My name is Lola K. I’m 31 from Melbourne, Victoria.
I am currently studying bioscience at Latrobe University and a mum to my 5-year-old son.
For most of 2021 Melbourne was lockdown due to the Corona virus pandemic which meant we could not leave our home unless it was for work, study (if it could not be done from home) to get essential supplies, medical emergency, daily exercise for 1 hour, to get tested for the virus or to get vaccinated. We also had a curfew and could not travel more then 5km from home.
A fun hobby!
Like many Australians or even people in general, during this period of lockdown, I started playing games on my phone. A friend had recommended Prize Fiesta, which I did try a few years ago. At this time, I had just become a mom and had lost interest in it. So, I was contemplating whether to download Prize Fiesta but came across Prize Blast instead in the Play Store.
Real-life prizes game.
I was not convinced that it was real and actually sent people the prizes they win, so I was really just playing the game because I enjoyed it. Indeed, Prize Blast is a game very easy to play and understand. It’s like Toy Blast (which I already tried before), but with the pirate theme. Basically, you are a pirate, who must beat other enemy pirates in blast levels to collect bottles of pirate drinks. Thanks to these bottles, you advance and win the gifts of your choice.
Said like that, I grant you, it seems too easy. But I can tell that: it’s easy! You just need to have patience. I was, and I won 8 wonderful gifts!
Social links during the pandemic…
After a week, really quickly my piggy was growing, and I had completed the first 2 or 3 puzzles, but the others were taking a while. So, it was great when I came across the groups on Facebook where you can swap puzzle pieces with other players. I received help from other Prize Blast players who helped me finish my puzzles and I too helped others.
I find nice that there’s this social part that allows you to make friend and to have free bonus in the game. Thanks to the puzzles, I got a lot of pirate bottles that help me on my adventure.
I have made a lot of new friends from different countries but most of them are from France =) I speak to my friends sometimes daily through Facebook messenger, especially because we have five exchanges of puzzle piece per day.
An addictive game.
Even after the lockdowns were lifted, I am still playing the game and apart from winning 8 prizes, 6 have arrived already. I have to say that the most incredible one was the PS5! My first prize was an Alexa Echo which I love and motivated me to continue this game. I received my gift 2 weeks after winning it. Then, I also won an iPad, a polaroid Fujifilm, a Nespresso coffee machine, a smart watch, and an Oculus Quest 2. I have been addicted ever since.
I love the game and there is nothing negative I could say because it’s fun, the…
