Telkom Do Gaming’s prize pool for the DGL Championships has more than doubled to over R1.30 million, making it the largest prize pool in South African gaming history.

This year’s sponsors include Megarom, Electronic Arts, CoolerMaster, SteelSeries, Razer, Monster, Logitech, Alienware and Telkom. Prizes include 24 Alienware Aurora Gaming PCs, gaming hardware, peripherals and cash to the value of over R200 000.

The largest prize allocation goes to Battlefield 3 with R370 000. Battlefield 3 has bigger teams with eight players in a team, hence the larger prize pool. The five-per-side games of League of Legends, Dota 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 all have prize pools of R250 000 in cash and hardware.

Ricus Groenewald, Telkom Gaming Specialist, says the league once again grew by 66 percent to over 4000 gamers in 2013.

“We’ve really seen the competitive gaming scene come on in leaps and bounds over the last several years. As broadband penetration increases, so we’re seeing more and more gamers come online to compete. This has fueled the DGL with South Africa’s best gamers playing for ultimate bragging rights at the Championships, South Africa’s largest competitive LAN.

“With the DGL Championships on par with some of the larger competitive gaming competitions internationally, gaming sponsors are coming to the fore locally and are really getting behind the gaming scene, which is fantastic to see. We’d like to thank all the sponsors for their support. It’s going to be an incredibly competitive Telkom DGL Championships. Good luck to all the teams,” he says.

Update: Do Gaming has amended the above article to reflect an overall prize allocation of over R1.30 million, from the original amount published of over R1.35 million. While the overall prize money was incorrectly published, the individual per-title amounts are correct and therefore there is no reduction in the actual size of the prize pool. Do Gaming apologises for the editorial error.
