Riot notes that extra bonus RP does not apply to mobile payment methods and that there will be no refunds for RP purchases made prior to the announcement or the promotion.
For those unfamiliar with how League of Legends' business model operates, players can opt to spend real-life cash on in-game currency known as RP (Riot Points). RP can be used to unlock champions or purchase alternate skins for them. Alternatively, playing games will earn you Influence Points (IP), another form of in-game currency that can be used to unlock champions and purchase runes; however, you can not buy champion skins with IP.
