Google Pay reunites Singapore’s much sought-after Huat pals 

to offer more rewards this Lunar New Year

Gather family and friends to find this year’s new and returning characters, and earn a variety of rewards including an angpow of up to $88.88

This Lunar New Year, Google Pay is ushering in the Year of the Tiger with the return of its popular social game, Huat pals. Back for its second run from today till 15 February 2022, Huat pals is introducing five new characters, along with last year’s crowd favourite, BB Loh, to bring users another round of fun and excitement with more rewards and prizes.


Su Mei Teh, Head of APAC Product Operations, Google Pay said, “The great response to the first edition of Huat pals last year demonstrated that everyone can enjoy a safe and helpful payment experience, while having fun and fostering social connections, even remotely . We’d like to reignite the same excitement around delightful payment experiences this year by keeping with  the same festive spirit of prosperity and togetherness with a new cast of Huat pals  who, with the help of our network of merchant partners, are giving out even more goodies this time round. We are hoping to surpass the record of one million gift baskets and 700,000 vouchers given to our users last year.”

Similar to last year’s game mechanics, users need to help main character Tiggy (far left) find and reunite with five unique characters (or Huat pals).
