Twitch is the online streaming platform of choice for gamers – mostly due to its simplicity and fabulous user experience – tailored towards the specific needs of gamers.
As a result of building a superb app and website, and leveraging game integrations and APIs to enable developers to integrate twitch into their products – the site is hugely popular with fans of games like Fortnite, DOTA, and Call of Duty, for example.
What most people don’t appreciate is that that platform is also a big hit with online casino players and poker players – looking to win big, hit big jackpots and reach new global audiences while they play slots and poker.
Did you know that of the 250 billion minutes viewed so far in 2020 by the site’s 15 million daily viewers, 21.9 million hours were viewed in the slots category?
It may seem hard to believe – but the truth is that slots streamers are crushing it on Twitch and category traffic is blooming month after month.
Online casino bonuses website CasinoDepositBonus.com audits the slots category on Twitch monthly to see what’s hot, and new in the world of online slots.
