As the holiday edition of Point Inside’s in-app Mallopoly game drew to a close, entries poured in as people claimed places, shared the app and viewed places in hopes of winning the Daily Prizes and/or the Grand Prize. Yesterday, a random drawing of all the entries from the Mallopoly game was held and Dave Curry was selected as the winner of the $1000 Grand Prize!
I was a little surprised that I didn’t hear back right away, after all, $1000 is a big deal! This morning I received a delightful email from Dave saying that originally he thought the congratulatory email was SPAM, but after some research, he found that we indeed are a legitimate company. Good thing you didn’t delete the congratulatory email Dave!
In his own words, Dave is “a truck driving family man who enjoys doing projects around the house.” He found the Point Inside Shopping & Travel app for his Droid when he was searching for a place to eat at an unfamiliar mall. He started playing Mallopoly while bored at the Detroit Airport and one of his places was randomly selected as the Winning Place – the Microsoft Store at Bellevue Square.
More about Dave:
“I make my living driving a television production truck all over the United States covering sporting events for all of the major Networks (ESPN, NBC, FOX, CBS, NASCAR). I was actually just in Seattle near your offices for the Monday Night football game on 12/12 ! With my job I am always finding myself in new places. That is why I find Point Inside so helpful. I use it in shopping malls & airports to find everything I need. Before using Point Inside I would always be searching for a directory or just wandering around, searching.
The most important things in my life though is my family. I am very blessed with a wife(Amy), two children of my own(Gianna 4 & Christopher 1) & a step son(Tristan 15). When I am not at work I am spending all of my time with them.
We purchased a house last year 40 miles east of Pittsburgh, PA. I spend a lot of time remodeling & doing projects around the house which I enjoy.
The picture above is My Daughter & I on a picnic last summer.
I would like to thank everyone at Point Inside for this prize. I am planning on spending it on a family vacation this spring or summer.”
Dave – we’re so excited that you are the first ever Mallopoly Grand Prize Winner and are sure you’ll put the $1000 American Express Gift Card to good use!
