If you’re at QuakeCon but not competing in the tournaments, maybe you're there to just enjoy the atmosphere. However, you could still be in with a chance to win some amazing prizes. Three lucky winners in particular will walk away with $10,000 in cash!
Ventrilo, the voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) communication program used by the gaming community in tournaments and multiplayer games, is sponsoring QuakeCon 2014’s seventh annual “Ultimate Power Up” sweepstakes. One hundred attendees will be entered into the sweepstakes for their chance to be one of three randomly selected winners, each receiving the grand prizes. $10,000 for just being there, with even just a bit of luck attending this FREE event could net you a fantastic cash fund.
“We’re thrilled to once again work with Brian Knapp and the amazing team at Ventrilo to give the world’s most passionate gamers their chance to win $30,000 in prizes,” said Tim Willits, studio head at Id Software. Players at QuakeCon will be treated to the world’s largest LAN party in the B.Y.O.C area and with gratitude from Willits who believes that “it is the passion of the gaming community that continually sets QuakeCon apart."
We’re excited to be able to give back to the fans who make this event possible year after year. Tim Willits
On July 19, The “Ultimate Power Up” winners will be randomly selected as part of the QuakeCon tournament finals event on the Ventrilo Main Stage. A total of 100 prizes will be up for grabs during the event, so make sure you stay active at QuakeCon because only a one out of 100 chance stands between you and $10,000. Remember: “YOU GOTTA BE IN IT TO WIN IT!”
Last year as part of the sweepstakes, two lucky winners received a 2013 Ford Focus ST. The 2013 Ford Focus ST came equipped with a six-speed transmission and 252 horsepower engine with a full tech package including heated leather seats, HID headlamps, 8" navigation system, push button start, and Ford SYNC technology. The sponsors are determined to make the con a memorable event and are willing to splurge in the right places to reward their loyal fanbase.
We're excited to have the opportunity to show our appreciation to the gaming community that helped make Ventrilo what we are today ... the Ventrilo team is honoured to once again return as a QuakeCon sponsor and offer fans the chance to win this year's Ultimate Power Up prizes. Brian Knapp, President of Flagship Industries
