To participate all you need to do is download the Dobango play2Win iPhone application from the Apple App Store, then play short fun games and compete with people locally for deals available from Dobango partners. Real-time leaderboards tell you how your score compares with the rest throughout the tournament. Play as many times as you want – we’ll save all your scores each game.
Win deals and discounts from our partners just for playing the game. When the tournament is over, the top scorer wins the sponsored prize. Redeem the prizes and deals at our partner’s business. Have fun playing and winning – it’s easy!
Prizes include things like free pizza, concert tickets and $25 gift cards from rei.com and pacsun.com… oh and Ikea. Who doesn’t love stuff from Ikea?
