HONG KONG, 19 September 2017 – Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, and 3 Hong Kong, a leading mobile communications service provider, today announced that Razer zGold virtual credits can now be purchased in Hong Kong via 3 Hong Kong’s “Bill-to-3” carrier billing service.

Razer zGold service is the latest development in the partnership between Razer and the 3 Group. Razer launched its sixth RazerStore in Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay in alliance with 3 Hong Kong in June.

Razer zGold is available for purchase at over 1 million touchpoints globally, and it can be used to pay for 2,500-plus game titles from game store partners including GamersGate and Indiegala. In-game items, streaming subscriptions and other digital content from SMITE, War Thunder, Atlas Reactor and other providers can also be purchased. Razer zGold provides exclusive offers for users and allows them to earn zSilver loyalty credits for an array of game-related purchases.

The “Bill-to-3” service provides 3 Hong Kong users with a seamless experience when they purchase Razer zGold by charging payments directly to their 3 Hong Kong accounts. Each transaction is distinctly displayed on customer mobile phone bills.  The online purchasing experience is safe and convenient, and no additional credit card information is required.

From today (19 September) to 18 October, 3 Hong Kong users will enjoy launch promotions such as additional 5 percent Bonus zGold upon top-up and one-time loyalty credits of 5,000 Razer zSilver. Gamers in Hong Kong can now use Razer zSilver to redeem Razer discount vouchers and Razer products. The Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 gaming keyboard, the Razer DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse and other popular items are included in the offering.

Gamers can visit the RazerStore at Causeway Bay to learn about Razer zGold and experience the latest award-winning Razer laptops and peripherals.

“We are very excited about this partnership and what it brings to the gaming community in Hong Kong,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer Co-founder and CEO. “We have received countless requests to bring the zGold service to Hong Kong and we are very proud to say that our partnership with 3 Hong Kong allows us to do it in a way that brings even more value to the gamers.”

Cliff Woo, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of HTHKH, said: “We are thrilled to be the first operator to partner with Razer and launch the ‘Bill-to-3’ service. Combining this fast and convenient carrier billing service with gaming enables gamers to purchase zGold virtual credits with just a few clicks, enjoying total peace of mind and the ultimate gaming experience.”
