Best Youtube online slot channels

Best Youtube slot channels

Amongst the thousands of channels that are hosted on Youtube, there are quite a few that are well recommended if you enjoy watching slot play online.

I have listed below the ones that I recommend. Please take note that these channels are from those that as a rule don’t stream their slot play live on either Twitch, Youtube or any other streaming service. All of the channels feature slot play with real money and offer commentary in the English language.

Probably the oldest of the channels, I recommend you watch the channel of Dazza G, also known as Dunover. He plays a variety of slots at very sensible stakes. His arch enemy is most probably Raging Rhino, a slot by WMS that he likes and hates at the same time. It features a lot in his videos. His adult commentary is classic and after watching him for a while you will get used to terms such as “Turd of the unflushed toilet”, “Netent variance” and his most recent one “duff, duff, duff – fuck all”.

Arguably the most popular of the channels, The Bandit does not need any introduction. Steve creates some 3 to 4 videos a week that tend to be one hour in length. Betting size varies from £1.50 to very large bet sizes. He plays a large variety of slots from a large number of casinos. His sense of humour is very addictive and down to earth. Monthly competitions are also a feature of the channel with very generous cash giveaways for the loyal viewers each month.

A brand new channel that is recommended too is Beat the Novomatics. As the title suggests, it features Novomatic slot machines only. What makes this channel good is that it is different from the usual. A certain slot is selected each week and 100 spins are played each day on it. The aim is to beat the Novomatic by ending up in profit each day and preferably at the end of the week. Live commentary is provided, of course. At the time of writing this article the channel is very young, so any subscriptions to the channel will be appreciated by the creators of it. I can foresee it growing to become very popular!

What all of these channels have in common is that they feature the up and downs of online slot play. You will see losing as well as winning sessions unlike the many other channels that are on Youtube that just feature big wins. Whilst these channels, of course, have a purpose too; it makes you always wonder how much was invested to get those big wins shown.

My channel features a combination of streamed play and the big wins from them, and are clearly marked as such.

You can enjoy spending hours on Youtube watching online slots and I hope that my above mentioned recommendations will make that enjoyment even better.

One off Slot Stream on Tuesday 23rd May 2017

Next Stream 23/05/2017

Be ready for a one off stream this Tuesday 23rd May 2017 starting at 08:30 UK time. Play will be at Novibet casino starting with a healthy £200 to kick the session off.

The intention is to get through as many bonuses on mainly the Microgaming slots such as Immortal Romance, Finer Reels of Life, Playboy, Dragonz, Jurassic Park and Thunderstruck II. All of these slots have bonuses that get unlocked as you progress through them. At the end of the progressing bar, the player is then finally able to select the desired bonus from a selection of four different ones. It takes about 20 or so bonus rounds on each of these slots to achieve this.

£200 is a healthy balance but you will not see me playing at £0.90+ because the bank roll is just not big enough to get what we aim to achieve. Betting will therefore sit between £0.30 and £0.60 depending on the state of the balance.

I really do look forward to this stream. I kind of missed the streaming of slots. Recent decent wins on some of the Novomatic slots has given me a very decent bank roll once I start streaming good and proper again probably towards the end of July / start of August.

You can watch the stream live this Tuesday 23rd May commencing at 08:30 in the morning via either Twitch or Youtube. Following me on Twitch or subscribing on my Youtube channel (or do both of course, I don’t really mind!) ensures that you get notification when the stream goes live.

I can’t guarantee big wins or not going bust, but I can guarantee you good viewing time, the occasional swear word or two thrown in, and a lively interactive chat.

See you all on Tuesday!

Casumo Casino removed from the accredited section by Casinomeister

Casumo removed from Accedited section at Casinomeister

Who would have guessed that Casumo Casino has been removed from the accredited section on the well respected Casinomeister website?

So what is the reason for this decision by what is considered to be the go to website in terms of finding out at which casino to play?

The reason is simply because the way that Casumo deals with affiliates that use tactics that are rather dodgy when it comes to promoting the casino. Claims such as unrealistic or unachievable “jackpots” (I mean, a jackpot on Starburst – you have got to be joking!), claims that the casino is the fastest one available in terms of withdrawal speeds, not so clear sign up bonuses and affiliates that think sending spam emails is the way to get new sign ups.

So how does Casumo deal with these affiliates? It appears from a topic on Casinomeister that they don’t. They have not made commitments to deal with affiliates that are breaking the terms- and conditions of the affiliate contract. Unlike other casinos that have the balls to take a tough stand against such affiliates, Casumo has made no commitment to close their accounts, or penalise the affiliate by withholding their commission earned.

It was only when Bryan, the owner of Casinomeister, removed them from the accredited section that answers were forthcoming from the casino representative on the forum. They explained that internally they have taken action, but were not prepared to share this action with the forum audience. This didn’t, as you can image, go down too well.

So what does this mean for a player that deposits and plays at Casumo? There is nothing to worry about at all. Your money is safe, the games behave as they should and you will get paid promptly when you’re lucky enough to be in a position to make a withdrawal.

The removal of Casumo from the accredited section was expected after the complaints on the forum about the many spam emails dispatched by some of their affiliates, and I salute Bryan and the Casinomeister team for making this brave decision. Losing accreditation on one of the leading casino information websites must be a kick in the teeth for Casumo.

Here is hoping that Casumo has learned their lesson and starts action again rogue affiliates by closing their accounts or penalising them via alternative means. Actions speak louder than words, so we will have to wait with baited breath how this all develops.

Win an Ipad Pro at Videoslots Casino

Win one of 5 Ipad Pro's at Videoslots Casino

How do you fancy grabbing a chance to win one of five Ipad Pro’s at Videoslots Casino or the chance of a share of 2,500 spins on the ever so popular IGT slot Cleopatra?

Partaking is very easy. Load up either the IGT slot Cleopatra or Cleopatra Plus and keep spinning those reels. For every €5 (or currency equivalent) wagered between now and close of play on the 14th May 2017 you earn one ticket into the raffle. The more you wager, the more tickets you will have in the raffle.

But not only do you have the chance to win one of these 5 Ipad Pro’s, each day 10 lucky players will receive 50 free spins (wager free of course!) on the Cleopatra slot.

The five lucky winners of the Ipad Pro will be drawn before the 20th May 2017 and will be notified by Videoslots. Don’t fancy an Ipad Pro? A cash alternative of not more than €600 may be selected instead.

The Ipad Pro is the 32GB version with a screen size of 9.7 inch. It may take up to 2 months for it to be delivered to your home address if you’re lucky enough to win it.

Both the Cleopatra slots are one of the most popular slots made by innovative game provider IGT. The slots feature a very distinct Egyptian theme with smooth graphics. They have been popular at the brick and mortar casinos and are now available for your playing pleasure online.

Signing up at Videoslots casino now via the below mentioned link guarantees you an exclusive welcome deposit match bonus of 100% up to £400 (normally just £200) plus an additional 150 free spins on the ever so popular slot Starburst on top of the 11 free spins you get when depositing just £20.

Remember that the chance of winning one of the 5 Ipad Pro’s finishes at end of play on the 14th May 2017 so get playing either Cleopatra or Cleopatra plus sooner rather than later at Videoslots Casino.

No other casino offers so much so the decision to play at Videoslots is not a difficult one to make.

Twitch.tv and the view bots in the Casino section

Twitch viewbots

Those familiar with the Twitch Casino section know the frustration of seeing channels listed that have in excess of 1,000 viewers. Whilst there are genuine channels that have this number of viewers, it is safe to say that most of these channels have these numbers because they use so called view bots.

Recently, Twitch has taken action against these channels that were using view bots to boost their viewers. Channels have finally been closed down, it resulting in the genuine channels again taking correct rank in the listing.

So why do these streamers use view bots? Having a high number of viewers ensures that the channel is listed first in the respective directory. It shows that the stream is popular with active chat, so the tendency for visitors is to go into that stream. But those viewers will be bitterly disappointed when their chat messages are not replied to, or if the chat consists of automated messages transmitted by the view bots.

Streamers that use these bots in the Casino section may also be under the false impression that it will result in a fast ticket to partnership. Little do they know that Casino streamers are not legible for partnership, so their investment in the bot software will never see a proper return.

All that these fake streamers want to do is get quick affiliate commission by hoping that viewers click on the links to the respective casino or casinos. The links are prominently displayed underneath the stream with little or no information about the streamer or the channel.

So how do you know if a streamer is using view bots? Clicking on the respective channel and seeing the number of followers gives a good clue. Some of the fake channels had 200 followers, yet had in excess of 2,000 viewers. This is neigh on possible and it is the first clue that a view bot programme is artificially boosting the numbers.

The second clue can be found by clicking on the viewers list. Look at the names and you see patterns forming. Usernames are not genuine with most of them ending with numbers.

The final clue is simply observing the chat. Some of the cheaper view bot programmes don’t make chat messages so if the chat is empty, yet there are hundreds or thousands of viewers, there surely is something amiss. Equally, view bots are easily spotted because they repeat the messages if they are capable of participating in chat.

So the best thing to do when spotting a streamer that you suspect uses view bots, is to report it to Twitch via the button at the bottom right of the stream.

To know for sure if a channel is genuine and free of view bots, please refer to the excellent Casinogrounds website that lists a lot of the genuine streamers on their home page. A schedule of their forthcoming streams is shown on the right hand side for easy reference.

Off course, not all of the streamers are listed on Casinogrounds but it is not too difficult to spot the genuine ones if you take the above mentioned tips into consideration.

Happy casino viewing on Twitch!

Bonanza slot – probably the most dangerous slot out there

Bonanza slot - the most dangerous one out there!

Those that are familiar with the Big Time Gaming slot called Bonanza know that it is super high variance taken to the extreme, it therefore making it the most dangerous slot one can play online available.

The trouble, if you can call it that, with this slot is the length of time it can take to trigger the bonus round. This bonus round is triggered by having 4 or more scatters in view that spell out the word “Gold”. From both real and play money gaming, I know from experience that it is not uncommon for it take over 2,000 spins before you see this magic word appearing on screen.

The next challenge playing this slot is, that when eventually the bonus does trigger, that it can really do you over by awarding wins between 0x and 20x stake. The bonus round is where the real money sits in this game with an unlimited (yeah right!) multiplier. The multiplier increases each time there is a win.

The base game in Bonanza behaves itself usually pretty well. The balance doesn’t skydive too quickly. It is a little like an egg timer with the balance slowly but steadily heading towards bust town.

Back in February of this year, I met one of the staff of Big Time Gaming in London and we had a discussion about Bonanza. I explained that us gamers don’t want to wait thousands of spins for a bonus to trigger. I compared the slot many a time to Netents Dead or Alive that is pretty high variance too. Unlike Bonanza, the bonus rounds in Dead or Alive triggers on average every 160 spins. The average bonus trigger frequency in Bonanza appears to be every 500 spins as comparison.

During the aforementioned discussion with the Big Time Gaming representative, he sort of admitted that they had the bonus frequency wrong. Whilst they took a lot of time developing the game engine, he could see the frustration from a players point of view.

So should you play this slot? It certainly has the potential. Just look at this win of 14,000x bet size during the bonus round that can be found on Youtube (clip courtesy of streamer Letsgiveitaspin):

Impressive isn’t it? But one should remember that wins like the 14,000x one are rare. I would even say super rare. You most probably have an equal chance hitting the Mega Moolah jackpot as hitting such a massive hit during the bonus round in Bonanza!

So treat this slot with caution. Give it a few spins now and then and see if the bonus round triggers quick. Never chase it, because it more likely than not will end in disaster. I have done it before, chase the bonus round only to be mugged off with a bonus round that paid less than 50x. It was almost fist through screen time!

Bonanza can be played on the excellent Videoslots Casino. Playing at Videoslots ensures speedy withdrawals if you’re lucky enough to be in that position. And, of course, you can partake in the two hourly free roll battles and enjoy weekly cash back and race money. In game rewards are offered too to boot.

Taking a very long break from playing slots

Well the time finally arrived when slot playing was not fun any longer so it is time to take a very long break from playing online slots.

Viewers of my streams may have  noticed that deposits were disappearing very fast. There were distinct lack of bonuses and game play was terrible. You accept when you make your deposit that it is considered lost, but in return you do expect the deposit to last.

It was the last straw that broke the camels back so to speak. As the slogan goes, if the fun stops, stop! and that is what I did.

I closed all of my casino accounts to stop the temptation to log in and try again.

I will definitely miss the streaming part of playing slots. I have very good memories of the many streams I broadcasted. I appreciate every viewer watching me play slots because you the viewer always have a choice of watching a number of channels. I felt very privileged having so many loyal viewers tuning in each time.

I also thank all of the kind viewers that put their hand in their pockets and made donations.

At the start, I really enjoyed playing slots. I was extremely lucky to hit almost £5,000 of winnings over a 3 weeks period playing Dead or Alive. I had good play time, big hits and a nice trip to Malta to boot courtesy of a competition win at Videoslots Casino.

But it went downhill at the start of this year. Lady luck disappeared and so did the previous mentioned winnings plus some.

Thankfully I recognised that if I continued to play it was going to go downhill very fast. I never exceeded the budget I set and only gambled away money that I could afford to lose. But just thinking about what that money could have bought was the final straw. I am left with good memories that will last a life time which I considered value for money at the point that I stopped donating more money to the casino so to speak. Streaming my slot play helped me gain those memories. I shared the ups and downs of playing slots which I hope my viewers appreciated.

This post also serves as a good reminder of the potential dangers of online gambling. You can easily get carried away. Please take note of the following tips:

• Don’t see gambling as a means to earn a living
• Always gamble with money that you can afford to lose
• Never chase losses
• Set a money limit
• Set a time limit
• Gamble only when you are in the right frame of mind
• Don’t have gambling as an exclusive hobby
• Gambling and alcohol- and drug use don’t mix

Will I be back to streaming again? Who knows what the future holds. If I am, you will hear it hear first!!!

Take care and be lucky on the slots!
