Banesto (officially Banco Español de Crédito, S.A., "Spanish credit bank", BMAD: BTO) is a Spanish bank, 88.4% owned by Banco Santander. Currently Banesto is the fifth-largest banking group in Spain, operating around 1,770 branches.
Outside of Spain, it is remembered as the sponsor of a cycling team that featured Miguel Indurain, the first rider to win five consecutive Tours de France. Today's Movistar team is the direct descendant of this team.
Banesto acquired Banco del Pacifico in 1991 and renamed it. In 1993 it bought Banco de Concepcion, but the merger was suspended when Banco de España suspended Banesto. When Banco Santander acquired Banesto, Santander sold Banesto Uruguay, Chile, and Banco Shaw in Argentina. In 1994, Banco Santander sold Banesto Chile to Banco Hipotecario de Fomento de Chile (BHIF). In 1998 BBVA bought BHIF.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
