GSN Games has linked up with the makers of Tetris to launch a real money and social version of the classic video game.
Tetris Burst is the first official Tetris game that allows players to enter skill-based Tetris tournaments against other players for a chance to win real cash prizes.
GSN said that Tetris Burst brings a “fresh, fun experience” to the iconic puzzle game.
Maya Rogers, president and chief executive of Blue Planet Software, sole agent for The Tetris Company, said: “We are continuously working to bring new Tetris experiences to fans.
“The introduction of Tetris Burst, which gives players the opportunity to put their line-clearing skills to the test for a chance to win cash prizes, is an exciting addition to our growing line-up of Tetris-branded games.”
Greg Canessa, senior vice president of skill games at GSN Games, said: “As Tetris is one of the world’s most popular games with hundreds of millions of fans, I know that both new and current players alike will be thrilled to see how they stack up against other Tetris Burst players in cash tournaments.
