[prMac.com] Sunnyvale, California - Dobango introduces play2Win 1.2, which lets you play games to win real rewards - coffee at your favorite Cafe, dinner at a restaurant, massage at a local spa, and discounts from national retailers.
Dobango launched its 30-second play2Win app on its web site in July 2011. Since then, more than 1,800 monthly active users have signed up. The company has added more than 200 retail establishments and restaurants including the Gordon Biersch Brewing Company of San Jose, California, and BlueLight Cinemas in Cupertino, California.
"In this tough economic environment, social gaming offers compelling benefits for merchants," said John Flood, vice president of business development at Dobango. "Our Dobango platform lowers the cost for businesses to participate in the deal space. We don't take huge cuts like Groupon. Merchants decide when to run an offer. They're in control. We charge a flat-rate monthly fee."
"It's a simple game. Everyone wins. And, it's free," Flood said. "Our app makes it easy for players to win rewards. Every time a player shares with a new member we offer a $1 reward. High scoring players win gift cards, movie tickets and discounts at restaurants."
Dobango's apps expand the arena for the play2Win game suite by taking advantage of the inherent power of social media. Users can play tournaments, challenge their friends, share and post comments. Every game is linked to a prize or discount at local retailers.
Dobango company analytics indicate that users have played more than 10,000 times. The play2Win app currently runs on iPhone, Facebook and the Web. Android and iPad versions are in development.
