This year at the Electronics & Gaming Expo (EGE), we’re offering attendees cash prizes and more across a variety of titles.

As with the 2016 edition of EGE, Friday is the ‘school’s day’. That means cheaper entry for learners in school uniform, as well as number of tournaments geared specifically for school goers too.

Yes, for the Friday only, scholars in their school uniform will be allowed full access to EGE for only R20. The tickets will be available at the door and the proceeds from these tickets will be given to charity.

For all scholars in attendance, there will also be both a FIFA 17 and Injustice 2 tournament complete with cash prize pool. Up for grabs in each tournament will be R1,000 cash.
