    [There's no way to use it neither on Indie Gala nor Gamersgate which has been said on the giveaway page.]

    Tried to buy a indiebundle for $1 as it's equal to 100 zGold but it didn't work, then tried to buy a game for $0.74-0.99 and after that i tried to use it on Gamersgate to buy the game named The Lady didn't work either.

    If this 100 zGold is a booster to make players buy more zGold then it's a cheap way. I don't like it if i can't spend 100 i've got.

    Now it works. You can use 100 zGold on Indiegala and probably on Gamersgate(don't know because used it on Indiegala) and buy a game/dlc/bundle up to $1.00

    I bought one of the games on Gamersgate using my 100zG. Is The Lady one of the games on their zGold promo page? It has to be one of those games.

    I haven't checked out IndieGala since day 1 of zVault, but it's probably a similar situation: they have a list of things that you can use that promotional 100zG on.

    I also was able to get to the payment option to use the zGold for gems or to unlock all of the gods in Smite. I didn't go that route because I don't really play Smite and wasn't about to shell out the cash for the zGold top up it would have required.

    This is a cool idea and all but i with there was a bigger option of vendors. For example i would TOTALLY use this if i could buy shit in World of tanks. I spend enough money there getting anything would come faster.

    If my math is right you need to spend $800 to get a Razer Nabu (on sale all the time IN CANADA for $40 and under) Like its cool we get free stuff dont get me wrong but if im not going to buy from these sights as a SUPER dedicated razer fanboy here im going to miss out if they do special promotions because this currency is for sights or games i dont use or play.

    TDRL: Great idea but should have had WAY more sights and game on board before launch.

    I've seen a few people make reference to being able to find a way to use the zGold for SMITE.... WHERE?!

    I have tried twice going through the checkout process and haven't seen "Pay with Razer" option.

    When GamersGate ZGold promo will be available again?

    There're only 2
    There're only 2 games on Gamersgate that you can buy for 100 zGold because they're -$1.00

    Maybe i should try it after 1st day like today. Hope it'll work today.

    Hmmmm. There was a page full of games — about 24 of them — that were all > $1, but they were selling for 100zG. I can't find it now. Maybe because I already used my promotional zG on a game from there.

    When you get to the payment options, in the HiRez Store, below the 8 options they have there, there should be something that says "more methods". Something like that. Anyway, click on that, and there should more methods that show up. Razer zGold is toward the bottom.

    I'll put some screenshots up.

    Whoops, it's not there. @Razer|Fowlkin, can you please advise in this case?

    I have one little annoyance with this and that is that for the daily reward from Razer Arena, you have wait 24 hours from the time you last collected it. Yesterday, I couldn't collect it until after 5 pm, when previously, it was after 11 am, so now I have to wait until then to collect it again. On Tuesday, I won't be able to collect it until 11 pm... So I really hope that it doesn't automatically reset at midnight and I lose my streak.
    I think it would be better if it was the same as Razer Cortex, where it just resets at the midnight and you can collect it any time after that.

    @PTSinger Wish I could help. My focus is on Arena and I'm just keeping an eye out for any Arena issues. Maybe someone else has more insight to zVault.

    Just reporting a bug here. If you login consecutively for 6 days straight on Arena, it resets the counter on the 6th day to 50 zSilver rather than giving you 100 zSilver on your 6th day like it shows 100 zSilver as your next reward but when you unbox your reward it shows up as only 50 zSilver. This has happened only on arena so I guess its just an issue there. Cortex seems fine though.

    Same thing happened to me, but I thought I was dreaming or had just miscalculated what my zS should have been. Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 10.00.08.png

    @PTSinger @0V3R_K1LL I'll forward this along and make sure that it is looked at.

    *edit* Confirming that this is not normal functionality and will hopefully be addressed by tomorrow.

    I can't find where I need to go in Razer Cortex to claim my daily bonus. It's 10:30pm and I'm on my Windows 7 laptop. Is Cortex for some reason super, super different than on Windows 8? I get no notification for me to claim my bonus. I'm about to go to bed and now I have to turn on my desktop, log in to Cortex and turn it off again...
    Really wish there was easier way right now :/

    Scratch that, it's not working on my desktop either, so I just wasted my time and power turning on my desktop -.-
    I really won't be happy if I lose my daily streak on Cortex...

    EDIT: Was JUST able to collect it because I guess I wasn't in Cortex apparently, just Razer Central... That's confusing because I logged into Cortex...

    Asap the event for the 50% discount code starts, I will buy a keyboard worth 100€. After the purchase, will I receive some zGOLD points?

    No, That's separate entirely. You get zGold by buying it with real money or through promotions.

    Thats not how it works. You get zGold by topping up your zWallet with funds. Those funds can only be used to redeem games through partners and 3rd party game vendors right now like indiegala and gamersgate.

    In short, you only get zGold by adding money in zWallet to get games from indiegala or gamersgate till now.
