Twitch is planning to prohibit Stake.com streaming and other unauthorised gambling activities
As the debate over Twitch and its acceptance of gambling broadcasts continues, the platform has delivered its first blow. Twitch said in a tweet on Tuesday evening that it would prohibit “streaming of gambling sites that feature slots, roulette, or dice games” in a policy change beginning October 18th.
Importantly, Twitch is not prohibiting all gambling or even all broadcasting of the aforementioned gambling formats. There will be an exception for sports betting, fantasy sports, and poker, while streaming slots, roulette, and dice are only illegal if the websites are not “regulated in the United States or other countries that offer adequate consumer protection.”
