Consider yourself a Big Brother Aficionado? Then Prove It and Win Big at Pikum.com Wednesday 25 June 2008 PDF Print Was Alex the most loathsome Big Brother housemate ever? Is a new crop of housemates waiting in the wings? Will one house mate crack under the pressure and take a walk? Fans of Big Brother are finally to be rewarded for their die-hard dedication by being able to predict what’s going to happen inside the nation’s most loved – and loathed – house, with Pikum!, the online game where you compete with friends to predict what's going to happen. Join other fans of the show and use your insight to predict how the machinations will unfold. Play for fun, or ratchet up the stakes by playing against other fans for real money. In each Pikum the best predictions take the prize pool. Pikum players so far are divided over who they think will be voted out next with Rex and Mario both with 50 per cent of the predictions. It’s expected there’ll be dozens of Big Brother Pikums for you to take part in throughout the series, and you can always create your own to play with your friends. To win the prize pool of cash or Pikles, all you have to do is be the closest at predicting outcomes such as: Which contestant will be voted out next at this week’s elimination of Big Brother? Will a contestant walk out this week of Big Brother? Which contestant will finish in first place during this season of Big Brother? Will the winner of this season’s Big Brother nationality be English? Sean Glass, founder and managing director of Pikum!, says: “Big Brother has a cult following and over the course of a series viewers really get to know the contestants inside out. Now they can turn this knowledge to their advantage and win cash by out predicting other fans, or they can bet with Pikles and prove to their friends once and for all who’s the boss of Big Brother.” You can also play Pikums on a wide range of sports, including football, tennis, rugby, cricket, Formula One, boxing, and mixed martial arts. Pikum! continues to add events in the entertainment, sports, and current events categories weekly. Pikum! launched in beta on 6 May and can be played at www.Pikum.com.
