    Hello members, I want to ask if we can earn money through gaming. One of my opponent in my class earns few dollars online through gaming but I could not find how he does this. I am gaming since a long time but never had any idea of earning from it. If anyone has an information about my query, please, feel free to share your views.

    Thanks in advance

    It depends what 'gaming' you are talking about? if you mean gambling, then yes, it is possible on certain games. I.e. if you can play Poker then you can make some money from this online. Online roulette is another one that you can make a few $ in short bursts. If you play for too long then you will lose your money back.

    Thanks a lot for your prompt response. Well, I don't play such games like Poker and Roulette online. LAN games and flash games are my areas of interest and can do well in these kinds. I have won few rewards in 'Online Tournament' as well. If you know something in this area and suggest me that would do a help.

    Thanks

    Some sites do pay you to play games in an effort to encourage you to play their games. However, it's really only a promotional offer and it's unlikely that you will earn decent money from it. Have you asked your friend which sites are paying him?

    Some gaming site's pay for playing games I have seen them but I do not like to play there as it loads slowly. And also cannot trust them. You can sarch in Google for list of site.

    Yes, there are many game site provide cash and prize for the member. However, this kind of game site normally not for the international member but only available for member from certain countries.
    Wondering where are you from?

    Well there's a posibility to earn playing MMO's - virtual money selling. However it is risky - if you get caught by admins you'll probably be banned for life.

    Well, maybe specific games hold in-game contests/tournaments/battles where you can earn money if you win. Some games hold "real" tournaments where you have to go somewhere and play the game against professionals elsewhere; if you win you get money...

    Online gaming is a nice way to earn money online. A usual single player web games offers cash prizes. If you are like to play in a group there are multiplayer games and tournaments to earn money online.

    Most of this kind of game site only provide cash prize to the winner. It is still good if you are game's fan

    As i mentioned, most of them are only available for certain countries but not international member. Therefore, paid to play game is not so popular

    Good for them, what a way to make a living. I hope they look after their eyes and their posture with all that time they spend in front of a PC monitor.

    Yes, this is other type of freelance job. They called it as "game tester", they test the new launched or beta game, then give write feedback or review to the developer. Developer will pay them for the feedback / review.
