It's already here. We can't stream to twitch and Youtube videos must be age gated which stops any growth. 


£2 cap on bets will be the next thing

Craig,

The £2 cap may be no bad thing. It will make the streams more relevant to a lot of viewers and subscribers. I dare say that some streamers will welcome this as there would be no need to try and compete with their competition spinning at £40 per spin. How many streams received viewers just because they were on high stakes? Clearly some streamers would get around this by betting large sums on table games though. The likes of Gabriel Slots play largely within these stakes in any case and still appear to get solid enough viewing figures.

If the streamers who genuinely entertain are placed on a level playing field they may actually benefit overall and the likes of Chipmonkz and Bandit will probably lose viewership despite their current viewer numbers. Bandit appears to have become less interested in recent times and I cannot see how Chipmonkz was ever popular in the first place. He strikes me as a very greedy individual who has cynically milked his viewership for cash using every questionable strategy possible.

Perhaps if the UKGC were to demand that all casinos were required to document all interactions/payments with streamers and exhibit this to UKGC on request. Any faked or subsidised play purported to be real would become a criminal offence. Each stream should be prefaced with a declaration from the streamer to verify whether the stream was subsidised or supported in any way. Any breach of the rule would see sanctions imposed on the streamer and the casino involved.

I think you're right. It certainly wont mean the end and will mix it up a lot! And yeah, would be nice to be a on a level playing field for sure. I'm happy with £2 spins, it will be much better for my bank balance lol!
