7-Eleven Co-Sponsors Online Gaming Giveaway Event
EVERETT, Wash. -- GameSamba, publisher of online, free-to-play video games, is giving away 7-Eleven items such as Slurpees, energy drinks and corndogs through its end-of-summer event Septemberfest, the company announced. Other prizes include Blu-ray and DVD box sets from FUNimation and the grand prize of an Alienware M11x gaming laptop.
"We are really excited to join forces with these awesome brands", said Reed Albertsen, brand manager at GameSamba. "We worked hard to bring prizes that are relevant to our players and fans. Free stuff is great, but free stuff from these sponsors is a perfect fit."
Septemberfest started yesterday and will run through Oct. 7, when GameSamba will announce the grand-prize winner. GameSamba is giving out daily and weekly prizes throughout the event. The grand-prize laptop will be awarded to the player who captures the funniest moment or "sickest frag" in a screenshot, according to the announcement. The GameSamba staff, community and event sponsors will vote on the winner.
The company is kicking off the event with a sale on its virtual currency, Sambas, during the Labor Day weekend.
