I'm not into gossiping or spreading rumors about people, especially about streamers. I've got better things to do. However, Chip has recently been heavily pushing Jungle spins, both via stream and his website. What he fails to mention is that this particular casino will only let you withdraw 5X your deposit if you take a bonus. 

On his website where he reviews this casino he states that here is no max cashout, he also includes the small print and bonus terms for this casino on his website, this information is not included there either. 

I have asked Chip about this through various channels, including on stream and my question is always ignored. 

I understand that I may get a bit of backlash for this comment, or that it may even be removed but I'm not doing this to slander anyone, I'm just highlighting a casino with extremely bad terms and conditions that is being heavily advertised by a popular affiliate. It's not just bitching when peoples money is involved. 

It would not be bad if Chip clearly stated this on his website, instead of saying there are no maximum withdrawal limits. 

Fair play to Jimbo and Craig, I have always used their links if I'm not already signed up to the casino and have never had a problem!

Why would you get backlash or removed. Call it how you see it and it is a good warning to others who may sign up through him.

The guy has turned into a degenerate. He began chasing bigger and bigger wins, wasn't happy playing lower stakes any more, playing lots off line and looking miserable unless something big happened. Used to watch him daily then saw the change and signs. I've been gambling for 20+ years, I know the signs, been there before and its hard not to slip back. Wouldn't be so bad if he owned it and didn't try to hide it.

He's there for the money and the money only. Money keeps the business afloat but keeps his expensive habit going. He's destroyed his channel but continues to have his loyal fanbase of people who watch live in a morning who must have cozy jobs being able to do that or no job. He will rarely answer questions, he may pop on a forum like this but doesn't give satisfactory answers. He's not obliged to though. 

I chose to stop watching, up to him what he does but yes, he should be very transparent as not everyone reads T&C's (even though you should). To be clear, if Jimbo and Craig started acting like Chip, I'd be off.

THIS. All we want is transparency and I believe that it's the only thing we are owed by content creators, especially gambling related content. He needs calling out for it by people with influence, which Jimbo has done on twitter previously (different site) this post doesn't break any t&c so zero reason why anyone would remove the post.

I think it is probably trying to balance this post up a little however I would preface this response by making it clear that I am in no way a fan of Chipmonkz.

A lot of streamers graduate from lower or affordable stakes to eye watering stakes within a relatively short period of time  especially if the stream can be partially, or even fully, funded by affiliate income. Chipmonkz in that respect is no different. It is not that long ago that Craig was purchasing Extra Chilli bonuses at £1,000 and Bandit has been known to spin at £40 a spin before huge wins or losses.

Whether he thought he needed bigger wins for his channel or it is underpinned by a gambling addiction or a mixture of both is pure conjecture although weemonk's observations are based upon personal experience and the behaviour patterns of gamblers who have lost control are telegraphed to others who can recognise these patterns only too well.

Has he destroyed his channel? I am not sure and enough people continue to support him and he must have built up quite a reasonable level of recurring revenue from his existing players. The content is poor and that's easy to see however it was measured against a low bar and was never of any quality in the first place. No amount of gimmicks are able to make up for the fact that he is a character that very few people think is remotely entertaining and many others find an irritating bore. The addition of his younger sidekick and his supposed girlfriend who he supposedly met on the stream is just contrived nonsense. The fact is the whole thing is just contrived, almost uniformally formulaic and totally incredulous  and this just shows that he has neither the intelligence nor the personality to change it or he simply does not care any longer. I'd argue the latter.

His attempts to justify his actions are perfunctory at best and his inability to deal with reasonably valid questions and comments speaks volumes about his lack of character. He will earn from his subscribers but not even remotely try and defend his actions other that infantile whingeing on his stream. The bottom line is that he is in it for the cash and this is evidenced by by the fact that he gives away to his subscribers almost entirely nothing and the begging for likes and subscribers is beyond pitiful. Allied to this he promotes every casino possible and floods YouTube with a stream of really poor quality clips promoting probably some of, if not, the worst online offerings in the UK. He has no shame and in my view he will break every rule possible before exiting as this is his job and not a sideline.

My view is that he is in it for the money and that his whole persona is bent out of a shape because he probably has more haters than all of the respectable streamers put together so he now regards all viewers the same and is just collecting as much cash as possible whilst the opportunity still exists. He has no likeability factor and his reputation is never going to improve anyway.

Is he in the same bracket as Roshtein or Ayezee?  In my view he's probably worse as they are so bad that anyone with half a brain sees through them whilst Chipmonkz targets the folks too dim to realise what he is but pretending to be something other than he is. Who else would put out three or four videos a day promoting crappy Aspire brands that no other streamer would touch and achieve so many winning sessions. Presumably Aspire let him create as many videos as he wants but limit him to a fixed payout so that he never actually loses for reeling in customers to these crappy brands.

interesting thread. however just checked his link and the max conversion of the bonus funds is 20x, not 5x...not something we would do here but for the sake of being fair I thought it was worth mentioning.


and we would never remove a thread where a fair debate is taking place, we rarely get aggressive trolls here. 😁

I figured it out, his link leads me to the .com site as I'm based in Ireland and people in the UK get taken to the .co.uk site, there must be slightly different terms between the two. 

Still though, many of the casinos he promotes have a 4x conversion, awesome spins is one which I never highlighted as it does clearly say in the small print on his link to be fair. 

Still though, he writes reviews on each casino he advertises and he always leaves out the negatives, if you were going to go though the effort of writing a review and say they have no max cashout etc, you'd think you'd include the fact that they have max conversion on the bonuses, or the fact that the wagering only starts in bonus funds but you have to wager bonus + deposit amount times 40+.

I just find the lack of transparency and sugar coating the brands he works with to be really poor taste. In my opinion he's a bit like the dodgy car salesman of casino affiliates and people should be aware that it's a good idea to heavily vet any casino advertised by him. 

Like I said before, Keep up the good work Jimbo. I'd say the same to Craig but he has hasn't posted a video in a few weeks now  😋(I Joke)

On backinamo chipmonkz had answered some questions about this in a topic. And in my eyes, it came down to this;


He does push those casino's because those casino's are the ones that can still make him money. The 'popular' ones are already affiliated way to much so not much money to earn. Basicly this means he will push a casino with terms that are negative and totaly unfair for the players that sign up but if he can make more money that way, he doesn't give a shit.


Used to like him. Now he just glamorizes gambling and doesn't care about anything else but the money.
