Online tipsters giving bad tips/ only slowing winning slots for commission

Tons of very dubious stuff going on here, but I picked it out because of this bit...

Such tipsters, who work from home, frequently recommend accumulator bets that experts say represent bad value, and entice their followers by posting fake graphics of their wins.

Others will play high stakes slots all day on a livestream before cherry picking their wins and posting the videos on YouTube. These will be accompanied by affiliate links which do not disclose that the tipsters stand to win from any losses incurred by those who sign up.

The YouTube videos of the wins garner far more views than those of the livestreams, which often feature repeated losses. However, because of the success they have in encouraging people to sign up, they can afford to take the losses.

An ex-employee of a gambling company said: “I’ve watched the YouTube affiliates, they are definitely in the red [on their on-screen bets].”

Ed.

"due to some complications withdrawing 38.5k got reversed and lost"

Pocket money!

Does make you wonder where he will go now though considering he has hit this dream £100k target he had!

Could get quite a good following just doing medium stake slots, was funny yesterday when he did a random stream around the same as Nickslots and had 1,000 more viewers! lolol (He was only doing £2 - £10 sort of stakes too!)

given that I have problems even getting a few hundred off some operators, not surprised at problems with big withdrawals.

works with degens allowing it to be reversed, makes business sense thats for sure.

done it many times myself, still do it now... ffs

What makes me laugh are the streamers that act like they are their viewers' best friends, when they don't have their best interests at heart and need them to all lose lose lose on their affiliate links. Never signed up to a streamer's link and I never will.

sure sign up direct and your going to get better promotions than through affiliates.

the pooled prizes are nice if you get one, but most people won't.

signing up through the affiliates makes sense if your going to meet the min requirements, play through once, withdraw. Treating any giveaway win as a bonus.

how many %'s do you think the no-paid withdrawals increase the house-edge by? I'd reckon maybe 10% extra house edge on the no-paid wins

Ive never heard of a casino not paying out (causing problems yeah).

As it is all logged just like the spins which just pickup from where you left off if theres an error.

Bonus funds are a different story.

Id much rather trust a casino paying out than an arcade/servos/pub, etc.
