Growing up just about every kid played video games. Some play the basics like Super Mario or you could get as advanced as you wanted. Now video game players are all playing for a chance at a $30 million dollar prize pool playing in the Fortnite World Cup which begins in April.

The amount of money is extreme but as you can expect the players entering this worldwide tournament are beyond dedicated to being a top performer. According to Fortune.com, there will be 10 weekly online qualifiers open to every player those weeks will be from April 13th to June 16th. The top performers from each week will have a chance to win a piece of a $1 million dollar prize.

After the qualifying rounds the top 100 players and 50 teams will go to New York for the Fortnite World Cup from July 26th to 28th. That's where the #30 million prize pool will be up for grabs. The solo winner will take $3 million for just themselves.

As I continue to learn more about Fortnite these huge prizes might seem large, but Fortnite made over 2.4 billion dollars in 2018 so they can afford huge gaming tournaments like this.
