Mobile gaming is pretty big business in Africa. It’s maybe a little looked down upon by the ‘hardcore’ contingent but when it comes to introducing competitive gaming to the more casual gamer, mobile is probably the best place to start. Fortnite has featured on mobile at Rush and Vodacom World (and elsewhere), and now BMW is sponsoring a R50,000 Asphalt 9 series for Android.

 

The series is being operated by ACGL, and sees R25,000 prize pool up for grabs per season. Season one is already well underway with the final week of qualifiers running on 11, 13 and 15 September. Securing a top ten fastest lap in a week grants you an invite to the final week’s race for the R25,000 cash prize pool. The season finale will be hosted on 18 September, and season two registrations open on 25 October.

Seasonal Prize Pool

The R25,000 for a season is distributed as follows:

  • 1st Place: R10,000
  • 2nd Place: R7,000
  • 3rd Place: R3,000
  • 4th Place: R2,000
  • 5th Place: R1,500
  • 6th Place: R1,000
  • 7th Place: R500
