Skin betting is big the Counter-Strike community. The only problem with it is up until late last year it wasn’t properly regulated. Things escalated quickly when Youtuber TmartN & ProSyndicate were ousted by the gaming community for owning a CSGO skin betting site called CSGO Lotto.
What these two were doing was creating videos for their YouTube channels pretending like they just “found” the site & winning large pots on camera. This is shady because who’s to say there weren’t manipulating the results for their YouTube videos as owners of the site? Even if they spent their own money they’d make it right back from the kids, there were peddling this junk to.
That’s the worse part about this situation. Not only did they lie, but their target demographic was children. They encouraged kids to get into gambling and that can’t go unnoticed. The video at the top of this article is ESPN putting a face to the victims of all this drama. It shows what happens when these kids get addicted to gambling. Below is a video the Gi crew did a few months back discussing this all. Check out and be sure to subscribe to our official YouTube channel by clicking here.
