Weekend streams

Recommended Posts

I've been watching the latest streams from over the weekend from the usual suspects. Most of them did their bollocks, Bandit especially, he ended up 50k down. For that reason I'm just depositing £20 a day for a bit of fun this week while they're running cold

Just watched bits of the bandits upload and the guy has a serious problem.

No matter how Uber wealthy or how much affiliate cash he’s getting this sort of gambling will eventually lead you to only one place, the bankruptcy court!

Also the day will come when the UK government band this affiliate activity and some of these guys are in so deep and so thoroughly addicted they’ll go through what cash they have very quickly.

Insane levels of gambling on slots, I mean it’s not even a bet where judgement or skill is required like football, horses or even NL poker!

Try to put in context what he just lost regardless of its his money or not or even if he’s faking it.....

A holiday worth 5k every year for 10 years

A Mercedes E Class or a Jaguar XF

20% deposit on a property worth £250,000

4 Triumph Clubman R’s

A full extension for an existing 3/4 bed property 

You get the picture....

These are the guys YouTube should be banning as what’s being promoted is simply dangerous to the average pocket, showing such high stakes (especially when they win) leads to a false impression of potential easy money (I think most on here realise that’s not the case).

Fair play to him for putting up such a loss I guess but it was painful viewing.

I came across the Bandit a few months ago and I have watched quite a few of his uploads since and I must say the mans gambling scares the shit out of me... He comes across as a really intelligent, likable bloke with a very cavalier attitude to money. His last upload a 40K subscriber special was almost 2.5 hrs long and resulted the mind boggling loss Mentholdan mentioned.

The bit(s) that scares me are it all starts off pretty normal but then they seems to go into loss chasing mode, stakes increase, gambles increase and even though he has pulled it back a few times, generally losses increase and all rational seems to go out of the window in the search for a 1 hit saving spin or gamble.

IMHO I don't think you tube should ban him, and that does not mean I agree with what he puts out but it has taught me the futility of chasing losses and hopefully many others, just listen to the emotion in his voice, and the words used at the end of the stream it tells you more about gambling than the stream itself.

Well said King, I hope he reads your post, you talk a lot of sense. He should definitely NOT be banned from you tube though, we're not living in North Korea, 😁😁

Big fan of The Bandits videos but the last one was a tough watch at times, he can obviously afford these big stakes though so fair play to him and he actively discourages people from copying what he does and frankly you’d be silly to try and emulate him, I’ll stick to my regular £1 and £2 stakes. 😂

Blimey, sounds like it's not just me who had a sh*tty weekend!

Wonder how much is actually real cash then? Or do these "high roller" streams have an agreement where they get a % of their losses back?

Does SS do the same with affiliation? Noticed he uses Dream Vegas a lot. Seen him use Paddy Power and he lost it all as far as I remember. Sounds about right going from my experience of PP...!

Darren's content probably covers his costs and a small profit. The bingo hall, bookies, casino and arcade don't generate any revenue directly and he was doing those for a long time before doing online. They all change casino sites because a lot of people have signed up to the established sites already.

The big hype streamers encourage addicts and want large amounts of people to signup for their affiliate links, actively play on the sites for the comps they run as well. I had a 250k win on Reel King in demo mode, which is the same as watching a streamer doing it with money that is meaningless. In the real world you aren't going to be a bit glum losing 50k and carry on doing the same the next week for very long, something doesn't quite add up.

I loved the bandits videos in the past, they where fantastic. He went on a mental run of winning thousands and thousands and when he was losing he just upped the stake and basically won it back. That's why I stopped watching either it wasnt legit, or a massive loss was around the corner.

I always found him enjoyable and a good laugh, I was subbed to him from the early days when he was doing a few pence spins on Bruce Lee etc. But when you see how his channel developed into the massive stake videos, you know how much they must make from affiliation.

I enjoy Darren's channel as it's different a mix of online/arcade slots and bookies. I get a little annoyed when people on YouTube comment that he should just play online. Because then the channel could turn into the same as all the other generic online slot series.

I agree with all of that and The Bandit seems to have gone AWOL this week, licking his wounds perhaps. I've watched all the usual suspects latest streams and videos this weekend and they're all below par. I really felt sorry for Jordan this week in the Chipmonkz slot battle, after it was all over he really looked like he wished he hadn't of won when Chip spat the dummy out.

Chip obviously ain't enjoying it too much. Said he has to do it but he really doesn't. He can take a day or two off if it is what he needs

Its only Monday morning... The Bandit may still be online fighting to get back on top

I think people misunderstood my post. I’m not asking for him to be banned but I do think as the government tightens the screw on online gambling and gambling advertising that these sort of streams/uploads will come into the cross hairs of regulators and they will be banned.

Yes S&S will get affiliate cash from sign ups through those who use the links on his site.

These are affiliate links to the casinos, but I never actively ask people to use them. Since I started this channel, I've never asked anyone to deposit at any casinos, and all contests have always been free to enter, no tickets or anything like that. 

The casino links are there if people want to use them, but it's entirely optional and will not effect or change anything whether you use them or not. Contests and content will always be free to use here.
