Want to make a cool grand playing a video game? Then read on...

The only three gaming systems I've ever owned are the Atari 2600, the original NES, and a Super NES. That's it. I'm not a gamer so I have no idea what is the 'new hotness' when it comes to games, but apparently there is a game called 'Animal Crossing' that is getting a lot of attention.

Here's the pitch. If you have 50 hours to burn and if you don't mind getting carpal tunnel, then maybe you can make a $1000 by playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Did I mention you have to play it for 50 hours? Yeah.

HighSpeedInternet.com said it is looking for a gamer with a Nintendo Switch or Switch Lite and have a copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The 'job' pays $20 an hour, times 50 hours equals $1000.

How do you enter? Applicants must complete an Internet speed test on the company's website and use submit the results on a form on their website. The company will select one winner from all applicants. The deadline to enter is August 6, 2020. You must be a legal resident of the United States over the age of 18.

The company says, "You might as well get paid real money to maintain an orchard, catch a coelacanth, and listen to K.K.'s songs, right? And with that extra cash, you could buy your real-life home a new furniture set, television, or a fancy rug to tie your room together."

I don't know what any of that means, but if you do, then maybe you can make a grand!
