In recent months, video games have not only increased in quality and popularity, but also in validity. High schools and universities around the country – including right here in the Quad Cities – have started recognizing gaming as actual sports.

Teams of players can win thousands of dollars from playing in tournaments, in the form of checks or even scholarships. Now, there's a new opportunity to make a good chunk of change through gaming this summer.

According to KWQC, a company is looking to pay someone $1,000 to play Fortnite for 50 hours. The job was posted by HighSpeedInternet early this week. Per the posting, the 50 hours do not need to be consecutive, they just need to be played between June 7 and July 31.

On top of the money, the chosen person will also receive one year of Internet service for free.

Applicants do not need to be a professional gamer but must be at least 18, and must apply for the job by May 31.
