Playing video games fulfils a lot of purposes in the lives of many, this includes relaxation, opportunities to exert control, enjoyment, creativity, socialization, prevention of boredom, challenge, making money and achievement.
Making money from playing video games is very much possible, for professional players, yes but you don’t necessarily need to be a professional player before you can earn from playing video games. As long as you are good at playing one or more video games, you can earn money with the help of “Playarone.”
Playarone is a social gaming platform that facilitates head to head matches and tournaments of skilled based video games across a variety of gaming platforms, allowing players to win cash prizes by playing and winning against similarly skilled opponents in their favourite video games while also improving their skill level by climbing up the leaderboards.
Only skill-based games available on the PlayStation, Xbox, PC and mobile are available on Playarone. Some of the featured games include COD Modern Warfare, PES Mobile, 8 Ball Pool, Warzone, Fortnite, Call of Duty Mobile, PUBG and a host of others.
How it works
To get started you have to visit the official website, register and make a free account. Once you’re in, you get to choose your preferred games you would like to receive and create matches/tournaments for (Signing up on Playarone is free and you’ll get a N1,000 start-up bonus).
On your homepage, you can see already created/recommended matches and tournaments of your game choice to easily join. You can also create matches of your choice by clicking the create match button on your home page or left side menu.
Once that match challenge is accepted by another user and match entry fees have been deducted from both users’ accounts to combine in a secured match account, a chat window is opened automatically between the two opponents in your messages. Here you can discuss with opponents to add up each other and chat about any rules or advantages you want to agree on outside the match rules.
The created match is also available in your timeline where you can request a cancellation or confirm the win/loss of the match, and also read the rules of the match again.
When the match is over and the winner is confirmed by both parties, the winner’s playarone account will receive the winning amount immediately.
There is a different set of rules for Battle Royale Shooters. It’s essentially a kill-race mode, you/both teams join the same public lobby, play a full game and the player/team who has the most kills by the end takes home the win. If you both end with the same amount of kills, then the player/team with the most damage wins.
When there is a loss of connection either by power or internet disruption, in cases of sports titles and 1v1 TDM games the match is replayed again as a continuation of the previous disrupted game i.e the remaining time is played with scores still standing as it was.
For battle royale games, the match is only replayed if disconnection occurs in the pre-game warm-up before the real game starts. In case of disconnection during the actual games, a restart is not possible and it will be treated as death hence your kills stand as your total kills.
You are encouraged to be certain of uninterruptible power supply and good internet during the use of our service. Despite all of this, you can still choose to play with a poor connection, but you will do so at your discretion and risk.
Using the platform is completely free and no subscription fees for now, however, 10% of the match win is always taken by the platform i.e If a match of 1000 Naira is created and is accepted, the total win payout would be 1800 Naira.
