    I would had to Nyaxxy_'s comment bellow that Twitch is showing some level of commitment to support mental health and trying to put ahead strong ToS to avoid bad actors hurting mental health and overall the "safe space" it's looking to create by being inclusive.

    While being severe on racism, sexism, any self-harm, Gambling with a tag 18+ is insufficient to mitigate the actual risks.

    There's ton of actual legit research expressing how:
    - addiction to gambling starts
    - what it triggers
    - how it impacts your life
    - how it's a major cause for depression and suicides.

    The ToS leaves gambling open but also should be taking more drastic approaches to removes itself from the paradigm of the risk of gambling.

    A virtual Casino increase the amount of time you gamble versus a physical one.
    A Virtual Casino removes the need for banking by getting crypto wallets. In the Casino you have to get there, get IDED, transfer money into chips. There's a significant amount of added layers needed to "commit yourself" into gambling.

    A Virtual Casino can cancel your account without an actual clear explanation making at risk younger under 21 yo use vulnerable to losing their actual kitty (money with the Casino).

    I agree, removing from the search list the Slots (Gambling) and not advertising it will make it so that it's only limited to the streamer community.
    On a mid-april stream, XQC did a poll to establish the age of the community and about 35% where 18 and less (around 15% underage) and majority (over 50%) under 22 yo. Considering his influence (sometime streaming to up to 1% of the actual total platform) is of major concerns knowing actual real stats on how gambling influence strarts, who's more vulnerable and how it impacts their life.

    If Twitch support this content and even 1-2 kids gets their first dose of gambling addiction following a major Partner. It's bad for the image of Twitch.

    Booze stream has tons of rules and regulation and more importantly, Twitch TOS are severe enough to have some control over how it's advertised. E.i: Getting drunk and even flirting with some level of self-harm results in ban!

    Gambling has none of that structure and there is actual comparison to addiction similar to drugs and alcohol.
