xQc Wins 4x More Than CS2 IEM Dallas 2024 Champions G2 From Betting

Streamer's Lucky Streak Continues as He Makes Bank on CS2

Streamer Felix “xQc” has hit the jackpot, outearning the champions of the CS2 Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2024. While G2 Esports celebrated their victory with a $100,000 prize, xQc raked in a staggering $400,000 from his bet on the tournament, a sum that’s four times the winner’s purse.

xQc’s windfall was revealed in a post on social media, where he shared the unexpected success of his wager. The streamer’s earnings not only exceeded the prize money for the winning team but also surpassed the entire event’s total prize pool of $250,000.

The Intel Extreme Masters series is a prestigious global circuit of CS2 tournaments, culminating in significant events like the one in Dallas. G2’s triumph at this event has secured them a chance to compete at IEM Cologne 2024, which boasts a quadrupled prize pool of $1 million.

xQc is no stranger to the thrills of esports betting. He previously won over $800,000 by predicting a 2-1 NAVI victory in the CS2 Major Copenhagen Grand Final, a sum greater than the $500,000 NAVI took home for their win.

However, the betting world is fickle, and xQc has also experienced significant losses. He lost $200,000 when MOUZ fell to G2 at the CS2 Major Copenhagen and has admitted to losing more than $700,000 on nearly 789,000 bets on the gambling platform Stake.

xQc’s recent betting win at IEM Dallas 2024 highlights the potential for high earnings in esports betting, sometimes even exceeding the prizes for the actual competitors. While his success is noteworthy, it’s essential to remember that gambling comes with risks, as evidenced by xQc’s own history of both wins and losses. As the esports industry continues to grow, so does the betting scene surrounding it, offering both opportunities and cautionary tales.
