Aside from the aforementioned Jackpot Gents, few do a true accounting of their costs in playing.

At the beginning of 2023, Lady Luck HQ posted her year-end win/loss report. I saved it somewhere, but can't find it now. She's down thousands, likely tens of thousands. Apologies for not quoting the actual numbers. But I found it admirable that she disclosed her loss.

does that include her income from her YouTube channel?

Here's her 2021 win/loss statement, but not surprisingly, no YouTube income mentioned: https://youtu.be/DjqcnSZrNeA?t=568

I hope they're rolling in YouTube dough because they're not from slots!

I gotta think that many people go into slot streaming for the same reason some go into AP: they love to gamble and want to get something "extra" out of it.

It seems that very few can make a good living from it, and most flame out.

Oops.

There are many Vegas travel youtubers who turned to slot channels. I think they did it because making relevant content is a lot of work, and there's only so much they can cover for Vegas. Everything has been tried, reported, and put on youtube. The slot segments are easy, lazy, and something different every time. They're just trying to get views so that they can make money from youtube.

They almost certainly have to be getting free play and using that or somthing, because it's hard to imagine they are only losing about 6.5% on slots.

Assuming they dont pay for clicks or have a significant production cost
according to one of her previous videos, they are making around 300k a year.

I like that she said, "unless they hit somthing super big they will always have a losing year on the slots."

I know the Jackpot Gents had to find another source of revenue after the American Casino Guide shut down. They had 150,000+ subscribers painfully accumulated over the years for their educational videos and millions of views, but when you stop producing content your videos don't get as high placement so decided to monetize that asset and go into daily video poker play and live streams. They are maybe getting one tenth the views of Brian Christopher, but despite playing 98% video poker probably break even on ad revenue, and get free play from a Dania casino that wants to remain relevant in a market dominated by the Seminoles.

Of all coin in with some of the action being high-limit slots?

Also, the W/L report has a line item for, "Coin-out," so I agree on the Free Play which would eventually translate to, "Coin-Out," in many of these cases.

If I had to guess, ignoring Free Play, the loss is probably 8-10% of all coin in.

That article is--pardon my french--a load of humbug. The "own money" part is playing very loose with language.

Brian "Brian Christopher" Mifsud has admitted to being paid to play in some video with where he was discussing casino marketing (that fat guy from new jersey that tracks youtube slots drama showed it). He mentioned that casinos track his players' coin in, which justifies his appearance fee. Mifsud is selling cruises so he is at least getting an affiliate fee there as well. His videos list the casino as "partner", which is not sufficient according to the 'tube or the ftc when it comes to paid ads, but more than the majority of other "influencers" are doing. Other players are featured on casino websites and tell viewers to mention their name when signing up for a rewards card. They are clearly getting a finder's fee.

Casinos may not be handing these players a load of chips when they walk through the door, but the big names are being compensated to make content from these casinos and they are not disclosing this fact. Any channel that is somewhat big and claims not to be getting paid is either dumb or lying.

I am not against people getting paid to promote a casino, but this should be very clear as they are telling people to visit these properties. Everything is amazing in an advertisement.

The specific question that needs to be asked of these influencers and casinos is whether or not influencers are being compensated to make videos. If the answer is yes, the next question is why is this not being disclosed.

There is more money in slots than casino buffet reviews. Not that huge channels can dump out three videos per day and get 100k views on each. Very little work for a large potential reward if you can get noticed over the competition.

Jackpot Gents

How much would it cost to buy a slot filled with various modern games to play HIGH limit in my basement ($25+/spin)?
Getting all those views at 0% loss = I want to copy :)

What costs and effort goes into getting views? I don't imagine it's as simple as...If you build it, they will come. Initially, I would think you would have to find a way to get them to your channel.

Perhaps I'm wrong and YouTube does a good job suggesting your video to the right people, I haven't any idea how all that works.
