UPROAR Unveils FREE Multi-site Online Bingo Game: Bingo Blitz.

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 28, 1998--

Bingo Blitz Helps Sites across the Web Boost Traffic,

Retention and Ad Revenue

UPROAR, the leading producer of online game shows, today announced the launch of a massive networked Bingo game to top web sites. Bingo Blitz will build off the success of Trivia Blitz, UPROAR's fast-paced trivia game applet already in syndication on 8,000 sites. Bingo Blitz affiliate sites will earn revenue through ad banners served and sold into the game by UPROAR's ad sales force.

UPROAR's syndication program is an ideal solution for large sites looking to add content, generate repeat traffic and increase ad revenue. UPROAR's turn-key solution gives sites a multi-player game, without the programming and upkeep. Charter participants include EarthLink (http://www.earthlink.com), Cendant's World Opponent Network (WON) (http://www.wonnet.com), and the Centre for the Easily Amused (http://www.amused.com).

Says David Becker, president of UPROAR, "Game shows are the new hot property on the web and nothing is simpler to play than Bingo. With UPROAR's unique syndication program, sites get ad revenue, great content and valuable demographic information simply by adding a few lines of code. Nothing could be easier."

Starting today, Bingo Blitz will also be available for free play at http://www.uproar.com, with new games starting every 15 minutes. Once players complete a free registration process, they become eligible for more than $350 in daily cash and prizes. Chat is integrated into the multi-site game building hours of play and community. Participating sites will not be charged a fee to join the program.
