Slot machines have a forever history in gambling. I've only spent two days on here about him, and my blog entry is no different than the start of this thread.
So you never wanna see youtube links anymore? I wasn't aware. I watch a lot of YouTube. If I was spamming, I'd probably fill a thread with a thousand posts. If people want to see the hundreds of posts that slot guy put on YouTube, you'll get lost just looking at thumbnails on his channel. I just wanted to point out a handful of interesting videos that he made, that I've seen, and I probably haven't seen more than what I've posted.

I've watched about a dozen hours of raja's stream now, and he's not making money on slots. He's making money from premium charges to his club members, and his YouTube ads every 10-15 minutes. He may even be getting some compensation from the casinos he plays, since he brings a crowd, and tells people where he's playing.

He's also not making money on slots because he's not doing anything special. He's just playing some huge denominations and taking his chances like everyone else.

If you want to see a big jackpot, take a look at these guys. Apparently a competing slots stream. Playing $900/spin.

If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

You can almost bet he is making money somehow via the casinos rebating him. On the other hand, he is the spam king, he can afford straight losses. Against that point, he wouldn't need to travel to blow money away to get attention. I would not waste my time watching a commercial because that's all it is. I agree he has no place here.

I've got AdBlock Plus on my browser so I never see those annoying YouTube ads unless my browser crashes.

The Big Jackpot guy does have a slot app he tries to show off. If anybody wants to download that and play slots on their phone, it seems like a slots-related deal. I haven't downloaded it yet because I can't see myself betting billions of credits a spin except in Weimar Germany, which may be coming again sooner than I know, so maybe I should learn.

Playing slot machines themselves is not a commercial. It's a rare peak into the previously closed-off world of casinos. Smartphones are changing what videos are available, and permissions in the casinos seem to be getting more lax as time goes on. I remember a sign on a casino door in 1995 that said "No cell phones!"

How the slot guy makes his money. Pointing out that he gets money from YouTube may ring kind of hollow since the YouTube Adpocalypse a couple years ago. Casinos rebating the slot king? He's getting a slew of points on his card so that could pay room & board for him & his entourage on a daily basis. The slot king probably doesn't record all of his slot play for online use, and he could be independently wealthy from slot play or anything else by this time.

People getting so lost in his motivations forget the joy of watching someone trying to beat the machines.

What joy should I be experiencing watching a video of a stranger trying to beat a slot machine? I'm not sure who I am rooting for, the man or the machine?

Unless I know the person I am always rooting for the casino.

Playing slots ... Boring.
Watching someone play slots ... Boringer.*
Reading about watching someone play slots ... Boringest.**

Now... Watching an affiliate marketer and App promoter pulling in the crowds and getting good value for his ad-spend ... I can appreciate that business lesson.


*, **, Yes I know it's not proper English, but it so should be.

Hi Babs,
Not so impressive when he informs us that he owns the machine, has access to configure it and all of the streamed play is in 'free play' mode

'more' the notes on this vid, if you need evidence.

Well, there ya go, then. I was watching without sound after a couple minutes and missed any reference to that. Pity.
