If you’re reading this then you’re probably a gamer or you were when you were younger. If you’re here simply for the sake of making money then you’d probably better click away because whilst it’s true that there’s money to be made in the exciting and lucrative world of gaming, these opportunities are only available to those with a deep passion for video games and online games or apps.
Much like many games involving money, or perhaps simply video games in general, gambling is something which should be done in moderation. It can become highly addictive, whether in the virtual world or the physical world, and it isn’t a recreational activity for anyone. However, if you have a talent for spotting opportunities and playing certain games to your advantage then the online live casino world might be for you. It sounds crazy, but internet betting is something which can be done on a professional level if you prove that you have the talent and skill set necessary to win over and over again; it isn’t enough to simply be lucky. Still, if you’ve got a good relationship with the slots then this might be a professional avenue for you in the gaming world.
“Wait, that’s actually a thing?” You ask. Yes, it is. The dream you and your friends had when you were little of simply being paid to play video games is actually a real job. Of course, as entailed by the title, being a game tester requires a lot of work into the actual testing of the game. You’ll have to really dig deep and replay small segments of games over and over again to find bugs or glitches, so it might not end up being quite as romantic as you imagined. Still, no job is, and this sounds far better than many other jobs out there.
If you want to achieve that perfect blend of fame and money then the growing group of YouTuber gamers might have a spot for you. The beauty of being a self-employed entrepreneur running your own business on YouTube and answer to nobody should be enough in itself, but the possibility to support yourself simply by doing what you love and playing video games is made all the better by the possibility of also growing a dedicated and supportive fanbase. Live streams of you playing games can even lead to donations if you have a supportive group of followers.
Whilst it’s never guaranteed that you’re going to capture an audience’s attention, there are routes to success on platforms such as YouTube. All you need is good equipment and a strong personality; as mentioned earlier, this can’t be forced. You need to genuinely love what you do, or you’ll simply join the group of fame-hungry fakes. In any case, whoever said that gaming wasn’t sociable or a way to support yourself in future life could be eating their words if you manage to prove them wrong on this platform.
