Slot streaming blew up in the 2010’s, largely thanks to one platform. Twitch launched back in 2011, and soon became the home for communities of slots fans in the US and around the world. 

But even though Twitch has historically been the biggest platform, it’s far from the only show in town. Plenty of popular slot streamers with massive audiences have made their homes on other platforms, either exclusively or in addition to Twitch. 

In 2022, Twitch tightened its rules surrounding streaming gambling content online, which helped boost the popularity of alternative platforms further. 

On this page, we’re taking a look at some of the top slot streamers across five different platforms, and how Twitch’s new rules have affected the ecosystem. 

Platform Table

Check out the table below to see the streamers currently dominating each platform. 

It’s worth calling out here that the world of streaming moves fast and streamers can move from one platform to the next at the drop of a hat. Our list reflects the top active slot streamers in each category, who feel like they are leading their respective platforms in 2023.

Twitch: Trainwreckstv – 2,100,000 followers

Tyler Faraz Niknam – better known as Trainwreckstv – has been riding the Twitch wave since 2015. His content is diverse and his huge 2.1 million audience tune in for a combination of old school slot streaming, video games and other types of crossover content. 

Like more than one of the streamers on this list, Trainwreckstv briefly made his exit from Twitch streaming in 2022. His absence was in reaction to new rules that came into effect preventing streaming on certain types of gambling, most notably slot games on sites that are not licensed in the US. More on that later.

But Trainwreckstv’s absence was short lived. As of 2023, he is back streaming regularly on Twitch to one of the biggest fanbases of any streamer in the world.  

YouTube: Brian Christopher – 571,000

Streaming on YouTube is like the more accessible cousin of Twitch. First and foremost, YouTube is a video database and search engine, and building communities via live streaming is not integral to its DNA in the same way it is on Twitch.

The flipside to this is that YouTube is more friendly to casual fans and beginners, and a great entry point into the world. For proof of this, look no further than Brian Christopher.

Christopher’s schedule of going live 3 times per week and uploading extra non-live content hits the YouTube sweet spot. His streams are open, accessible and feel more interested in sharing his experience than chasing big jackpot wins. 

He’s the perfect YouTube slot steamer. 

Facebook: CasinoDaddy – 10,000

Many streamers have at least some kind of presence on Facebook, but few are putting the yards in 2023 that CasinoDaddy are. Rather than a single streamer, CasinoDaddy is a group of friends from Sweden who stream slots along with some other casino games thrown in for good measure from time to time. 

Their commitment is extremely impressive: collectively they stream 14 hours a day, every day and maintain active profiles on a variety of platforms. Their combination of slots updates, memes and community engagement plays well on Facebook, and it’s a big reason the collective is still posting most days.

On a platform that can feel like an afterthought in the streaming world, CasinoDaddy are keeping things fresh and vital for their 10,000 and growing Facebook community. 

DLive: ClassyBeef – 24,000

ClassyBeef is another streaming collective, this time in the form of six friends from Malta. The group built their reputation streaming on Twitch, primarily on – a platform which Twitch ultimately banned streams from in 2022. 

ClassyBeef maintained their Twitch activities, pivoting away from slot streaming into more general content. That meant they needed to find a new streaming platform to host their Stake content, and DLive fit the bill perfectly. 

With 24,000 followers already and steady growth expected, ClassyBeef are streaming regularly on DLive and offering exclusive bonuses and offers for Twitch’s loss has been DLive’s gain. 

Kick: Roshtein – 48,000

2022 was a year of upheaval for slots streamers, including for heavyweights like Roshstein. Thanks to Twitch’s new rules, Roshtein had to briefly leave the platform and his over million strong audience in search of a new home more friendly to his brand of slot streaming. 

Kick (along with DLive) has emerged as the solution to streamers like Roshtein’s problems. The platform feels very similar to Twitch, with the crucial difference being that its rules surrounding what kind of gambling content can be streamed are significantly more relaxed. 

Roshtein has found a new home, picking up thousands of followers on a daily basis and nearly hitting 50,000 in the first few weeks of 2023. Roshtein streams on Kick more or less daily, and feels like the streamer poised to take the platform stratospheric.

New Twitch Rules

The streaming landscape changed a lot in the back half of 2022, when Twitch rolled out its new rules surrounding what kind of gambling content could and could not be streamed. 

While inaccurately reported in some publications as a “ban on gambling”, Twitch’s new rules did have a massive impact on the biggest slot streamers on the platform, like Trainswreckstv and Roshtein.

The rules were as follows:

  • Streaming slots, roulette or dice games from gambling sites that are not licenced in the US were to be banned.
  • Twitch explicitly mentioned that,,, and were to be banned, along with any additional similar sites they may identify. 
  • Twitch reiterated that sharing links or referral codes to these types of sites was also banned.

The above criteria basically covered an awful lot of the most popular slot streaming content on Twitch. 

Which made sense: online gambling laws in the US are comparatively strict and vary state by state – meaning the options for streaming from sites licensed in the US were limited. 

The new rules opened the door for platforms like Kick and DLive, which jumped at the opportunity to position themselves as a streaming alternative with a more relaxed attitude to content regulation. 

Lots of streamers made the transition, seeking and finding the same conditions that they had enjoyed on Twitch for so many years. 

Still, it’s not like there’s no gambling content on Twitch, it’s just more tightly regulated than before. The industry shake up means we expect to see more diversification in 2023 and beyond, as the different streaming platforms continue to compete and find their own niches and their own streaming stars.
