Microsoft's new BigSnapSearch search engine, giving you prizes galore


Those kurazy comedic chaps, Dick and Dom, are the latest ‘stars’ to be cuddled under the big feathery Microsoft wing, as they’ve lent their name to a microsite launched by the big M, BigSnapSearch.

When used as a normal search engine, it gives users the chance to win prizes such as paintballing excursions, Virgin vouchers, and even a holiday for two to Richard Branson’s Virgin getaway, Necker Island.

Like a Snap card game, when a pair of matching cards are shown after your search results, users will win the aforementioned prizes, with one being won every hour of every day for eight weeks.

It is, of course, powered by Microsoft’s Live Search, so if you already use that as your default search engine, you’d be a fool not to bookmark this one instead!
