Thread: Youtube Slot Community

    Youtube Slot Community

    The Youtube slot community has many shady creators who prey on a demographic that views slot machines as "Easy Money" and have a weird parasocial relationship that treats the audience as a piggy bank. A surprising amount of personalities that are "professional slot youtubers" are incredibly unethical and would of been shunned in any other avenue for their antics. This thread was inspired by Cheetos Bacarrat doing a rather lazy attempt on exposing youtube slot vloggers as scammers. I'm not here to clown on the guy, but his videos managed to get deluded acolytes of these channels berserk for stating obvious facts(no one wins all the time, they're getting paid by the casino, ). This inspired me to detail some of the shadier stuff that happened that I found. Please chime in if you know more:

    The Big Fish

    Brian Christopher - Brian Mifsud

    Brian Christopher is a former struggling actor that hit it big filming himself play slots. He's a narcissistic charismatic individual who films himself playing slots. He's managed to accumulate 290,000 youtube subs making him the self-titled "#1 slot youtuber". He's managed to monetize recording slots enough to make this his fulltime job. This thread was not made to detail this man's achievements but to note some of his behavior. Back in March 2020, Brian Christopher told his fans that he managed to get some hand sanitizer with a BC slots logo at "cost" for 2 ounces at $2.99 plus shipping. This was during the Hand Sanitizer shortage, so you would think this was altruistic for his loyal "rudies" - that's his term of endearment for his fanbase, but you could find cheaper santizer in bulk on the internet for about $1 according to this video.





    Brian Christopher was using a global pandemic and the shortage associated with it to pretend to be altruistic while charging triple the price that you could get them online.

    Thankfully to his deluded fanbase, the hand sanitizer was not able to be procured, but he posted about his gambling cruise in March that was slated for October for his Rudies to go on. The same cruise where he gets a kickback from all the gambling going on by the company hosting the cruise. Presumably the cruise won't happen, but it shows that Brian Christopher views his loyal audience as suckers to extract money from.

    Another shady thing that Brian did was during early May, he flew from LA to Spokane Washington, and drove to a Native American casino without quarantining at all to film content for his youtube channel. This was during the time that the Cali/Nevada casinos were closed and he was running out of slot content. He broke multiple laws to enrich himself and even said that this was "business", so it was ok for him to do that.



    This isn't the complete list of Brian's shadiness, but I will update this thread when I find more.

    Another person that's a big fish in the youtube slot creator community is Sarah - Slotlady:



    She's an above-average woman in both intellect and looks who realized that she could subsidize her real life vice by making youtube her genuine career. I'm not knocking her for that... as she actually seems enthused when playing unlike BC who does an excited schtick 90% of the time. My issue with Slotlady is the fact that she will say one thing, and do another completely. Cheeto's Baccarat in his long-winded video noted that she's most likely being paid or getting compensation from casino's.



    Slotlady denies that vehemently, but if you go to her OWN website, she has online casino promo codes with her name on it. I don't think online casino's give those out for charity. Here is proof:



    Her patreon talks about getting a promotional offer from El Cortez that sounds like she's getting something from the back-end:
    patreon.com/slotlady




    She tries to act cool and calm, but she wasn't too happy about Cheeto's video. So she instructed people to report it to youtube, even if the video is incredibly mild.



    My other issue with both Chris and Slotlady is the fact that their youtube tags are incredibly deceptive and manipulative. Quite frankly, if this industry on youtube was regulated, they would be in a ton of trouble. No respectable person would put these terms in a tag but Slotlady did. Some of the terms include, "Fast Money", "Law of Attraction"(bullshit belief that if you WISH for something, it will come), "Quick Money", "Easy Money" , "Rich Youtuber", "Richest Youtuber", "Gambling system", "increase luck" and those are on RECENT videos. She started her career off with even WORSE tags like " Winning Fast Money", " How to win at the casino"(on a BRANDED licensed slot machine)," Making Money Quickly".

    Both Slotlady and Brian's tags with their video's are dangerous because they rarely show losing sessions(maybe 15% of the time AT MOST). Cementing into the head of impressionable people that, "Hey I can play professionally too", not realizing that these videos are heavily curated produced advertisements. The average viewer not realizing the vicarious dopamine hit they're getting from joining this weird para-social relationship is not of a genuine enthusiast, but as a way to earn a living and extract funds from lonely/desperate/deluded people. These "slot youtubers" are both not as nice and affable when the camera's are off from MULTIPLE sources, ESPECIALLY if your the average joe who is just a hobbyist filming their play. They view you as competition and anybody outside their circle as suckers. I was TOLD from multiple sources that the El Cortez won't even give hobbyists permission to film their slots and implied that Slotlady was the only one allowed to film slots for youtube or even for personal use. Let it sit in that even the WYNN which is a BIG step up from Cortez lets you record your own play.

    I'm not saying anything, but it's awfully odd that a Woman who can film TABLE games at El Cortez, has a PATREON benefit that sounds like a back-end deal can film, but some dude who wants to film 2 minutes for posterity can't.

    The videos either start off with a soft opening of an alleged win or the person introducing themselves. Produced introduction is next and the video starts off for at LEAST 10+ minutes, because these people NEED their ad revenue. Content ends and they have an ending for shilling their brand and recapping the day. It's all curated and templated to a TEE.

    I had NO idea. People monetizing slot videos on youtube. The world is passing me by. That’s so fucked up.

    The whole Chris “what’s his name” making baccarat videos was an eye opener too. Depressing as shit though.


    The old folks are health conscious and those are the slot players. Slot revenue is down and that is the mothers milk of brick and mortar. Brick and mortar never solved the riddle they knew was coming. Covid just sped it up. This was all I thought about and faded.

    Interesting thread. I always see Slot Lady and Brian Christopher as suggested videos when I'm checking out any gambling videos on Youtube. I can't fathom watching other people play slots.

    That Brian Christopher guy has actually been in quite a few shows and commercials. Check out his IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3105117/

    Imagine going from Hollywood to begging for tips during slot machine Youtube videos. That would be a humbling transition I would think.

    And how does he have enough "fans" to have a fan club cruise? Would they just play slots all day on the cruise? Why are they called "Rudies"?

    Another big fish in this youtube slot community pond scum is Scott Richter - Mr. Big Jackpot or Raja:

    Name:  12032019_aaron-thackeray_tbj_blackhawk_2019-65.jpg
Views: 392
Size:  84.1 KB

    Now before talking about the present, Scott Richter was one of the biggest mail spammers in the early 2000's. So big that he was responsible for the Saddam/Iraqi deck in the early 2000's. If you had a mail account before 2006, you probably got one of his spam emails. Blogs like focalcurve literally wrote about Scotty suing anti-spam blockers for violating his CONSTITUTIONAL rights to send penis pill ads to your mail box in 2004. He was so big that MICROSOFT launched a lawsuit on him and managed to get $7 million dollars in a settlement. Read his wikipedia page to get the full scope of it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Richter

    As most of his highly unethical and illegal behaviour was in the 200X's, he tried to go back in the early 201X's to do web based stuff. He had his domains yanked by ICANN(Internet regulatory body for online domans) for being involved in more spamming. He realized in 2016 that he could make boatloads of money subsidizing his vice of gambling by starting a youtube channel and owning multiple night clubs. How does a felon who lost multiple million dollar settlements get enough cash to do that? I don't know and legally am insinuating nothing, but just asking a question. Scott uses his youtube channel to advertise online casinos, record himself playing high-limit slots, and act like an entrepreneur for doing so.

    Of course like most of the pond scum in this community, his tags are highly unethical and deceptive. Yea, you're not really going to learn " Slot Machine Winning Strategies", "how to win at slot machines", " Best Slot machines to play", from people who won't even talk about payback percentages in their video or slot volatility by the manufacturer(slot manufacturers like Bally use a 1-5 to indicate payouts and stability). Payback might be hard to get, but the manufacturer literally gives out sheets about their machines to casino staff. Somebody like BC, Slotlady or Raja could easily get them if they asked. More volatile means boom or bust, less volatility is more gentle. Instead, they talk in imprecise terms like "dry" and offer nothing even concrete.

    Brian Christopher stole SDguys1234 phrase of "rude" when getting a near miss in a slot machine. Yes, slot people really do talk to their machines and do other superstitious stuff like touch the screen as well. Since Brian said it quite a bit in his videos, his "community" started to call themselves "Rudies". It's a very common branding tactic as it lets the consumer feel like they're part of something bigger than a failed actor's foray in trying to be a "slot influencer". That's what Brian calls himself, btw.

    Don't feel too bad for Bryan Christopher. Not going to dox him or anything, but his Husband does well for their family. Also, the fact that he lives in a nearly $2 million dollar house in the LA area as well according to my sources. Brian can cry about his middling acting career in his nice house.

    Brian has about 1947 patrons on his patreon. They don't give a cash amount, but his latest video does detail some of the higher donators.

    He has 1 producer credit($300 per month, or $2700 per year), 16 associate producers($100 per month * 16 people, or 1080 per year * 16 people), 28 co-producers($50 per month * 28 people, or $550 per year * 28 people). Just the high-end people give this dude about $1400 + $1600 + $300, or $3300 dollars a month if they paid monthly, or $2,700 + $17,280 + $15,400 = $35,380 if they paid with the yearly discount. This doesn't include the other 1902 patrons, who if they paid the $55 yearly minimum(just theory. I know people who pay more than that and who are under the super whale categories). That would be $104,610 + $35,380 a year, totaling a bare minimum of $139,990. That doesn't include him charging for his sponsored rudies events(yes, he bilks the patrons even when the event is sponsored by multiple slot companies).

    good thread NG...

    i must sadly admit that i am familiar with all of these people...like the shrink these vids started popping up on YT for me and watched them right about the time i was getting let go from the evil empire, trying to see if there might be anything to this that we could capitalize on...

    scary thing is that in addition to all that patreon money that SL and BC get, when they do live streams people actually SEND THEM FUCKING MONEY!!!!! that shit just floors me...so you're basically giving these people $5-10-20 to gamble with instead of gambling yourself?!??!?! and you dont get any kickback or a handy from SL...fuck me...i should have figured out this grift a long time ago...

    raja definitely seems like a total fucking scammer scumbag...dude is constantly firing 5 figures into slot machines...to do that youre either (a) playing with fake money (b) somehow on the take or (c) crooked as fuck...

    it's just fascinating that there are gaggles of people out there who follow these people like a cult...i mean they're hitting buttons on a fucking slot machine, which the last time i checked requires maybe 2-3 active brain cells...

    Brian Christopher literally having a marketing pamphlet posted as an attachment can tell that the guy who would literally do anything to get head. Theirs an infamous story of him going to some hobbyist forum's group pull, recording the whole thing, and going back to his room to edit it when it's over, and than post the group pull before anybody else could even post the video. Mind you he acted like he was just recording it for his local facebook or to have it for his own posterity. Bcslots views the hobbyist as a stepping stone for his own career. Yes, a group pull that Brian acted like he was recording for his own posterity was used to boost his channel early on in his career.

    BCSlotsDeck_Partnerships_Casinos.pdf

    Oh don't worry about the evil empire hiring them. Brian Christopher is being hired by Indian Casinos right now and is flown out to many to produce videos. He puts #AD in the video, but I've seen cooking videos who are way more forthright of being sponsored by something like Squarespace, than he does to being sponsored by a Casino and playing their games. It's amazing how he's skirting having the little paid promotion tab flash under his video, while dudes who fry chicken breast, do it openly and fairly.

    My favorite old school video of his that he has hidden from view was when he was kicked out of the Cromwell and Planet Hollywood back in 2017 when he was way smaller. Mr. Hollywood had a very snippy attitude about it at Cromwell when he didn't ask for permission and tried to sass the guard. This is the true face of Bcslots when he doesn't get his away.

    Incident is about 40 seconds in.



    I was informed that one of the Casino's that gave Slotlady permission to film booted her from filming table play. I was doing a running tally of superchats and people gave her $147.24 in 25 minutes of playing BlackJack. The last few seconds of the video showed something nasty hiding in her demeanor. The fact that her face can manage to shift that fast with her smile is something I've only seen in trained actors and the very mentally unstable.

    Incident from 23:00 onward till end.


    Maybe I'm reading too much in her facial shift, but somebody with more life experience can chime in.

    You are describing most youtubers and seem to be surprised that people spend many hours editing tons of videos because they want to make money, and not out of the goodness of their hearts?

    You are conflating getting paid by someone directly, versus being an affiliate. Some people make this distinction and some do not. A lot of poker pros would also say that they don't work for any poker sites, even as their materials are littered with affiliate codes and promos. It is a fair distinction - annoying but fair.

    Most people do not disclose how much they get paid by their employers. Brad Owens and Andrew Neemie do not tell us how much casinos pay them for each person they bring to their meetup games. It is ok to be curious and I am curious too. Poker app affiliates do not tell us how much they skim. I personally do think it falls under "shadiness" - but I do not think it goes to the level of "scam". Walmart does not tell you their wholesale price and how much they make on you when you buy shampoo at Walmart, either. It's just business.

    Just like everyone else, they need to get permission to film and depending on how the casino feels about it, they might get it or they might not. This is why some of the casinos with lenient video rules keep showing up, this is why some of these players ingratiated themselves with a few specific casinos so they keep taking there, and why some casinos do not appear in any videos at all. IIRC, Cosmo is very lenient and pretty much anyone including you can go record your action...


    It should be obvious that they show the glory of winning. No one wants to watch losers. This goes for most gambling shows. Gambling is a business of deception and that goes for slots as much as it goes for poker: most people will lose big. I can only imagine how many kids derailed their lives hoping to become poker pros after everyone was beating into their brains how awesome it is to be a poker pro and how awesome poker pro lifestyle is.

    ***

    Most of what you describe is business 101 and only slightly shady at best.

    But I heard quite a few rumors about these people. For example, I heard that the casinos give them promo slot dollars that have no actual value to play so that it looks like they are gambling huge and winning huge, when in reality they are not.

    Your points are valid, but my issue is the shady tags, the weird parasocial relationship they manage to gather from lonely people to bilk them out of their money and promote a vice like they were part of a book reading club, and the machevillian use of trying to be "educational" when they're stated purpose is further away from TLC's(The Learning Channel) original purpose.

    My favorite point of yours is the "no one wants to watch losers" thing, because it's actually 100% true in the slot community. I also watch video poker "youtubers", and they're WAY more honest about volatility, losing(some even talk about the total they've lost in a year), or leaving when they're ahead. One such example is a dude name Big Kats video poker who literally hit a handpay in the last 4 minutes of a video and just left the casino, telling the audience why he left.

    I also made the thread to question the relationship they have with the casino's as most of us will never be privy to it, but I've heard that they negotiate a high cash-back percentage of their "loss" at some of the more "cozy" casinos.

    Slotlady's lie of omission saying that she doesn't get paid by El Cortez, but has an affiliate type link in her patreon while being the ONLY person allowed to film there privately or for youtube, hints to something more but unless Ike Gaming Inc./Slotlady spills the beans, we probably will never know the full extent.

    I don't know how true this is, but allegedly casinos might be breaking the Nevada Gaming Control Board regulation by allowing a known felon like Scott Richter aka Big Jackpot to use their high limit rooms and film there under the provisions they used to "de-mob" vegas. I don't know if it's even in use, but this rule is probably in the back of the Casino's mind when he's pimping out competing online casinos during live slot play on the strip. They will probably kick him out once he doesn't make them anymore money based on this regulation.

    Under Regulation 5.010

    4.Failure to conduct advertising and public relations activities in accordance with decency, dignity, good taste, honesty and inoffensiveness, including, but not limited to, advertising that is false or materially misleading.

    5.Catering to, assisting, employing or associating with, either socially or in business affairs, persons of notorious or unsavory reputation or who have extensive police records, or persons who have defied congressional investigative committees, or other officially constituted bodies acting on behalf of the United States, or any state, or persons who are associated with or support subversive movements, or the employing either directly or through a contract, or any other means, of any firm or individual in any capacity where the repute of the State of Nevada or the gaming industry is liable to be damaged because of the unsuitability of the firm or individual or because of the unethical methods of operation of the firm or individual.

    Good thread, NewGuy. I didn't know about any of these people before.

    I agree with you that this is pretty shady, and very misleading.

    They're not nearly as bad as Christopher Mitchell, who lies about winning AND charges you for his bullshit "system" if you want to be like him.

    However, you do raise good points that these people aren't telling the full story, and are implying that they are overall winners at slots. Indeed, if they're only "winning" because their losses are being subsidized by promotional payments related to the videos, then it's putting out a dishonest message, and might entice the Average Joe to try and emulate them.

    Question: Do any of them censor their comments section, CM-style, when people call them out as bullshit artists?

    Yes, in fact, some of the bigger slot channels like Brian Christopher and Slot Lady literally have a full team of moderators whenever they do a livechat. A good way for a comment to be deleted is to mention the first big slot youtube "SDGUY1234" who seems like an eccentric, but above board guy, and "EZ slots" who does this as a hobby. Those two I've mentioned have been at the forefront of exposing Brian Christopher, and since Slotlady+Brian Christopher do collab videos, mentioning those two names in a comment is a pretty fast deletion. It's such a well-tooled business that the mod team has literal directives and a full list of approved/disapproved topics. Here is EZ slots talking about the mod team of Brian Christopher trying to reframe his April 2020 casino visit as normal when he didn't quarantine and broke numerous stay at home orders/laws:

    I've been cruising through the youtube slot videos for a long time. I'm basically looking for new exploitable games. I might pick up some chatter on the internet about a new exploitable game. I look for it on youtube. I like slotlady's videos because she plays for several minutes and you can view the regular game plus the bonus rounds. With a lot of the youtube videos they only put up the big bonus rounds and that sucks. So slotlady is good to get an idea of how the game plays.

    I recently got wind of an exploitable slot game called Regal Riches so I went to youtube. I found it on a slotlady video. The game happened to be in advantage mode when she sat down on it. Whether she knew that or not I don't really know. The 9 blue wilds and 59 minor wilds was big enough to play for. She hit the blue on the first spin, racked up $100 then shortly thereafter busted off the minor for 61 wilds and racked it up some more.

    She kept playing for awhile after hitting the minor, which put the game back into negative expectation, and that leads me to believe she didn't know anything about the advantage.

    The Regal Riches game starts at 6:39

    Discussed it on radio on Saturday. Go to 2:27:30 mark.

    The thing I noticed in Slotlady's El Cortez offer is video poker is disqualified from the offer. According to the vpFREE 2 database, on video poker $1 in action = 1 point. And 500 points = $1 cashback. So $3000 in action would be 3000 points. Strongest game is 99.6%. You would be getting a hotel room too. This would be a good deal if you could use it on video poker. But you can't. You have to play the slots.

    At most places the slots acquire points much faster than video poker. There is nothing in the vpFREE 2 database on points for slot play. One would have to do a countdown on a machine to determine how much action gets 1 point.

    But just doing a ballpark estimate one would probably have to run somewhere between $2000 and $3000 in action to qualify the offer. The theoretical earn for the house is probably somewhere between $200 and $300.

    What she is doing is really no different than what a site like Wizard of Odds does. She's collecting affiliate bonuses.

    Great job on summarizing the thread on the show. The next person I found is a classic true scammer and not just an unethical/shady slot vlogger known as JFK slots - yes, the guy's actual alleged government name is John F. Kennedy:

    Almost every single one of his videos are high-limit poker wins on simple 3-reel slot machines. JFK slots has deemed his winning strategy as "Flippin' and Dippin' " which is a simple version of betting high on 3-reel slot machines and cashing out when getting a decent hit. Repeating this a few times on different machines similar to "hit-and-run" guerilla tactics used by insurgencies to tackle bigger armed entities. See, JFK's spiel is that you can't necessarily WIN all the time at a casino, but you can "flip" your money by "dipping" in the casino's money. Praying on dumb people who don't understand variance or RNG. Here's Mr. JFK explaining his whole method:

    His videos on youtube have numerous detractors with choice quotes - Here is just one video:


    Con Man

    Maybe show a recent, original upload? Just post another one of your neighbor's hits again like that 30K Pink Diamonds you pretended to win.
    If u are alleging win all this money by a new camera . All the high rollers get permission to film like Big Jackpot and Brian Christofer what’s your story. Tired watching from pocket book.
    Why do you repost old videos and pretend to win other slot players jackpots if you "have slots all figured out"? You want to viewers to think you win on a regular basis but it's obvious you don't.
    Another old clip. Must not be winning lately. I swear you posted this video like a million times. Who ever buying your tips or strategy. Is stupid as hell. But keep scamming the suckers.
    Another video of his has even more detractors with juicy hints of the reason for the Jackpots:



    This guy is a joke... just show the ones that you’ve won, live spins are best. $100,000 payout at the end was such a farce, you even look like you just wanted to say hurry up and take this so we can get out of here before somebody tells us to move. I just unsubscribed after that...flipping and dippin but bro you TRIPPIN
    Like he isn't losing 10s of thousands of dollars every day.
    And that wasn't his 100,000 jackpot, it was someone else's, I was there
    Yeah...that 100k hit wasnt your hit. Faking and posing with someone else's win. Shouts and hollers for 8k....whispers and throws a half cocked peace sign while the guy that won in the background says hes gonna go party. Flippin and spittin BS is all.
    This dude walks around casinos filming other people's handpays lmfao
    So, Mr. Flippin' and Dippin' uses other people's handpays as an advertisement for his service and book. I could write an essay about how it's a scam, but just check out his website. It's self-explanatory to any sane person that this man is not Flippin' and Dippin' it.

    You can pay $250 a year to get his exclusive tips and tricks, and don't worry if you forget to extend it, he will AUTORENEW it for you. Yes, that's actually on his website.

    JFK slots is now allegedly building a 20-acre resort in Mississippi from a foreclosed resort property with a dilapidated pool as a resort with his "slot winnings" according to JFK. He stopped making slot videos and now his videos are mostly about rehabbing his newly acquired resort with his wife instructing him in the background.

    The combination of Brian Christopher's business acumen along with Slotlady's ability to monetize her above-average looks created a new youtuber named Lady Luck HQ:

    Francine Maric known as Lady Luck HQ is a well-to-do woman with a decent career who decided to get in on the youtube slot circuit. Her videos are literally 95% winners which is a way worse ratio than Brian Christopher(He's about 80% wins/20% loss from empirical watching) and Slot Lady(65% wins /35% losses). The big difference is that Slot Lady is doing this as a career to subsidize and parlay her gambling losses, and to buy nice designer clothing. Lady Luck HQ is already doing quite well in life and decided that she could even get more money by gamifying the system. She bets incredibly high amounts that almost always guarantees a hand-pay - getting a handpay for $.50 slots is way more of an oddity than a $100 a pull - and than advertises it on youtube. Here's all of her videos from last week:

    A secondary issue with Lady Luck/Slot Lady/Brian Christopher is the weird way they skirt disclosure laws when they're affiliate marketing to their fan-base. Here's one example that skirts the law and shows how they feel about their fanbase:

    I don't know if it's illegal not to say you're affiliate marketing, but it's definitely shady.

    The whole slot youtube community needs to ask the "influencers" to be more forthright.

    Slotlady needs to just come clean for being an affiliate marketer for the El Cortez and label it in her youtube videos. She's getting something extra besides filming permission from El Cortez.

    Brian Christopher needs to just admit on his "#AD" videos that it's not just an AD but full paid promotion from the casino. He's not just getting a check and filming rights, but extra goodies that are far behind an AD.

    You seem to get hung up on these slot people showing winning sessions and good times.

    I wonder if you get annoyed every time you see a beer commercial showing guys surrounded by hot women, the Nike commercial showing off how awesome everyone runs in their shoes, and L'Oreal showing how gorgeous their makeup will make you. Fat people never seem to eat fast food in commercials.

    All companies show fun and winning at life via their products. It's how advertising works. And all affiliates show the fun times and glance over/ignore the negatives. How many affiliates shilling for poker make videos warning us about gambling online and tell us about young kids who destroyed their career prospects because they bought into the poker dream 5-10 years ago? Not many.

    To tell you the truth, I do get annoyed by the beer commercials, by the Nike commercials, by the L'Oreal and fast food commercials. I just don't see most of these slot affiliates are doing anything different.

    Now... if they start selling "systems on how to win" and such, then it crosses the line to fraud territory. But most of them are selling fun times and as weird as it is to believe, a lot of people do seem to like to play slots and most people like to recall fondly their wins (and ignore all the times they've lost.) Some of them might be delusional/fraudsters like the guy selling the BJ winning "system". Most are just affiliate shills - not that much different from the Iphone/Samsung shills who tell us all the great things about the product but bury/ignore drawbacks, costs, alternatives, etc.

    Since this is a poker site, it is interesting to point out that none of the poker youtubers were disclosing what they are getting for hosting meetup games at various casinos. Most/none of them were disclosing what they are getting for pushing people to use poker apps, either.

    This is not to say that it's right. It is only to point out that many similar affiliates do not make good disclosures and common sense tells most customers that they are getting something. More disclosures would be nice, but as it is, poor disclosure is not a big slot community conspiracy - it is part of normal course of business in most industries.

      NewGuy: You seriously are bring up good points. I'm not saying that she has to disclose the terms, but a simple disclaimer that she's an affilate on her videos would make her above board, IMHO.

It's a minor thing to be mad about, but the precedence that having youtube slot influencers break FTC laws with impunity probably means stricter youtube enforcement in the coming years as a "corrective measure". As youtube drama tends to have a very reactive effect on video policy on the website. I don't want gambling youtubers to be banned or restricted, because slot lady couldn't put #AD in her video title while playing at the El Cortez, or Brian Christopher didn't check a box that the video is Paid Promotion.

    They can still do their thing, but being a tiny bit more forthright means avoiding the "corrective measure" effect that youtube does. It also secures their financial bag as both are living comfy off of slots.

    Now JFK slots is a pure scammer. Selling a $250s slot system and videotaping other people's handpay as "proof" is typical scammer behavior.

    Saw a new Brian Christopher video that perplexes me. Please put your input in if you've played slots at MGM properties, preferably ARIA, but his latest video has a brand new(like on the casino floor) variant of wheel of fortune multi-denom(1,2,5,10 cent) game in a livestream. He's allegedly the first person to play this IGT slot on a casino floor, and has an IGT sponsored giveaway in the description box. Take that into consideration.

    I was watching him play for 40 minutes and noticed that his slot points didn't change much. IIRC, besides a few exceptions, most slot machines at Aria give you 1 base point for $3 of coin-in play, and this machine according to Brian Christopher allegedly gives you a 5x base point bonus. This doesn't take account into the mlife tier benefits that give an extra 10%/20%/30%/40%, but a guy like him probably at least would get some benefit for pouring a lot of money into these things and probably has to be above entry level. Let's be generous and assume he got no bonus benefit at all and he's starting at entry level

    Anyway, here's a screencap of the base points at 3 minutes:

    Here's a screencap of the base points at ~43 minutes:

    Name:  base points at 43 minutes.png
Views: 41
Size:  2.29 MB

    Let's assume he got 129 session points or $387 coin-in. His bets during the video made me think there's something going on, because he was betting anywhere from 2-15$ a spin. So I got a notepad and literally wrote down the spins up to that 43 minute:

    7 spins at $6 at 32744 points
    8 free spins at $6
    13 spins at $6
    10 spins at $3
    44 spins at $4.50
    34 spins at $6.00
    8 free spins at $6
    14 spins at $9
    15 spins at $9
    6 spins at $15
    19 spins at $6
    8 free spins at $6
    20 spins at $6
    17 spins at $9 end at 32873 points
    Excluding free spins, he had around (20+19+34+13+7) ninety-three $6 dollar spins ALONE. That's around $558 dollar coin-in or a bare minimum of 186 session points before any mlife or machine specific bonus.

    Adding it all together:
    10 spins *$3 = $30 - 10 base points
    44 spins * $4.50 = $198 - 66 base points
    93 spins * $6 = $558 coin-in - 186 base points
    46 spins * $9 = $414 coin-in - 138 base points
    6 spins * $15 = $90 coin-in - 30 base points

    Total is $1290 coin-in . Instead of getting $3 coin-in for one point at base level with no machine bonus - this alleged slot machine gives you the same amount of coin-in as a video poker machine at $10 for one point .

    I wouldn't of posted so soon after my last post, but as he's bouncing around machines in the same video, he hits an older thanksgiving buffalo machine at around the 57 minute mark, we get to see the points accumulate.



    This video has him betting $2.50 and getting almost a new base point per pull which is close to the $3 coin-in to 1 point ratio stated on MGM's website. This is way faster than the wheel of fortune game, which makes no sense as this wheel of fortune variant doesn't even have the 5x bonus. I really don't want to assume anything, and would love to be corrected from the smart people at PFA, but that has to either be technical error or something shady on this Wheel of Fortune variant. My brain can't wrap around a penny slot that has the same amount of coin-in to point ratio as a videopoker machine.

    An actual super-chat somebody posted in that livestream which validates my posting of this thread in my opinion:

    Not even the biggest superchat donation as some Rudie whale named bob donated $200 and does these high donations frequently.
