Most of you probably know someone who’s a gamer – heck, you might even be one yourself. If you’re one who can never turn a blind eye to a good virtual challenge, now’s the time to put your gaming chops to good use. Get in on DBS PayLah!’s #UltimateHawker game to dip your feet into a cash reward pool of up to $50,000, and support local hawkers while you’re at it.
Featuring cute monsters as virtual customers, this mobile game will allow you to “cook” hawker dishes while unveiling real-life hawker gems across Singapore. Here’s why you should make it your new on-the-go game from now till 5th January 2022:
PayLah! #UltimateHawker is kind of like Pokémon GO meets Cooking Mama. Players will have to uncover virtual hawker stalls located at IRL places around Singapore.
These places comprise real-life merchants that accept PayLah!, including hawker centres and other random spots peppered around Singapore. You’ll be able to easily identify the virtual hawker stalls via your in-game map.

Hint: As the game’s name suggests, you may want to start your search at your nearest real-life hawker centre.
There are two types of virtual stalls to uncover: regular red stalls and rare gold stalls.
With gold stalls, you’ll get a higher chance to find rare dishes requested by the monsters. In turn, they’ll show their appreciation with larger IRL cash tips for all your hard work! Note that these stalls only appear at specific hours, from 11.30AM – 2PM, and 6.30PM – 9PM, so keep your eyes peeled when you’re out during lunch and dinnertime.
On top of this, you can collect in-game power ups to stay ahead of the game. All you have to do is make PayLah! transactions at any hawker and verify your transaction.

All you have to do is correctly prepare any of the 12 hungry monsters’ correctly and collect “tips” from them in the form of actual cash rewards. These rewards will also be credited directly into your DBS PayLah! account so you can easily spend it.
P.S. The larger and more complicated the order, the larger amount of tips (cash rewards) you’ll receive.
