That basically looks like it. Here's what the site says:

You sign up, become a member and start playing our free word, trivia and multi-player games. Club members receive tickets for playing games, which can be redeemed for prizes or donated to the charity of your choice. All games use Live Search, so you can see how Live Search offers a rewarding search experience.

Sort of.

It isn't one of those "points to search" sites though. They are basically word games. And every time you enter one of your answers on the site it automatically does a search on that word. Thus, creating ad revenue for Microsoft. It also helps pay for the prizes. You will see how it works when you open one of the games. The game is on top, and the search is on the bottom. It's kind of cool how it all works.

Not a win, but I got a free pack of Extra gum and magnet in today's mail for entering the Extra 3PM sweepstakes. I also got my W2 from my trip to Spain to the tune of almost $3500.

-I've heard you can have your tax preparer look up the fair market value (FMV) of your prize and you only have to claim that amount--i've never done this, but it's worth checking out!
