[] Mendham, New Jersey - Thought Quarry is pleased to announce Scratch Off Now 1.2, an update to their Instant Win Sweepstakes app for the iPhone and iPod touch. Players can "scratch off" the advertising message on their device to find out if they have won an Instant Win Prize such as an MP3 Gift card or iPhone accessory. Users who submit their email address collect points in both the Grand Prize Sweepstakes for an Xbox360, and the Second Chance Sweepstakes each time they play. There is no purchase necessary, and players can "scratch off" a new Instant Win Sweepstakes every 15 minutes. A powerful marketing tool, Scratch Off Now brings the Instant Win Sweepstakes to the iPhone.

Companies, brands, and marketing partners can leverage the Scratch Off Now platform to reach thousands of customers, raise brand awareness, and increase sales.
