Streamers React Twitch Ban of Unlicensed Gambling Content

Streamers React Twitch Ban of Unlicensed Gambling Content

Twitch has become a live streaming platform for gamblers and online gambling companies. PokerStars, the WSOP, and the WPT have been using Twitch for five years. Twitch banned unlicensed gambling content on Tuesday.

Streamers react to Twitch ban of unlicensed gambling content. The new restrictions will mainly focus on un licensed casinos. Twitch reserves the right to ban streamers promoting poker rooms, sportsbooks, and fantasy sports betting sites that aren't licensed in at least one recognized jurisdiction. BigJoeShow, SupaCoop30, Joe Hassert and Supashef are confused as to why Twitch wouldn't ban all gambling.

Streamers are not allowed to promote unlicensed gambling content on Twitch. Gambling.com works only with legal online sportsbooks, casinos and online poker sites. Gaming expert Pierre Lindh called the news "bad" for major streamers, but "good news for legitimate ones".

Kim Dotcom is a prominent figure in the online world. He has been lobbying against unregulated gambling content on Twitch. Kim Dotch believes the ban is better late than never. Twitch allows streamers to promote licensed gambling sites.  PokerStars, 888 and BetMGM Poker use geolocation and identity checks to ensure customers are in a regulated region and old enough to play.
