Celebrate the start of the new year with an exciting worldwide competition. The Win-A-Thon is back and now available on both PS4 and PS5 from December 1 to January 31. There are many chances to win big prizes including the upcoming DualSense Edge Controller, cash, and even PS5 consoles. Don’t miss your chance to join the fun and compete against fellow fans of your favorite titles. There’s something for everybody — all skill levels are welcome to participate!

Here’s how the Win-A-Thon works: Players have two months to play as many eligible tournaments as they can and rack up wins for a chance at prizes. If you’re playing in a Win-A-Thon labeled tournament, such as your favorite Open Series or Flash Rounds, each competition will count toward overall Win-A-Thon rankings at the end of January. Read more details about eligible titles and how to enter for each console below.

Prizing and format will be different depending on whether you are playing on a PS4 or a PS5 console. Tournament details vary between the two, so read below to learn how the Win-A-Thon works across each console. Each eligible region will have its own leaderboards. Active PS Plus membership required. Must meet minimum age requirements and be a resident of an eligible country. Void where prohibited. See full rules for more information about eligibility.
