|Casual games publisher PopCap Games has announced that online skill gaming website WorldWinner.com has become its exclusive North American provider of cash competitions following an agreement that will also see the launch of a new co-branded area of its website.|
WorldWinner.com is a subsidiary of Fun Technologies and the agreement will see it develop and host cash competition versions of additional PopCap titles next year.
'Our cash competition versions of PopCap.com's casual games including Bejeweled 2, Chuzzle, Dynomite! and Big Money consistently rank among the most popular with WorldWinner.com players,' said Peter Blacklow, President of WorldWinner.com.
'By further developing our relationship with PopCap we are able to expand our list of popular game titles and deliver new ways for PopCap.com and WorldWinner.com players to enjoy their favourite games for cash and prizes.'
The new partnership will see PopCap customers granted access to WorldWinner.com’s platform where they can join millions of players already competing.
“By incorporating a different aspect of competition, WorldWinner.com creates additional excitement and community elements that appeal to many players of our casual games,' said John Vechey, Director of Online Operations for PopCap.com.
'PopCap.com customers who have become experts playing the online or downloadable versions of our games can now prove their skills by competing against thousands of players around the world for cash and prizes as well as bragging rights.'
