Congratulations to Gamesviller Jwckdc15 of Redwood, MS, who received a late holiday weekend jackpot $810 jackpot yesterday in CatchUp CoverAll!
Jwckdc15's hometown of Redwood, MS, is just north of the city of Vicksburg. Because of the city's location on the Mississippi River, its reputation in the 19th century often rested on the river's steamboat traffic. Between 1881 and 1894, the Anchor Line, a prominent steamboat company on the Mississippi River, operated a steamboat called the City of Vicksburg. In 1876 a Mississippi River flood cut off the large meander flowing past Vicksburg, leaving limited access to the new channel. Learn more about Vicksburg, MS…
Congrats again to Jwckdc15–looking forward to seeing you all in the games this week!
From our homes to yours, Merry Christmas from the Gamesville team!
This week's Best Pet comes to us from Gamesviller TerriB325 of Warren, MI. Meet the very relaxed "Chillin"!
Distinguishing Personality Traits
TerriB325 had this to say about her furry friend: "This is my baby, 'Chillin'! He couldn't have been given a more fitting name. He just chills, chills, and chills some more. The only drawbacks to having a full-blooded Persian is that his hair gets everywhere and he is very high maintenance. I usually have to brush him everyday and groom him so that looks like a baby lion. I have never felt closer to an animal than this cat. He is very perceptive thought and knows just when I need some TLC. He is truly the joy of my life."

If you're lucky enough to score a new computer this holiday season, a) we're jealous! and b) you're about to enter a whole new world of entertainment and information. So we thought we'd share some helpful tips to help maximize your Gamesville experience on your new computer:
- Because of the size and speed of the games Gamesville is best viewed in a 1024×768 minimum resolution, with a DSL or better network connection.
- Gamesville uses pop-up windows for essential parts of gameplay, including the game rooms, table selectors and elsewhere. For help with pop-up stopping software see this FAQ.
- Firewalls protect your computer but can also prevent Java games from loading properly. If you need help configuring your firewall software to allow access to Gamesville, please consult your system administrator or the documentation on your firewall software.
- Almost all of Gamesville's games are created using the Java programming language, so you can play them in your web browser. For help with Java-related issues, see our Java FAQ.
- Most Gamesville games use Java; however, a few notable games are powered by Flash, including Magic 21, Super Chef and Quick-Draw Poker. For help with Flash-related issues, see our Flash FAQ.
- A special note for laptop and netbook users: it is reccomended that your hardware contatin 2 gb of memory to optimize your experience.
Should you run into any problems that are not addressed by the above suggestions please visit the full Gamesville help section or let us know by contacting Gamesville customer service.
Congratulations to Gamesviller Tsmustang2 of Leitchfield, KY, who received an early Christmas gift to the tune of a $335 jackpot this morning in CatchUp CoverAll! And she wasn't alone, as four other lucky members joined her with their Lucky Ball selections and each took home $25! Congratulations to Gamesvillers Jackpinemom, Bsnell, Abbynormal-bot-brat and Mschardnae1 on their stocking stuffer wins!
Tsmustang2's hometown of Leitchfield, KY, was once the source of some world record controversy when in 1955 a local fisherman caught an 11-pound, 15-ounce smallmouth bass, a pound larger than the previous record. However authorities found a document suggesting the fish had been stuffed with three pounds of lead weights to falsify the fisherman's record. The fisherman was stripped of his title, but after a six-month investigation, which even included lie-detector tests, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency found conflicting evidence and said the world record should be reinstated.

Congrats again to Tsmustang2 and her Lucky Ball Friends!
Some of you have already noticed a change we've made to our Recent Winners pages with the addition of coin icons to the left of each winner's Gamesville member name. We've created this fun color-coded system to denote whether a winner is a free member or a GV Gold subscriber at the time of their win.
Taking a quick look at the Recent Winners lists you can see while it still pays to go gold and treat yourself to an ad-free gaming environment, it will ultimately not effect your chances of winning a jackpot here on the site.

A mysterious 'UFO' seen in the sky over Moscow this week has sparked speculation that an alien spacecraft is visiting the city. The UFO appeared on December 9th, the same night that a mysterious blue spiral light appeared over Norway that was later attributed to a failed rocket launch from Russia. The fuzzy grey shape was apparently captured on film in at least two separate videos, one filmed during the daytime and another at night, which has lead to the growth of the story.
