MTN Uganda on Thursday introduced free gaming on MTN Game+ every Thursday for its MTN Pulse customers. This is part of the broader proposition for MTN Pulse customers that are enthusiastic about gaming. This comes after month when the telecom firm launched Pulse, a community targeting the youth, giving them the power to be themselves, unleash their full potential and live life with No Fear

“As part of MTN Pulse, customers are now free to expand their skill set and explore further their gaming potential. Our MTN Pulse customers will now be able to subscribe and play free games every Thursday,” Hellen Kirungi; MTN Uganda Youth Segment Manager said in a press statement.

MTN Game+ is accessible on all android enabled smartphones allowing customers to subscribe, download and play games of their choice. Usually, customers have to part with a fee to play games for daily or weekly or monthly subscriptions.

“We believe that this is an exciting opportunity for MTN Pulsers to play the games they have always wanted to play. We are creating the FOMO for free gaming every Thursday,” Kirungi said.

The free gaming also provides an opportunity for game developers to build more games that can be played by Ugandans. MTN Game+ will remain available for subscription throughout but free for MTN Pulse customers every Thursday. To join MTN Pulse and enjoying free gaming on Thursdays, hit *157# or
