Playfire blazes through the ONE MILLION rewards mark!

London, UK, 7th May 2014  – Today, the world’s fastest growing digital retailer Green Man Gaming is celebrating giving out over ONE MILLION rewards as its Playfire Rewards BETA  continues to benefit thousands of gamers worldwide.

To date, over 170,000 participants have joined the BETA, and are enjoying earning credit as they play, regardless of where they purchased their game!

This credit can be used towards anything on the Green Man Gaming site where customers can also earn credit for writing game reviews, referring friends, and trading in digital games.

"It's great to see so many people positively engaging in the BETA, and the number of participants is rapidly growing every day" said Ben Bateman, Playfire Community Manager. "Passing the epic one million mark shows gamers are not only actively playing the games they love, but are discovering new games, whilst their feedback continues to help us create a dynamic and unique rewards system."

From Friday 9th May, in celebration of the launch of the game, Playfire Rewards BETA participants can channel their inner combustable demons, and earn up to a hot £5.00 in Green Man Gaming Credit by playing  Bound by Flame , developed by Spider Studios.

Other rewards on a range of titles are updated on a daily basis. Full details can be found on the  Playfire Blog.
