VS Gaming Masters prize pools revealed

Following the announcement earlier this week of the prize pool for the VS Gaming Championship, the prize pool for the Masters has at last been revealed. After nearly nine months of battle, the CS:GO and Dota 2 Masters teams will each battle for their share of the R600,000 cash up for grabs.

There’s an additional R20,000 cash up for grabs for the winner of the upper bracket in the double elimination playoffs.

This prize pool now takes the total cash prizes on offer by VS Gaming at Comic Con to over R1.85 million. This is a “new record prize pool” according to the announcement, that “makes the VS Gaming Masters and Championships the highest prize pool for gaming in South Africa, topping that of the VS Gaming Festival, which sat at R1.5 million. In 2018, VS Gaming have now awarded over R3 million in prizes across 10 titles.”

Prize pool per CS:GO and Dota 2 Masters playoffs:

  • 1st Place: R200,000
  • 2nd Place: R100,000
  • 3rd Place: R60,000
  • 4th Place: R55,000
  • 5th/6th Place: R47,500
  • 7th/8th Place: R45,000

The VS Gaming Masters and Championships are scheduled for 14 to 16 September at Comic Con Africa. The action will be played out on two stages at the event with live stream broadcasts to be confirmed.
