Coeur D’Alene Casino in California Live.
The casino has social distancing so the machines are wide apart. Everyone wearing face masks. That's good news. Everyone having fun.
TeamClareVlogs, Matt Bridger, Ben Heath and Nicky Furmage have excellent Vegas vlogs, they are all good as they are more than just slot channels.
I like watching DianaEvoni as she isn’t just all about selling T-shirts. East Coast Slots too, man that guy is Degen, his most recent Vegas trip was horrific in terms of losses!
Does anyone know what happened to Y&I Slots of Fun? They haven't posted in a long time.
They split up. I did a search and Yuri has a YT channel under her name Yuri Ramirez, but it is not slots. Looks like she has gotten the gym bug (pre-Covid) and is super fit. Good for her.
I watch.... fast forward to bonuses
And the some hosts that pop up with big wins... eg NG
I'm old. More than a little bewildered by people being influencers for money.... through attention seeking.
SLOTaholic is a newer one that I really enjoy. He is based in NOLA, but travels fairly often (Reno, Vegas).
I like watching them from time to time as well, but I still can’t believe people actually donate money to watch someone else play a slot.
Put it towards a dinner date with your spouse. Surprise your kid with an ice cream treat. Donate it to a pet shelter. Save it for your own next casino trip. Hell, I’m going to Vegas next weekend, forward all monies to @TriggerMN!
+1 for Matt Bridger. ALL of his content is really well done.
I saw The Big Jackpot guy filming at Caesars last week - also saw Pure Aggression of The Trooper channel fame playing some Black Sabbath on his guitar on one of the bridges...
Recently started watching the Alice in Casinoland stuff after meeting our very own @Astribling! Check it out!
I'm always curious about the back stories of these folks.... how do some of them afford this expensive hobby? I read that the Big Jackpot guy is some junk mail king so he has money, I can guess someone like Diana Evoni could be retired or her husband is and they are well off and she has herself a nice hobby. Brian Christopher seems to have built a good following and may make a few bucks on merchandise. But there are some who play a lot and we might see the big hits but we all know playing a lot really means losing a lot, especially the ones who are young. I remember watching early videos back in '14 of Vegas Low Roller, I liked his stuff because he would bet like 50 cents a spin and get excited over any win (like I do!) - but with him as with many the stakes slowly rise.... just my curious nature - some smart documentary film maker has a great subject here....
I stopped watching Vegas Low Roller when he started getting political.
Lady Luck HQ posted a video on her page (search "monetize") that gives an insight as to what these people are making. She used one of her videos that went semi-viral (2 million views) and showed she made $9k on it.
Brian Christopher routinely puts up videos that hit 250k views, with some reaching 1M and beyond. Same with Slotlady (who has said in her chats that she's a full-time youtuber with no "real world" job).
SDGuy is a little bit lower since he's pretty polarizing for some.
Then you have the patreon memberships, merchandise sales, and so on.
Logn story short, most of these people started out "like you and me" but once channels grew, their revenue grew, which allowed their bet sizes to grow, which allowed them to generate more video views, etc. For most of them, you can go back in time and look at their old videos and see they're betting $.80 and $1.20 and such. Now they're losing $1000 in 20 minutes and not even mad about it.
NG slot is here. Show me the power of your bonus.
I stopped watching him when he wasn't low rolling anymore.
Think of all the merch being sold to fans... "Rudies", anyone? That where the money is, though YouTube clicks are still decent. Even the most popular YouTube slot channel doesn't have that many subscribers compared to other "hot" topics.
Biggest whiner and slot beggar.......vegas lowroller. Vulgarity....that's easy SD GUY. I occasionally watch both, with no sound. Matt is great. I love Brian and Diana. Clair is great too. NJ Slots is good.
interesting - but in the end any revenue goes into a hobby that loses money! and since most of these players max bet that means they lose it fairly quick... some share the losing sessions but many just show the wins. Going from a mostly table player to a mostly slot player I can't see myself doing it anymore than the 3-4 times I visit Vegas each year (I got plenty of locals near me - they ain't Vegas!!!). Some of these channels are enjoyable to watch when I'm getting pumped up for a trip but I can't help but think sometimes I'm watching someone slowly destruct (gambling does have it's dangers!)
and one more thing - these folks are adults and can do whatever they want with their dough - just my usual curiosity about the ways of the world!!
I was going to say the same thing. Slot Museum(Paylines) is pathetic.
Will NEVER watch BC. Totally fake. He makes deals with the Casinos - charges an appearance fee and they give him $$ to gamble with - not even gambling with his own money. If you want an interesting read. Google Brian Christopher and hand sanitizer LOL. In the beginning of the Pandemic, he bought hard to find hand sanitizer, slapped is name on it, and was selling it at what he said was "cost" ($4 for 2 oz.). Such an ass hat.
