MTN Uganda launched a new gaming platform named MTN Game+, offering great fun and excitement to customers accessible on Android and Feature phones.
MTN Game+ is a result of a partnership between MTN and Huawei.Customers can access the MTN Game+ either through a portal or via a mobile app that they can download from games.mtn.co.ug.
“Mobile Content is the cornerstone of the efforts by MTN to digitize the customers’ lifestyle. We are delighted to launch a platform that will not only enhance the experience of our smartphone customers, but also offer the same content to customers with the entry-level phones as well,” said MTN’s Chief Marketing Officer Mapula Bodibe.
“MTN Game+ is specifically designed to offer gaming options across various categories including sports, action and strategy. It is our hope that customers will find the games exciting as we continue to enable them to do more with their mobile phones,” she explained.
She also revealed that MTN will host a gaming tournament for customers on 17th December at MTN offices on Jinja Road (former BAT).
“Next week on Saturday, we are going to host a gaming tournament, and we are looking forward to offering more excitement to our customers, with a lot of prizes to be won,” concluded.
Games on the MTN Game+ platforms are available to customers through daily, weekly or monthly subscription packages. When a customer subscribes to the service, they can download as many games as they want.
MTN does not charge customers for the data used while browsing the portal for the customer as they try to make a choice of game to download. Similarly, downloading games is free during the subscription period. This means there are no data charges for downloading games while the customer is subscribed to MTN Game+.
