To participate in the competition, consumers need to have a Nintendo Account with a country/region setting of any country the event is available in.

Winners & prizes

Out of all participants that finish at least one match of Tetris® 99 in first position (“Tetris Maximus”) during the event, 999 can win a prize of 999 My Nintendo Gold Points each, delivered to their Nintendo Account. The number of Tetris Maximus wins achieved has no influence on the chance of winning a prize. If more than 999 participants achieve a Tetris Maximus win, winners will be determined by random draw. If less than 999 participants achieve a Tetris Maximus win within the period, the number of winners will be reduced accordingly.


Nintendo will deliver prizes within one week from the end date of the event period. Winners will be informed via email and My Nintendo notification. The email will be sent to the email address registered for their Nintendo Account. In case a winner uses a child account, the email will be sent to their family group admin instead. My Nintendo notifications can be checked by selecting the user icon and nick name in the top right corner on my.nintendo.com or the official website of Nintendo when signed in with a Nintendo Account.
