Amazon is rumored to be developing its own NFT marketplace, but you don’t have to wait for it—the retail giant is already playing in the NFT space via its Prime Gaming portal, and best of all, the NFTs are totally free for subscribers to claim.
If you pay for an Amazon Prime subscription, then there’s already a selection of free NFTs that you can claim and use in current blockchain games. Whether they’re playable characters or special outfits and skins, these freebies are worth grabbing.
And with an estimated 170 million Prime subscribers, that’s a lot of potential NFTs to snag. Here’s a look at the gaming NFTs that are currently available as of this writing. We'll update this story regularly to point you towards the latest stuff that you can claim.
Amazon Prime members can claim a free NFT and in-game currency for Mojo Melee, an accessible, web-based “auto battler” game in the vein of Auto Chess and Teamfight Tactics. Developer Mystic Moose revealed a six-month partnership with Amazon in early August, and the second monthly pack has just rolled out.
Until September 27, Amazon Prime subscribers can claim the free pack, which includes a Polygon NFT for in-game champion Dawn Striker, along with a special "Chroma" skin for the character. This is the second champion character that Amazon has awarded Prime subscribers so far.
Mojo Melee is playable on PC or Mac, plus there’s an Android app available. Read GG’s Mojo Melee beginner’s guide to get a quick start in this competitive strategy game.
Blankos Block Party
Mythical Games’ create-and-play PC and Mac game Blankos Block Party has already held multiple promotional giveaways with Amazon Prime Gaming in the past, and they’ve reconnected for a pair of additional NFT claims that are still active today.
Right now, Amazon Prime Gaming is offering the Twilight Strix Blanko character for free, along with the Midnight Crest Helmet. Both are NFT collectibles, plus each bundle comes with further in-game benefits—200 in-game Blanko Bucks with the character, so you can buy additional content, plus a 10,000 XP boost with the helmet to level up your character.
What is Amazon Prime Gaming?
Amazon Prime Gaming is one of many offerings available to subscribers of Amazon’s Prime membership service. Broadly, Prime Gaming provides exclusive benefits to Prime users, whether it’s free in-game content or totally free games that users can download and keep.
In addition to NFT games, Amazon has worked with the publishers of massive games like League of Legends, Roblox, Diablo IV, and Madden NFL 23 to give away free in-game content to subscribers. The selection of free content is frequently updated, spanning major franchises and indie gems alike.
