The world of eSports continues to dominate the world as people are changing from wanting to play a professional sport to streaming their favorite video games from the comfort of their homes. There are a lot of great things to do in terms of the eSports world and today we are going to be discussing how you can make some money from the world of video games in different ways.
Playing online games can be done in a variety of different ways, such as playing inside of a Vegas online casino with real money to make some extra cash on the side. Now, let’s talk about some ways to make money playing video games.
One way to make some money playing video games is to stream. You do not need an extensive setup in order to do so as you can simply have just the game with a camera and a microphone in order to begin. There are a bunch of free streaming networks that you can use by streaming straight off of the video game console itself like YouTube and Twitch just to name a couple.
It does not matter the amount of money that you put in to begin, it matters that you are streaming on a consistent basis and being entertaining. You can be the world’s best player at a game but if you do not entertain people, it will not matter as they will watch someone who is not as good but entertains their audience.
Streaming will help make you some money as once you begin to culminate an audience, they will begin to donate to your stream and you are simply playing video games and getting paid to do so. From there, you can upgrade your equipment if you like to increase the quality of your stream if you choose.
This is what semi-professional gamers do as well as there is a myriad of websites and apps that focus on being a host for betting on wagers. They have a bunch of games where you can do anything from one-on-one against someone to teams playing against one another. They have a bunch of games available as well ranging from sports to shooters to strategy and everything in between.
Some websites that do a great job at cultivating games as well as have a lot of people on it that I personally use are GameBattles and the app 1v1Me. You can play these games while you stream as well as most games require proof of one person winning over the other in order to successfully get the money. That way you can double dip from this list and make sure that you are maximizing your earning potential here.
Daily Fantasy Sports
Daily Fantasy Sports does not only deal with games that happen with professional athletes lie LeBron James or Aaron Judge, but can also deal with your favorite gamers as well. League of Legends has daily fantasy drafts that players can do over at DraftKings that can make you some money.
There are two different ways that a majority of their betting on gaming works and both are a lot of fun and extremely effective with some research. One way is doing a snake draft against people where you are selecting players at different positions in order to create the best team possible to get the most amount of points. The other is starting with a salary cap of a specific amount (typically $50,000) and creating a team of players to get you points and the better your score, the more money you win.
This is something you can also do while doing the other two before it on this list as it really can help you, but don’t allow yourself to wager more than you are willing to lose otherwise you can be in a tough position financially.
