    Your using suicides as an argument? People watching streamers will kill themselves? I watched Bandit drinks 17 pints and remain standing, it didnt make me want to try it. If someone is in a bad place, especially in the UK, there have a lot of places to reach out to. Doesnt BetFred do an entire tv advert on this? Or am i misremembering that. (Btw im fully supportive of a ban on TV adverts pre-watershed for gambling companies) I cant stop people killing themselves. Also going down this path is dark man, maybe stick to something a bit more jovial.

    Alot of industry in some way has the same thing. Smoking. Drinking. Sport. Fabrication. The list is long. The truth is that online gambling will always be around, there is crypto, VPN, off shore, mutli licences, the list is endless. It will not stop. But you guys are the ones "going after" one of the only people from the industry who is also a player, explains whats happening, tried to help solve it, and gives actual insight into what really happens. Which makes no sense to me.

    I mean this is so flawed i could spend a month replying. The motive is... that i work in gaming so therefore.... what? My interest is in verifying streamers so that... gaming makes more money? You think this matters to anyone but the people who watch and the providers? No. Evolution can buy BTG for 425mil and not bat an eyelid. This has nothing to do with gaming. If i wanted to fix that id greate a global licence with taxation laws that made sense, not a streamer verifying service in my own time on my own dime as somehow this will make the gambling industry HUGELY RICHER! IT wont. It will not no difference to that. But it might stop 1 person from depositing more than they can afford. Or 5 people from signing up at a shady casino. Or 10 people from that extra high bet as they saw a streamer do it. What im trying to do is help people. If you want to be against the ONLY people trying to do something about it then sure. you go ahead and ill be fine. If verifiedstreamer doesnt work then we tried and failed and thats fine. At least we tried to change something. If people are too deluded to thing that possibly someone who works in an industry doesnt like a certain side of it, and as i say a lot if you google me, listen to any podcast ive done, youll know exactly where i am at with this, then fine.

    I mean anybody can say it. But if you actually did youd probably change your opinion. The AA are a trusted brand as they were first. They grew and people took notice. Thats what we are doing. There is no accrediting body for this. We have to build it then take it to the MGA and UKGC and SGA. Thats the plan. We cant do that without having actually done any. We are. I am. Im COO and im absolving the costs into my departments. Once we charge soon the money from that will go towards wages etc. We are financing it. There is no backers. Im financing it personally from our company by using existing staff (KYC, SEO, Website) and i hired one person who im putting without our structure. Without sounding like a dick, there is a lot of money in gaming, and a tiny part of this to "give something back" is the right thing to do. Thats on case by case. If they are pushing a casino who has a history of utter bullshit then sure we will look at it. But affilaites, and it pains me to say this, all advertise mostly the same casinos to the same people. If your have 10 shops next to each other on the high street all selling kitchenware, your gonna do everything you can to get some uniqie brands in your store so people turn up and you make money. Same for streamers i figure, that one casino people havent played on is always going to be pushed. I really hope he does. If hes legit ill take back everything i ever said. But my god we would ask for 4 years of documents. Youve never met trip advisor but they are ok to you? Ive never heard of you... doesnt mean i dont have the time to listen to what your saying. The point here, and ill be blunt, is what you all think doesnt really matter. This is a tiny subsection of the people who watch gambling streams. Most of the people replying are conspiracy loving, problem finding people. And thats fine, be my guest. But nothing we are doing or verifying is in any way even slightly incorrect. We have an accredited team of KYC agents verifying streamers documents. We literally cannot get any better staff to do this. They have full igaming and MGA training and guidance, its as good as it gets. They literally verify documents for a living. If anyone has any questions around this, around the process, wants to come here or come on skype and be part of the process - then the invitiation is open and ill buy you a steak if you come here or spare a couple of hours on skype with my team to guide you through it. However - the negativity is amazing. Its honestly a bit disappointing that the world of watching streamers has come to the point where people are wanting a system that will check the fakes and the bullshitters, and then we create one, and people dont think its legitimate. Noone can work out why its covered by me and my company? Easy. As the affiliation world is full of shite, and noone is doing anything about it. The doping agency who tests olympic athletes came from somewhere. They slowly got approved around the world, that is the same plan for this. We created a verification system as I believe, and many others do, that fake streamers are a stain on the community and the industry. I care more about that that i do about the feelings of the people watching, thats their choice if they want to close their eyes and believe 200k deposits are real. But this affects what i do for a living also. Regulators will clamp down on things soon, or do what they always do, which is not understand something and close it down (look at bonus buys as an example here). If they do that your all fucked. So consider this my attempt at solving a problem before it gets insane, as right now more and more streamers are starting affiliation and pushing casinos, and without something like this, the whole thing comes crashing down at some point once a regulator takes a stance against it. Also - noone has yet grasped the idea that this doesnt make us money. We dont benefit from verifying someone. No links. No sponsorships. Nothing. If we verify say Jimbo, he isnt giving us money for that yet. When he does it wont cover the cost. So whats the purpose of spending money ont he system and the agents if its not "for a good cause"? Say jimbo only streams at videoslots, like Bandit right now, we arent videoslots, we wont benefit from that. This is like someone checking tickets on a bus and you saying he isnt qualified to check tickets and you refuse to show him your ticket. The bus company pays for that person to make sure everyone on the bus has paid for their seat.

    Im about the most credible person in gaming. Seriously you can google me, find podcasts, read articles, im against half of the stances gaming companies take, and even more so against corrupt regulatory decisions. Honestly - if you did some research youd think i was the single best person to do this. If we verify them and they use fake funds the week after then... i mean what can anyone do? You drug test athletes at times, but if they take steroids the day after then wtf are they supposed to do, you just keep testing at random times (as we will do) and we know what casinos mostly have fake funds so we will check those streams before any on MrGreen or Casumo. We dont bend any rules. Were not even charging. Thanks! Id like to think i do. I mean if people just argued some ideas to make it better rather than random unfounded estimates on a secret motive we would bea lot better placed. For sure send me flaws you think you find and we can take a look. When facebook launched was a bag of shit. They fixed things as they went along. Thats the joy of reverifying people. Yes. Google is your friend here. We are speaking to regulators in Q4 this year about trying to get some sort of recognition. I am! ONly as you dont do your research. You have no idea on the credibility of Bernard Arnault... but I would say any high street shop owner or company would. Just as you shop there doesnt mean you know what we has done. I am welsh. I have amazing taste in music. Verified. And thanks for the support. But yes it will take a bit of time, we need to verify the real players, but rememeber, this is designed so the fake players wont verify... as they cant. Then you have quite a clear list! Im not even a part time streamer. I dont stream. This site will be run at a loss - confirmed. See above. But yes partly we will do that. ITs unfair some of the accusations levelled at streamers. But at the same time its catching fakes, growing a base of streamers so the fakes will be outed simply by not being there. A couple of things. We use Jumio (automated tool) which catches a lot of things. Then we match up manually, ask for a live image of the back office, compare every transaction in detail going back quite far. IS it possible to beat the system... maybe? I mean we wont know until we know. Noone knew about Lance armstrong for example. But they would need to get 20 things right perfectly going back MONTHS, and manage to get past the 3 detections we arent telling anyone about, which i find insanely unlikely. Ive changed now. Dont be jealous.

    We created a product knowing full well that the basis behind it was solid. I explained this at some legnth, as its literally impossible for anyone to know 100% what every casino is offering. We checked prime and it looks legit, from the feedback i just got it now has changed from 7 months ago, ive seen 3 streamers (2 who dont want to verify) message me to show me deposits and withdrawals. Im bright as you say, but that also means to know when things can be better. Everything can be improved, always. Its a motto to hold on to as nothing and noone is perfect. Things will need to be adapted over time. If i create the thread first then we will not be the first to do it properly. If someone with affiliation (No offence to Ed, he is a good guy) does it it makes it possibly biased (again, not saying he is). If a casino backs it then of course it can be biased. We had to start it without much input and as fast as we could to beat the new regulations coming soon, as we want to trial this for 3 months then submit to get accreditation from governmental bodies around gaming. Thats always been the plan. We dont have a broken product. We are checking the money, and we do this in all the depth necessary. We have already gone back 7 months with 1 straemer to prove certain aspects of income, and we denied 1 streamer verification also. That part of what we do is clsoe to flawless. The problem we have is we will not know of specific deals casinos have in place that other streamers will have heard about. Thats where the messages and support will come in. I would be naive to say i know everything, i dont, but with people giving us feedback its always helpful. As for me personally, there are over 10,000 casinos in existance. You expect me to know all of them? I would counter that noone can name more than 100. I know there are dodgy casinos, and we of course have a list of casinos we know of that we would not accept any streamers from. But a casino at some point not giving affiliates the right to deposit and giving them fake funds, then changing this decision, shows growth to us. It shows a willingness to change and adapt to the market. If we can verify the funds used were real, from a bank account on VISA, and then spent at the local tesco on a small cashout, thats pretty much legitimate. Especially as we got the wagering and gameplay also. Some things will need adpating over time. Everything changes a bit over time.

    I agree fully. I do the same. Thats why i have so much respect for Paul and Bandit. They go to a lot of legnths for this. But all casinos have a way of doing fake money. We build platforms we know how its done and how easy it is to add funds to any account. Literally every caisno in existance will have this option.

    The problem is casinos wont do this if they do. We go as far as historical bank statements and wallet statements, and we go back a LONG way if we need to, so we can mainly get a good idea of the deals in place and the promotions. The main issue is - if a streamer is paid by CasinoXXX to play on their casino 10 times a month, and they get 10k for this... does that make the gambling free? Thats debatable on all sides. They are paid for their time.. im paid for my time at work, so from that view if they choose to put that money itno making content and gambling then ok. Its a vicious circle though, as then that money is covered by the payments. but from there you can say affiliate income is also a payment of kind. IF someone is paid 12,549 by CasinoXXX but then gambles are losing 12,549 that month... the whole thing was free? Again, thats their job, affiliation is the income source, so they are spending their wages on it. Legally its correct, a payment for exclusivity or promotion from a provider or something (as we all know exists) is within the realms of realism. As they could just keep that money. We are looking for money tht is sent for the purpose of gambling and is uncashoutable from any source. Theres a hat guy in Malta on the seafront. He does deals in winter to keep himself afloat.

    A bunch of people can pick apart anything. The whole point is you are meant to. If there is something wrong we want to know. We dont have 2,000 people watching streams and dealing with affilaites. For what you are suggesting we would need a huge team with constant people knowing every deal ever on casinos. Which just isnt possible. The concerns are around us missing certain casinos or certain deals that could be in place that arent proven. Fine. We are aware now of this casino group and we will check anyone with history on it over 6 months for a deposit proof, and anyone streaming on it now obvisouly we are aware of this. We cannot be flawless. You have a group here of hundreds of people, streamers, viewers, affiliates, who know as a combined entity a lot about this side of the industry. Its by working together that any holes get fixed. Go find another company whose this welcome to input and change. It doesnt exist. It would be insane. Usually streamers have 4-10 casinos they push. We can icnrease how many we ask for proof on, but if we start asking for all streams from all stramers then we wouldnt be able to cope. Up front asking for a specific set of streams will work, as long as people do at times flag things to us of who is abusing certain deals. Doing what we can! But yes always here for any input anyone has. I mean its a licence our platform/integrations works on. We also have MGA accreditation. Primarily right now its MGA heavy. I always said a lot of curacao casinos (as in the websites and businesses) are questionable, the stories you hear are mad, but the licence as a whole isnt a scam. Recently due to government changes in NL there are a lot more tracks in place and requirements on the casinos and platforms. I mean Curacao for me is fine if you want to run a casino in certain markets that are unregulated, but moving into the UK and regulated areas is just stupid.

    youre right it does. Ill send this to my people. Thanks! I mean outside of looking at the game play and the casino shots of this it "could" be a bug of some kind, but its not a bug ive heard of. Its strange. But if he was added funds it would be shown on other games. So just on one game is weird, as that makes no sense. A casino add or glitch would add to all games (I know this as we build the portals) not just DHV. Let me get someone to cehck.

    Im off for 3 hours for a work meeting. Any questions please post here ill reply with quotes when back. Happy to be open with you guys. The 2 i missed - Yes i know bandit. Hes a good guy. That doesnt give me credibility sure but someone asked if i know him. No - we dont send players to casinos. We dont have players. We build platforms and run operations. Think of it as someone put dogshit in your can of coke, and were the people that make the cans. Not the liquid.

    No i do not work for white hat gaming. I dont know of the stream you are referring to sadly. If you have a video let me know and we can look into it but i havent heard or read anything of this online. Did it revert back? Not something i can say ive ever heard of.
