D4G puts Instant Gaming to the test with the GOG client. Are their PC CD Keys really instant and will the code be fully redeemable with Good Old Games?

Account setup and ordering our first PC CD Key
We create an account (that also gives access to their support ticket system) and add The Witcher 3 to our basket. We also opened a support ticket, asking if The Witcher 3 was only redeemable on GOG (all PC hard copies/codes are). We received a reply within the hour. So far, so good.
Once we’ve added our game to cart, we’re given the option to pay via Instant Gaming Credits, credit/debit card or PayPal.
Instant Gaming’s PayPal ID Check: After contacting IG about this, we learn that due to fraudulent orders, (resulting in PayPal reversing payments at a later date, costing IG the sale as well as products ordered) IG had no choice but to perform ID checks on first time PayPal customers.
Instant Gaming understand that this still may be a concern, so as well as debit/credit cards, they also offer payment via Skrill or Hipay.
We chose to pay via debit card and once our order was processed, our code instantly appeared in the ‘My Orders’ section of our account menu.
The ease of placing our order and speed in which we received our PC CD key, really impressed us. We immediately headed to GOG and used our code. Within seconds, we were downloading all file parts and extra bonus content!
The ability to download game files and bonus content separately from GOG, was great. Their server speeds were incredibly fast and very consistent.
Head to Instant Gaming now, for great discounts on the latest PC game keys.
