There are a number of forms of online gaming and, if played properly, all of them can be rather lucrative. From streaming, e-sports through to casino games, we will outline the basics you need in order to make playing a way of earning.
Video game streaming has become huge. Some channels bring in a couple of billion users in just a month and the number of people who watch these games can be even higher. ‘Streamers’ are simply players who film themselves playing video games and then stream it online for people to watch. There are a number of sites where this takes place. Viewers pay a subscription fee to the channel and can watch all the games. In this way, players receive a percentage of this money.
In recent times e-sports has become huge. Gone are the days where the computer kid was a nerd. Instead, if you are truly exceptional with a joystick, you might very well be in with a chance to make some big bucks. Games such as Counter-Strike have become sports with the players the athletes. Millions of people tune in to watch these games live and if successful, the teams involved in the tournaments can win some serious cash prizes.
Online casinos are also a way to make some money for free. Spending some time searching out the best welcome bonuses such as ample amounts of free spins or no deposit bonuses can stand you in good stead. Playing well can result in winnings coming from the games without any money having been put down. Bear in mind here that often wagering requirements do apply unless you are able to find a bonus with none – they do exist. For the most part, though, this is not necessarily the way to earn money.
Whatever the method, it is entirely possible to play games, do something you love and actually make a living out of it.
