Avios has launched a new Facebook game – Avios Dropple.
Fundamentally, it is a silly arcade game where you have to catch falling objects, suitable for anyone with the mental and motor skills of a 2 year old.
Here is the official description:
Become a Master Avios Collector by catching everyday items in your basket as they fall. Play each week and attempt to reach our Avios target, then enter your score for a chance to win thousands of real Avios in our weekly prize draw. This game’s just for fun – it’s a game of chance not a game of skill so you won’t have more of a chance of winning at the top of leaderboard. And soon you could be flying for real.
So, to summarise, it doesn’t matter what score you get – you go in the prize draw anyway.
The prizes over the nine weeks are:
Week 1 – 9,000 Avios
Week 2 – 15,000 Avios
Week 3 – 20,000 Avios
Week 4 – 25,000 Avios
Week 5 – 40,000 Avios
Week 6 – 50,000 Avios
Week 7 – 60,000 Avios
Week 8 – 70,000 Avios
Week 9 – 100,000 Avios
The game is restricted to UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man residents over 18, except for Northern Ireland residents. You only get one entry per week however many times you play the game, plus a 2nd bonus entry if you share your score on your Facebook page (you can set it up to only share with yourself).
To be honest, I am not desperately impressed. The game itself is hardly challenging. With only one weekly prize (and a chance of winning of probably 1 in a 1000 at best), the prizes – at least in the early weeks – are pretty unexciting. If there were 100 x 9,000 point prizes available, I’d be more impressed.
However, it will pass a couple of minutes in undemanding fashion. To play, search for ‘Avios Dropple’ when logged in to Facebook.
