Reno, Nev (PRWEB) March 15, 2008 -
A Reno, Nev. entrepreneur has launched a new Website that uniquely combines two of today's most popular trends: sweepstakes and social networking. And in an interesting twist, he is also announcing the sell of his unprecedented Website: http://www.ScratchLotto.com.
"ScratchLotto is unique in that it brings together online social networking and sweepstakes," said Wesley Gregg, who developed the site and is CEO of Carbasis Inc. "It's also unique in that it will be listed on Ebay for sale on April 1 2008. If it sells, it will become the quickest launch and sell of a Website."
According to Gregg, ScratchLotto is the first social network for sweepstakes. It gives participants an opportunity to instantly win prizes for themselves and their friends--all free of charge. Participants, who must be 18, get one play per friend per day. A "Profile Photo" feature allows friends to see your face as they scratch your card. Prizes can be won on a daily basis and range from cash to music and electronics.
"The more friends you have, the more chances you have to win," Gregg said. "It gives social networkers the ability to put a personal scratch card on their MySpace profile for them and their friends to play."
ScratchLotto--which can be used with a variety of popular social networks--is designed to be a fun Website that gives people a great place to spend time online with friends. "It's a site where they can hang with their friends and participate in hopes of winning something--not just for them but for their friends, too," he said.
Although ScratchLotto is a new social-networking, instant-win game, its concept was developed by Wesley in 1999. About a year ago, he put the scratch game online for close friends, who played--as a joke--for cars, houses and a billion dollars. Then other people wanted to play. Now with the relaunch of the game, everyone can play ScratchLotto, and the prizes are real.
The launch and pending sale of ScratchLotto comes at a time when social networking Websites and online sweepstakes are immensely popular within the Internet community. Online sweepstakes hit the Internet in 1999 with the creation of Websites like FreeLotto.com and Luckysurf.com. Social networks such as MySpace and Facebook are a newer phenomenon that's taking the world by storm. Online sweepstakes and social networking sites attract millions of unique visitors each month, and industry experts predict the trend will continue to intensify in the future.
