The latest Zynga game to offer major incentives for trying out CityVille 2 is Zynga Slingo, as players of Zynga’s slot-machine-meets-bingo game can now earn a variety of prizes, including unlimited energy, for trying and continuing to play CityVille 2 for a short period of time.
To be specific, Zynga Slingo players are being encouraged to play CityVille 2 until they reach Level 10, a process that should take no more than a couple of days of dedicated play. Along the way, they’ll earn prizes like coins and power-ups, but the actual Levels for each prize package are still unknown as of this writing. What we do know is that by the time your reach Level 10 in CityVille 2, you’ll be eligible for the following prizes in Zynga Slingo:
- 1,000 coins
- 3 Free Balls
- 3 Shamrocks
- 2 Automatch Boosts
- 1 Slingo Vision
- 1 Day of Unlimited Energy
If you’ve ever wanted to catch up to your friends on the Medals leaderboard in Zynga Slingo, that day of unlimited energy will definitely help you out. If you’re looking for ways to speed up your progress in CityVille 2 so that you can earn this unlimited energy boost faster, make sure to check out our CityVille 2 Cheats and Tips guide, or add yourself to our Add Me page to make new friends fast. Good luck!

The partnership between EA / Playfish and Cornetto in the Sims Social continues this week, as players are being encouraged to “Spin the Cornetto” to win free loot for their Sim’s pad. This all comes via the Cornetto Facebook fan page, where interested gamers can receive the free “Spin the Cornetto” item by clicking on a single link.
Once you get back into your game, you can find the Spin the Cornetto sign in your item storage. It comes with a Home Value of $ 1,170 and is worth 500 Social Points. Once it’s placed on your wall, you can click on it to see three action choices: “Confess Love” and “Share a Cornetto” both require you to have a friend over at your house to share the experience, while “Practice Spin the Cornetto” allows you to simply interact with the wheel for a chance to win free prizes.
Right now, it looks like the only item available to win via the Spin the Cornetto board are free Muses, but since these are required in bulk for many game features, that’s definitely not a bad thing. Plus, there’s always the possibility that this item could be updated in the future with additional loot items, so it’s definitely worth taking the few seconds to claim one just in case.
What do you think of this Spin the Cornetto board? Does your Sim live in a home full of branded items, or do you simply claim these items and store them away, never to be seen again? Sound off in the comments!
Last week, we brought you a detailed look at Madden NFL Social, EA’s second attempt at creating a free-to-play Madden game on Facebook that will launch on both Facebook and iOS later this year. If you can’t wait for the game to launch, you’ve likely already declared your love via the game’s Facebook fan page, but did you know that by liking the page, you’re actually helping to unlock items for yourself and your friends upon the game’s actual launch?
In keeping with the tradition set by other EA Facebook games, Madden NFL Social has a “Like Us & Score” promotion running on the fan page that will reward players with a series of bonuses once it reaches specific “Like” milestones. So far, the fan page has just over 16,000 Likes, so we’ve only unlocked one item so far, of the five that will potentially be available.
This first item is the Cover 4 Buzz play, and it will apparently be given to all players when the game officially launches later this year. The next prize comes at 50,000 Likes, and it’s the End Around play. From there, new prizes will be unlocked more slowly, at the 100,000, 250,000 and 500,000 marks. If the game reaches more Likes than that, I wouldn’t be surprised to see even more prizes added to the list, but this is what we’re dealing with for now.
I don’t know about you, but “free” is definitely one of my favorite words, so if you want to score some free prizes of your own, make sure to head over to the Madden NFL Social fan page and add yourself to the group!

With the launch of FarmVille 2 on Facebook, we know it can be incredibly easy to get lost in the 3D graphics, planting new crops and crafting yummy goodies, but if you can tear yourself away from the game for just a couple of minutes, there are rewards waiting to be claimed on the game’s official Facebook fan page. That’s right – free stuff!
Now that I have your attention, there are three free items available to claim on the FarmVille 2 fan page, accessible via the “Freebies” tab. Once there, you’ll see that you can claim a free Flower Barrel decoration, a Milk Bottle that will help you grow baby animals (likely a chicken or goat), and a bundle of five free Water, the game’s “energy” system, which must be spent to water crops and trees. Just in case this page becomes unavailable due to a mad rush of avid farmers seeking free stuff, here are the quick links to claim all three of these prizes.

It’s not uncommon for Facebook game developers to sweeten the deal for new players by offering free prizes at a game’s launch, and such is the case with EA’s upcoming JetSet Secrets, a “sexy” hidden object game that we gave you an exclusive preview of earlier this week. While we wait for JetSet Secrets to launch on Facebook, interested players are now being offered up to three free prizes for Liking the game’s Facebook fan page.
As has been the case with previous promotions (say, EA / Playfish’s The Sims Social promotion), additional prizes will unlock as more and more people Like the fan page. So far, the fan page has almost 42,000 Likes, which means we’ve unlocked a Romance Flower Pot for our games. If you share a news post about the promotion, you’ll reveal the second prize: a Rome Premium hidden object scene. Finally, for submitting your email for newsletters, you’ll reveal the third prize, which is a tropical Hot Springs item for our home world.
While we won’t be able to actually receive any of these items until JetSet Secrets actually launches later this year, it’s always great to get a head-start on a game (and the competition) before it’s available to play. If you’d like to unlock these prizes for yourself, simply head over to the JetSet Secrets Facebook fan page to begin.
What do you think of the prizes in this JetSet Secrets promotion? Have you completed all three steps to reveal the full trio of prizes? Sound off in the comments!
In Zynga’s second round of cross-promotional activities amongst its many games and Zynga Bingo, CastleVille players have finally been given some incentive to play Zynga’s Bingo game on Facebook, as they are now being offered three prizes for reaching Level 6 in that number daubing game.
Once you reach Level 6 in Zynga Bingo, you’ll be able to come back to your Kingdom in CastleVille and will receive two Gold Bricks, three Hypercrafts and a potion worth 30 Energy points. Remember, the different rooms in Zynga Bingo offer different amounts of experience points per number daubed, so you’ll want to keep track of how many points you’ll earn per daub, per room, in order to reach Level 6 as quickly and painlessly as possible.
There’s no guarantee that this cross-promotion and its prizes will be active forever, so make sure to play Zynga Bingo sooner, rather than later, in order to earn all of these prizes.
Will you try Zynga Bingo to earn free items in CastleVille? Had you already reached Level 6 before this promotion launched? Sound off in the comments.
