Entropia Universe gamers Give Away $10,000 to Other Gamers

Gothenburg, Sweden - May 2, 2013 /Entropia Universe/ - Entropia Universe AB, the largest Massively Multiplayer Online Real Cash Economy (or MMORCE) game, announced today that BIG Industries, a player run group on Planet Calypso, is giving away $10,000.  Welcoming seasoned participants, and beginners to Entropia Universe, this event is structured to allow all participants a chance at claiming their share of the prize.  

"Entropia Universe is once again proving a real economy in a game not only works but can flourish," said David Simmonds, CEO of MindArk.  "We have created an environment where players can make money and also realize the benefit in giving it away to other players.  Just as contests are used for branding and promotions in the real world, in our universe they propel virtual businesses allowing for greater market share." 

The contest taking place over the next 6 weeks is unique because participants of the game, and not the publisher, or any subsidiary, are offering the prize. The $10,000 will be divided up into units of 1000 PED ($100) being rewarded to the top 100 single loots occurring on any of the 8 land areas managed by BIG industries, as dictated by the contest rules here. To join the event, players must go to Entropia Life, an external platform approved by MindArk that monitors activity within the game.  Once there they can sign up for a free Entropia Life account and register for the event. Those who wish to join the event but do not already have an Entropia Universe avatar can go to universe.entropialife.com and sign up for a free Entropia Universe account.
