ilegal casinos still running and twitch is closing the eyes on their own TOS's..
I have previously submitted reports on over 20+ Portuguese streamers and Iive streams who are engaging in the use of unregulated, illegal casinos in Portugal. Some even demonstrate how to employ a VPN to circumvent country restrictions. Unfortunately, Twitch seems to be disregarding these reports and continues to permit these streamers to promote and participate in these illicit and fraudulent casino activities. It's disheartening.
Apparenty the "trick" to not be banned is not saving the VOD or clips....
Can you guys start applying the TOS's ?..
I don't think unregulated gambling should be allowed on twitch and neither should affiliated gambling. Affiliated gambling codes gives creators a small percentage of what their viewers loose on the gambling website to the creator as a reward for their viewers signing up and loosing money. A lot of streamers don't even use their own money on these websites when gambling live on stream, instead the website loads their account with money and lets them gamble with no finical risk, but at the same time these streamers are telling viewers to use these unregulated gambling website and use their creator codes when depositing their real money on to them. Problem gamblers have the highest suicide rate of any addiction disorder, 1 in 5 problem gamblers attempt suicide. Streamers that gamble live on twitch don't usually have a 18+ stream enabled which means they are broadcasting gambling to minors which can cause early gambling habits to underage viewers. Also these gambling sites don't verify age or identity of users which makes it possible for underage persons to create accounts and illegally gamble while being underage or in a state where gambling is illegal. This is a serious problem as it can lead to addiction, financial problems and eventually suicide for twitch viewers. This is becoming such a large problem on twitch and I really hope twitch will do something about this so less of their underage audience isn't exposed to illegal unregulated gambling.
