Controversial streamer Nick “Nickmercs” Kolcheff recently announced a $10 million deal with Twitch competitor Kick, and it seems that although he It used to beg for LGBTQIA people In order to “leave the children alone”, he does not worry about teaching children how to gamble.
In a recent episode of Kick, Kolchev (who The skin was removed from it call of duty In June (after he made those anti-LGBT comments on social media) he was chatting with his viewers about his new contract. The first question I see is “Nick, do you want to stream gamble”? He then smiles as he angrily chews gum, before exclaiming “Cee Señor!” “Yes, we’re going to run gambling streams,” he explains. We don’t want to do anything bad, but we will certainly gamble. This is part of the contract.”
Kotaku He reached out to Keik and Kolchev to clarify the details of his contract, but did not receive a response in time for publication. However, Andrew Santamaria, president of Cake Strategic Partnerships, Quoting from the post above And stated that “Gamba does not exist [gambling] Clause in the cake contract.
Jake Lackey, who originally shared the clip, then explained: write that Kolchev “besides the cake contract, he also has a stock contract.” Stake is a gambling website owned by Bijan Tehrani and Ed Craven, who are the main backers of Cake along with broadcaster Tyler Faraz Niknam, so Santamaria’s explanation is not entirely honest. Interestingly, in the clip above, Kleshoff suggests that he will be streaming those gambling-related sessions outside of North America, presumably because Stake is banned in the US.
Since its launch a year ago, Kick has consistently attracted some of the biggest streamers in the industry with both Félix “xQc” Lengyel and Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa recently signed deals with Twitch competitor (The transaction value of xQc was 100 million dollarswhile Amouranth never disclosed its official fee.) And while the streaming platform has better revenue sharing options than Twitch, it’s heavily entwined with gambling (Asmongold was revealed a few months ago The site appears to be hard-coded to display gambling on its homepage), and from some problematic figures in the industry, including Adin Ross, who Banned from Twitch in February After broadcasting obscene content
Twitch banned gambling sites Like Stake in 2022, after users expressed concern that prominent streamers were promoting sites to young and impressionable viewers. And although Craven It was announced in June While Kick had “removed the restriction of unnecessary exposure to gambling-related content” and “added the ability to remove all gambling-related streams,” gambling is still clearly a cornerstone of the streaming service — so much so that Kolshev, One of the industry’s leading figures will be hosting gambling streams as part of his new deal.
And don’t forget another new Kik streamer, xQc, once He lost nearly 2 million dollars Thanks to what he called his “addiction” to gambling. But God forbid the kids go to drag, right?
