Getting rich by playing video games. That sounds like a dream job, right? Obviously you'll need awesome gaming skills but there is enough money in e-sports to make this happen. Let's take a look at six games that could make you a millionaire!
1. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft - 2.2 million dollar worldwide
Even though the card game Hearthstone is not even two years old, Blizzard and others companies have organized several major tournaments with a total prize pool exceeding 2 million dollars. At BlizzCon 2014 there was a quarter million dollars up for grabs for the best and most tactical card players out there. The most successful players are from China, followed by the United States, South Korea and Germany.
2. SMITE - 3.5 million dollars worldwide
SMITE is a bit of a newcomer in the world of MOBAS, but developer Hi-Rez Studios is betting big on E-Sports. With the launch of the game they organized a two hundred thousand dollar tournament. They certainly topped that this year with a 2.6 million dollar World Championship! The biggest ballers in SMITE are from the United States, followed by Denmark, the UK and Canada.
3. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - 6.5 million dollars worldwide
Before Counter-Strike Global Offensive got big, everybody was playing Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Source. These two old games already had a total combined prize pool of 13 million dollars up until now. CS:GO is the newest version of this team based shooter with a total amount of 6.5 million dollars of awarded prize money. In general Swedish players are the most successful.
4. Starcraft II - 17 million dollars worldwide
The first Starcraft laid the foundations for E-Sports and is responsible for creating the first superstars in professional gaming. Starcraft 2 lives up to its predecessor and has offered an amazing 17 million dollar of prize money to the best players in various tournaments over the years. The best players in the world are all from South Korea, even though there has been some success by Chinese, American and European players.
5. League of Legends - 23 million dollars worldwide
League of Legends is without a doubt one of the most popular games on the planet right now. No wonder the best players in the world earn a lot of money. With all the big and the smaller tournaments combined players have earned over 23 million dollars worldwide. The Korean gamers have won the most of that money, followed by Chinese, American and Russian players. The next big tournament is in October.
6. DOTA 2 - 50 million dollars worldwide
In August the biggest prize pool in gaming up until now was given to the best players at The International 2015. Valve's DOTA 2 is huge in the world of E-Sports. The International had a prize pool exceeding 18 million dollars which is insane. In the last four years over 50 million dollars worth of prize money has been distributed over the best DOTA 2 players in the world. Most of this money has been won by the Chinese, followed by the Americans, Canadians and Swedish.
If you want to become a pro gaming millionaire you could also try Splatoon, because Nintendo is doing a 1 million dollar tournament in Japan next year. And if shooters are more your thing, there will be a 1 million dollar Halo 5 tournament later this year. Good luck future gaming millionaires!

Football game with REAL rewards, easy to make money!
Es un juego de futbol, el dinero del juego es canjeable a dinero real! tiene cadena de referidos! disfrutad de ello!
Funny... The music in this video is the music that plays whenever I walk into any of these fucking tournaments and everybody screams "HEY NO FUCKING LEGENDS! WE NEED TO WIN!" Seriously guys let a god play among the paupers. Just because I've never played these games before but have a superior intellect and tactical minded prowess doesn't mean you should take defeat so badly!
Hirez studios is a horrible company. They have horrible support and the people who work there are corrupt and abuse their power by banning people from the game that they don't like. They'll never reach the success of league and dota. Horrible company
I bet the chinese won because of the high-level account credentials they STOLE from other gamers. I mean all the chinese competitors are either incredible strategists from the MILITARY or third-partys that steal all the other countries' good accounts.
1) Africa is NOT a country lol, its a continent of over 50 countries, plz go back to school and learn some geography
2) People from richer countries cant really help africa because they:
a)are not even that poor and there are rich african countries where people are actually fat
b)no amount of money will feed all poor african families. We would need billions of dollars just to make a slight change, and only in some countries, not all
c)most of the donated money goes to supplementing charity organizations because, guess what, they need to pay their employees and taxes as well
So basically for every 100$ donated only like 10-20$ will actually go towards poor families
I am not gonna donate just to pay salaries of charity employees. Fuck them. And i am not going to africa either cuz nothing to see there. Over and out.
china and korea, part of united state are the worst countries with many no social life people. no life? ger one and be productive. im just talking of NO SOCIAL LIFE, not in general so if you insult me, comment will be erased.
Dude After reading your other comments, it sounds like your just a sheep for socialist leaders.. Lol do you have any free mind? Your just a mindless sheep following a random leader. "Kids lives should be filled with heavy work, not fun with video games" lol dude.
What does your comment even say dude? Your insulting America because you think many of us don't have a social life? What kind of ignorant, immature person could even think of something like that? Do us all a favor and practice writing complete sentences.
I love starcraft... Once i had a chance to play goldleag but it was too stressful for me. 50apm is what i consider normal, everything above is hard to concentrate for me or just too stressfull. So i stayed silver just because it feels more like gaming. Starcraft has also a lot of diffrent ways to attack.a big variaty ive never seen in a game. I wish blizzard would make more games.
The point i was making by mentioning sonic 2 is that i have a lot of years, favorite games and consoles on my metaphorical gaming belt.
I am by no ones definition a newbie.
I could spend half an hour typing out a list of all my systems and favorite games but why should I have to prove my credentials to someone who who most likely has been gamer less years than me anyway
+BRNT I like RPGs but find most "traditional" MMOs dull as dishwater.
I like shooters but the multiplayer often attract a rather immature crowd.
I've tried a couple of MOBAs and none of them kept me interested me past the tutorial.
My fave modern genre is actually the RPG-Shooter but they are few and far between
Ive been gaming since i got my hands on Sonic 2 as a kid.. I haven't stopped since... defo not a newbie.
I do like 1v1 fighters but most competitive players have had a big head start, and catching up in games with 100s of combos and remembering there frame counts is no easy feat
Trust me I'm no noob, I've been a gamer longer than I haven't been a gamer and have accumulated a lot of (useless) knowledge in the process. I started out on a Megadrive and slowly worked my way up to current gen.
Unfortunately the kinda games I really get into are ones you can't play competitively and very few competitive games actually feel balanced and fair to me
When will people realise? The free cheese is only in the mousetrap. You will NOT achieve free money by gaming. Even I realise that though I play league of legends. I play it for fun. Tournaments with prize pools are no fun, just victory. They ruined the game fun experience IMHO.
+Act Of Vengeance yeah the prizes seem nice, but the sponsor ships are even bigger, if they can afford to pay millions to the top 1 team of teenagers, just imagine how much money they are actually making off that single team.
