FaZe Clan‘s Doug ‘Censor‘ Martin might be known for his incredible Call of Duty skills, but he’s also proven he’s got incredible luck after winning big bucks on a $1 lotto ticket.

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.

He’s got some luck

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.

He recently hinted at a Call of Duty return…

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.


Stormzy drops ‘Rainfall’ music video in Watch Dogs, and it actually slaps

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy 'filmed' his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
