WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- GSN Digital, the interactive division of GSN (Game Show Network), today announced Barbara Tomaras, a Doylestown, Pennsylvania-based IT Consultant, as the winner of its Premier Club Platinum Level Exclusive Sweepstakes. A dedicated member of GSN.com's Premier Club loyalty program for over three years, Barbara will take home a new car of her choice valued at up to $50,000.

GSN Digital's destination site, GSN.com, lets players play their favorite word, arcade, strategy, card and game show games for free, or compete against other players for cash and prizes.

"I was completely shocked -- I've never won anything this big, and never thought I would be this lucky. It was surreal," said Tomaras on receiving the news she was the sweepstakes winner. When asked to give a piece of advice to her fellow GSN.com players, Tomaras, who has been playing online games as a way to relax, said, "Remember that real people do win at GSN.com, it doesn't matter how many games you play or your skill set -- if you're having fun, the opportunity to win will come."

In claiming her prize, Tomaras, whose favorite cash games on GSN.com are Bejeweled 2, Solitaire Rush and Catch-21, decided on a Volvo C70 T5 from Keystone Volvo on South Main Street in Doylestown, PA. "I felt like a little kid when I was shopping for the new car," said Tomaras. "I'm excited to take it on a road trip and show my friends."

"Players come to GSN.com to have fun and experience the thrill of winning every day. The Premier Club is our way of rewarding our dedicated cash games players," said Peter Blacklow, executive vice president of GSN Digital. "We are thrilled for Barbara and excited by the opportunity to award her with our largest sweepstakes prize yet."
