PlayCheckDirect.com's Got Game

[Vancouver, BRITISH COLUMBIA] Even though it has not yet officially debuted, PlayCheckDirect.com, a Web-based gaming and network marketing site, has already signed on several hundred customers throughout Canada and the United States, thanks to the burgeoning Internet network marketing and gaming craze.

A division of NetSeers Internet International, PlayCheckDirect.com, a turnkey, home-based business and entertainment package, has registered over 300 members in 8 provinces, 25 U.S. states, and 22 foreign countries since December. Users pay US $99 to register and US $25 per month for Web site hosting and related Internet services, which includes access to online gambling and Internet games.

The surge in online network marketing has created an Internet niche companies such as NetSeers Internet International are capitalizing on. According to a recent study conducted by Greenfield Online, 43 percent of respondents said they spend their time on the Internet playing games. Eighty-nine percent of online gamblers said they will only play if it's free, and the majority of those that do gamble spent less than US $10 per visit. A new survey report from Gemini Consulting and NUA Internet Surveys predicts the online entertainment market will increase by 64 percent this year.

PlayCheckDirect.com, which is scheduled to be unveiled this month, has been in pre-launch since mid-November, and is still beta testing its backend, or referral and matrix software.

After registering, users, or "member associates," are given a personalized, hosted Web site that serves as their Online Business Center. This provides access to Internet pay-programs, such as CasinoDirect and Play'n Games, which is a host of online play programs.

Members receive US $1.00 for every referred and non-referred member that signs on with PlayCheckDirect.com after them, up to US $500 a month. They also receive 50 percent of their referrals' income to a maximum of US $250 per month, per referral. Netseers Internet International Corporation earns a registration fee of US $99, for which members receive a discount package and their customized Web site, and a monthly fee of US $25 from each member for Web site hosting and access to the community features.

The company expects to register 100,000 people within the first year of operation.
