There's a mysterious donor who's giving away thousands of dollars to World of Warcraft and Hearthstone Twitch streamers. Watch as hundred of hopefuls flock to the video-streaming website in hope of getting a cash windfall.
Mysterious user Amhai, who's still remaining anonymous, has given away more than $100,000 in donations to his favorite streamers, according to the.
You can see one such donation, to Warcraft streamer Chance "Sodapoppin" Morris, in the video above. Not much of a reaction to a free ten grand, in all honesty.
Apparently Amhai just likes seeing the surprised reactions (or admirably restrained ones) as he flings out wads of money. User and Google searches for the shadowy benefactor have turned up pretty much nothing, but so far all we know is that he's really bloody rich.
Isaac “Azael” Cummings-Bentley, another streamer who became friends with Amhai after a donation, has denied the popular rumour that he's a wealthy Arabian oil baron, simply saying “I don’t think he really wants anything said about him. He is just a very, very wealthy individual.”
With Hearthstone currently all the rage on Twitch, and new WOW expansion Warlords of Draenor just around the corner, the random donations show no sign of drying up.
