Ways to use your e-wallet to give you that sweet edge for gaming!

GCash is giving out advice to future e-sports players as well as hardcore mobile gamers out there to maximize your spending habits wisely!

Gaming and computers in general have evolved to a point that even your phone can do intense gaming nearly as good as a handheld console does. Also, everything has gone digital now. Heck, even your wallet is digital. There are so much services e-wallets offer including paying your bills and topping up credits for certain games. Now, there’s no need for you to line up or go to a store to top up or buy in-game currency.

With that, there are different ways to make that gaming experience more immersive, giving you an edge amongst other free-to-play gamers (now you’re considered pay-to-win, good luck defending that answer).

Also, you can make money simply by streaming online. Top gamers including professionals constantly stream their games and plays to their fans by using several platforms such as Facebook Gaming and Twitch. This may seem intimidating at first but with the right equipment and the right skill, you too can become a popular streamer.

And this is why e-wallets like GCash exists. They make your life easier on the get-go. Today, the company is sharing its advice on how to be at an edge versus other players!

Buy new in-game currencies or skins

In any game, having a skin on your favourite character aside from the default one can be a sign of high-level skills or wealthiness. It will also show off the character you aspire to be. The skin you prefer and purchase defines you. Several MOBA games like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and League of Legends: Wild Rift offer several skins for every character in their respective games.

Most of these skins require premium currency. For instance, diamonds or Poro Coins. Topping up with GCash certainly would be beneficial as the app offers a very convenient way to top up. Or be more flexible by purchasing your in-game currency through Codashop which also provides extra bonuses on the bundle of premium currency you choose.

Upgrade your Gaming Accessories

Being a dedicated gamer means you need to have the proper gaming rig or battlestation. The more powerful your PC or phone is, the more games you can play and the easier you can play highly demanding games such as Microsoft Flight Simulator for PCs and Genshin Impact for phones. Gaming phones, as their name suggests, are specifically designed for the hardcore mobile gamer and they offer cooling systems so you can’t just use it to cook fried chicken while you game. One major example is the Asus ROG Phone 6 with 18GB RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Wanna look pretty? That phone also offers RGB lighting optionally.

For PCs, you can start small if you don’t have a budget. For instance, you can look on a computer retailer and see the best offers they have for monitors, graphics cards, processors, keyboards, mice, and other peripherals you might need. You can also check the game’s requirements, especially if that game is the one that you prefer. If it’s demanding, at least now you have an idea how it will run if you buy a set of peripherals for your now battle-ready gaming rig!

Some popular gaming stores like Datablitz accept GCash which makes payment much more convenient. Simply scan the QR code located at the counter. Type in the total payment and simply pay up through the app if you have balance, or through GCredit if you don’t have any.

Soup up your Space!

The world of gaming isn’t just confined within the four corners of your screen, it’s also within you, surrounded by you. Cleaning up your room and decorating them with merchandise, paintings, collectibles, stickers, and other related goods can bring a high appeal to your fans and watchers. From there, they can tell that you have a level of wealth and maybe, even skills for that particular game. It truly makes you a hardcore gamer from your brain down to the heart.

There are several options to look for specific gaming decor such as in department stores, gaming stores, and general merchandise stores. You can also look for one online by going through the pits of Lazada and Shopee. They might offer you high-quality decor at an affordable price. What’s more, they also offer GCash as a mode of payment!

Support your favourite E-sports Team!

A growing E-sports player must behave and act like a noble E-sports player. What’s a better way of doing that than watching them play against another team, just like every other physical sport. You can financially support them by buying their merchandise such as jerseys and licensed figurines. As the E-sports scene grows, talking about them to a colleague can be a great conversation starter and maybe soon, you can become like them and earn millions!

If you support Blacklist International, their merchandise is readily available for purchase through Lazada.

Keep your library up-to-date

Steam is a constantly changing environment. They also constantly change the deals on many gaming titles listed in the platform. So keep yourself up-to-date by having Steam notify you via e-mail for incoming future discounts. Sometimes, a paid game can temporarily be purchased FOR FREE. So pay attention to them. Also, support the developer by purchasing the DLC of the game (if they have one). This adds additional content and other bonuses to your base game, including storyline, characters, skins, and even arcs.

Steam is also a platform where you can easily buy games. After all, what’s the point of streaming if you don’t have a game to stream to begin with? Lucky for you, Steam does not necessarily require you to have a credit or debit card, just GCash is more than enough. You can also buy Steam credits this way.


So now that you have an idea on how to further optimize your gaming experience as well as streaming, go out there and play your favourite game! Remember it’s always fun when you can easily purchase your favourite in-game skin, DLC, or even another game. It’s very convenient to do it when you #PaywithGCash.
