S1mple reveals what he does with all the CS:GO prize money
The lethal marksman who is a threat to every opposition in any possible scenario and situation, recently registered an insane overall HLTV rating of 1.51 at Cologne. But as merciless as he may be on the server, s1mple in reality is quite humble in the way he chooses to spend his tournament prize money.
During his recent Twitch stream, while engaging with his viewers, s1mple came forward to reveal what exactly does he do with his share of the tournament earnings, saying that,
I always give everything (tournament prize money) to my parents, or it just lies with me. If my parents like something, I will buy it for them. I want to upgrade my car, I have become old. The main thing is to make my parents happy so that they can enjoy the life that I enjoy. It is the most important.Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev
