Riot Codes FAQ

What exactly is a Riot Code?

A Riot code is single use code that can be redeemed through the League of Legends client or a web browser at for in-game content. Most codes will start with "RA-" followed by 16 letters or numbers.

These codes are different from prepaid gift cards. Prepaid gift cards must be redeemed within the respective game client, and cannot be redeemed on the website.

How and where can I get a code?

Riot codes have a variety of sources. They can be bundled as part of a product, purchased from our partners, or even sent directly from a Rioter through our games or social media!

That being said, you shouldn't message a Rioter asking for codes, as they are only given out under special circumstances.

How can I redeem a code?

There are two ways to redeem a code:

League of Legends Client

  1. Log in to the League of Legends client
  2. Click the Store button
  3. Click the Account button (the profile with a gear behind it) in the top right of the store)
  4. Select the Redeem Codes category
  5. Enter the code in the window exactly as it appears in the message, then click Submit



  1. Go to the Riot Code Redemption page on your browser of choice
  2. Enter the code in the window exactly as it appears in the message, then select Redeem Code

My code doesn't work! What do I do?

Send us a ticket with the following information:

  • The code itself
  • Your Riot ID
  • The email you used to sign up for your Riot Account

Please note the following:

  • We will not be able to help you redeem a code that was already redeemed on a different account. Codes can only be redeemed once and that includes accounts on different servers.
  • We do not support codes purchased or acquired from 3rd parties (i.e. outside of Riot or official partner promotions)
  • We cannot redeem a code that has expired - please make sure to check the code's expiration date!
