Following a multiple-day long controversy surrounding gambling on Twitch, the company has released a statement saying that it will be making a policy update on October 18 which will prohibit gambling sites that include slots, roulette, or dice games that “aren’t licensed either in the US or other jurisdictions” from being streamed on the platform. However, Twitch does state that sites that include sports betting, fantasy sports, and poker will not be affected by these changes.
Along with announcing this new policy, Twitch has also listed a number of sites that will be included in the ban next month, which are Stake, Rollbit, Duelbits, and Roobet. The company has also made it clear that the new policy won’t effect just these sites and that more may be identified in the coming weeks. It also states that more information on the updated Guidelines will be published closer to the date.
