Kick star xQc hits jackpot with CS2 Major betting win

His $200,000 wager on Natus Vincere (NAVI) against FaZe Clan resulted in a payout of $842,137.34

Popular Kick streamer Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reportedly made a substantial sum of money by betting on the CS2 Major Copenhagen grand final match.

His wager of $200,000 on a 2-1 win for Natus Vincere against FaZe Clan resulted in an impressive payout of $842,137.34, as indicated by screenshots from one of his recent streams.

This victory in betting marks a significant financial gain for xQc, surpassing even the prize money earned by the winning team, NAVI, whose share of the combined $1.25 million prize pool amounted to $500,000.

Despite primarily being recognized as a Just Chatting broadcaster and gamer, xQc has shown a keen interest in gambling, streaming various casino games on his platform.

Although he has asserted that his lucrative Kick contract does not include any special clauses regarding betting, his involvement in such activities has been noticeable.

xQc has previously responded to skepticism regarding his $100 million contract with Kick, clarifying that it resembles a conventional corporate agreement without involvement in gambling or crypto.

He refuted claims made by other streamers that the deal included elements like gambling money and funds from crypto gambling platform Stake.com.

During the intense final match between NAVI and FaZe Clan, xQc was informed by a fellow co-streamer that his potential winnings from the bet could exceed those of the tournament champions.

This revelation surprised the Kick star, leading to laughter and disbelief when he realized the magnitude of his possible earnings.

The victory for xQc comes amidst discussions about the inaugural CS2 Major and its memorable moments.

However, the tournament faced disruption during the quarter-final match between MOUZ and G2, when protestors, reportedly instigated by CSGOEmpire founder Monarch, stormed the stage.

As a result, xQc experienced frustration when protestors stormed the stage, disrupting the game. He had also placed a significant bet of $200,000 on MOUZ to win, but their loss to G2 led him to express his anger towards the protestors.

xQc believed that MOUZ had the potential to make a comeback before the disruption caused by the stage crashers. His reaction to the incident highlighted the impact of external factors on the outcome of the game, as he described the protest as “not even fun” because it interfered with the overall atmosphere.

This disruption during the match is believed to be linked to ongoing controversies within the esports industry.
