Well it’s certainly the case for one Essex school boy who made history when he was the runner-up at the 2019 Fortnite World Cup. He and his partner bagged a whopping 1.8 million pounds from a long stint of game play!
Jaden ‘Wolfiez’ Ashman, along with his Dutch gaming partner David ‘Rojo’ Jong fell short to Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist Pedersen and David ‘Aqua’ W at the World Cup finals in the Big Apple.
