beta testing is less about testing anything and more about going to school and bragging to your group of peers that you are playing a game they they cannot...and this makes you feel really special..

Except....

No.
You don't get paid to "beta" test.
Alpha testers /might/ be paid if its internal testing.

External testing? FU bragging rights and paying a game for free.

There will always be people willing to do it for free. No one actually needs to pay you for your beta testing services.
