Apex Legends pro Mande have nearly 300,000 followers on Twitch alone, and he’s now broken down the details of a gambling company’s incredible offer to promote their website on their stream.
In recent years, there has been a large overlap between gaming and gambling on Twitch. Streamers like Xpozed and Trainwreck have been at the forefront of this movement, but it seems like one company has been trying to convince Mande to join the tide.
They were ultimately unsuccessful, but the top support player went into depth on the offer and what might make someone take the kind of deal that was on the table for them.
Apex Legends pro Mande abandons $400,000 gambling deal he shot down
in one Videos from July 28th Apex Legends pro Mande had a conversation about the influx of cryptocurrency-based organizations getting involved in esports, like the $210 million deal that brought FTX and TSM together in June 2021.
After talking about how life-changing that amount of money could be, the streamer brought up this gambling offer and talked about how lucrative it could have been.
“I’ve already said no to a hell of a big offer from a pretty big gambling site, and it wasn’t even that bad,” he said. “I think I had to play 4 hours a week and they gave me $15,000 a month.”
He went on to explain that the company would also give him $6,000 to play with each stream and if he got the money back when he was done he could keep it. “I think the offer was something like $300,000 to $400,000 in six months.”
Apex Legends pro Mande didn’t elaborate on why he didn’t accept the deal, but it may be that he was feeling good about his current routine. He later mentioned that if someone offered a deal that would change the course of the next 20 or 30 years for a streamer, they’d have to be a fool to say no.
