Famous streamer xQc has made a bold claim that fellow streamers who were offered low-end gambling promotion deals were the same ones to publicly criticize Twitch for allowing gambling streams.
The Controversy of Gambling on Twitch
Gambling on Twitch has been a hotly contested issue. Some streamers migrated to competitors like Kick, where they could engage in gambling with fewer restrictions.
During the height of Twitch’s sponsored gambling streams, xQc was a notable figure, regularly attracting thousands of viewers to his sessions at the virtual slot machines.
His criticisms of Twitch’s rules on gambling streams have been ongoing, exacerbated by the platform’s ban on such content.
xQc’s Move to Kick and His Allegations
With xQc’s recent affiliation with Stake-owned streaming platform Kick, he has begun to voice severe criticism of Twitch and its streamers regarding their attitudes towards gambling promotions.
In a recent broadcast on Twitch, xQc delved into his early adoption of Kick.
He explained to his viewers his decision to fully commit, contrasting his approach to the late adoption tactics of other streamers who were early critics of Kick.
In this commentary, xQc made the contentious claim that these critics were also seeking offers for gambling streams on Twitch.
Without identifying specific individuals, he suggested that when these streamers were undercut on these deals, they protested gambling streams on the Amazon-owned platform.
xQc’s Concluding Remarks
“The same people, as in back in the [gambling] days way back when, asked for the same deals, I saw all the logs all of them, they were like “oh dude can I get this? Can I get that?” and they didn’t get the same deal as the [streamers] above them.
So they all went “Oh my god”, the next day, 12 hours later, ‘gambling is disgusting I can’t believe they do that,’” xQc alleged.
The outspoken streamer concluded his diatribe by saying, “It’s the same people that did that in the gambling days that now do that with the Kick s***, and it’s f***ing insane. I just don’t understand how that’s such a standardized behavior.”
However, without any specific names mentioned, these accusations remain unsubstantiated. Viewers are urged to approach xQc’s claims cautiously, given the absence of concrete evidence to support such fervent allegations.
