Twitch Updates Gambling Policy

twitch

Twitch, the popular Amazon streaming platform, has updated it’s policy on gambling following backlash from both viewers and some of their top Twitch streamers, by providing additional information via their blog this week.

The Twitch blog (via Win) shared the following, in part:

As such, starting October 18th we are further tightening our rules to also prohibit any streaming of listed sites that contain slots, roulette, and dice games and are unlicensed in the U.S. or other jurisdictions that offer consumer protections like deposit limits, waiting periods, and age verification systems. This updated policy applies to all global community members, and covers all domain extensions of these sites including free social versions. Linking to these sites in chat is also prohibited.

At launch, prohibited sites will include Stake.com, Rollbit.com, Duelbits.com, and Roobet.com. However, we may identify other sites as we move forward. Any updates will be reflected in the list of prohibited sites in our policy language, so you have a clear source to reference if there is a site you want to stream but are uncertain about. We will continue to allow websites that focus on sports betting, fantasy sports, and poker at this time.

As with all of our policies, your account may receive an enforcement if you stream these prohibited sites.  That said, we know this may be an adjustment for some, and will be levering warnings in addition to suspensions in applicable cases in order to be fairer to streamers who may not have understood the change yet. ”

In a nutshell, Twitch will now “prohibit any streaming of listed sites that contain slots, roulette, and dice games and are unlicensed in the U.S. or other jurisdictions that offer consumer protections like deposit limits, waiting periods, and age verification systems.”
