It’s been a little while since we held a competition here at Esports News UK and we’ve got an Insomnia62 special for you here.
We’re teaming up with IT infrastructure monitoring solution PRTG Network Monitor from Paessler AG to give away goody bags to five lucky winners.
Each goody bag includes the following:
- £10 Steam voucher
- The Game Against Downtime
- Bottle opener
The T-shirts feature a cool retro video game theme, as you can see above (note, there’s one T-shirt per goody bag, the above images are examples of the type of shirt each winner will receive).
So we all know what a Steam voucher, bottle opener and T-shirt is, but what the heck is The Game Against Downtime?
Well, it’s a card game for IT Admins in the fight against downtime (pictured top). If you’re in IT and have a warped sense of humour, you might like it.
