The tournament will begin on the 24th April 2023 and last 7 days, with lots of opportunities to win prizes for top scores. The Solitaire game will also dynamically adapt to reflect ownership of a PolkaPet NFT, in a rare example of true mobile NFT integration for web3 gaming.
PolkaPet holders will also continue to earn double Bitcoin rewards across VIKER’s portfolio of casual mobile games – with 6 new compatible game titles: Bitcoin Chess, Sudoku, Balls King, Amazeballs, Wheel of Crypto, and Missing Letters.
For the first time, holders are able to directly integrate with the platform instead of requiring a VPPP (VIKER PolkaPet Pass).
Speaking about the partnership, PolkaPet World team lead Harry Liu said: “This is a big day for our PolkaPet community, who now have the opportunity to see the PolkaPet IP extend beyond the confines of web3 into more conventional mobile gaming.”
Dan Beasley co-founder of VIKER added, “Our goal is to create a unique experience where we can seamlessly collaborate with other projects and bring new users into the web3 ecosystem and we’re delighted to be debuting this with PolkaPets”.
Animoca CEO Robby Yung said of the partnership: “This partnership demonstrates not just the collaborative spirit of our Animoca Brands portfolio businesses but the evolution of web3 gaming, where we see web3 IP being implemented in these new and community-focused ways.”
All holders of an original PolkaPet, or special edition ‘Fenix’ pet, are eligible to begin playing on the VIKER Games platform from 24th April 2023, with the tournament accessible via the Viker Solitaire game is available on the App Store and Google Play.
