Mizkif, a popular Twitch streamer, has called on Twitch to remove and prohibit gambling content on the platform in the wake of Slikers' recent reports, stating that there are likely to be countless instances like this on the website.
Several Twitch users defy Sliker for allegedly borrowing tens of thousands of dollars from viewers without paying them back in his specified time frame on September 17, 2017. Other prominent streamers, such as Mizkif, the Botez sisters, Lacari, Knut, and others, have all admitted to also lending money to Sliker. Initially claiming that he needed money because he was locked out his bank account, the Twitch streamer later admitted that the money was used to pay off gambling debt
Mizkif appealed to Twitch to remove gambling as an avenue for streaming content on the website following Slikers' admission of guilt, but he remained adamant that nothing had been done.
Mizkif pleaded with Twitch to prohibit fucking gambling for the love of god. I don't know where Sliker came from, but maybe you should just prohibit it already? Like why is this happening on this platform?
Mizkif went on to state that he met with Twitch about the issue of gambling on the platform about four months ago. Although he did not reveal anything further about the meeting, the streamer continued to say that little has been done about it.
Why did I call Twitch four months ago when they wanted to hold a conversation about this, and you guys havent done shit?" Mizkif said. Hundreds of people are probably just like Sliker, except they have no platform.
Mizkif has since become an active opponent of stream gambling content, though he was tempted to take a substantial sponsorship offer. Most recently, the streamer clashed with popular streamer xQc over the issue, and has now publicly called out Twitch for resolving the issue on the platform itself.
