Okay, To start, this is a question not an accusation or talking behind his back, its just my head hurts after trying to analyze an answer to a question I asked Nickslots this week on YT.

The question was

Since you started streaming (around 1 year) are you up or down playing slots Nick?

Nick answered with im up over all since I started streaming.

Now, Im sure you are all aware that unless you hit a progressive jackpot slots are 100% negative expected value long term.

Now with the amount he has played in the last year, is it possible to be up?

Somehow he has achieved the near impossible, and I want to believe he is up over that amount of time.

What do you lot think ?

I guess he always play with a bonus. Most streamers are EV+ because they always get deposit bonuses and often with much better terms.

Streamers (the more popular at least) should never be compared to normal players as they play a "different game". You will never get the same amount of bonuses (especially not with same terms) as they even if you would deposit 10 times more.

I can't see why not. I normally play 5-7 days a week, and i'm up just over 7k last year.

Apparently he gets bonuses given for every deposit. So that will give him some help

Most streamers I watch get a 80% or 100% bonus on EVERY deposit. Many also get lower wagering requirements than us "commoners".

One thing to note, that some streamers are UP (in profit) on stream, but many play offscreen at higher stakes (as is often seen in the YouTube videos where they have insane £1000+ wins) so you never know they could be down overall.

As Nick broadcasts during office hours, I have never seen his stream live but do watch from home in the evenings. I find them very entertaining and admire his style of play.

I presume that popular live streamers also benefit from donations which must give them a better chance of making a profit?

Great point there. Certainly helps when fans give the popular streamers money and not just pocket change.

Streaming, especially for the popular ones, does take a lot of work. It can eventually wear you out as CasinoTwitcher and Fatso haven't been doing streams for months now. I do have suspicions about some streamers but at the end of the day it's just entertainment. Too bad playing slots online for me has been frustration :(

Any popular streamer, especially those playing with bonuses, that accepts donations are greedy scum IMO. Like playing EV+ and earning affiliate income isn't enough.

Regardless of my issues is still in poor taste, there is not anything remotely funny about it

Are any of his desperate attempts at humour and puns, which seem to be compulsory on almost every single thread

I heard from my next door neighbour's former lodger (moved now) that streamers get enhanced RTP and losses refunded in brown envelopes, is this right?
