Gamer ‘Ninja’ earns £400,000 a month from playing Fortnite

Fortnite gamer Ninja makes a whopping £400,000 a month just from playing video games.

The colourful streamer, who is known to close friends as Tyler Blevins, is one of the biggest names in the industry.

Though he streams games for up to 12 hours a day, he's raking in millions.

In fact, if you look at the 28-year-old's earnings from 2018, he amassed a small fortune of £10million.

Just from playing Fortnite.

Yes, the video game you can't stop hearing about. The one that your kids are constantly bugging you for "one more game" or equally kickin' off because you've not bought them more 'V-Bucks'.

Despite the streamers popularity, his growing wealth has surprised plenty of people across social media.

"Seriously though 500,000 is still like insane for a month no matter what the profession is" wrote one shocked reader on Facebook.

And another reader was very positive, writing: "I admire him for earning shed loads of money for doing what he loves and entertaining people who get pleasure out of seeing what he does…good lad."

As if that wasn't enough money already, Ninja has transcended the streaming world and is now growing his influence and money from endorsements and partnerships.

Already this year the streamer completely left Twitch and signed on to Xbox's Mixer platform, where he has no doubt pocketed a pretty chunk of change.

And more recently the Fortnite personality announced a new partnership with Adidas (!), which will no doubt add to his fast-amounting net worth .

The apparel company told The Verge it was a multi-year deal, so this will no doubt set Ninja up for a long time. Although they've not disclosed how many wedges of cold hard cash they've paid to secure his signature.

Speaking about the new deal, he said: “I can’t say specifically what is in the works with Adidas, but use your imagination.”

Adidas joins Ninja’s long list of partnerships, which includes Samsung and Red Bull.

Ninja also brings in money in ad revenue from his YouTube channel, where he has 22.4million subscribers.

Speaking about the previous year on Twitter, he said: “Let’s be real for a minute… 2018 was hands down the greatest year of my life.

“I have been working toward this goal my entire life, gaming since I was a kid. Take control of your destiny this year and make shit happen. Love you all.”
