Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) launches GIGA Arena as the country’s first all-in-one esports platform for all Filipino mobile gamers. It will feature the four most popular mobile games in the country, such as Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, League of Legends: Wild Rift, Call of Duty Mobile (CODM), and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBGM).
The all-in-one gaming platform also comes with features that allow mobile gamers to set up tournaments, stream live competitions, play arcade games, purchase e-load, and even link their e-wallet to secure their tournament winnings via GigaPay with PayMaya, among others all thanks to Smart’s partnership with global esports company LEET Entertainment.
“Through GIGA Arena, we are giving mobile gamers a venue to showcase their skills and talents, which many of them devote time and effort to hone. This is aligned with our commitment to enable our subscribers to pursue their passions and live the Giga Life,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.
“We have designed GIGA Arena to be as dynamic as the esports scene, so our subscribers can expect more innovative features aimed at delivering the best mobile gaming experience,” she added.
To access GIGA Arena, subscribers can go to gigaarena.smart and create an account using their Smart or TNT mobile number. To join ongoing tournaments, users need to use ‘tickets,’ which they can earn and accumulate every time they register to GIGA Games data packs.
The GIGA Arena is open to all Smart and TNT customers where users can match up with other players and compete in the daily, weekly, and monthly tournaments on gigaarena.smart and win cash prizes. Registration starts on March 9, 2022.
Smart has also announced the enhanced GIGA Games, which now includes data for PUBGM, on top of Mobile Legends and Facebook Gaming. Smart and TNT subscribers can register to GIGA Games via the GigaLife App, which is available for download on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and Huawei Mobile Services. Customers may also avail themselves of GIGA Games by dialing *123#.
