100 Thieves owner Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag took to Twitter today to distribute over $50,000 to a number of lucky fans.

Right on time today, Nadeshot revealed his absolutely bonkers surprise, promising free money to followers who responded to his tweet with their Cash App $Cashtag.
So far, the former Call of Duty professional has given away an eye-popping $50,000+ to fans, giving back to the community that supported him on his journey to esports success. This only seems fair—after all, 100 Thieves has grown to be a highly profitable brand since Nadeshot founded the esports organization in 2015, and Foreign Policy gauged his net worth at around $2 million last December. $50,000 is a massive amount of money, but it’s a drop in the bucket for an esports superstar like Nadeshot.
So far, it appears Nadeshot is selecting the lucky winners at random, though the specific amount of money he is donating to each individual seems to be anywhere between $100 and $600. At the time of writing, the donations are still going out, so head on over to Nadeshot’s Twitter and see if you’re lucky enough to cash in on this extremely generous giveaway.
