Game of the Month: August 2021

SPLASH! It's time to DIVE IN to Retro Handheld's Games of the Month for August: Aquatic Adventures Edition, as voted by your GotM Champions! Speaking of champs, let's talk CASH MONEY RAFFLE RULES!

Completing any of this month's winners not only nets you the @GotM Champion role and access to the #champions_lounge, enabling you to vote on next month's theme, but also enters you in a raffle with cash prizes! First prize will win a $30 gaming gift card of their choice (Google Play Store, Nintendo eshop, PSN, Xbox Live, Steam) and three runner ups will receive a $10 Google Play Store gift card! Raffle winners will be pulled at the end of the month. Additionally, each game you have completed this year also enters you in a yearly super secret, super awesome prize that will be pulled near the holiday season! We can't say too much more about that right now, but we can tell you it's gonna be pretty awesome. Each game you complete gives you one entry, so you can get 6 chances to win maximum each month (3 for the month and 3 for the year)!
