few days ago, so we fired up the Gamesville Prize Patrol jeep today and drove down to Andover, MA, to present the real check (and a comically over-sized check) to the lucky winner, live and in person.
The winner, Gil, was very gracious and excited. And by his own admission, the win could not have come at a better time.
Until a few months ago, Gil had been a salesman specializing in selling pagers to businesses. The company laid off many people, including Gil, so he’s currently searching for a new sales position.
If anyone has any job leads for Gil, please contact me at
chris at christophercummings.comand I will pass them along.
Thanks, everyone. And congratulations, Gil!
