One of the biggest events of these last days of the year has been the 2022 World Cup final that has been played in Qatar between the teams of France and Argentina, the latter being the one that was proclaimed world champion. However, popular streamer xQc was convinced that it was going to be the French team that would end up lifting the coveted title.
As they say from Mein-MMO, that led him to want bet a whopping $500,000 that it would be France that would win the game. What’s more, he published a message on Twitter in which he commented that he was convinced that it was going to be the easiest victory of his entire life, calling the Argentine players rookies.
This was accompanied by an image of the bet he had made, despite the fact that Twitch announced months ago that it was going to ban broadcasts directly related to betting, but would allow those related to sports betting. Even so, xQc was playing video games and watching videos for the duration of the match.
The point is that, if anyone has been locked in a cave in recent days and has not found out, it was Argentina that finally won the game. It was precisely this that opened the scoring with a goal from Messi to make it 1-0, which caused a lot of anger from the streamer in question.
Later Argentina scored a second goal and that’s when xQc got scared for fear of losing his hundreds of thousands of dollars and therefore not opting to win the million and a half dollars that he would have earned if his bet went ahead. For this reason, I do not hesitate to withdraw it, so that he kept $5,000losing $495,000 along the way.

The irony of this is that all this happened in the early part of the game, but France managed to level it with two goals from Mbappé in the second half, giving the impression that the team he had opted for could win. In fact, having withdrawn the bet at that time, I would have saved even more money, but panic took its toll. Will he have learned his lesson for another time?
