16 Year Old is a Fortnite Millionaire

Kyle Giersdorf, is probably better known as "Bugha" which is his gamer tag.

But to regular non gamers at home he's probably even better known as "That kid who won 3 million dollars US playing Fortnite". 

At only 16 years of age, "Bugha" entered the Fortnite World Cup which started as an online competition with around 40 million players and eventually whittled down to a final 100 participants who gathered at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York on the weekend to finish the battle royal competition off.

Epic Games who own and control the game gave out around 40 millions dollars US in prize money across the competition, not bad considering the game is essentially free to play if you don't get sucked in by the additional paid content. 

So how do you become a Fortnite Millionaire?

Start by building a reputation through practise, dedication and a whole lot of luck. Well done "Bugha"!
