Profile: OldSchoolSlots

Stephan, who’s more widely known on YouTube as OldSchoolSlots, invokes an unmistakable sense of nostalgia with every video he uploads. Most influencers gravitate towards jackpot slots with flashy graphics, but Stephan brings his viewers back in time by playing older 3-reel slots.

As he spins for jackpot prizes & triple sevens, he’s banking it all on a single payline. His affinity for old-school slots has earned him 68.3k+ YouTube subscribers, 11.2k+ TikTok followers, and 35k+ Facebook followers. Since 2019, he’s posted 745 videos with a total of 29.3 million views. 

He’s also relatable to a casual audience because he doesn’t make a living from slots. Rather, he shows up at Mohegan Sun with $500 – $1,000 and spends money carefully to maximize wins. If you’re here for a chance to relive the glory days of casino gambling, Stephan has you covered. 

OldSchoolSlots Quick Facts 

  • Stephan abandons newer slot games with multiple paylines and flashy animations. He instead plays three-reel slots exclusively, and he’s won $50,000 on a single spin. His methodical and disciplined approach to slots gambling has delivered staggering wins.
  • OldSchoolSlots has a lesser-known YouTube channel! When he’s not busy shutting down high-limit jackpot slots, he plays blackjack and tri-card poker. He’s published 48+ exciting videos and earned another 2k+ subscribers on his Old-School Slots Play Table Games YouTube channel. 
  • Stephan’s most popular video, boasting 4.8 million views, was published soon after he reached 5,000+ subscribers. However, it was filmed at Mohegan Sun in June of 2019 when he only had six subscribers. 
  • Stephan lives in Connecticut, and he’s closest to Mohegan Sun. Coincidentally, that’s where he landed his three largest-ever wins. He also encourages fans to send letters the “Old-School Slots” way to his mailing address, which is listed in his YouTube bio.
  • Stephan is married to his wife Julia, who is affectionately dubbed “Mrs. Old-School Slots” (or MOSS for short). He also brings his mom to the casino, where they play slots and hit giant handpays together!

Most Popular Video: Epic Highest Jackpot on YouTube Caught Live! Double Diamond Deluxe MASSIVE Hand Pay *High Limit*

Schedule: New Videos 

OldSchoolSlots doesn’t outline a consistent schedule for his YouTube uploads, but he posts new videos four to six days a week. He tends to play his favorite slots in the morning, which allows him to avoid the crowd. Check his channel between 12 PM4 PM EST for new posts! 

He also runs a dedicated blackjack and poker channel, which admittedly receives a little less attention. When he does upload new videos there, he tends to post in batches every month

Stephan last posted on TikTok in March 2023, but there are plenty of highlights to gloss over. 

Origin Story

OldSchoolSlots launched his YouTube channel on May 24th, 2019. His oldest video, which has around 14,000+ views, was published just shy of a month later on June 11th, 2019. Unlike many slot influencers on YouTube, Stephan found himself thrust into the spotlight almost immediately. 

His third-ever video accumulated 105,000+ views, and he quickly gained popularity by covering a niche that was previously untouched. Even though hundreds of slots influencers are gunning for mainstream success, not many of them have focused on three-reel machines like Stephan. 

Having stumbled upon the winning formula without too much effort, he kept doing what worked and posted 745+ slots gameplay videos in a four-year span. His tireless work ethic paid off, and he now boasts 68,000+ YouTube subscribers. Buckle up for a wild ride as he climbs to the top.

In his words, the rest is slots history.

He doesn’t host giveaways on a fixed schedule, but he goes all-out when he finally gets around to it. In the spirit of kicking off the New Year, he invited fans to join him and his wife at Foxwoods Resort for Slot-a-Con! He dished out $10,000 in free play credits to more than 40 lucky winners. 

Beyond lavish meet-and-greets, Stephan stands out from his peers with an approachable and friendly demeanor.
