Zookt, Where Shopping and Gaming Merge to Offer a Unique Experience, Launches Online

Users can play classic games like Hearts and Bingo for a chance to win great deals on popular products.

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 02, 2012

People who want to have fun and shop for great deals on a huge array of products will want to try Zookt (http://www.zookt.com), a new casual gaming site launched last month that combines shopping, entertainment and great deals.

Zookt lets people play games to win deals. Zookt is unique from other deal sites because it lets consumers shop for the deal they want, then compete against other players in live games to win their deal.

Anyone who registers with Zookt instantly gets 100 free Zooks, or virtual points that players can use to bid for items.

“Play games to win deals, and have more fun shopping for the products you love. Those are the simple ideas behind Zookt,” said Ahmad Chamseddine, founder and CEO of Zookt. “For people who ask, ‘Where can I get a deal on a laptop,’ or ‘where can I get a deal on an iPad,’ they now have an answer. We are excited to launch and invite thousands of people to have fun shopping and playing for deals.”

Zookt offers discounts of as much as 90 percent off popular items from a wide range of categories. For instance, a player can pay an entry fee of $10.25 for a chance to win a Canon PowerShot A1300, $9.90 for a chance to win Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic 7-Cup Food Processor, or $7.23 for Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. The wide variety of prizes for games can be shopped online at http://www.zookt.com/products.

While Zookt offers great deals, it also adds a new dimension to casual gaming, because players know the odds, the competition and the product they are playing for. Zookt games also offer a social gaming experience, because users play against multiple people in live games and can share their experience with friends and followers on Facebook, Twitter and other social channels.

How Zookt Works
●    Users go to Zookt.com to shop for the deal they want. They can choose from thousands of new products in practically any category, including technology, electronics, apparel, home goods and jewelry.
●    Players then select one of three games to play - Bingo, Hearts or Random Color.
●    Players pay a small entry fee to play for their deal or as an Alternative Method of Entry, players can play for free by earning enough free Zooks to satisfy the entry fee.

Earning Free “Zooks”
Zookt offers many ways that users can earn virtual points or “Zooks,” which can be applied to entry fees:
●    Referral Zooks - Anyone who shares Zookt with friends earns 30 Zooks and, if referred friends play Zookt within a week, earn 2500 Zooks.
●    Earned Zooks - For every game that players win or lose, they earn free “Zooks” to apply to future entry fees.
●    Feedback Zooks - Players who provide feedback at the end of every game can earn 20 Zooks.

Zookt plans to include more games based on skill and luck in late 2012. The site also plans to launch on Facebook as an application.
