The contracts offered by the companies that occupy gambling games for streamers are not known.

Not all have accepted. Among the creators who have recently spoken out against this type of content is Salvatore “Surry” Cinquegrana. During a live on Twitch in which he was a guest of Dario Moccia’s channel, he had said: “If you promote gambling, you are a test of c***o. On Twitch there is a botto of minors who are influenced and quindi non puoi fare una roba del genere. Io ci gioco alle slot, ma non in live. There is a responsibility as a content creator”.
