Many streamers appear divided on the issue, especially after esports and economics analyst Ollie Ring accused xQc of promoting the game in a dangerous manner on Twitter. In the discussion thread, Ring explains that while he thinks the game can be enjoyed responsibly by most people, he also thinks that having an influencer with a large, young, sensationalist slots audience could be beneficial. harmful. Given that xQc previously criticized the spa meta as “pathetic,” there is something ironic about it becoming the face of a new Twitch controversy.
What are the other issues here? xQc is based in Texas. In Texas, online gambling is strictly prohibited. TX has one of the strictest gambling laws in the United States and it is literally a crime to play slots for real money. What he is doing is literally illegal.

However, Ring isn’t just concerned about xQc viewers. He also expressed concern that xQc could face legal action for its gambling streams. The streamer is based in Texas, a state with incredibly strict laws where online gambling is prohibited and playing slots for real money is a crime. It’s possible that xQc and other game streamers based out of places with similar laws, such as Australia, could end up facing legal repercussions.
While spa streamers like Amouranth have often faced bans and demonetization, gaming streamers could potentially face fines or even jail time if police are involved. For xQc’s part, it looks like the controversial streamer isn’t convinced by these arguments and has no plans to stop their streams anytime soon.

A recent post on his Twitter account confirms his resolve to ignore the drama of the gambling stream and continue doing what he already does. In the tweet, he announces his intention to appear on a game stream for the newlyweds alongside Ludwig Ahgren and Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris before declaring his official response to all questions related to the drama: “Don’t worry no, keep on malding. ” Judging by xQc’s previous patterns of behavior, it looks like he probably won’t change his mind unless Tic or the police get involved.
