TRI-OMINOS 50TH ANNIVERSARY GOLDEN SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE STAYS IN THE METROPLEX
PLANO, TX – May 18, 2016 - To celebrate the popular three-sided domino game’s 50th year, a check for $3,500 is being given away to one lucky winner as part of the Tri-Ominos Golden Tile Sweepstakes, which was created to celebrate Tri-Ominos’ 50th anniversary.
Taylor Walker, of Richardson, TX, is the winner of the sweepstakes, which ran 10/1/15 through 3/31/16 on http://www.triominos.com/goldentile. Ms. Walker is a nursing student at the University of Texas at Austin, and she plans to use her winnings to help pay for her schooling. She entered the contest while her family was playing the game, which they bought during the holiday season because her father remembers playing Tri-Ominos when he was growing up. Ms. Taylor declined to state which family member typically wins their Tri-Ominos games.
With more than 22 million units sold, Tri-Ominos is a fast-moving game that adds a third dimension to the classic game of dominoes. The game combines skill and luck, is easy to learn, and is great for players of all ages – which means that kids can beat their parents fair and square (or should we say, fair and triangularly?).
“We received entries from all over the nation so it’s ironic that the winner lives less than 10 miles from our office, which makes for a great Texan way to celebrate an important anniversary,” said Jeff Pinsker, President of Pressman Toy Corporation. “Tri-Ominos continues to grow in popularity, so if the Taylor family is any indication this simple twist on a classic game has stood the test of time and still gets people excited about playing games.”
In conjunction with the Golden Tile Sweepstakes, Pressman also developed a free Tri-Ominos app, available on iTunes, Google play and Facebook. The download links are available at Triominos.com/app.
