So for past few years Metal casino stream on tuesday and thursday for 2 hours a night giving away free spins and metal merch, they have a host and play slots with metal music in the back, Now suddenly when they was due to come back tonight after there normal summer break they 1st post on instagram that UK players can no longer claim free spins given away and now

❗️IMPORTANT INFORMATION❗️We have been forced to put the live stream on hold due to UK regulations. We really wish we were aware of the extent of this before the re-launch last week, but unfortunately there is nothing else we can do other than cancel the scheduled streams until we’ll hopefully come up with a new solution.


Has there been any changes to UKGC recently about this issue and free spins. ?

You are not allowed to stream UK casinos (from the UK I believe?) on Twitch so maybe its that

They based in Sweden. So that would not apply to them right?

Updated they replied to me and said

We are a casino and play by much stricter rules than for example affiliates who have more freedom. But you can’t regulate people under 18 watching on Twitch. And UK demands a safe age restriction for all casino content. We are trying to solve this but we don’t know what will happen.

They run under the Skill On Net license in the UK don't they? So yes, they would be in breach of that if they don't have proper age verification, which twitch don't.

Brilliant news! Anything that restricts streaming and streamers gets a massive thumbs up from me.. made my night this
I would agree with this, BUT this is slightly different its not just a streamer playing slots pushing out links to 10 casinos for people to join, It was more than that it was way more interactive with loads of prizes given away every stream it would get around 50 viewers a stream with the most of them being the same bunch every stream it wasn't pushing sign ups so to speake it was more of a added extra from the casino to its regular players with loads of metal content songs special guest merch giverways ect.

Doesn't matter - it has casino branding so cannot use Twitch to UK market as no age-gating. I'm still trying to figure out how multinational casinos can use YT with no age-gating because it doesn't apply to some markets but does to others like the UK.

Im not arguing about the "rules" I agree and see it falls in to it, but what Im saying is why I agree with ben about it being good thing overall, In this situation with this stream and casino when its more unique to a typical slot streamer im not so happy about it going. But fully understand why it will

You can still get free spins in the UK......
I know you can so thats why im confused why they banned Uk players from claiming them in stream when its always been allowed, that's why I thought something might of changed recently and maybe they have been told about not us as they said its not down to them why Uk players couldn't get free spins

....for now.

Waiting on some UKGC employee to have their next 'brainwave' whilst taking their morning shite :rolleyes:
Soon they will remove freespin features from slots.
You know, because thats what makes people come back and play slots, to get the features.
If you remove the freespins from Dead or alive, nobody would play it anymore.
Problem solved.

You heard it here first.

freebies ain't what they used to be, haven't been for 2-3 years now.

You only have to look at the FS thread on here for proof, its pathetic and sad.

I miss a quick PM to my rep buddies after a small run of losing sessions and "hey presto" £50 bonus with 5x wagering :D :D :D
