It pays a lot to be the creator of a really really really successful game that every gamer is obsessing about. 35 year old Swedish video game programmer Markus Persson forked out $70 million cash for a 23,000 square foot mega-mansion in Beverly Hills and by doing this he had outbid Jay Z and Beyonce who wanted the same house.

Markus Persson is much richer than the two musicians since he sold the game Minecraft to Microsoft for $2.5 billion. This guy has now paid the highest price ever paid for a house in Beverly Hills. The mansion has a candy room, car showroom, vodka and tequila bars, 54 foot curved glass door which opens onto a pool, 14 bathrooms, apartment sized closets and a movie theater.
