Zowy.com Sponsored contest!

+ posted by njt in Site News on Apr 9, 2008 13:51


Bored? Why not win something!
Edit #2!
I got word from the people at Zowy.com and it appears that all the people going to it and using it like they did created something like a DDOS attack and so they had to take it off for the moment. Fear not though! The game should be back up soon, we'll update you when we know more. Thanks!

EDIT - read red part for an important announcement!

It appears some confusion is happening. First, there will be only 5 prizes given away for the "Manga Points". They can be seen on the "Scores" page. Other prizes (ones you can win on the reel) are listed on the "Prizes" page. Everything listed below are what we plan on giving away, if not this round, then the next :). -- Does this make sense? PM me if you still have questions~



MangaHelpers and ZOWY.com have been working together for a while now, and they've come up with a game that'd allow us to give our members something for nothing!

You can win prizes in 3 easy steps!

1. Go to this site.
2. Play the game.
3. Instantly win by matching 3 items together OR by getting the most points! Point contest will be over on April 30-31!! (See scores page to see who is winning!)

Once you get matching items just fill out your information, use your MangaHelpers username (only members of MangaHelpers can win) and you're all set!

****************************


So far we've decided on the following prizes that we want to give away! (Click an image to jump to that website!)

After each contest run, new prizes will be given out taken from the list below (Subject to get new prizes) This contest run you can win the items marked by this icon:

[table][tr][td][/td][td]1-5. Amazon Gift Certificates (100, 50, & 25)
We will be giving out not 1, but 5 certificates (different values). With these, you can buy anything on Amazon within the given value. We'll give 5 of these in the following values:
  1. $250, $150, $100, $75, $50
[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]6. Western Digital Passport 120GB Portable Hard Drive (~$74.99)
A 120GB Portable HD for you. Powered by USB 2.0, you can bring this sleek and stylish Portable HDD anywhere you go. With ample space, you can carry along your important files, documents and store anything you want.[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]7. Bamboo Fun (Small) Black Tablet with Pen, Mouse & Graphics Software (~$80.00)
Now there's a simple, easy, and fun way to harness your creativity. Bamboo Fun makes your computer your canvas, allowing you to freely express yourself by simply touching the pen tip to the tablet. Touch up digital photos, draw by hand, create artwork and paintings, and even write in your own handwriting.[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]8. Casio XD-470 Electronic Dictionary (~$178.00)
This dictionary is great for looking up unknown kanji (you simply draw what you see!) However, one major drawback is you cannot simply jump from your found kanji to the J->E dictionary. So you have to remember the pronunciation, click on the J-E dictionary and search through the various pronunciation until you find the kanji. Then the English meaning is displayed.[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]9. A Dictionary Of Basic Japanese Grammar (~$49.88)
A DICTIONARY OF BASIC JAPANESE GRAMMAR offers a new approach to the interpretation of Japanese grammar and provides, in dictionary format, a convenient reference of grammar-related expressions. Accurate and concise, the grammar explanations incorporate the results of recent research in Japanese linguistics.[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]10. A Dictionary Of Intermediate Japanese Grammar (~$42.50)
The only other difference between the two books (beside content) is the use of furigana over kanji instead of romaji. This is a very good thing for any student of Japanese. This book takes important grammatical points and lists them in easy to find alphabetical order. The explanations and examples are superb. It covers each grammatical point's various meanings in a clear-cut and orderly way.[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]11. Manga Studio Debut 3.0 (~$39.99)
The Best Way to Create Manga and Comics from Start to Finish! Imagine, draw, and publish manga and comic art with this affordable and powerful tool. Manga Studio Debut is the ideal solution for hobbyists and aspiring manga and comic artists.[/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]12. Bleach: Beat Collection the Best V.1 [soundtrack] (~$43.49)
With 24 tracks in this album, it's sure not to be missed! Direct import from Japan, through Amazon, we'll be giving this Sony's release as well. Enjoy it in your room, in your car or even when you're pretending to be a Shinigami in the shower![/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]13. Naruto In Rock Very Best Hit Collection [soundtrack] (~$53.99)
Right! The album from the Phantom Sound & Vision Studio, another direct import from Japan, Naruto In Rock! Just released in Japan on Christmas 2007, this is one thing sure must not to be missed by the die-hard Naruto fans! Just don't Rasengan anyone while you are at it![/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]14. One Piece Super Best [soundtrack] (~$54.99)
Think we gonna let the OP fans down? Never! Yet another direct import from Japan, yet again through Amazon, from Avex Track, we'll give the lucky winner this album, contains 28 tracks from the great One Piece anime! Gomu Gomu no Music![/td][/tr][tr][td][/td][td]15. Domo-Kun Plush Keychain (~$16.00)
Of all the great Domo-kun (Domokun) items, this very thick plush keychain mascot is one of the coolest. Standing an impressive 11 cm (4.25 inches) with a beaded chain that the top, he'll help keep track of your keys so you'll never lose them again. He's even great as just a child's toy or decoration as the chain is removable. A really special item for fans of Japan's most famous spokes monster, you'll love owning this amazing toy![/td][/tr][/table]

Notes:
1. If you win something that you aren't satisfied/interested with, we are giving you the option to exchange your prize with an Amazon Gift Certificate with the same value.
2. We reserve the rights to change the prizes to something else (with equal value) if the items listed above are unavailable, but we'll still give the option to exchange the prizes with Amazon Gift Certificates (see Note 1 above).
3. Read the rules found on the Zowy.com page if you have further questions, or PM NJT. Thanks!
4. Since this contest is done through a 3rd party, anyone can win. Be it staff or just a common lurker. Only catch is, you must be a MangaHelpers member!

#15. by HisshouBuraiKen ()
Posted on Apr 9, 2008
I think you do have to register on zowy, i *guess* with the same name as on MH? I don't see how it'd make a difference except to link one name across both sites. I hit a couple 250s already so watch out people! Oh yeah...are the other prizes on the reel just for show (since the person with the most points is supposed to win them according to the prizes page) or can you actually win them via the reels? I keep getting the cool stuff on my first reel and getting excited for .25 seconds ;P

#21. by njt ()
Posted on Apr 9, 2008
Right, you make your user name (or close to it) at Zowy.com. When you win we'll contact you at both MH and Zowy.com that way we can confirm you won the prize (maybe a picture of your new gift? :p) The things on the reels are real too^^ If you get all 3 then you win that prize automatically (and no, the start up position doesn't count :p)
#22. by njt ()

i've proly clicked this thing over 1000 times, and i haven't won anything buy manga points, i don't think you can win the stuff on the reels. i got 2 of one item numerous times i shoulda got 3 by now.
#24. by Katrak ()
Posted on Apr 9, 2008
7th spot is mine, and I'll be stopping for now. I suspect somebody'll pass me up in no time though. I've yet to get anything besides manga points, too. Wonder how hard it is to win something else?
#25. by njt ()
Posted on Apr 9, 2008
My guess is, they're not going to give the free-ones away so easy. So if you win it that way, you're truly lucky :D.

It's the "points" thing that's killing it. Now you know why most places do a "play 3 times a day" thing with user accounts and stuff. ;)
