The Twitch streaming portal is best known for the fact that young people watch transmissions of games like “Fortnite”. Who thinks, on the platform, which belongs to the Amazon retail group , let’s see only classic video games, he should once Félix Lengyel alias xQc watch for hours d he 26-year-old in the chair in front of his computer, in a hurry he chases four-digit sums through a virtual slot machine. He occasionally wins six to seven figures, but most of the time he loses. It’s an eternal wait for another big sum to pop up.
The xQc streams are a hit though. On average around 67. People watch the french-canadian streamer watching him gamble in online casinos that pay him to do just that.
16 The slim, blond man sat in front of his computer for hours that day, commenting on videos from the Internet for his live audience, playing “Call of Duty” and chatting with other streamers. Then someone sent him a link to a tweet from Twitch. xQc looked sideways and read, mouth down, eyes slightly squinted. Twitch had just announced that the platform would publish new regulations in just over a month that would severely restrict gambling streams. Streams like those of xQc. The next moment he opened an online casino and threw again 973 dollars into a virtual machine. »28 Days bro,” he said, grinning.
