You could get paid for the game as TikTok pays out thousands to players online

Gaming influencers on TikTok make thousands of pounds from every post – while millions of gaming fans tune in to see them play.

According to researchers at Slingo, Lucky Maker is just ahead of player Austyn Brown, who has 5.8 million followers and brings in around £4,767 per post.

Meanwhile, the UK’s 18-year-old TikToker is the highest-earning TikToker, having amassed more than 1.5 billion likes on the platform. He makes up to £28,682 per post despite having fewer followers than his American gaming counterparts.

If you’re thinking of becoming a mega-rich online gamer, there are a few titles that seem to bring in extra cash.

According to research by Japan101, the top-grossing MOBA game for Twitch streamers is League of Legends, with an average audience of 170,000 tuning in to live games.

Dota 2 is also a big earner for competitive players, with Danish player Johan ‘N0tail’ Sundstein raking in £5,962,855 from playing 130 tournaments.

However, it is not clear how big the market for Dota 2 and LoL clips is on TikTok. If the success of the players we mentioned is anything, you should hone your skills at Fortnite, Minecraft, or in the case of Austyn Brown, card games.

It also helps to be funny, have good screen personality, and be great at editing. So if you’re not really good at all of these things, it might not be time to quit the day job just yet.
