The phrase 'one in a million' holds true for many people who enter the lottery, whether through smaller draws or massive ones like the Mega Millions, and it's rare to personally know anybody who's netted more than a few bucks in winnings.
But ex-Call of Duty pro Censor hit the jackpot after he won a whopping $50,000 on a $1 Quickdraw lotto ticket, and he lovingly decided to splash all the cash on his deserving mom.
In a 15-minute YouTube video, Censor detailed how he managed to win the insane amount of money. "We had $4 total on the ticket. It was two games, and a game is just $1. But we paid the extra dollar for the extra multiplier. So, basically how it works is on one of the two games I won $5,000, and we got the multiplier, and it hit x10. It can be anything from 1 to 10, and it hit x10 which is the best it could hit."
The esports pro took his mom along with him to the lottery office in Long Island, New York where they cashed the lucky ticket in for a $50,000 check. The workers were shocked, revealing that it's the biggest win they'd ever seen on a Quickdraw ticket. "Wow, nice! I've never seen that!" the cashier lady exclaimed.
Some people who win big like this could be tempted to gamble further, and obviously that carries its risks. Censor had some wise words for viewers who could be inspired to play the lotto after his jackpot. "I just wanna make it clear to you guys out there, if you're gonna gamble, you have to do it at your own risk, you have to understand the risks of it. It is very dangerous, it can be very addicting as well. Just make sure you guys think twice before you do it."
When detailing how he would spend the money, Censor claimed that he is going to spend every penny of it on his mom, buying her a new car, fixing her roof, getting her new carpets for her house, and paying off some credit card debt she has.
FaZe Censor has retired from competitive Call of Duty twice now, but recently shocked fans with a surprise hint at another return.
After Modern Warfare was announced back in May, the esports pro proudly tweeted, "I'm winning champs on Modern Warfare next year."

Fans are skeptical that Censor will return, given that he's made hints in the past that were never followed up on, but only time will tell. The Modern Warfare release would be the perfect time for his comeback.
