Oodletorial – Players’ Pets

puppyloveHappy Friday! I hope it’s been a good week for you. We released a new game this past week called American Buffalo Slots. If you haven’t had a chance to play, check it out. It’s a lot of fun, especially if you get a stampede.

To go along with the game release, we’re featuring an American Buffalo Slots Oodlectibles game. Collect all 5 Oodlectibles for a chance to get 50,000 Tokens. The game ends Monday, Aug 11 so you need to collect as many of the set as you can by then. You can read the rules, and more about it here

Also earlier in the week, gazzanosusanlynn sent me pictures of her darling dog, Lucy, which was the catalyst for the idea to feature players’ pets. Send me a picture (or pictures) of your furry, fluffy, feathered, or scaly babies and tell me a little about them. My email is GSNAngel@GSN.com.  If I post your pictures on Facebook, or in Players’ Corner, I’ll award you 1,000 Oodles. I think this will be fun and I look forward to your pictures!

Have a great weekend, and enjoy the 777 Slots promotion running through Monday. Pictured below are pictures of Lucy. (Hint: if you click on pictures in Player News, they pop out larger). Continue reading – Continue reading

Oodletorial – Happy 4th of July!

10371268_10152108439910178_3480793714467487715_oHappy 4th of July! I hope you’re having a great day. Let me know what your plans are in comments.

I usually love 4th of July, and especially fireworks, but I’m discovering our new dog, Windsor, is deathly afraid of them. It’s going to be a looong night.

We just adopted him 2 weeks ago from the Humane Society. He’s a 6-year-old German Shepherd/Golden Retriever cross. He has the sweetest personality and loves everyone. That’s his picture on the right. 

I’ll be gone all next week. I’ll be back Monday July 14. GSN Scoop will be kindly filling in again. Please be patient if your comments do not show right away, as he’s doing this on top of his regular duties. Also, make a note of his outlandish comments when I get back! I still owe him, LOL.

If you have issues with ads, Token or Oodles credits, games, or the site in general, please be sure to contact Player Services for assistance. To contact them, click on GSN Help at the top of the main www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged on to your username so you can see the contact link.

BTW, I pre-schedule posts so if you see things posted by me, that’s why. I promise I’m not sneaking in and working!  Take care, and see everyone in a week.

Oodletorial – Auctions, and Sweepstakes, and Prizes, Oh My!

Happy Friday! I had a recent request from robovendor to do an Oodletorial on how the Auctions and Sweepstakes work in the Prize Center If this is something you’re interested in, hop into the Oodlemobile, and buckle up while we take a quick tour. Please be sure to keep hands and feet in the vehicle at all times. 😉

First stop is the Prize Center page. You can find it under the Prize tab on GSN.com, and it will look like this. You can use the arrow at the right hand side of the page to browse  top items:

Oodletorial – Last Scavenger Hunt Hint

scavendr_600x175Hello all! This week we had our first ever scavenger hunt on Player News. By their very nature, scavenger hunts aren’t overly easy. They can be challenging, and sometimes you have to sit back and look at it with fresh eyes.  

It went pretty well, and I’m told we have around 5,000 redemptions, plus it still goes until Midnight ET tonight. WTG everyone! I’m really proud of you for figuring it out.

For those still struggling, here’s the final hint  (and honestly at this point it’s a giveaway). When searching for that infamous “D” word, this is the page (click here) you’re meant to find your promo code on. You have until Midnight ET to redeem the promo code on My GSN so be sure to do it soon.

Sometime over the weekend, all the clues will be deleted from the original articles you had to search. Please remember how to “search” though, because any future scavenger hunts will utilize that. Also, it’s  a handy skill to have if you’re ever trying to find an older article or post on Player News.  

Have a great weekend all!

GSN Angel  🙂

 

 

Oodletorial – Perseverance

Dan Bledsoe 2013 mugWelcome to Friday!

I was entertained (and awed)  this week by an email from a player. His name is DanBledsoe, and he informed me he had earned 500,000 Tokens last Saturday watching videos. I didn’t even know that was possible!

By my calculations, if the videos were all 30 seconds long, he watched around 4 hours and 10 minutes worth, and if they were 1 minute long, it would have been 8 hours and 20 minutes. Splitting the difference, he could easily have spent at least 6 hours watching videos! Continue reading

I wanted to touch base tonight and let you know what’s happening this weekend if you’ve missed any updates. Please see the following:  Continue reading
