YouTuber Buys $4.5 Million Mansion With Fortune He Made From Playing Minecraft

    Jordan Maron, a 23-year-old Youtuber who made his fortune recording himself playing the video game “Minecraft,” recently dropped over $4.5 million on a deluxe hilltop mansion in the Hollywood Hills. 

    Better known as CaptainSparklez on Youtube, Maron has an estimated 1.9 billion views on his channel.

    His jaw-dropping 4,100-square-feet crib includes three bedrooms, four baths, glass-railed terraces, a wet bar, outdoor fireplace, “party-sized spa,” and infinity pool, reports Variety.

    Incidentally, the billionaire founder of “Minecraft,” Markus “Notch” Persson, has a 23,000-square-foot pad down the street that he dished out $70 million for in December of last year.

    Seems like gaming worked out for Maron.
