Profile: JB Elah Slot Channel

JB Elah Slot Channel isn’t like most other slots influencers – instead of pushing tacky thumbnails and yelling at the screen, he’s proven that wisdom comes with age by posting cool, calm, and collected recordings of big jackpot wins that would make most casual gamblers faint.

JB Elah has been playing slots in the high-limit room since he was old enough to gamble back in the 1960s, but he only started recording his gameplay in August of 2018. He’s old enough to be the father of many slot influencers, but he’s won more cash than most of his peers combined.

He never raises his voice too much, even when he gets life-changing wins at his favorite casino in Choctaw or Durant. He was born and raised in Oklahoma, and that’s where he films the vast majority of his videos. His channel has earned 31.3k YouTube subscribers at the time of writing. 

He’s also raked in over 17 million views over the past six years. We’ll take a closer look at how the grandfather of slots has changed the landscape and left an indelible mark on the scene. 

JB Elah Slot Channel Quick Facts

  • JB Elah Slot Channel doesn’t have any social media pages – you won’t find his videos on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Patreon, or Twitch. If you do find his videos posted anywhere else besides his main YouTube, somebody has used his intellectual property.
  • There’s not much known about JB Elah’s personal life, but we do know that he likes to play a lot of VGT slots in local casinos. Unlike traditional reels, VGT slots are more like bingo and are considered Class II machines – they also feature a higher payback rate. 
  • JB Elah has posted a grand total of 571 YouTube videos at the time of writing, but he’s only gotten around to making one YouTube short. Luckily, most of his slots videos get down to business without taking 25 minutes to show the “highlights” of his experience. 
  • JB Elah doesn’t state how much he usually spends per spin in his YouTube bio, but we did some digging and discovered that JB Elah will play anywhere from $25 to $100 per spin. Occasionally, he’ll dip back down to $10 or $15 per spin when he’s not rolling high.
  • JB Elah Slot Channel is a strong proponent of responsible gambling even though his bankroll seems to stretch on for miles. In his YouTube bio, he reminds his subscribers that the “odds are always with the casino, so know your entertainment budget limit.” 

Where to Find JB Slot Channel 

Channel Highlights 

Most Popular Video: $100 MR. MONEY BAGS lot of spins finally a LIVE HANDPAY VGT Choctaw Casino Durant

As one YouTube commenter stated, “When you can put that many 100s in the machine, you’re already winning.” JB Elah Slot Channel’s most popular video to date was uploaded to YouTube on August 28, 2018. It’s since received 1.8+ million views (at the time this article was written). 

JB Elah spent ten minutes feeding one of his favorite VGT slot machines crisp, hundred-dollar bills until it spit back a massive handpay. He started out with $500 and burned through 4 unlucky spins before he won back $500 on his final spin and another $1,000 on the spin after that. This brought his total to $1,500, which he promptly whittled down to $700 before winning back $200. 

It’s impossible to keep track of just how much he spent at the reels, but we’re willing to bet that his “massive” jackpot handpay allowed him to break even. He kept getting saved by the bell, so to speak, until he made a comeback with a $4,000 win eight seconds before the video finished.

Schedule: New Videos

JB Elah Slot Channel posts very sporadically, and they took a hiatus from October of 2023 until January 2024 for unknown reasons. However, he’s back posting again as of February 6th, 2024. Looking back through the archives, he posts his slot gameplay just four or five times per month.

There are no other social media channels to mention, so you should subscribe to his YouTube channel if you want to receive push notifications whenever he uploads a new high-limit video. 

Origin Story

For someone who grew up in an era without camcorders or the Internet, JB Elah Slot Channel was surprisingly popular from the start! His oldest video, which recorded $18 spins on the VGT slot Lightning Wilds Polar, has received 11k views since it was published on August 20th, 2018. 

He upped the ante for his second video, in which he found himself (yet again) trying to get Mr. Money Bags to spit back some serious cash with massive, $100 spins. Finally, his third attempt on Mr. Money Bags resulted in a $32,000 jackpot win and earned him 483k+ views to match. 

Interestingly enough, he began averaging 10k-15k views per upload the month he started his YouTube slots channel. Not many slots influencers got off to such a strong start, and his tenth clip is his most popular video: he didn’t win anywhere near $32k, but he did get 1.8M+ views. 

Fast forwarding to the end of 2018 through 2020, JB Elah Slot Channel reached its peak with tens of thousands of people watching his every move. He averaged between 30k – 40k views per upload for two consecutive years before his popularity died down a bit from 2022 onwards. 

As of right now, JB Elah is back on the hunt to regain the Internet fame he once enjoyed. He’s currently averaging between 10k and 15k views per video, but we’d expect this figure to climb.

Community and Giveaways 

Unfortunately, because JB Elah Slot Channel doesn’t have any socials aside from YouTube, we can safely say that he doesn’t host any giveaways or meet-and-greets. The “Community” page on his YouTube channel is also barren, but that’s where he’ll post if he ever runs a proper event.
