Sunday is Facebook day - Eight brand-new Smartphones to be won with BIG CITY RACER

Vienna, 2 September 2010– Vanilla Live Games, publisher of the free online racing game BIG CITY RACER, is starting a new tournament series on 5 September. This time all Facebook fans of BIG CITY RACER will have the exclusive chance of participating in the tournament and winning a brand-new Samsung Smartphone. And it is not just the tournament winner who will be rejoicing– an additional lucky winner will be chosen from amongst all the players. The latest Samsung Smartphone, the Galaxy 3 I5800, features a versatile touchscreen, a 3.2 megapixel camera, Android 2.1, and easy handling of social media services.

“We are delighted about the response from the BIG CITY RACER community that has also emerged on Facebook. The lucky winners of these premium Smartphones will be able to inform themselves about the game on our Facebook profile and keep up to date. We are particularly pleased about our method of allocating the winners, since it also allows new members of our BIG CITY RACER community (who are not yet so experienced in the game) to have a chance at a top prize,” says Martin Langbrugger, Technical Director at Vanilla Live Games.

The Facebook tournament series starts on Sunday 5 September at 8pm and will take place weekly. Any BIG CITY RACER gamers who are also members of the Facebook fan page are eligible to participate in the game. The race will be run according to a knockout system until a winner is chosen from among eight finalists.

At www.bigcityracer.com, budding race drivers can sign up and hit the gas right after downloading the approx. 350 MB client. BIG CITY RACER is easy to get into and play, offering truly action-packed driving excitement. The game also lets all players modify and tune their vehicles just as they want them.
