Slot RTP/Streamer question

So theres a few sites out there heavily sponsoring players with unlimited funds to play high limit slots on twitch. Apparently the catch is they get to keep a small percentage if they are able to run the balance up above a certain amount. But who really knows if the streamer tells the truth. Obv so much shadiness going on behind the scenes with some casinos.

As you can imagine with this kind of deal it displays a lot of reckless gambling to the viewers because if the streamer busts he just gets another refill. It's a disgusting display of sites promoting reckless gambling through their sponsored streamers. Anyways thats a whole topic for another day and one thats already been played out before.

So what I'm wondering is this...I've seen some of these streamers hit massive pays upwards of 100k on slots like money train 2. So the casino never has to pay out the full amount of the win because its their money so how does this effect the RTP to other players that are using their real funds to play? Are they just screwed because some guy playing on house money hit for a 6 figure jackpot now the slots going to go into rip mode to recoup? Is it network wide or site specific the players that will end up paying for that big win that wasnt truly paid out?

This seems shady as hell whats going on and I can only imagine seeing more sites putting up the bankrolls for streamers to lure players in. So do the casinos just pay providers like Pragmatic/Relax/No Limit etc a flat fee to be able to access their games? If they had to pay a cut of losses surely they wouldnt be bankrolling streamers hundreds of Ks each month to play their slots. IDK maybe these streamers arent even logging into normal servers given the ones I've watched seem to have RTPS over 100%.

So to summarize maybe someone can help me understand how the RTPs work when fake money streamers are hitting huge jackpots on slots. Do we the regular player get shafted as a result. Really interested in what the answers are.

If they are winning actual jackpots normal players who play those games would be screwed over.
Just hitting big wins does not affect the rtp for anyone.

Me hitting 100k on doa2 does not make it any less likely for you to hit 100k on doa2.

True dat as it's about everyone's overall play against what it's designed to pay out theoretically...that way you never know what a game is going to do

Yeah, atleast thats how its supposed to work.
Not a very transparent business, so who knows what really goes on in the background.

Can we stop giving streamers publicity around here, please?

Sure, I guess my questions could relate to any average Joe hitting a 6 figure pay on a slot and how it changes the rtp for everyone else playing...but last time I checked I only see streamers hitting these kinds of wins. On top of that on fake casino sponsored money so they dont even have to pay out the win.

I don't buy for a minute peoples responses that it won't affect me playing the same game if someone is on casino money pulling out a 5000+x win on a 20 dollar bet. etc. That game can't just keep spitting out ridiculous wins or it wouldn't allign with the hold % on that slot. I believe years ago when things were more transparent and honest.
