What is ggCircuit?
ggCircuit allows gamers at LAN Centers to compete globally with other LAN Centers and redeem prizes based on the coins they earn. Just by playing at a LAN Center you earn coins by the hour and if you link certain game accounts with your ggCircuit account, you can earn even more coins. These coins allow you and/or your center climb the ggCircuit competition leaderboards and also allows you to reap the benefits by earning free stuff the more you play.

Prizes and Stats
What prizes are available?
Both your LAN Center and ggCircuit provide prizes to players who participate in ggCircuit. You can redeem coins for snacks, drinks & game time at your LAN center. Depending on your membership level, ggCircuit also has premium prizes available. Prizes such as Steam cards, Riot points, headsets, mice, video cards and even PCs can be won as a ggCircuit gold member.
How much do prizes cost with coins?
That is really up to the LAN center as they control the economy of prizes at their store. Depending on numerous factors these coin costs are also subject to change. As a quick example some centers say that 250 coins equals roughly a dollar. If a canned soft drink can be redeemed at 250 coins, you would play around 5 hours to redeem that prize. Just think of it, the time you play normally at your LAN center can quickly add up and allow you free stuff every time you walk in the door.
Is there a limit on prizes?
Again, this depends on the center. From ggCircuit's perspective, prizes have no limits on them.

General Center Questions
What is ggCircuit?

You are in complete control of your center economy and can decide the appropriate prize for the coins (e.g. 1000 coins could be 4 hours of free gaming at your center)
Why is ggCircuit good for my business?
Running a LAN center is hard work. It's hard to keep your members interested when new games don't come out that often. It's hard to convince new gamers to pay to play at a LAN center when they could play at home or at a friend's house. It's hard to get your old customers back who you haven't seen in a long time.
ggCircuit will give your gamers a reason to stay logged into your computers. They are always in competition, they are always striving to improve their ranking, and they can finally be recognized as being a great player among their peers – and they can get free stuff!
Your gamers have the incentive to play more at your gaming center and to really feel part of the ggCircuit global community of gamers.
