Irresponsible streamers & affiliates?

Hi all. I'm new to this forum and to online casinos in general. I won't bore anyone with tales of losses but I would like people's thoughts on streamers and affiliates for various casinos.

Of course I realise that their videos are designed to encourage people to play but I can't see how or why it's allowed. Some are more realistic than others but some seem to reel off back to back 1000x wins that normal punters simply won't see. If their wins are genuine, how on earth can they afford to play at high stakes for long enough to get these huge wins? Some streamers eg Nickslots have several 'once in a lifetime' bonuses at £5 or £10 stakes.

Are they playing with 100% casino money? Or are the slots tuned in their favour? What is certain is that people see the wins, then in some cases bankrupt themselves trying to get one of their own which never comes.

It's extremely irresponsible and damaging in my opinion and more streamers should stress the dangers and what happens in reality. Thanks for your time!

What are these streamers spoken of? Like the things you hang at parties?. Playford may well hang a few. :eek: :laugh:
I’d love to hang many a streamer, believe me.
But as said in the grand scheme of things it ain’t that important to me at the minute.

If I'm going over old ground apologies I did look for info before starting a new thread. Really just want to know how bent they are and if as I suspect they get more wins than the average Joe, why it's allowed

It's not that we don't want to answer you OP, it's just that we've run out of things to say!

In a nutshell, small-stake streamers that showcase a passion = good

Big- money streambots that bet disproportionately to your average punter whilst proclaiming it easy = bad

Streaming is pretty much casino affiliation. Now in order to not give the masses the idea that 9 out of 10 deposits can result in a big o loss, they make deals with casino's. These deals consist out of free money to play with, or deals that could 'compensate' some sort of way by affiliation. Either way the money has to come from somewhere, and streamers with large viewers could benefit the best.

Now a paid streamer is'nt really a bad one either, but the deals he or she is getting is simply put misleading and the wins being presented like you could be the next billionaire on this planet with just a 50 cents spin is unreal to be honest. Well not unreal but at least one out of a millions of spins. It's always the low bets in where ludicrous pays exists.

In my opinion, any casino is build to lead to more risk betting. If you want to win big you gotta bet big, with the risk of losing faster, or completely gambling up your funds because of a growing addiction over time. Many people bin there, many people currently seeking help or blew it all away sort of say.

I think the time of streamers has come to an end, where youtube is banning more and more accounts now that solely set their shit up for affiliation. It does'nt belong there if you ask me and it's misleading. I guess the various spam reports on such channels finally took efforts. Entertaining you said? The only ones i could find myself entertained by just watching are just 2, the rest of 'm simply try to lure you into signing up their shit.

Remember, before the whole streaming thing, catching affiliates was mostly out of marketing in more aggresive and evasing ways. These days it's no different really where the catch is a streamer can be paid up to 70% of your deposit's loss. So yes it's lucrative when a streamer hauls in a player with 2k on avg deposits a month.

So be smart; dont signup using affiliate links. Downvote if you dislike, or even hit a spam report. That breeding and misleading shit sooner or later stops.

Streamers make ton of money with affiliation for suckers who sign up to their links and lose trying to bet with £10 bets themselves, + they get 100-300% deposit bonuses on every single deposit so they can easily afford to play these stakes in and out.

Most streamers have said that the actually winnings from slots they don't withdraw, but rather keep it as money to play on with slots, so that should give you an idea how much money it's in for them with affiliation.

Wouldn't make much sense to stream 20-40 hours a week if you don't get decent income about it. Spend a lot of time for playing slots in stream and chat with viewers wouldn't bet something many do if you don't make money out of it.

People need to take responsibility for there own actions, all this blaming others is a joke.

Sure, still watching something or making it differs little bit :) Can be that some people love to spend loads of money for playing slots to entertain people ;)

In my humble opinion the only two YouTube slot / gambling channels worth watching Are Dazza G and Hyperlinx.
Two polar opposite personalities, but both as entertaining as each other.
Not interested in any others, won't name names, but certain channels are let's just say. not representative at all of real life play.

I assume Interlog's gone all Cockney Rhyming Slang on our asses there, so essentially calling them reputable erm 'bankers'

At least that's all Google gave me. It'll do
