How Do Streamers Earn a Profit
In the last six months the market of streams has grown and changed, now the streams have become just a cheap marketing move to attract new players to the casino.
In a lot of countries it has probably become the only way to earn money, as all the casino websites often get blocked right away and it is extremely problematic to earn some money, and even more problematic to earn money at a new site. But that’s not what we’re talking about.
For those who don’t know why do people stream (and believe me, there are such people) I’ll explain it in a few words. Or rather I want to talk about one more side of the deal. The main reason is of course earnings from the affiliate programs, and the second is a profitable game. Now I’ll explain more.
The main reason is pretty clear. I think I don’t have to explain to anybody what affiliate programs are and how streamers earn with it, but I’ll give minimal info just in case. The essence is simple, you register an affiliate program (it takes literally five minutes) and get a link.
By placing this link on the website you get some percent from the losses of those players that are registered after clicking on it, usually from 30% to 50%. Then the question of honesty versus cash immediately arises, because if cash wins, a person usually streams in casinos with scripts (but scripts are now being hated online and there are no more suckers to dupe), or the casinos with delayed withdrawals, low limits and other nonsense. So the streamers must be interested in people always depositing without winnings, and if someone wins, he don’t withdraw his money. But there is really tough competition on the market, and therefore, most casinos began to payout without delays, though still trying to con money out of the gambler at every opportunity.
And so the streamer needs to stream for the sake of the stream itself, that’s why everyone plays for many hours and at low rates, the main thing is to play constantly and attract players every day. By the way, I’ll say right away that it’s not as easy as you would think, I didn’t stream myself much, but after 3-4 hours of streaming you feel just tired and broken, and if you play alone during the same period of time, it’s a completely different feeling. In fact, streaming is like a TV show, which sells ads in the form of affiliate casino program.
All this is great, of course, but the new question immediately arises – where can the streamer take so much money, and if the streamer is greedy and dishonest, he will not risk his money at all and will play with no deposit bonuses from casinos that he can’t withdraw or, for example, with maximum payout .
But as far as I know, there are a lot of people who practice such schemes, especially in the Europe and USA. For example, you can see 10k euros on the balance of a streamer, but he can withdraw only 500.
Other streamers use another way, much smarter one – they all play with their deposits, but with one liiiiiiitle exception – they always spin with BONUSES. And actually not just bonuses, but the HUGE BONUS, which is inaccessible to mere mortals, how do you like bonuses of 200% with a wagering requirement of 20x up to 1000 euros for a stream? Fairy tale? No! Reality!
If you want you may count the money that streamer can get in such case, he plays with it near zero, or sometimes even reels in small profit, that’s why we always see big bets, and a person sitting 8 hours every day, staying the winner. Remember – if you will play like this, but with real money, you will be really fucked, or rather, even so – if streamers played without bonuses but with the same balances, they could hardly cover losses from earnings on affiliate programs.
I like streams with real ludomaniacs playing, even with bonuses, but usually ludomaniacs don’t play for a long time, because they can’t control themselves and in tilt they simply drain all their money, and so the most profitable streamers are those for which it’s just a routine job, essentially no different from a reality show.
So, if you want to play in profit – become a top streamer, but don’t think that without bonuses you can play the same as these streamers, you will lose all your money in a blink of an eye.
P.S. I personally have not watched any stream for a long time, except for several top-streams, I don’t know why, but I can’t refuse watching such a spectacles, it’s like playing it myself, and the funniest thing is that I’m genuinely happy when a person is lucky or when there are 2 scatters and I’m waiting him to get the third one. I often catch myself on such thought, and I can’t learn to cheer against, even though in the chat I always write the opposite and people think I’m not trolling.
