Are you a gaming nerd, or a casual player without a care in the world for the cleanliness of your gaming setup? If this sounds like you then you might be in luck!

We are running a competition to find the UK’s Messiest Gamer, and the winner will get a £500 voucher to upgrade their current equipment.

We surveyed UK gamers recently and found that over half of gamers (55%) clean their gaming setups once a month or less. Now we’re on a mission to find the UK’s grimiest setups.

A shocking one in ten (11%) gamers in the UK admitted to having never cleaned their equipment since they bought it. Sheffield wins the title of grimiest gaming city, with an astounding 21% of gamers from the Yorkshire city saying they’ve never cleaned their gaming equipment – that’s twice the national average.

To enter the competition, you simply need to send in a photo of your gaming lair for a chance to win the £500 prize, courtesy of PlayOJO.

The competition winner will receive a £500 Amazon voucher. If you spend it on your gaming setup, make sure you keep it clean!

If you have a grubby gaming lair worthy of being crowned UK’s Messiest Gamer, we’d love to hear from you. To enter, simply complete the form and send us photo evidence of the messy setup!


The deadline for entering the competition is 15th December 2023 and a winner will be contacted within a week of the competition closing.
