There’s been a lot of esports events in the country lately, with CSGO and DOTA 2 being the most watched and popular games. We have the ESL India Premiership, the ILG LAN tournaments, and so many more tournaments to watch and awe at the performances of the professionals. But what happens when people play a tournament consisting of casual games we have all played and grown up with? That’s what Nodwin Gaming is trying to accomplish, in association with Amazon, called Amazon GameOn: Masters India.

The Amazon GameOn Masters: India consists of five casual games – Ludo, Real Carrom, World Cricket Championship 2, World Table Tennis and Jetpack Joyride. There will be 4 online qualifiers for Carrom, Table Tennis, World Cricket Championship and Jetpack Joyride, while there will be 2 online qualifiers for Ludo. The qualifiers start from November 23, so go ahead and register yourself while you still have the time.

The total prize pool is of 5 lakhs, out of which 1 lakh goes to the winner of each game. Winners of the qualifiers get Amazon credits that can be redeemed at the Electronics category of Amazon. The top 8 players from the qualifiers of each game in GameOn Masters: India will book their slot for the finale in New Delhi.  The finale unfolds on February 3 to February 5, 2019 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.
