The Avios UK scheme and RedSpottedHanky have both launched facebook game competitions where prizes include £25 train vouchers and up to 100,000 Avios points.
Firstly the RedSpottedHanky ‘Happy Bunnies’ game:
This actually launched yesterday. By moving your cannon and shooting you can be entered into a competition to win £25 train vouchers.
There are 10 draws and you can play daily* until Sunday 16th March. (*Fridays include the weekend that follows them). You have 5 lives each day. The top scorer each day wins a voucher, as do three randomly selected winners each day.
Secondly, the Avios.com ‘Dropple’ game:
This launched today, which is day 1 of competition week 1. There are 9 weeks of competitions, each week the prize increases by effectively an Avios zone. 9000 Avios prize this week, week 9 has 100,000 Avios as the prize.
This is a game of chance not skill – if you play and record a score, no matter the score, you are in the draw for that week. The prize winner is then selected randomly from the entries. This is good because loads of people have the maximum 9000 – your score does not matter.
You can enter once per weekly competition, playing again to improve your score does not get you further entries, it does move you up the board, but this doesn’t seem to matter.
You can get a second entry per week if you share result with facebook friends.
