Buying games can be expensive, especially if they’ve just been released. When you throw in DLCs and microtransactions in the mix, gaming, whether it’s on PC or consoles can actually be quite expensive. For this reason, third-party marketplaces that give away games for far cheaper than the likes of Steam or the Epic Game Store are popular.

In this article, we’re talking about Instant Gaming, an online marketplace that sells game codes for cheap and whether or not it’s legit.

What is Instant Gaming?

Instant Gaming is an online game marketplace that sells games for PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch often with significant discounts on their retail prices as compared to official marketplaces. It’s a relatively trustworthy site with a 4.7 Trustpilot rating and nearly 600,000 reviews. 

You can find just about any game, with its different availability options on the site. The way it works is by delivering a game code after the purchase that you can then enter on the publisher’s site or on the platform that you use (Steam, Origin or Epic Games) and download your game. The codes are purchased from authorised resellers including EA Origin, Steam,, NCSoft and Ubisoft and are totally legal. 

The site is legit and you should get your key shortly after the purchase in the “My Orders” section of your account. Instant Gaming also offers refunds but does require a 10-day window to check if the game code has been used or not. 

Once the game code has been redeemed, your game will be added to the respective platform’s library and you can download it as and when you like. There’s no limitation on the number of downloads or when you redeem your game code, giving users more flexibility.
