With any gaming tournament, the cash prize is a major draw for both competitors and spectators. Evo 2022 is no different, and people are eager to see how much money is floating around. The answer is $100,000, but the breakdown for who gets what is a bit more complex.
How much money is in the prize pool for Evo 2022?
Cumulatively, there is about $100,000 in the Evolution Championship Series 2022 reward pot, as confirmed by MultiVersus. With the amount being this high, this means we can expect a prize of over $40,000 for the first place player. This beats previous prize pools that had a high record of $70,000. Since the first Evo event in 1996, Evo has awarded over $1.9 million in prize money to competition victors.
