• Introduction to Giveaways

    Giveaways are the main feature of the website. Visit the site at anytime and you will always see at least 2 of them running. But what are Giveaways and what types of Giveaways are there? This FAQ will answer all that and more including how to redeem a particular code.

    Firstly lets me explain the basic and most common Giveaway. Basically the Giveaway will start but parts of the redeem code would be missing (For example: Q****-A**6Z-L*7PW) over time new parts will randomly be revealed. Once the full code is revealed you simply must be the first person to redeem it. Very simple. We also use sites such as SteamGifts so users can enter a giveaway and get an equal chance of winning regardless of when they visit the site.

    As of February 2015 giveaways on SteamGifts will be hosted weekly. Entries will usually close at 6PM GMT on Wednesday and a new giveaway will start shortly after.
