GSN (Game Show Network) is all about fun and games! Established in 2004, the network has been busy for the last ten years, creating a site with a lot of great games and a lot of compelling content. One great thing about all the things you can do on GSN is you will never be bored when you are there, however for newer members it can almost be intimidating!
So for newer members they have put together a simple guide for First Timers.
It breaks down into three categories:
1) The Basics
2) Where To Get Help
3) What To Do
As the name implies, games are the pillar of the
They have a wide variety of casual and casino games with multiple genres. There are popular games like Bejeweled 2, Mahjongg Dimensions, Wheel of Fortune, Video Bingo Deluxe, and a whole bunch more!
You can find the games are sorted by genre, such as Arcade, Word, Casino, and Game Show Games they are also separated into 2 main categories, which are Free Games and Cash Games. Easy Enough!
TOKENS, OODLES, AND CASH, OH MY!
The biggest eye catcher on the home page of the website is the game screenshots and you will notice right away that on some of the games you earn Tokens, while on others you earn Oodles, and in some cases you earn both!
Tokens function like cash in the GSN Casino you can win em and you can lose em! Dont you worry though, you will never be lacking in opportunities to replenish your account with Tokens!
Oodles are the Game Show Network currency, and they are winnable and spendable just like currency!
You earn Oodles playing the games and you can redeem them in the Prize Center. Oodles can also purchase entries in special auctions and/or sweepstakes! For more information there is an Oodles 101 section on the website, along with some tutorials to explain some of the finer details step-by-step.
I think it is safe to assume we all understand the functions of this one!
You can actually play for cash on the Cash Games, as the name implies In order to do this you are required to upgrade your account by making a deposit. Once you have made a deposit you are able to play in tournaments and to place real money bets on the Cash Games.
WHERE TO GET HELP
On every page within the website there is a link to the Help Center at the top offset from the center to the right.
There is also an extensive collection of FAQs (Frequently asked Questions) page on the website I checked this out and there are answers to a considerable amount of questions that may (or may not) arise, and it is always a good idea to check there first; this is a definite time saver for you!
Quite often, new members have some questions right away and a large assortment of answers can be found in the FAQs section very quickly.
However, if the answer to your question cannot be found there, or maybe you have an issue that requires more personal attention simply click on the Contact Us Navigation Tab, and give the support agents as much information as possible so they may serve you better.
THINGS TO DO
Upon Joining visit your personal account pages to see the daily Oodles offers. You will also see a tab for My Promotions, and going to this page is where you will find opportunities to earn Oodles by participating in one of the offers listed.
A good first step for new players is to visit the To Doodles page here you can earn oodles of Oodles by playing a few quick games, answering trivia questions, or by entering the hourly ChaChingo Bingo drawing. As I mentioned earlier in this article you can also earn Oodles by just confirming your email address.
A few suggestions for games you might enjoy playing are listed below:
If you love slots, start with Tiki Island Slots – its like taking a vacation to a tropical island. Prefer Bingo? Then youll want to give Video Bingo Deluxe a try, where you can choose up to 3 cards, and complement your gameplay with a variety of power ups.
For something fast-paced, try Catch 21, where you speed through the deck in order to make as many 21s as you can before the clock runs out. If you fancy something a little more leisurely, you might enjoy Outlaw Video Poker.
If you enjoy matching tiles, give Mahjongg a try. For a super-fun match three game, try Zen Gems.
If words are your thing, then try out the classic Bookworm! Looking for something really challenging? Give Spliterature a try.
