Let‘s dive in and explore how Prime Gaming works so you can start expanding your library and boosting your favorite games, 100% free!

A World of Free Games and Loot

First, what exactly is Amazon Prime Gaming?

I‘m glad you asked!

Prime Gaming grants Amazon Prime members access to a rotating selection of free PC games – yours to download and keep forever!

We‘re talking full games spanning across genres and themes. Recent examples include RPGs like Knockout City, platformers like Samurai Jack, and simulation games like Loom.

  • Currency, skins, and weapons for Apex Legends
  • FUT packs and players for FIFA
  • Customization items for Grand Theft Auto Online
  • Champs and skins for League of Legends

This loot can score you premium goodies to show off in-game and step up your play.

According to gaming industry analysts:

"For avid gamers, the free games and in-game content included with Prime Gaming can provide over $500 in annual savings compared to purchasing individually."

So if you want to avoid paying for games and unlock coveted gaming swag, Prime Gaming is a sweet bonus you gain simply by being an Amazon Prime member!
