    Some YouTubers have actually turned it into a business and their main job. They are making money off YouTube ad revenue, superchats, Patreon subscribers, selling things in a store, etc. It's a risky venture for sure and something I wouldn't do.

    Patreon is a website platform where people can "subscribe to your content" on a monthly basis for a membership fee. For each level they subscribe, it enable certain benefits. Most levels start at $1 or $2 per month and can go up from that.

    You cannot create enough "winning" content and earn a living doing slot videos. You could make $200k a year and you'll still be broke.

    But it then again, Tesla is burning cash, and Elon is rich from it, and PayPal.

    You are correct, they are not making enough to cover their gambling expenses and would be crazy to think they would. However, they are making some supplemental income.

    Iím actually taking a sabbatical from gambling right now because I have no desire to play slots or roulette despite being up $200. I guess Iím not a serious gambling addict.

    I also think making a living as a professional slots machine player is a questionable choice. I would need funding for that. Many of these ďstarsĒ are playing with donations and ad revenue.

    Agree with you 100% moto. Play for fun with the extra money you have. I've been saving a few small bonuses from work, any refund or extra cash or check that comes in the mail, it goes straight in the vacation saving account for another enjoyable trip. I want a worry free trip.

    For the past couple of weeks (I go weekly) I stopped "chasing the handpay" and went back to my low roller ways. So, guess what? Yesterday, for example I played 6 hours and came home $63 ahead.

    I'm still gonna watch Youtube....but I'll quote my husband....and ask "And how much did it cost you to win $2000?"....lol
    I took your advice. Last Wednesday I didn't feel like going to the bank to get the slotting bankroll for that day so I told the wife, "Let's just go and have the comped buffets, gamble what we have in our wallet and come home". She was all for that as she is not the biggest gambling fan in the world.

    To make a longer story short, we did just that and I'll tell you that I had a very enjoyable time just low rolling to the tune of 30 cent to 50 cent bets. I got numerous bonuses and some really good line hits. On one bonus I won $75.00 on a 30 cent bet. We came home small-time winners (50 bucks ahead) but the best part was the lessened stress factor and the absent anger that often accompanies a losing session down the walk of shame.

    Right now I'm thinking that I'll revert to low rolling for the rest of my old age and just go for the commradery, food and free beverages that most patrons I observe seem to be doing.

    The question is: how long will there be low bet capable machines. Everything seems to be inching toward 88 cent and $1 minimums - where does it go from there?. Many seniors have disappeared from our Local casino's floors. Reason? - death, frustration or just sheer unaffordability. Soon, the low bettors may be as extinct as the dinosaurs - priced out of existence.
