About Skin Boosts
What are Skin Boosts?
For 95 RP, you’ll unlock a random skin for your team, a one-game 200 bonus IP boost for yourself, and a one-game 100 bonus IP boost for the rest of your allies. This boost will only last one game, so make it count! This is only available in ARAM.
Note: Only one person per team can purchase the Skin Boost.
How do I unlock the boost?
Click the "Boost" button above your champion's splash in champion select.
Which skins are available to unlock for a champion?
You have a chance of getting any skin currently available in the store for your champion. If you have Teemo, for example, you’ll get the chance to play Super Teemo! Skins that are not currently available for purchase in the store will not be granted, such as PAX Twisted Fate and Silver Kayle. Of course, if you already own a skin for that champion, you can still use it. :)
Chromas do NOT apply for Skin Boosts.
Note: If you own every skin for a champion, you will not get a random skin. However, if you use a reroll or trade for another champion that you don’t own all skins for, you will unlock a random skin.
What happens when you reroll or trade champions?
If you reroll a champion while the Skin Boost is unlocked, you will get a new random skin with your new rerolled champion.
Similarly, you will get a new random skin when you trade someone for a different champion. However, if you trade a champion away and get the champion back, you will have the original skin that was previously granted to you.
