(OTC Bulletin Board: BIGR), a fast-growing entertainment site and game application service provider (ASP), today announced that a study from Media Metrix has positioned the company as the ‘Stickiest Site on the Web’ for September 2000.

It is extremely gratifying to be rated on top, in terms of average monthly usage, for the third time in six months by three different measurement services.”
