xQc urges Twitch to ban Gambling streams due to irresponsible streamers – Following the recent gambling scam drama, xQc has spoken about the need for Twitch to ban gambling streams on the purple platform. He points out that irresponsible gambling streams can cause more harm. Gambling on Twitch has been a hot topic recently after another Twitch streamer ‘ItsSliker’ confessed to scamming viewers and other streamers of thousands of dollars.
After the news unfolded, xQc took to Twitter and wrote, “We are aware of this Sliker situation and the victims who were scammed out of their hard-earned money. Me and Ludwig will be trying our best to get money back to those people. This is about the victims, only them.”
Though xQc now demands an end to this gambling meta, he was also an active participant in promoting such streams in the past. Also, he had received a lot of criticism for his prior involvement with gambling streams after entering into a deal with an online casino. But realizing the current situation even he wants Twitch to put a stop to them.

In one of the latest live streams the Twitch star, xQc pointed out that some streamers are “disingenuous” about their affiliations and that he thinks the platform should outlaw gambling streams going forward. “The reason why I think Twitch should ban gamba isn’t that gamba is bad enough to be banned, the fact is a lot of people, a lot of creators, 99% of people who stream gamba have deals and have a system that doesn’t display what gambling is and it’s disingenuous, irresponsible way,” xQc said.
“That is the problem, is that people cannot be trusted to show the actual reality of it. That’s the problem, they are not to be trusted. Do you understand? That’s why it should be banned because you cannot trust your average streamer,” he continued.
Many other streamers have also called Twitch to ban gambling streams, Pokimane being on the forefront. Though Twitch has admitted to investigating in the platform’s gambling-related content, no immediate changes or potential bans are in the works.
