One of the most active web3 games currently available, Benji Bananas, heads into season 5 of their web3-enabled, mobile game, allowing players to compete for spots on the leaderboard and earn PRIMATE tokens in the process!

Interestingly, Benji Bananas did not begin as a web3 game. In fact, they launched in 2013 as a standard mobile game. But recently, they have expanded their offering to also include web3, play and earn opportunities. Now, they head into season 5 of their ‘swing and earn’ event with another round of PRIMATE tokens up for grabs!

Though the game is free to play, participating in the play to earn leaderboards requires owning a Membership Pass, currently going for ~$55 on Open Sea. Players also need to link their Google or Apple ID account, and pass identification verification with Blockpass in order to earn rewards.

Benji Bananas recently introduced free, play and earn tournaments as well. You may even have a chance to win a Membership Pass! Check their tournament page to see what’s open.

Season 5 Info

This is the fifth play and earn event from Benji Bananas. In order to be eligible for the leaderboard, players must play the World Tour and complete at least 10 games. Player’s scores are weighted by various factors. The weighted categories are, furthest distance in a single race (10%), total distance during the event (20% of the score), the furthest world reached in a single game (20%), and the average number of bananas collected per game (50%).

The fifth season began on December 22nd, and runs through January 2nd, 2023, at 7pm EST. Players who hold multiple Membership Passes and/or a stack of $PRIMATE token receive multipliers on the amount of rewards they receive from this event. Players with one pass at at least 5,000 tokens receive a 1.1 multiplier. Three Passes plus 10,000 tokens rewards a 1.2 multiplier, and holding 5 or more Passes at at least 20k PRIMATE tokens provides a 1.5 bonus to all token rewards from the event.

About Benji Bananas

Benji Bananas is a casual mobile game launched in 2013. It is a side-scrolling, banana collecting adventure in the style of Pitfall. Since its launch, the game has been downloaded over 50 million times and is available on iOS and Android. Benji Bananas has been expanding into the web3 world, offering a Membership Pass NFT that allows holders to compete in play and earn leaderboards.

The goal with the addition of the web3 connection is to introduce thousands of new users to crypto gaming. Which is very interesting to see coming from an already established mobile game! Players can earn PRIMATE in tournaments and other rewards campaigns.
