If you’re watching The Game Awards tonight, you’ll want to sign up for a pair of sweepstakes for your chance to win a free Steam Deck OLED and/or a free Lenovo Legion Go. The Game Awards did a similar promotion last year, giving away 100 Steam Decks. This year, however, the show has upped the ante, offering 100 Steam Deck OLED units and 100 Lenovo Legion Go gaming handhelds to lucky viewers.

You can register for your chance to win a 1 TB model of the Steam Deck OLED and/or the 512 GB model of the Lenovo Legion Go until 8:00 p.m. PT / 11:00 p.m. ET, roughly three hours after The Game Awards kick off. To enter, you only need to submit your full name, e-mail, and Zip Code for a chance to win. Once entries for the sweepstakes are closed, winners will be notified via e-mail within 24 hours, after which they’ll have 48 hours to confirm their information and claim their prize.

While entries are technically limited to one per e-mail, contestants can unlock up to three additional entries to win the Steam Deck OLED by connecting your Steam account, and by following @thegameawards, and @summergamefest on Twitter,

Up to seven more entries to win the Lenovo Legion can be unlocked by subscribing to The Game Awards newsletter and following @thegameawards on Youtube, TikTok, or Twitter in addition to visiting the Lenovo Legion Go product page, Youtube channel, or subscribing to @lenovolegion on TikTok.

The OLED model of the Steam Deck improves the already excellent Valve handheld with a vivid OLED display, while being lighter and more power-efficient than its predecessor.

The Lenovo Legion Go is the latest contender in the handheld PC arena, and is equipped with a larger display and more powerful hardware than its counterparts from either Asus or Valve. Its most distinct feature, however, is its pair of removable controllers, similar to those on the Nintendo Switch.

Valve’s handheld is an excellent platform for playing Elden Ring just about anywhere. FromSoftware’s open-world RPG launched just a couple of days following the Steam Deck and was among the first wave of Steam Deck-verified titles. It’s still one of the best ways to play.
