PlayMaya: PayMaya’s all-in-one gaming experience launched

PayMaya continues to inspire Filipinos’ digital lives with the debut of PlayMaya, a ground-breaking in-app service that will elevate everyone’s gaming experience through cashless comfort and thrilling rewards.

PlayMaya introduces millions of casual players around the country to a brand new realm of gaming. Customers will use the PayMaya app to gain unique access to exciting discounts and cashback perks for in-game transactions, as well as over 290 interactive gaming items, free mini-games to enjoy, and selected content from their favorite gaming personalities.

Users can quickly access these exciting new features and rewards by simply pressing the new ‘Play’ button on the PayMaya app home screen. These exciting new features and rewards provide something for all kinds of gamers, whether they are into casual gaming, smartphone or console games, or even eSports games.


PayMaya has launched the PlayMaya Tournament to coincide with the launch of PlayMaya, which will see smartphone gamers from all over the world compete in some of the most successful mobile games today, including Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Call of Duty Mobile, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile.

“PayMaya has always enabled the digital lifestyle of Filipinos through our fintech innovations. Earlier this year, we elevated the shopping experience of our customers with the PayMaya Mall. Now, millions of PayMaya users can gain instant access to an awesome, all-in-one gaming experience–filled with exclusive rewards, engaging games, and exciting content–just by pressing ‘Play’ on their PayMaya app,” said Heidi Garayblas, Head of Growth Marketing Partnerships for PayMaya Philippines. 

Cong TV, a prominent streamer and content producer, was launched as the official PlayMaya ambassador and was one of the first PayMaya users to experience more amazing gaming with PlayMaya. Cong TV has been using PayMaya for years to indulge cashless comfort in its gaming transactions, in addition to the other features it provides, such as bill payment and online shopping. Cong TV will now enjoy leveled-up perks and prizes for his gaming needs, no matter what kind of game he plays, thanks to the recently introduced PlayMaya app.
