Playandwin.co.uk is a very modern website. It has been updated to include various multiplayer online games that are a pleasure to play and best of all, they're free. Another major enticement to join this website is the promise of weekly cash prizes. Each week, 1 lucky winner wins £100, 5 lucky runner-ups win £20 each and 2-5 people win £10 off the scratch card games.Getting started is simple. Just fill in simple details such as name, username, password etc. It shouldn't take a minute. Once you're registered, you're ready to start playing and getting points. What I like about playandwin is that it's so easy to find your way around the site. If you want to play a game, just click to the home page or online games page.
TYPES OF GAMESPlayandwin.co.uk offer quite a variety of exciting and modern games to play, including highly entertaining multiplayer games. Popular single player games, where you play on your own, risking no tokens, include: Egyptian Pyramids, various other card games like solitaire, poker, FreeCell, mah-jong as well as many arcade / puzzle games like diamond mine, balloon buster and playandwins's spin on the popular Tetris.
I particularly like Egyptian Pyramids, as, though it depends somewhat on the luck of the cards, it also depends on your own logic. Can you get through all of the cards before your deck runs out? More importantly, can you survive long enough to make sure you get a spin, where you get anything between 400 - 1000 tokens? The spin function exists in all of the single player games and adds an extra dimension / aim to the game.It's just a case of trying all the games out to see which you prefer - obviously, it depends on how your brain works, and which game you feel more comfortable with - a complex, brain puzzling word game, or an action-packed game of Egyptian Pyramids?
I gave up playandwin a while ago when I had blown 300000 tokens or so and still didn't win. I crawled my way back though, and am nearing that figure again today. But, when I rejoined, I noticed there were many new additions to the site. Playandwin had expanded their multiplayer games section to include games like Ludo, Bob and Whist. For a time, I couldn't get enough of Ludo, and spent hours on end trying to win a 10000-point prize. It's really engrossing, and people on the site tend to be very friendly and good sports. Ludo is just like the game of frustration, with added features such as being safe on the world spot, and zooming your way to the next star when rolling a star on the die. By far, this has to be my favourite multiplayer game.I don't want to make this review an encyclopaedia about every single aspect of every single game on the site. All I'll say now is try it out! You have nothing to lose, everything to gain (fingers crossed very tightly, lucky charms at bay) and a great atmosphere to experience!
FURTHER FEATURESOther things I noticed upon rejoining were: extra statistics including the number of players online, player statistics where you can boast about your highest scores, gloating and gloating until the next John gets a few points higher! You even have your own profile now, where you can post an image about yourself, tell people a little bit more about you as a person and even start adding friends and creating your playandwin network of buddies! You have a guest book and a mail box, and playandwin has really gone out on a limb to make each and every one of you feel welcomed on the site. Remember - all free?! Any one found abusing your guest book / mailbox can be reported and / or ignored - but, generally, everyone here are happy bunnies just wanting a bit of fun!
- Click and win
OTHER WAYS OF EARNING / WINNING
- Scratch and win
Scratchandwin gives you five cards a day, where you can earn nothing, 10, 100, 500, 1000 points or even £10 per card! A fairly interesting game, but don't hold your breath - no £10 for me yet... sob sob. Ironically, though I visit this site called playandwin, I tend to visit every day and do everything BUT play - I scratch and I click, then I move on!
- Tell a friend
Pop a message to a friend and you get 20 points per tip - not much really; a bit stingy I'd say!
