YouTube and Real Money Slot Machine Jackpots
Whether you like to play real money slots at a land-based casino or online at one of any number of internet slot machine gambling sites, the ultimate dream is walking away with a six or even seven-figure jackpot. It happens all the time in real money gambling towns such as Las Vegas, Atlantic City and even Biloxi, Mississippi and YouTube might be changing the way that players can extend their betting bankroll even when they lose on the machines.
According to a recent post on Forbes.com by historian David G. Schwartz , YouTube videos of people just playing real money slots continue to attract more and more attention from the viewing public. From the player’s standpoint, YouTube also offers an opportunity to make money from your videos even if it turned out to be a losing effort on the casino floor.
Two of the easiest and most popular ways to make money from your slot machine videos is through actual advertisements and in the case of live streams, Super Chats. The Super Chat feature lets viewers send money to video creators directly through YouTube by having their message pinned to the chat and displayed in a different color. The most successful video producers can leverage their popularity with tour dates, guest appearances, and custom merchandise.
Miran Maric is mentioned in this post along with his wife who is known to YouTube viewers as “Lady Luck”. The couple has been playing real money slots for the last four years. After posting a few videos of their exploits, they decided to create the Lady Luck HQ channel a few months back because of the positive response they received from YouTube viewers.
Maric was quoted as saying, “We love the engagement with other slot players from around the world. It’s a massive community that is often taboo due to the nature of the game. We like sharing our experiences.
The couples’ popularity is still on the rise with roughly 10,000 followers, but they are not considered to be at the upper echelon of YouTube video producers. Maric estimated that his wife spends anywhere from five to 10 hours a week working on her Lady Luck HQ channel. They both have full-time jobs in outside industries that still occupy most of their time.
This couples’ rise to fame on YouTube was kickstarted when Lady Luck posted a video of her winning an $18,088 slot machine jackpot playing a Rio Dreams machine at Wynn Las Vegas. In fewer than seven minutes, the video received more than 1.1 million views according to the Forbes report.
One of the contributing factors is the appearance and personality of the people actually producing the videos, but when it comes to playing slot machines, players also love to see other players hitting it big.
The rise in popularity of YouTube slot machine channels tends to contradict conventional views that the younger generation is moving away from traditional slot machines. Yet, play on machines such as Wheel or Fortune, Double Diamond Deluxe and Chili Chili Fire attract the most attention. None are skill based, just highly colorful and entertaining.
