keyboard_homespun_8_6RISMEDIA, August 6, 2009-Play an online game, win a house. It sure may sound too good to be true, but it is indeed a legitimate offer being made by a new website called

How Does Play4Property Work? Participants wanting to try to win the available house for that period simply register at the site, pay a $35 entry fee, and play a game of skill called “Spot the Ball”. In the game, players are presented with a picture of people playing a sport, like soccer. In the picture the ball has been digitally removed. The people in the photo are looking at where the ball used to be- and players have to determine the precise spot where the ball is and place a virtual pin as close to the exact middle of the invisible ball as possible to win. When the competition ends on the announced date, the Play4Property’s legal team and sports experts analyze the submissions to determine which participant’s pin is placed closest to the precise center of the ball.

The value of the available house depends on the amount collected in entry fees and is based upon the number of players who have competed in the game for that property. Properties can range in value up to $5 million.

There are actually two types of competitions people can enter at the site. The main competition, describe above, or players can try the Instant Win competition for just $7.50 per play. In Instant Win, if a player picks the exact co-ordinates of the ball, they instantly win a prize, such as a laptop.

Anthony Davis,’s Managing Director, says that the odds of winning at his site are around 1 in 15,000. That’s much better than the chances of winning the lottery (about 1 in 120 million). And unlike the lottery, this game actually requires the player to think. “It’s not all about luck”, Davis says, “which makes it much more fun to play.”

But the game isn’t just for those hoping to win a new house. Sellers can also use the site to market their home. Instead of wondering about buyers’ financing or dealing with annoying open houses, sellers can contact Play4Property, upload a description of the house and some photos, and their property can begin being viewed worldwide.
