bwin launches Real Madrid Facebook game


By playing this new social network game, Real Madrid fans can virtually follow the journey of their team on their way to their 10th Champions League victory and win real prizes.

Vienna, 3 November 2010 – bwin, the world’s leading listed online gaming provider, has launched the “Raise up the 10th” Facebook game. Facebook users can join Real Madrid’s journey to their 10th UEFA Champions League™ victory and become part of the team by creating their own virtual and personalised players who will then take on a number of challenges.

The main task is to gain experience and ranking by completing training tasks, answering quiz questions, challenging other players and placing live and fixed odd bets for fun on the Real Madrid Champions League games to earn match points. All virtual activities are linked to real-world content such as exclusive statements from Real Madrid players Arbeloa, Benzema, Kaká or Özil, as well as match forecasts and direct messages to the fan and social gaming community. On top of this, players can gather collection items which help them to complete tasks and generate more ranking points. The top-ranked players will win a variety of “real” Real Madrid-related prizes.

The first-placed player will receive two tickets for the Champions League final at Wembley Stadium in London. The rest of the prizes are just as attractive: special Hospitality Packages (tickets, accommodation and flights) for Champions League away games, signed Real Madrid balls and jerseys, as well as several personalised Real Madrid jerseys.
