Playing online games before was largely considered to be a hobby, but now it’s a viable source of income.
You can take the best of both worlds and make money while enjoying games. Here are 4 ways how.
Try Your Hand with Casino Games
Playing in an online casino allows you the chance to make money and enjoy a hobby at the same time.
For those who are wondering, can I play casino online for real money? The answer is a resounding yes. However, to make this happen you will need to weed out the fake and fraudulent sites from the legit ones.
Make a bet, spin the wheel (or play a hand) and hope for the best. If all goes well you’ll have made some money after an hour or two.
Get an Audience
Did you know that there’s a market for gaming spectatorship? Apparently, people will pay money to see someone play video games on the internet.
Currently there are two major platforms where you can do this- Twitch and YouTube. You’ll also need a capture card and a camera so they will see your in-game avatar and your reactions as well.
Sign Up with a Sponsor
If you’re one of the lucky few who has thousands of followers on YouTube or Twitch, you might get a sponsorship from a game company or a game peripheral manufacturer.
A sponsorship is when a company gives you free stuff, or pays you to play their game or use their hardware. It’s a win-win situation on both ends as they can advertise on your channel and you get to use the latest hardware.
Join a Tournament
eSports is a serious matter, and professional players can earn thousands or even millions in a big game tournament.
If you’re competitive and confident that you can win against most players, feel free to sign up and join.
