Good morning,

Sweepstakes Internet portal, which gives cash prizes to Web surfers using its site, said on Tuesday it is paying a $2 million prize to a Washington state woman who doubled the usual monthly giveaway through a special promotion.

Mary Johnston of Kenmore, Wash., became the 11th person to collect a million-dollar prize from iWon, which is rapidly building a huge following with its daily, monthly and yearly cash prizes.

Johnston raked in an extra $1 million for signing up for a long-distance telephone promotion with Sprint Corp. <FON.N>, iWon said.

Launched about 11 months ago with backing from CBS Corp., the U.S. television network recently bought by entertainment giant Viacom Inc., the iWon gives away $10,000 a day, $1,000 weekly prizes, a $1 million monthly prize, and plans to award a $10 million yearly prize.
