Gaming affiliate sites have begun reporting that YouTube has quietly changed its terms and conditions to prohibit gambling content and have shut down channels as a result.
SlotJunkies and GamingSlots have had their pages shut down without warning, and may have come about because of laws in certain countries where gambling is tightly restricted our outright banned.
Reactions among those in the gambling community have been overwhelmingly negative, as the gaming channels were given no notice and the fact that the changes have been implemented even in areas where gambling is legal. Moving forward sites have indicated that they will begin posting their video to Vimeo as a way to compensate for the loss of their YouTube channels.
It should be noted that Casino Listings operates a YouTube Channel, which was still active as of press time.
