Arena Match is a blockchain based skills based betting platform that allows you to earn money when playing AAA games such as PUBG. Iit is blockchain based, but it does not mean that you must be familiar with this technology, more specifically Ethereum, as it uses AMGO native token as in-app currency but also USD (deposit via credit card).
UPDATE JUNE 15 2020 : Arena Match discontinued?
Arena Match project is on hold. Its Telegram channel has been renamed and set to read-only, the website taken down. We can reasonably assume that Arena Match project is discontinued.
Arena Match review: how does it work?
- Skill Challenges: this is a 1P mode. It allows players to make a bet against Arena Match based on their ability to win challenges (like getting first place in their next game of solo Fortnite). Payouts are related to the player’s historic performance and the challenge’s difficulty
- Highscore Tournaments: players can compete in regularly scheduled leaderboard tournaments. If you reach a position that entitles to a prize, you win!
- Head-to-Head: Individuals or teams pay a predetermined entry fee to queue up and face off against challengers to compete for the match’s prize pool. Arena Match retains 10% of the collected fees for hosting the match.
- Battle Royale: Players will be able to pay an entry fee to enter pre-scheduled Battle Royale matches, where they will compete for that match’s top positions. The players who score the best ranks will be paid out from that match’s prize pool, minus a 10% hosting fee kept by Arena Match.
