A new way of online skill-gaming has come up and I am very excited that I can share the webpage with you which will substantially change the way of online competitive gaming. Finally, there is a site where gamers can earn real money playing video games from home not needing to attend the LAN events. I am sure you have been waiting a long time for this one. Didn't you? At BeGosu aka. BeGood one can play PC (Counter Strike, Starcraft, CS:S), Xbox 360 & Playstation 3 (FIFA, NBA, NHL, Fight Night Round) and Arcade Mini Games (Pac-Man, Tetris, Asteroids) by challenging other players or participating in tournaments for real money in real time, but also for fun, for free and to win hardware prizes by doing so! Isn't that fantastic!?!
How to Sign Up?
You can sign up by going directly to the webpage - www.begosu.com or you can sign up through the Arcade Link. As connecting through www.begosu.com doesn't add any benefit to your account, I would suggest you the Arcade Link option. Upon creation of the profile it credits your account with € 2 to start off with. Nice! This bonus is an onetime bonus, meaning it is bound to your IP (doesn't matter how many accounts you make) and thus you will get it only once. You can use this 2 EUR to challenge other players, enter a cash tournament of your favourite game or to make a buy-in to play an arcade game and get placed on the arcade games weekly leaderboard which makes weekly payments depending to your end-of-the-month position. NEAT!
When you reach the homepage, you navigate your mouse to the "create a free account" bracket. Here you type in your desired username and click on the "sign up" button. At the registration page you fill out the rest of the required information (a password and an email), read the terms and conditions and click on the "create a free account" to finish with the registration. Finally, your account is created, credited with 2 EUR (if you referred through the Arcade Link to register) and now you are ready to play. Pretty easy, eh?!
Below you can find an extremely funny video which I recorded for the purposes of the BeGosu's video contest. I don't mean to brag but it is quite cool isn't it!? :)

How to Cash Out?
I bet the main question on your mind at this point is how can you cash out your winnings?! Fortunately, I have an answer for that as well. When your account is veryfied you can simply transfer your winnings to your bank account via moneybookers.com.
Finally, I would like to show my appraisal towards their customer service since they are very helpful and understanding. You can go and have a chat with them if you would like to (they offer an online chat service) :) . Further, If anything happens on the site while you were playing a cash game and if the error might be caused by them, they will refund all your buy-ins applicable. Another useful information is that they are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and they run multiple tournaments on a daily basis offered on different platforms at different games which are listed several lines above.
If you have any further question you can contact me at any time or you can find me on the site, username: TaMaFe.
