Man Spends $1m On Game of War
Court appearance for big spender
To America we go with news of a court appearance for a man in California who admitted to stealing $4.8m from his place of work.
Kevin Lee Co worked in accounts for the heavy-equipment company Holt and during 2008 to 2015 it turns out that he embezzled the millions of dollars. He admitted during a court appearance that he had spent the funds on plastic surgery, luxury cars, a golf club membership… and $1m on mobile MMO strategy game Game of War.
You’ll know about the game if you haven’t played it yourself as it’s benefitted from a high-profile promotional campaign starring model Kate Upton and it happens to be one of the biggest mobile titles around. Its revenue would have been boosted by this chap’s serious spending, of course, and he now faces possible jail time for his sins.
