All games support pay-for-play with virtual arcade style tokens. Players collect points, called Bling, for winning a game. Bling can be redeemed for prizes using the PrizePlay Rewards Service(TM) directly from the mobile phone or via the web.
"Star Trek is one of the most widely recognized franchises in the history of science fiction entertainment," said CEO of Sennari, Bill Barhydt. "Bringing our PrizePlay(TM) model to Star Trek fans who have a natural affinity for cool technology like mobile phones should make an easy decision for carriers who want to offer customers the very best in games and entertainment."
