NEW YORK, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- In an effort to give hundreds of millions of online gamers even more reasons to play, IWON.com launched a revamped site today featuring the Internet's biggest cash giveaway. The 217 million Internet users who play casual games can now instantly win cash and a wide variety of prizes simply by doing what they love -- playing their favorite online games for free.

With more than 80 free games to choose from, players can find the perfect game for them on the all-new IWON.com -- from classics like Blackjack, Poker and Solitaire to current favorites such as "Bounce Out" and "Collapse." Given the wide variety of choices available, the site is designed to be the premier online destination for the casual gaming community to gather, play games, and win great prizes.

"The site has been reinvented to appeal to the third most popular use of the Internet -- casual games," said Tim Allen, VP of IWON.com. "IWON.com is the first site of its kind to combine casual games with a way to instantly win tons of fantastic prizes."

In addition to offering players a wide variety of game choices, the revamped site will also provide visitors with many different opportunities to win -- from Instant Win Games such as the "Spin2Win" prize wheel, to Progressive Jackpot drawings and Bonus Games, to Daily, Monthly, Weekly and Annual Sweepstakes drawings.

Allen pointed out that with increased chances to win, players will find that just a quick five-minute work or study break could make them a big winner.

"In developing the new IWON, we determined that not enough members were shouting 'I Won' on the old site," said Allen. "Now we plan to give away millions of dollars each year to thousands upon thousands of individuals. Right now, we have someone yelling out 'I WON!' every 45 minutes! It's like being in Vegas, only without the risk."

In the coming months, the new IWON.com will incorporate social networking features that will make winning money a social experience.

Since 1999, IWON.com has given away over $70 million in cash and prizes to its users, hosting an annual $1 million giveaway.

Founded in 1999 and re-invented today, IWON.com is part of IAC Consumer Applications & Portals (IAC CAP) and is a wholly owned business of InterActiveCorp .
