Its not gambling, but it
feels like it. WorldWinner.com takes a new approach to online gaming. You play for money
if youre good, you could probably take a lot. If youre no good, or even
if youre just average good, you might end up whittling away your purse. Overall,
WorldWinner.com adds a whole new dimension to online gaming.
The basics are simple. You
can sign up for the site, or not, and play a variety of fairly common online/parlor games.
Games include: Brickout (i.e. a Breakout clone), Solitaire, Chess, Checkers, Free Cell,
Darts, Jigsaw Genius, Tiles, and more. These games are generally familiar to most of the
population, and the way they play on WorldWinner.com is about like any other online games
site. WorldWinner.com does manage to work in some nice perks, such as being able to change
the background on your cards, but otherwise works like any gaming site should
its simple and straightforward. Most importantly, its nice and quick, and over
a couple weeks of play it never locked up or gave me blank pages.
You can play on WorldWinner.com for free, which is a must for newbies. Getting the hang
of the games and understanding how the scoring is done on each game is essential to be the
optimum competitor. Most games are played against a number of other users, although you
generally play on your own screen (this is obviously not the case with the games like
Chess and Checkers, which play like they do on most other sites). You can play all of the
games either for free or for money.
The stakes arent exactly high at WorldWinner.com. For between 50 cents and a
couple of dollars you can enter a variety of games. There are brackets for Rookies and
Advanced players, which actually could be a problem. If folks on Yahoo! Games snipe
beginning players just to improve their ranking, imagine what could happen when money is
on the line. Still, things seem to work pretty well so far. The low cost of getting into a
game is excellent, especially since you will tend to win 150% or more back if you
Overall, its a pretty decent set-up, and more reliable than gambling. If you know
you have skills at Chess or Brickout, why not put them to the test? Perhaps the best thing
WorldWinner.com has going for it is their introductory account, where you get $5 to play
with for free. Those initial funds could last quite awhile if you know what youre
doing, and if you play carefully. But either way, WorldWinner.com has created a
streamlined, easy-to-work and easy-to-look-at site that is a lot of fun. Whether
youre interested in the money or not, check them out.
