CT 21st Century`s prizeWise.com Continues Impressive Launch

May 25, 2004 04:52:00 (ET)


LAS VEGAS, May 25, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Steve Rinehart, President of prizeWise, Inc., a portfolio company of 21st Century Technologies, Inc. (OTC:BB TFCT.OB), has advised senior management at 21st Century that the launch of the website http://prizeWise.com continues on a impressive course. He said, "We've had over 36,000 visitors to the website since Friday. Yesterday, we completed 15 sweepstakes, truly impressive for a new way of having fun on the Internet. And there's more...both prize posters and entrants come from coast-to-coast and north to south of these United States...New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Kansas, Illinois, Colorado and California are among the states of residence of sweepstakes winners and prize providers. A variety of items were won yesterday, ranging from DVD's, video game players, eagle statues, and other interesting prizes. In addition, we have altered and improved the browser feature on our website so that it now displays first the sweepstakes that are approaching completion, so participants can decide to enter "short fuse" sweepstakes if they so choose. This adds to the fun. The sign-up rate continues to be high. I cannot emphasize how impressive all this has been in the absence of advertising or promotion. Our ad campaign will be underway in the near future. We'll see enormous positive results from that, I am sure. Now, we are busily smoothing out the few wrinkles that have appeared. We'll be ready for the big crowd."

Kevin Romney, President and CEO of 21st Century stated, "We continue to be pleased by the showing that prizeWise is making. I see a brilliant future for this enterprise, to the benefit of our shareholders. These are exciting times."

PrizeWise.com is sweepstakes-oriented website at which participants may purchase valuable coupons and opt to obtain sweepstakes tickets which will allow them to enter various sweepstakes being operated at the website. 21st Century Technologies, Inc. is a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940. PrizeWise, Inc. is one of several companies which are part of the portfolio of 21st Century.

I just keep looking at the big ticket items being posted on prizewise. Each day I am counting the automobiles, its gone up from the low teens/low twenties pre launch to the 30s now. Big ticket items = cash for prizewise, that equals higher pps
http://prizewise.com/products.asp?c=5&s=16&sc=0&pg=1

Also, pre launch there were two homes up and now its 4.

PPS is Price Per Share. I do not think that some of you have realized the potential use of a site like this. They can host many different raffles for different causes. Some of these causes can attract NATIONAL advertising. In some ways it is BETTER than EBAY. It could become a BUY-OUT candidate. If I were YOU, I would hold on for the LONG-TERM this time. The guys who run this company are pretty sharp and know a diamond in the rough when they see one. Opportunities like this one do not show up everyday. I do not want to sound like a pumper but I can not think of any other BB stocks quite like this one. Maybe that is why it has NASDAQ listing potential written all over it. JMO.

I talked to Troy (@ 21 cent)yesterday and he told me they are already looking to upgrade the website so that it could handle much more traffic. He was pretty excited about seeing all the traffic.

The site is moving so slooww.. Must be a lot of traffic. It reminds me of ebay, what kills me is was I didn't invest back then but I was on their website from day one. Never occured to me to invest. Oh well that is how I feel about Prizewise. I guess its time for me to throw some money in now that I am registered. Exciting stuff.

does a penny stock ever go from a penny to a dollar in one day...i think not bam...long term investors should be rewarded with this one. I have been in on it for awhile now. Sure the stock went down on monday cause like any stock a 50% gain is huge and why not take some profits. Today it hasnt reversed again which is a good sign. Site is slow moving so i am guessing that is traffic that they werent ready for and the commercials will be out in June. Dont look short term on this stock.

From the website.....

Notice posted 5/25/2004

All Users:
We appologize for delays you may be experiencing acessing the site.

By the way, I am very addicted to this already I have a 1 in 9999 or something chance of driving a BMW again Much better odds than the lottery.

I cant wait to see if they put a counter on the website how many people are using the site. I love the idea of having a link to raffles that are close to going off. Looks like all positive news. Hopefully profit takers will be out of the stock after today and the rest of the week will be up up up!

Honestly, I dont see how anyone could bash this. Its an online lottery. Ohio Lottery scratch off tickets avg to be about 1 in 5 or so odds at winning a prize. Typically though, and im just guessing, that prize is only a buck or two. For odds where you are 10x plus winnings they are much much higher.

I will buy a ticket to see if they list the full odds in all prize catagories. But none the less, Ohio instant ticket games brought in 1.1 Billion dollars.

Not only is prizewise going to be winner in itself 21st Tech shows they like to make money with multiple revenue streams.

I have a question. This isn't bashing or anything... just asking for a greater understanding of prizewize.

So let's say I bid and win a house. And the house is worth $400,000 right?

NOW here is what I am wondering. Did I just BUY a house... ala ebay? Or did I just WIN a house ala the lottery? VERY IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE.

If I WON the house... aren't I subject to income taxes? Winning a house for $1 is great... but getting hit with 30-40% in income taxes could really knock a lot of people out of the box y'know?

So if someone would clarify that for me... thatnks a lot!!!

I found this information on the website (prizewise.com) under legal:
----
8.3 Taxes, Duties & Fees

All prize winners are responsible for paying taxes on the prizes they have won in their own jurisdictions. Winners are responsible for any additional fees involved in shipping the prize overseas, and also for any duties imposed on such prizes.
-----
I hope this will help answer your question. I for one am not worried about the taxes. It would be the same as winning the lottery or paying capital gains on your trading profit. There are taxes for everything. LOL.
