Mobile game developer Mattel163, in partnership with motor oil brand Mobil 1, has officially announced the UNO Championship Series.

It is a series of events and promotions celebrating the classic card game’s 50th anniversary since its creation back in 1971.

It will include a global UNO Mobile Tournament, and the UNO Championship Series Invitational Tournament.

How to register for the global UNO Mobile Tournament

The mobile tournament will use the UNO! app available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Anyone aged 18 years old and up can participate in this UNO esports tournament to win in-app badges, avatars, and even trophies and medals.

Simply click on the mobile tournament option inside the app to enter and play in the UNO esports tournament.

On the other hand, the game’s championship series will be an invite-only event set to take place on November 11 later this year in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The UNO Championship Series Invitational Tournament will have a grand prize of US$50,000.

With these events, the developers are hoping to crown the first ever UNO world champion. Could this mark the start of UNO esports?
