Twitch alternative? Streaming app welcomes gamblers after referral ban

By Tim Poole

Malta-based Time2play, the Kafe Rocks Group-owned online gaming review site, is welcoming gambling streamers after Twitch banned gambling links and referral codes earlier this month.

The site will make clear to viewers how streamers using its platform are funded, and will additionally ask streamers to sign and adhere to a code of conduct.

Time2play was founded in 2021 with the "mission of providing an independent and trustworthy source of information to players."

Tim Tepass, Time2play Chairman, said: “It is an understandable, and inevitable, decision by Twitch. Gambling content should not sit alongside gaming streams that appeal to minors.

"We are offering a dedicated platform that will connect streamers with adult players, who want to be fully informed about online casinos and the games they offer.”

Simon Pilkington, CEO Kafe Rocks Group, commented: “There is clearly a desire for the content the gambling streamers produce, with audiences frequently numbering in the thousands for the most popular channels.

"What we want to do is help ensure it is shown in the right context and to the right people."

Clearly, Kafe Rocks Group is jumping on an opportunity here with Time2play, with there being a significant trend towards casino and gambling streamers of late.

In the August edition of Trafficology, Fruity Slots Founder Josh Green spoke to Gambling Insider's Mariya Savova about the topic, which can be read here. The original interview was broadcast as part of AffiliateCon Virtually Live.

As the future of gambling streaming perhaps hangs in the balance in the near term, the question is: can Time2play and other apps fill the void?
