Prize money from free to play in game touranements

Q:

There is a game called Fortnite in which there are tournaments and there is no fee to enter and whem you win you are proceeded to round 2 and then finals in which you win money and sometimes you also win money in the first round so my question is that is the prize money haram as you dont pay the entry fee its just free to play and the one who comes 1st or sometimes even 2nd and 3rd wins the money

A:

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Alaikum as-Salaam,

This is allowed and if you win, it is fine to get the prize money.
