Kickback, a platform that lets you make money playing video games, launched yesterday. 

Kickback creates tournaments for players of all skill levels, where everyone has a shot at winning money. This is done by using new matchmaking technology and a state of the art anti-cheat system.

The first game to launch on the platform is Minecraft which, contrary to popular belief, can be played competitively and boasts 50 million users. Because the game is highly customizable, people can create a deathmatch, similar to the plot of the movie Hunger Games or a Zombie Apocalypse where winners are the last to survive. Players can play for free to win bragging rights, or enter a tournament with $1.00 to win anywhere from $2-$100.
