IF YOU SPENT YOUR SUMMER MONTHS training for that five mile run, then you’re more than ready to take on United’s new collection of online and mobile games, called the Optathlon. Trade in your running shoes for a computer or mobile device for a chance to win 1 million Mileage Plus miles or one of the 1,000 daily prizes, instantly.

Go to games.united.com to play the five interactive video games based on some of our favorite Travel Options by United. Play Legroom Legend and juggle objects in front of your spacious Economy Plus seat, or try Line Jump Hero to see how far you can fly to the front of the line for Premier Line access. Multiply your miles, fly your bags or just relax when you play the games from Award Accelerator, Door-to-Door Baggage and Red Carpet Club.

Away from your computer? No problem. Just download the free Apple iPhone or Google Android mobile apps and play on the go. You’ll have a chance to unlock unique prizes instantly, including Economy Plus upgrades, Premier Line access and Red Carpet Club passes, when you play the mobile games on the day you fly. If you’re one of the lucky customers, show your “Instant Win” prize screen to a United customer service representative and receive your prize immediately.

On your mark, get set and go to games.united.com on your computer, iPhone or Android mobile device and play to win instantly with United’s Optathlon.
