Who knew you could become a millionaire by playing video games?

One of the hottest games on the Internet has spawned a tournament that offers more prize money than The Masters, Tour de France and the Kentucky Derby.

The game is Dota 2 and a team of five players from China, named Team Newbee (and dubbed China's Dream Team), have taken home a $5 million prize from the International 4, arguably the biggest and most lucrative video game tournament there is in competitive gaming.

The second-place team? They took home close to $1.5 million. Not too bad at all.

Dota 2 is a sequel to Defense of the Ancients, which was a spinoff of the insanely popular World of Warcraft games. It pits teams of five against each other, and they battle it out to protect special structures called Ancients.
