A Twitch streamer happened to catch the moment an older couple won $10,000 on slot machines on a live stream.
The streamer, LasVegasVP, typically broadcasts casino content to his 55,000 followers. He was streaming his own slot machine rounds when a couple near him won.
As neighbors exchanged shocked looks at the win and begin discussing the amount, the couple exclaimed in excitement and disbelief.
“It’s $10,000! You guys didn’t know it was $10,000?” the streamer asked.
The streamer explained how the casino’s multiplying system worked to the new winners.
“Every credit is $5. You hit one thousand credits, which is $5,000. And then you got a multiplier x2 times, so that’s $10,000,” he told the couple.
The couple paused to smile at each other and then embraced, eliciting appreciative “aww”s from their neighbors.
Only a few weeks ago, Twitch altered its position on allowing gambling content on its platform after a streamer admitted to scamming tens of thousands of dollars from fans to fund a gambling habit. From October 18 onward, many casinos and sites will ban gambling streams, though there are still many gambling-related accounts on Twitch.
According to a company statement shared to Twitter on September 20, the policy will, in part, “prohibit streaming of gambling sites that include slots, roulette, or dice games that aren’t licensed either in the US or other jurisdictions that provide sufficient consumer protection” though sites that focus on sports betting, fantasy sports, and poker will be allowed.
