The Gambling commission in UK is currently in talks with Twitch after a eurogamer investigation two confirmed sties played by streamers were unlicensed.

It was discovered by Eurogamer, adverts for the two unlicensed sites are currently promoted in Twitch, the sites have been advertised by multiple casino streamers in the form of images and links in video descriptions and games from both often streamed in the hugely popular casino game section.

It is illegal for all the online casinos without a license in the Gambling commission to operate in the UK. A spokesperson from the Gambling Commission said, “We do not talk about individual cases but i can explain our approach to unlicensed sites. When illegal gaming websites are brought to our attention we take a number of proportionate steps to protect customers in Britain. This will initially involve assessments of whether the site is actually used by consumers in Britain, and then may include engagement with the site owners, and ultimately working closely with advertising and payment providers to cut off sources of customers and access to funds.

“We are currently working with Twitch to prevent unlicensed sites being advertised on their platform”.

The most popular stream play slots, and can give several thousand viewers at a time even on streams with no commentary.
