With all of these youtubers we dont know what they get from the casinos.

Some talk about free play.

Slotlady has never mentioned free play, have they?

Do they play free play on the side and use that revenue?

Do they get rebates?

She once said she pays for her hotel but that was several years ago. Does the casino give RFB?

I can't believe they are strictly cash customers.

I haven't a clue if she's mentioned it or not, I have probably only watched a total of 45 minutes of her playing. From my understanding, most of them are a little cagey when it comes to that stuff(she seems more so than others) and what they are actually making. The losers tend to claim they are winners and the people raking it in tend to claim the opposite.

I would assume they get RFB some free play/ rebate stuff.

I also assume room upgrades beyond the usual, in exchange for doing a room show & tell on a popular channel.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Let's be practical for a minute. They do at least one live stream a day and the buyins for the live streams range from $800 to $2500... and this past week there was a $5000 buy in which was followed by another live stream for "members only."

Is it safe to say the average is $1500 per session, 7 days a week?

That's $10,500 of buy ins a week that WE know about.

Vic has talked about additional play that's not for YouTube.

I think conservatively they are a minimum $15k a week players.

Let's discuss what $15k a week players would get at El Cortez?

I've never stayed there so I dont know their RFB or comp policies but I'm inclined to think they must get plenty JUST WITH THEIR ACTION and without considering the YouTube and now Facebook exposure.

On one of the TV stations here in Vegas they did a news story on them and an exec from El Cortez openly said they were attracting customers.

It wouldn't surprise me if in addition to full RFB that they were getting rebates plus promotional money plus free play ON TOP of their YouTube money.

If not they are burning thru three-quarters of a million a year which I think is very unlikely.

They might even be on salary now, though she denied that about two years ago -- but that was before the heavy play with Vic started.

And with Vic at the forefront I wouldn't be surprised by any deal that got made. He's no dummy.

Keep in mind that they live in Vegas now, and have no need for a room.

if she's rarely on anymore, how much is the drop in viewership?

Why rent an apartment when you can get RFB?

I recall her saying that she did not have a car and was living at the hotel and she has a condo in Canada.

Nothing wrong with that kind of living arrangement when you have a casino based business.

They are definitely not living in a hotel. Even before she moved to Vegas, she stayed in VRBOs and not hotel rooms when in town for extended periods, even though she could have had free nights for as long as she was in town.

"All the people being negative in the chat are just jealous they can't afford to gamble this much"

Does he always talk like this? Income-shaming people is really low.
