Playing Games At BoatUS.com Could Make You $25,000 Richer
Play ''DockIt!'' To Win
ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 17, 2009 – The nation’s largest recreational boat owners group and advocate says go ahead, have some fun on your computer — it’s okay for grown-ups to play video games at work. The boss isn’t looking.
Logging onto www.BoatUS.com and playing the online "DockIt!" game of skill now could make you 25 big ones, and improve your boating knowledge. Every time you play and complete one level of the game, you’ll earn one entry into BoatUS’ “Wave of Fortune,” a year-long sweepstakes with a $25,000 grand prize. But you only have until November 30 to play. The grand prizewinner will be drawn in December.
The DockIt! game gives players a choice of three boats to quickly and safely dock in a virtual marina slip, with progressively tougher docking scenarios. Hit a piling, run up on shoals or collide with another boat, and it’s all over. But if you can make it into the slip — each boat has it’s own unique handling characteristics — you’ve just improved your chances of winning the $25,000 grand prize as well as weekly and monthly prizes. Along the way you’ll gain knowledge on the rules of the road and other helpful boating tips and information. You can also earn one Wave of Fortune entry for joining BoatUS.
So go ahead. Go to www.BoatUS.com/games start playing a video game now. You deserve it.
Editor’s note to bosses:
If you catch your employee playing DockIt! during office hours, we kindly ask that you provide forgiveness and understand they may suffer from an infectious disease caused by the summer boating bug.
