Why Twitch Banned Gambling Channels?


A streamer named Abraham "itsSliker" Mohammed scammed Twitch users to gamble off-stream. According to the reports, this streamer forged both content creators and fans on Twitch & shammed over $200,000 under the pretense of financial hardship. Though, he did post an apology video, later on where he admitted that he lied to gain more money for offline gambling.


Considering all of these mishappenings that were slowly snowballing on the platform. Twitch took this bold stance over unsanctioned gambling sites in the United States. But many players who either stream gambling games or get sponsorship from companies like Stake, xQc, and Trainwreck, argued over targeting only specific gambling websites & leaving sports betting out of the banning radar.
