Absa, rAge Expo and ACGL (African Cyber Gaming League) have partnered to bring gamers the Absa Gaming Festival which officially kicked off on 30 April 2022 and is set to run for a period of seven weeks. The high stakes online tournament also comes with a whopping R60 000 in cash up for grabs, plus additional giveaways valued at over R50 000.
The festival is an opportunity for pro and casual gamers alike to enter the Fortnite, FIFA 22, Apex Legends or the Best Plays competition to compete for a chance to win their share of the prize pool.
“The response to the inaugural Absa Gaming Festival has been very encouraging,” says Christine Wu, Managing Executive for Customer Value Management at Absa Retail and Business Bank. “At Absa, we pride ourselves on constantly leveraging technology to bring possibilities to life for the diverse communities we serve. Against this background, we encourage gamers from all around the country to take advantage of this incredible opportunity to win some really wonderful prizes.”
There is also R11 000 in prizes up for grabs in the Best Plays competition. The purpose of this competition is to enable gamers who are not participating in the esports tournaments to share in the excitement – and the spoils – of the festival.
Here is how Best Plays will work:
Step 1: Play your favourite game
Step 2: Record your best play in that game
Step 3: Upload your video to Twitter with a caption of your choosing and the hashtag #ABSAbestplay
