Ulysses13 is December’s Merry MVO!

Congratulations to  Ulysses13, our Most Valuable Oodler for December. Here she is pictured with her oldest dog, and the Golden Oodle that will be hung on her Christmas Tree. Read on to learn more about her!


Every morning I grab a cup of coffee and I wake up to GSN.com. It has become a morning ritual to play Bingo Bash where I get to collect my daily login chips, my 1,000 coins for playing in the tournaments, and just enjoy my mornings before the rest of my family gets up and things get hectic.

Also, I love the Oodles Bonus Trivia questions where you can win 50 Oodles for each question answered correctly.  There are usually 2 questions in the morning, and additional questions throughout the day. In the later part of the afternoon, you can get the secret word from the Player’s Corner and score another 50 Oodles. Right there are over 200 Oodles without really trying and with having fun and learning new trivia facts as well.

My favorite games to play for Oodles are Spliterature, Bookworm, and Lingo. I have always loved playing games as a child and now as an adult I’ve found other games that entertain me, teach me things, and that test my skills. It doesn’t take a really high score to win Oodles and believe me winning 10 or 25 Oodles on each game each day really adds up fast. I have won Oodles by also playing the scratch off tickets and although I have yet to win a “big one,” you have no chance of winning unless you try. The Wonder Wheel is also a great way to win lots of Oodles and my favorite game is Horse Play where I’ve won as many as 77 Oodles in one game. You get one free spin a day, win oodles, and have fun at the games.

Often times I collect Oodles by watching the 30-second videos, which are often entertaining, and they usually advertise products that I have actually tried. Also, do not forget GSN ChaChingo Bingo where everyone has both a chance to win real money and Oodles for just getting one out of six numbers. I have yet to pick more than 2 numbers, but you can’t win if you do not try. I really enjoy the Oodles Collectibles and I buy them every time a new one comes out. I enjoy looking at my collection each day and I look forward to see what new ones GSN will come out with next. I will be entering the Friday Players’ Pets contest, which offers a chance to score 1,000 oodles if chosen, and I hope one of our pets becomes featured soon.

The best part of GSN.com is the ever-changing variety of games to keep everyone entertained. Often times when I am stressed out, exhausted, or just not having a good day, I start playing on GSN.com and my day brightens up. For someone who has never really “won” anything before, being chosen as December’s MVO is a great honor and I still cannot believe my luck!

    • Thank you so much! Argos is a rescue from the SPCA about 2 years ago and he is a big joy to our family! Happy holidays to you and thanks again! BTW, for fun you can look up the name Argos in Greek mythology to see why my husband named him that . . .

  1. Congrats! I also like the word games. My family is competitive 🙂
    Please come by & say hi to some fellow MVOs on
    FellowOodlersChat forum. Enjoy that golden oodle too

  2. Congratulations! I was MVO about two years ago…. it’s fun!

    FYI: You actually get *two* spins of the Wonder Wheel each day… one for logging in and another for playing a game of “Straws”. If you play those two Wonder Wheel games each day you have the potential to earn 150-160 just from those!

    Again, enjoy your special MVO month!

  3. Warm holiday welcome to the MVO family. Great tips! On that bingo though, let me know when ya get six numbers…that must be my problem, I only pick 5 tee hee hee Awe, but to remember the reason to the season ~ Best wishes n enjoy!

  4. Congratulations on being December’s MVO!! I was November’s MVO and trust me, this will be a month you’ll never forget! I really enjoyed your story and your dog is absolutely beautiful!! I wish you the very best of luck in the future and hope that your dog will be chosen for the players pets soon. Have a very Merry Christmas and I’m so happy for you! God Bless!!

    • Thank you for the wonderful 2 messages! Your November MVO story was very entertaining. Your enthusiasm for your family and life is obvious. Thank you again and the best of the holidays to you and your family!!

  5. Congratulations on being December’s MVO!! I just absolutely love this picture of you and your dog with the golden oodle in hand! I was November’s MVO and I promise you this will be a month you’ll never forget. Enjoy every single moment of it and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!! Warm Regards from me (aka mexicansuzita) to you!!

  6. Congratulations on being December’s MVO! I love your pic with your dog! thanks for the game play tips. Have a wonderful month and happy oodle kind of day. 😉

  7. I just wanted to say “Sorry” for the double comment (although I meant every word!) but I tried to delete one to re-write it and they both posted! Anyways, Congratulations again and Happy Holidays!

  8. Great going on getting picked as MVO! I am positive you will get picked for pets corner very soon. I LOVE your dog!!!! I am a pet lover also. I have 3 cats and 3 dogs myself. A tip for getting more oodles, try all games that have oodles by them on the game page. You might find a few more you really like a lot. I try to do 15 games every day for the leaderboards. Some I do very well and get 75 oodles or more each day. some I might only get 25-35 for, but every oodle counts. lol Have a wonderful holiday season and watch out that Argos doesn’t start chewing on your golden oodle! lol

    • Thank you so much and thanks for the great tips! I started playing some of those other “oodle” games. My family also has 3 dogs, 3 cats, and my daughter’s horse. The dogs and cats were all rescued from the SPCA and we just love them to pieces! Thanks again and happy holidays to you!!

  9. Congratulations and Welcome aboard to our newest MVO from a past mvo….
    Enjoy the Honor and shiny Golden Oodle, the Month will slip by before you know it.
    My goodness what a picture …. Argos most certainly looks like he does not let anything slip by his “all seeing” most certainly focused at attention stance.
    Thank you for all your tips ……
    Having a wonderful Christmas and enjoy * Enjoy * enjoy *

    • You nailed Argos’ personality! We adopted him from the SPCA when he was 3 years old (a little over 2 years ago now) and I was a bit apprehensive over that focused look he gave! My husband wanted him and he turned out to be unbelievable. He is very intense and focused, but he has never hurt anything! When people see him on his daily walks, they all know him and he wags his tail like crazy. We also adopted 2 boxer-pit puppies for my 2 kids and Argos has raised them and protected them like they were his own! Thanks again and happy holidays!!

  10. Dear Angel,
    Just wanted you to know that I did not receive my one million tokens after completing B4 Christmas. I let customer service know. Has anyone else faced that problem?

    • Hi Tinman2013, I have heard of that happening. Usually if you leave the game, and return it shows up. But reaching out to Player Services is a good thing if that doesn’t happen.

  11. Congratulations! I’m just curious if your dog is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. We had one and she was the BEST DOG EVER! We adopted her from a local animal shelter and were sorry to lose her to cancer after having her for seven years. May you have a blessed holiday!

    • Yes, we were told that Argos was a “Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix” and we guessed the mix was with Pit Bull. Our former neighbors had a Rhodesian Ridgeback and Argos has the ridge on his back. He is a gentle giant!! Sorry to hear about the loss of your dog, but I am sure he had a great life with you!! Rescues make great family members because they appreciate everything!!! Best of the holidays to you!!

    • Thank you very much and congrats to you for the honor, as well! The Golden Oodle is very unique and a “once in a lifetime” honor. My kids thought it’d be fun to take photos of the dogs wearing this “bling” . . . Happy holidays!
