Gambling on Twitch has become the latest meta, with many popular streamers such as xQc and Trainwreckstv joining in. The fact that several influential streamers have taken up the controversial activity has brought it to the center of a heated discussion.

However, none of this would have been possible if it were not for the streamers leading the way for gambling on Twitch. Similar to other controversial metas such as hot-tub streams or activities like drinking and smoking, gambling too falls in a gray area in the Twitch Terms of Service.

Considering how popular gambling is as an activity, popular streamers winning or losing a ton of money on livestreams is rapidly attracting thousands of viewers.

Adin passed on an offer for $1.6 million just because he got a better offer from another website, displaying how much money streamers get paid to gamble on their Twitch streams.

3) Ludwig

Ludwig is known for occasional poker streams. However, considering how he shot to fame following his 30-day long subathon, he has become an incredibly influential presence on the streaming platform.

Therefore, even if Ludwig streams poker on a couple of occasions, he can still influence thousands of his fans to engage in the activity.

4) Trainwrecks

Trainwrecks has been one of the strongest proponents of gambling on Twitch. He has been actively gambling during his streams and was extremely vocal while defending the activity on the recent H3H3 podcast that was also attended by the likes of xQc, Amouranth and others.

5) xQc

xQc is the perfect example of how gambling on Twitch can go wrong. While the streamer still defends the activity as a way for streamers to earn money, xQc has often rejected gambling on stream, especially after he learned how many fans were using his referral code on these websites.

Disclaimer: These streamers in no way endorse gambling, especially if their audience is underage. They also urge their fans to seek help if they have an addiction.
