Norwich, U.K. - September 13, 2007 - Tournament.com, a pioneer in licensed online PC gaming competition that allows gamers from around the world to win money facing off against one another in their favorite games over the Internet, today announced the launch of their "Frag-A-Friend" program. The new campaign awards Tournament.com players with bonus cash for referring friends and players to the service.
Players eager to start turning their friends into bonus cash need only refer them to Tournament.com. For every referred friend that creates a Tournament.com account, the referring player will receive $5 in bonus cash. If those friends then go on to deposit cash in the system, the referring player receives an additional $10 dollars that can be cashed out or left in the system. The amount of bonus cash that can be received is unlimited, giving players the ultimate incentive to refer their friends and get fragging.
"At Tournament.com, the players are the driving force behind the most compelling and competitive online multiplayer experience around," said Richard Skelhorn, Director of Tournament.com. "Giving those players not only the ability to bring their friends into the fold, but also to be awarded bonus cash for doing so, is our way to give back to the player community and remain dedicated to keeping competition at Tournament.com as robust as ever."
Tournament.com offers players the chance to win money based on their skills in Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, Counter-Strike: Source, and soon, Day of Defeat: Source. To ensure the most secure environment possible, Tournament.com allows users to stake no more than $10 per match and deposit a maximum of $150 in their account each month. The service also provides a ranking system that allows players to view other users' skill levels, and a handicap system to allow players of all levels to play against one another. To use the service, all players must be 18 or older, which Tournament.com enforces with special age verification software that is presented to all players upon installation of the client. To sign up for the service and for more information, please visit www.tournament.com.
