Daraz has partnered with PayTM launching Daraz First Games, offering access to a number of free-to-play casual games in a wide array of genres — racing, action, shooting, and arcade. Alongside free access, Daraz users can win exciting rewards including Daraz vouchers of up to Rs. 1,600.
Daraz mentions the surge in users in different gaming apps over the last few months to be a prime reason for launching the Daraz First Games platform in collaboration with the PayTM First Games, one of the world’s leading gaming platforms.
The company will be able to leverage PayTM’s superior technology and experience in digital gamification. Similarly, Daraz users don’t have to hop around different applications, hence enjoy all kinds of games on a single platform.
Gamers can participate in two different modes — tournament mode and 1-on-1 mode to challenge one another online. Daraz aims to connect thousands of Nepalese over online tournaments while practicing social distancing at home.
However, it is accessible via the Daraz Android app only. Therefore, Android users can follow the given steps and play:
- Download and install the Daraz app from the Play Store.
- Open the Daraz app and create an account and login.
- Toggle on the Daraz First Games icon on the homepage.
- Select a game to play and win to achieve points.
Vidha Pradhan, Head of Traffic Operations at Daraz Nepal about the Daraz First Games stated, “Our main objective is to provide Daraz users with the most engaging and fun games that the world has to offer. There’s no doubt there’s a high demand for digital entertainment, and we want to ensure that Daraz users have easy access to it. We’re also sure that this new venture serves as a catalyst to further develop the country’s technology industry.”
Similarly, Sudhanshu Gupta, Chief operating officer at Paytm First Games said, “It is our mission to bring the most engaging and innovative games and experiences to mobile gamers. Mobile gaming has been growing in the South Asian region and we endeavor to partner with players who share the same mission. We are thrilled to partner with Daraz to launch a world-class gaming experience in South Asia and hope to replicate the same success with games like Ludo and eSports.”
