Do your best to show off how Lucky the dragon can look when fused with the Venom Symbiote and you could win a new MSI Trident 3 mini PC or 27-inch curved gaming monitor. The contest celebrates the release of the movie Venom starring Tom Hardy in the titular role.

Riding on the heels of the upcoming Venom movie, MSI will be running a promotion until the end of this month where select purchases can be eligible for a free Venom mouse pad and water bottle. Qualifying products include the Optix MPG or MAG monitor, an Aegis, Infinite, or Trident 3 desktop PC, and the B450 Tomahawk motherboard. Users must register their new purchases with MSI online before being approved for the Venom gift items.

Aside from the above, the manufacturer will also be running a separate contest where users are encouraged to Photoshop the MSI mascot Lucky succumbing to the Venom Symbiote. The most creative submissions uploaded to Twitter or Instagram can win prizes such as the aforementioned Trident 3 mini PC, 27-inch Optix MPG gaming monitor, or a B450 motherboard.

According to the contest rules, the winning submissions will be chosen based on originality, innovative caption or message, quality of submission, and public vote in that order. We recommend checking out the official contest page below for more details.

Cross promotions between gaming OEMs and blockbuster movies don't happen all too often. Dell ran a promotion with Ant-Man and the Wasp earlier this year with select G Series gaming laptops, but MSI is certainly going the extra mile to encourage more creativity from its fans. Perhaps disappointingly, no MSI laptops are included in any of these contests.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
