I never fathomed there would be a market and money to be made making videos of yourself playing slots. It's mind boggling to me that there people out there who enjoy watching others play slots.



I'm guessing the younger pretty girls make more than the old men doing that sort of thing.

If you can attract a big enough audience, I think it qualifies someone as an "influencer" which is a potential for advertisers to either run ads on the channel or even send products to be pimped for them.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

If I remember correctly she really didn't contribute other than posting links to her videos.



Completely agree, it's more like pretty girls aren't usually intelligent enough to last on WoV. Seriously this forum is ruthless, I like it & hate it at the same time. I think we should completely exile people like her because she obviously didn't belong on the forum but I don't want to be the person to do it. That being said, we shouldn't be hostile to people that clearly do belong on this forum ;)

You've hit the nail on the head. Oddly, many female-run slot channels have chosen not to go the influencer route. So the landscape looks like females>men, but influencers>others. There's also a weird merchandise angle & some of the men have what are arguably more marketable catch-phrases (like NG Slots and his "show me the power of your bonus!").

Brian Christopher (BC Slots) is pretty comfortably the highest-earning slot channel. He shills for online casinos, for the casinos he's filming in, for his editing software company... He's one of a small few who actually do have net income from the endeavor.

My guess is that Sarah would have contributed here if she hadn't been run out so fast. She's also really smart. Maybe not USPG smart, I guess.
She seems willing to answer questions about how to get/use a host, how to optimize travel perks and miles, etc. on her social media channels - those are all things that come up here a few times a year when someone questions how much they should be getting or how much play they would need to show to be comped.

It's funny how different channels approach trips and filming. NG, Slotlady, MG all take big trips, play for hours, and edit to make it look like there are different "episodes" (i.e. NG's monthly series of daily videos are filmed on the same weekend). Those folks travel to play, so one big trip with a high ADT is value maximizing and they know it. Others like SDguy and Vegas Low Roller take separate trips and film them all, then delay release until editing can be done. VLR is a vegas local & SDGuy is a self-professed degenerate so they don't seem to care as much about daily play numbers.

I watch/listen to a lot of these videos. For me, they're good background noise. It's like "watching" golf or baseball - just do what you would have done & look up when someone yells.

I'm really a huge fan of all the different slot machines but I can't play them. I really appreciate a knowledgeable slotter filming these videos. The machines don't last forever and time will sweep them into the dust bin eventually. Also I can't sit down at table games where the table minimum is $25, so it's informative to me to watch that table action. Keep it up Slotlady!

I believe it's the exact opposite & that she was run off because of the fact that she had such little to contribute + the fact that she only created her account as a publicity stunt to advertise her channel to begin with 🤮

She also frequently shouts out WoO on her live streams when she’s playing UTH and someone asks why she raised 4x.

I think it should be duly noted that I'm not saying anything bad about her channel, even though it's so far away from what I would consider enjoyable to watch. I think she definitely wasn't cut out to be a WoV member, & yes a lot of it has to do with how hostile the forum is. I don't think your average person could survive being here without being highly intelligent & knowledgeable about the casino industry. I believe if I wasn't into game design or mathematics I would be struggling to withstand the pressures of the harassment from other WoV members even if my intelligence hadn't changed!!!

Said the guy touting his slot machine all day long (-:.


Whatever the case, I don't mind of people want to do a little advertising, just be upfront about it, don't be all sneaky about it as if we are dumb and don't know what they are doing.
