gPotato Game Portal Debuts New Look, Games, and Features on November 22

Sunnyvale, Calif.  November 22 – The gPotato that 10 million players have come to know and love just got itself fitted for a new suit and hat with the holiday relaunch of the beloved game portal. November 22 sees the first public debut of the enhanced gPotato.com, which transforms the portal into a unified hub for everything from feature MMOs to brand new mini-games.

To celebrate the new site, gPotato has flung open its doors to the entire games community by giving away Razer mice, SUMO beanbags, and even free gPotatoes that can be redeemed in the portal-wide Thanksgiving sale. Anyone can participate in three easy-to-join contests, and in the best tradition of free-to-play, anyone can win – no purchase necessary! Take your pick of ways to win with contests for flash games, Twitter, and Facebook, and be sure to check out the official rules on gPotato.com:

·         Hot Potato Challenge (November 22-December 5): The biggest addition to the new website is 14 addictive flash games – one for each day of the next two weeks. Log in to a free gPotato account and get the highest daily score on the game of the day to win a Razer Naga mouse.

·         Twitter (November 22-28): What is this “gPotato”? Those who don’t know the name – and even those who do! – have often wondered just how the distinctive, yet enigmatic, gPotato got its name. Tweet your best guess to the hashtag #gPotatoMeans and the team at gPotato will pick five favorites to win bright orange SUMO Omni beanbags.

·         Facebook (November 22-28): The website isn’t the only thing that can change its look! The gPotato mascot has been trying on top hats, headphones, and hairstyles over on the official Facebook page, so grab a gPotato from the “ gPotato Style” album and make it your profile pic for a week. Ten random winners will receive 5000 gPotatoes (worth $50).

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, too, and gPotato offers thanks to its players with an annual holiday sale that sees up to 50% off the entire cash shop for beloved games like Flyff, plus individual discounts and bundles with savings of up to 70% in all games.
