Tunisia mobile gamers win real-life cow, seriously.
Couple in Tunisia are rewarded real-life cow called Pamela after winning mobile game Bagra
Gamers can be rewarded anything from fake money to artificial diamonds to gaming credits when playing video games, but in Tunisia, gamers were rewarded livestock.
A couple topped the results chart after playing locally-developed mobile game named ‘Bagra' which means cow, and were rewarded a real-life cow named Pamela.
Pamela spent two weeks at the developers' headquarters but is now on her way to her new home. This, however, is not a one off prize, as the developers have already purchased their second cow, named Brigitte. The next Bagra champions can choose to keep Brigitte, donate her to charity, or eat steaks.
The game itself involves herding cows and protecting them from competing players, with the aim to increase the herd size. The game features in-app purchases that can boost the players' herding abilities and the fee also boosts the national economy.
Bagra has been created by Tunisia's video gaming company, Digital Mania, who plan to embed virtual reality experiences.
