Twitch Introduces Casino Stream Labels

Twitch Introduces Casino Stream Labels

Twitch is one of the most popular streaming platforms around. Recently, the platform’s officials have announced that streams will be getting labels for mature content including sexual themes, swearing, and playing casino games.

After the previous incident with casino streaming, Twitch has taken a new approach to things. These labels won’t change much for casino streamers, but they will warn viewers that the content shown on the stream is mature. The effects will set in after a grace period of 30 days. Some streamers have accepted the changes, while others have expressed their dislikes.

The Labels Are Used to Mark Mature Content

There are all sorts of streamers on Twitch which means they produce various content, but most of it is made up of gaming. There’s also a big part of these streamers that focuses on playing casino games. It’s a secret that a chunk of the revenue of the platform is made due to casino streams.

However, an incident last year caused Twitch officials to make some changes regarding casino streams. Namely, one streamer pleaded for help from his fans and patrons who donated certain sums of money. After a while, the same streamer released a video in which he apologized for spending the donated money on playing casino games. He lied to obtain that money, and this caused outrage among the Twitch community.

Some streamers dedicated themselves to getting the fans’ money back while others pressured Twitch officials to make some policy changes. It didn’t take too long for the officials to announce that casino streams will be accepted if the streams play casino games on sites legalized in the US.

Recently, labels for playing casino games, as mature content, have also been introduced. These are crucial for casino streamers because sponsors can find what they’re looking for in these streamers. It also protects minors and teenagers from viewing these sorts of streams.

Despite the backlash of certain streamers, this is another measure that will take Twitch to the next level and further categorize types of streams.

Conclusion

After the casino streaming incident, Twitch introduced new labels for mature content. They won’t hinder the streamers in any way. Instead, they will help connect them to the right sponsors and the right audience, preventing viewers not of age from accessing those streams. This is just another layer of safety for Twitch casino streamers.
