Tennis fans can get their adrenalin pumping at a new technology and tennis inspired gaming experience—The Breakthrough Room—that launches at the Australian Open on 20 January.

The immersive pop-up by Mastercard, the Official Payment Partner of the Australian Open, will challenge people to navigate their way through a futuristic underground complex to secure exclusive tickets to the AO21 men’s finals.

With locked doors at every turn, teams will have a maximum of six minutes to complete the game that includes:
Briefing Room – before teams start the game, they must verify their identity, select their team name and collect a device that’s used to make payments and provide clues.
Challenge One – teams must arrange audio pieces in the correct order to form the Mastercard Sonic melody. The sound will chime when teams complete a challenge correctly.
Challenge Two – teams must construct a token by tapping the correct puzzle pieces from the touch-sensitive walls. The token protects the team’s method of payment.
Challenge Three – teams must use clues to find and buy courtside tickets, a nod to the prize on offer.

The top times go up on a leader board. The team that completes the challenge in the quickest time will win Reserve Tickets to the AO21 men’s finals, including flights and accommodation in a five-star hotel.

The game takes consumers on a fun and futuristic journey through the world of payments and the technology that goes into making every tap secure and seamless. From voice recognition to biometrics, and even secure payment technology such as Tokenisation, the experience has been designed to bring to life the invisible protection behind every Mastercard payment.

Fans who complete the Breakthrough Room in under six minutes can also tap their Mastercard to receive a Priceless Surprise courtesy of Mastercard vending machines dispensing prizes ranging from gift vouchers to accessories.

Fans can use a Mastercard debit, prepaid or credit card or contactless device to receive one of the Priceless Surprises.
