Optathlon Game on United's Website

My apologies if this has already been posted. It appears that there are new games on .bomb. They're actually pretty fun. Who has the high score? Which FTer? You can instantly win a variety of prizes including a 10% e-cert, which I just won , or for GMs, E+ access, RCC access, Premier Line, etc. You can also win a sweepstakes prize of (holds pinkie finger to mouth) 1 MILLION Miles!

Not surprisingly, 10% here, too. Does that mean UA is raising/has raised fares by 10% or more?

This is probably a promotion to match the recent AA 10% off coupon.

Scroll through the ads on the main page, or wait until it gets to the last one.

Most likely. I think they give one per e-mail. Very weird.

Did it prompt you to download Unity (et al) drivers? If not, your may have a browser issue. It's probably not going to run on 99% of our browsers without everything they want to load onto our PCs.

Thx - OP! A pretty fun set of games and an easy 10% code!

Thanks, I figured it out. Just had to close Firefox... I saw scores for iluv and exerda, to name a few.. By the way, how did you receive your 10% coupon?
