We are excited to announce that managing digital in-app prizes can now be done directly in the GameOn admin console. Our goal is to make it even easier for community managers and non-development staff to entirely run GameOn tournaments without needing to write a single line of code. Once a game integrates the GameOn tournament and prize APIs, the entire process can be managed from the admin console.
Just log into the GameOn admin console, select the new option at the top called “Your Prizes,” and select your game — you will see all of your in-app prizes in the list. To create a new in-game prize, define the name of the prize, the unique info for verifying the prize in the game, and optionally a URL and a description. You can learn more about the actual process in our documentation here. After that, when you create a new competition, you can select the prize you just created. Finally, GameOn in-app prizes can be redeemed multiple times and reused across multiple tournaments.
Amazon GameOn is a set of flexible APIs that allow you to build cross-platform competitions into your games that drive engagement and increase monetization. With GameOn, you have an easy tool to strengthen your fanbase with leaderboards and leagues, awarding in-game and real-world prizes fulfilled by Amazon, and allowing players and streamers to create their own user-generated competitions.
