Free Online Family Friendly Game to Win Real Prizes Similar to TV Game Shows



As a really busy mom blogger and social media strategist I don't have much time to play on the Internet for fun. But when I was asked to review a new game called Reel Cash Critters County Fair Slots on the Gamesville site for this blog I accepted the opportunity to check it out.

Using your GV Rewards earned by playing various free online games offered by Gamesville, Reel Cash Critters provides a virtual slot machine experience where you have lots of options on how many lines and how much per line to bet on the slot machine. An assortment of colorful fruits, yellow rubber ducks and other cute icons comprise the various images that you'll see rolling by on the screen each time you push the red spin button to play.

To enjoy this you need to make sure you have a strong network connection, Adobe Flash Player 10 or above and a 1024 x 768 screen resolution. Be patient when the game loads. Despite having the parameters mentioned above it took me six attempts before I was actually able to play the game and it  took my brand new Mac Mini almost five minutes on that last attempt to load the game the first time I actually got to play it. According to  Gamesville's help tab which I consulted when I received a CTHL error message, if anything breaks up the connection, like a network hiccup, that connection will be lost and you will experience a "CTHL" error.

Be assured though that playing the game, once it has uploaded properly, is easy. To start, first all I had to do was click the "play now" button.  Starting with the bank of 6000 accrued points I had, I tried various combinations of betting but after just 10 minutes was successful in losing all my virtual money and hitting Rock Bottom.

My personal experience hopefully will encourage you to bet more carefully than I did because just like in Las Vegas this one armed bandit can take everything you have very quickly. Have no fear, though, the good news is that if you get down to zero like I did, all you have to do is play more Gamesville games to earn the GVs to start playing again.

I didn't win a monetary prize when I tried out the game but Gamesville says that cash prizes will be awarded at random with a specific set of cash prize symbols having no relation to the GVs you've wagered. These real money awards are given in sums from $5 to $10 in $1 increments and if a cash prize is won, there is a pop-up notification alerting the winner.

I only skimmed the surface myself of Reel Cash Critters' potential because of limited time to test it out. However, for serious gamers with all the opportunities to compete and interact with other members of this online community, I imagine this can be really fun and could be habit forming.

Like a variety of other games Gamesville offers, you can play Reel Cash Critters County Fair Slots for free. With the Gold Membership option you can enjoy the added benefit of an ad-free experience. Another bonus of being a Gold Member is that you can visit the Gold Room every day for a chance to win a cash prize for GV rewards. In fact, today before I started playing the slots, I won 700 GV Rewards in the Gold Room. So I entered them all -- along with the 30,000 GV points I had in my account -- in this month's sweepstakes for a chance to win a Panasonic Lumix LX5 camera.

About Gamesville

The difference between Gamesville and traditional TV game shows though, is that everyone has the opportunity to play to win real stuff.
