Genshin Impact is giving away free Primogems to players for winning Best Mobile Game at The Game Awards.

Just yesterday on December 9, miHoYo took home the Best Mobile Game award for Genshin Impact at The Game Awards, beating out the likes of League of Legends: Wild Rift and Fantasian. In celebration of the win, miHoYo announced it'll be giving away a grand total of 1,600 Primogems to players as a reward.

The Primogems will be doled out in amounts over the course of four days, starting tomorrow on December 11 and wrapping up on December 14. On each of these days, all players have to do is log in to Genshin Impact on any platform, and they'll immediately be rewarded with 400 Primogems every day, as long as they've achieved Adventurer Rank 7.

It's a nice little move from miHoYo to the Genshin Impact community at large. If you can successfully hoard all 1,600 Primogems without spending them all before the end of Version 2.3, you'll actually have enough for 10 pulls from a single Banner event. That'd normally take a hell of a lot of grinding in Genshin Impact to earn, or cost you a pretty penny.
