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.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
