Discus Champion: A New Viral Game

The Olympic fever is catching on and online casinos are jumping on the bandwagon to cash in. King Solomon's online casino has launched a new viral game, Discus Champion, which simulates the discus throw event at the Olympics. The game has been designed by Tampa, an expert organization in viral games and viral marketing.

The Discus Champion is perhaps the first viral game developed for an online casino. A viral game is a web-based game that is passed on to friends, family, business colleagues and even unknown people through the Internet. Each person passes it on to several and the game spreads like wildfire. Along with providing entertainment the game acts as a promotional piece for the originator. Hence this should prove to be an innovative way for increasing traffic at King Solomon's online casino.

Discus Champion tests who can throw the discus the furthest as in the real Olympic event. Online players can select the country they want to represent. They then get three attempts to throw the discus as far as they can. They use two arrow keys to set the discus thrower in rotation and then press the space bar to release the discus. Hence Discus Champion is a game of skill. If the discus is released too early then it will not go far. If the space bar is pressed too late the player may overstep resulting in a foul throw. The total distance covered in the three throws is the player's score, which determines his ranking on the leader board. King Solomon's online casino offers a range of prizes every month, which include a Wii, PSPs, Ipods and digital cameras. Discus Champion captures the reality of the Olympic event with stunning effect. The graphics are sharp and the animation is perfect. The audio captures the roar of the crowd, but can be turned off if required. The scoreboard and the text comments add to the realness of the situation. The greatest satisfaction comes when the player makes it to the top of the leader board.

King Solomon's online casino will run a different competition every month so as to keep the interest and excitement levels high. There will be different prizes each time so that past winners are encouraged to continue. Players are also encouraged to take part in the viral marketing by recommending Discus Champion to their friends. Those who do so are entered into a monthly draw to win even more prizes. Further, players who download the casino games from the prizes page of Discus Champion get €15 free.

King Solomon's online casino was established in 1998 and is one of the oldest and most reputed online casinos. It is celebrating its tenth anniversary by offering a Mega Draw for a chance to win a Mini Cooper car and other great prizes.
