Ajay, popularly known as Total Gaming, Ajju, or Ajju Bhai, is an Indian gaming YouTuber with an estimated net worth of ₹7 crores ($800,000-$850,000) and earns an annual salary of up to ₹8-15 lakhs ($10,000-$19,000) as reported by multiple sources. Ajay first rose to prominence for his live streams of Garena Free Fire, a popular battle royale game in India, which was released following the ban of PUBG in India. Total Gaming currently holds the title of being the most subscribed Indian gaming YouTube channel.
Though Ajay is recognized for being the most successful and most subscribed gaming YouTuber in India, according to Miss Malini, a popular Indian Page 3 magazine, YouTube is not Ajay’s primary occupation. He also works as a software engineer, freelance coder, and growth hacker alongside his YouTube career. Ajay was first introduced to video games through his mobile phone where he used to play Clash of Clans in 2015, owing to the fact he did not have a high-end mobile that could handle the requirements of more demanding games like PUBG.
Following the ban imposed by the Indian government on several Chinese Apps, under the pretense of security and privacy concerns, PUBG was banned and made inaccessible from Indian ISPs. This created a void in the Indian gaming market, which was quickly filled by battle royale games like Garena Free Fire and BGMI, which was effectively a copy of PUBG. After noticing a number of his friends playing Garena Free Fire in 2018, his desire to play the game was only prohibited by his ability to acquire a high-end mobile phone that could support it.
Ajay subsequently started playing Free Fire on his PC and, after mastering the nuances and intricacies of the game, decided to start showing the world his proficiency at the game. After mastering the game mechanics, he decided to enter YouTube and started two channels on October 9, 2018, under the names Total Gaming and Ajay Verse.
He started uploading gameplay clips of him playing Garena Free Fire, and tips & tricks on how to improve their mechanics. Until 2020, Total Gaming was exclusively a Free Fire-only channel, after which it started featuring Ajay’s live streams of him playing GTA V, Spider-Man, and Incredible Hulk, making him one of India’s few variety live streamers. Ajay Verse subsequently became his new destination for gaming clips.
Following the massive success of his two YouTube accounts, Ajay decided to further expand his YouTube empire and registered four channels in 2021 under the names, Ajjubhai (joined Jan 1, 2021), TG Highlights (joined January 16, 2021), TG Tournament (joined September 25, 2021), and Total Gaming Shorts (joined November 11, 2021). All of his YouTube channels currently are based around gaming and cumulatively boast a subscriber count of over 43 million, and have accrued a mind-boggling seven billion views.
Total Gaming’s YouTube empire is how Ajay earns most of his $600,000-$650,000 valuation, from his YouTube presence and AdSense revenue from his six hugely popular and successful YouTube channels.
Net Worth Spot estimates that the Total Gaming YouTube channel earns an estimated $15k a year, based on the estimate that YouTube channels earn anywhere between $3-$7 per ten thousand views. However, these are conservative estimations and Ajay could earn over $20k a year. Keep in mind YouTube rates are different for Indian channels.
Social Blade reports Total Gaming earns anywhere between $3k - $7k per month and anywhere between $10k - $25k per year. Apart from this, he has five other YouTube channels that also offer quite a bit of money via AdSense revenue.
Not a lot of information is available about Total Gaming in terms of any real estate or vehicles that he may own. It should also be noted that Total Gaming is yet to do a face reveal.
