Podcast: What is Amazon Prime Gaming?

Amazon Prime has announced a new initiative for its Prime members in India, it’s called Amazon Gaming with Prime. As part of this new gaming content plan, Amazon Prime subscribers will receive free, complimentary access to in-game content on a variety of popular smartphone games. Amazon also says its offerings are refreshed frequently.

The purpose of Amazon Gaming with Prime is to allow Prime subscribers to gain access to in-game content without having to pay anything. For example, if you are playing a game, let’s say Mafia City — well, I haven’t played Mafia City in particular — but nearly all mobile games out there support in-app purchases, where you need to pay the actual money to unlock a specific part of the game, PUBG allows users to pay for a lot of stuff, but unfortunately it’s not supported yet.

The content would be available for free to all Amazon Prime members. So, as long as you have a valid Prime membership, you can easily unlock new items — but only on supported games.

For now, Amazon Gaming with Prime supports a limited number of games. For example, it supports Mobile Legends, World Cricket Championship, Black Desert Mobile, Words with Friends 2, Mafia City, and The Seven Deadly Sins.

Claiming in-game content on these games is a fairly simple and straightforward process. All you need to do is download and start supported games. Once you start the game, discover the option to log in with Amazon. But before that, make sure you have an active Amazon Prime membership.

In case you don’t have active Amazon Prime membership, make sure to subscribe to Prime before you can avail free in-game content on your favorite, supported mobile games.

In addition to Gaming with Prime, Amazon offers certain logistical benefits to Prime members such as unlimited, free one-day, and two-day delivery on products you want to purchase on Amazon. Also here is an Amazon Prime Video that offers a wide range of popular movies and TV shows, including my all-time favorite, the American version of The Office.

Then comes Amazon Prime Music. Well, Amazon Prime Music is free to stream for all users any way but you are a prime member, you enjoy an ad-free music streaming experience.
