Reliance Jio is making a foray into the world of eSports and online gaming tournaments. JioMart has announced the ‘Gameathon’ event where it will be hosting a Garena Free Fire tournament.

Jio Platforms has announced that the total prize pool for the tournament will be Rs. 25,000. The winning team will get Rs. 16,000, the runner up will get Rs. 8,000, and the MVP of the tournament will receive Rs. 1,000. All of those are tiny numbers when compared with the kinds of prize pools most eSports tournaments have. However, this tournament could still be a pretty solid step in bringing more eSports tournaments to India.

Moreover, since PUBG Mobile has been banned, this tournament can help highlight and advertise Free Fire — one of PUBG Mobile’s biggest competitors and definitely a game that’s hoping to fill the void left by the PUBG Mobile ban.

The tournament will see qualifier rounds starting from October 30, followed by quarter finals, semi finals, and grand finals on November 1. More detailed rules and regulations can be found at the registration page if you’re interested in entering the tournament with your squad.

By the way, if you are entering this tournament with your squadmates, be aware that if you do end up winning, Jio will be giving the reward money in your JioMart wallet which is just a little sad, at least to me.
