The Big Jackpot
The Big Jackpot is a Youtube channel by Scott Richter, a high roller from Colorado. He’s the owner of several nightclubs today, but back in early 2000, Scott Richter was famously known as the “King of Spam”.
If you ever had a MySpace or Hotmail account, there is a high chance that you crossed paths, involuntarily, with Scott Richter. After several court sentences and a seven-figure compensation payment to Microsoft, he regained popularity on Youtube but this time not through spamming people but as a ‘High Roller’, someone who places large bets on casino games. It starts at $50 and goes all the way up to $1000 per spin at a slot machine like in one of his videos at the Cosmopolitan Casino in Las Vegas. It was at this venue where Scott Richter won $100,000 for placing a $1000 bet on the famous slot ‘Top Dollar’ by IGT.
Besides hitting the casinos across the United States (he often live streams his visits) Scott Richter also boards large cruise ships that have their own casino. As long as there is Wifi available, he even live streams while cruising across the oceans.
Scott Richter doesn’t play a large variety of slot games mainly because there aren’t many slots that offer the type of high roller bets he likes to place on single spins. He’s a big fan of “Black Widow” and he can spend over half an hour or so playing the same slot machine. This can get boring from time to time but just jump ahead in the Youtube video, and it will surely get exciting quickly again. “The Big Jackpot” is undoubtedly one of the most exciting casino channels on Youtube and well worth a subscription. As of today, Scott Richter has over 130K people following him and his high roller life.
Brian Christopher is another Youtube channel with a focus on slot games. He comes across as a nice guy and over 100K follow him and his casino adventures. Unlike Scott Richter, Brian doesn’t place high roller bets on his spins, but as a result, he has a much greater choice of slots to play. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter how much money you place on each spin because think about it; winning $3000 from a $3 is a pretty high multiplier!
There’s a good chance that Brian is also the inventor of Group Pulls, which are regularly hosted in Vegas and elsewhere. Scott Richter also organises them. Group Pulls give players the opportunity to join forces with other players and together increase budget and bets while playing slot games. If 20 people create a pool at $200 pay-in each, the group can play with a $4000 total budget and place higher bets on each spin than they would usually do by themselves.
Group Pulls place up to $75 on each spin, but it’s usually not much higher than that. If the group wins, the machine payout is evenly divided across all members of the pool. If they lose, well, at least you lose altogether. It’s fun!
Last but not least, you should also check out Vegaslowroller, the inventor of slot game videos on Youtube. Vegaslowroller was one of the first channels that posted a summary of his gaming session in videos 2-3 times a week. His videos are about 10-15 minutes long and show everything from free spin rounds to bonus games. He usually cuts out the rounds where nothing happens which is nice as it makes the video much more exciting and you only see the rounds where he hits some nice bonuses. Vegaslowroller also adds comments on everything that happens on the screen in his own unique way. It’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s enjoyable and lets you be part of the whole experience. He built a vast follower base over the years and is the organiser of “Slotcon”, a meet-up for casino enthusiasts like us in Las Vegas. At Slotcon, players from all over the world mingle and do some cool stuff together such as visiting the factory of a slot manufacturer or doing a Group Pull together.
