Amazon’s “GameOn Masters India” brings Esports to the mobile masses.

GameOn is an API developed by Amazon that allows mobile app developers to easily integrate gaming competitions into their apps. The tools allow tournaments, leagues, monetization tools and even cross platform play.

It’s an impressive middle ware and one particularly good for India’s gaming industry. Currently online gaming in India stands at around 120 million users and analysts expect it to be a billion dollar industry by 2021. Seeing this trend Amazon has created the GameOn Masters as a way to tap the market early and allow developers who use their API to be on the forefront on that growth.

Amazon’s first event is focused on more casual games. This will allow them to ease new players into competing online and begin groundwork for larger and more complex games and events in later seasons.
