Screenrant says “The developer of Fortnite, Epic Games, seems to be cracking down on the wager matches that have become popular among the game’s top players. Wagers are one of the ways pro Fortnite players keep themselves competitive in between official tournaments. It also provides a fun and friendly way for them to engage with each other as well as their fans.

While some of these wagers only involve a small amount of money, some might be worth a significant amount of cash. Casual Fortnite players, in general, have been busy with Chapter 2 Season 6 of the popular battle royale game, which launched March 16 with an impressive cinematic that featured all the crossover characters from Season 5.


The new Fortnite season introduced a slew of new content including a redesigned map, a new battle pass, new NPCs, and several new crossover skins. So far, the game has revealed skins for Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft, Raven from DC’s Teen Titans, and Brazilian soccer star Neymar Jr.”

This new crack down on wagers was revealed by the Forntite Pro Clix who recently shared that they’ll be staying away from wagers after they received a direct warning from developer Epic Games. Clix was personally contacted by Epic games to stop wagers or there would be a chance that he would get banned. So far, Epic has yet to give an official statement on the matter but now that it’s become known, one may be released soon.

“Epic’s move to become stricter with wagers may be due to the fact that a large number of pro Fortnite competitors are under the legal gambling age and given that wagers may be considered a form of gambling, it would be a breach of the company’s terms of service. Additionally, a large portion of the Fortnite player base are also underage, so even amateur or casual players that become involved in these wagers would also be breaching the same restrictions.”
