YouTube Censoring Slot Videos?

Over the weekend, YouTube took action to close channels related to interest or the promotion of Slot videos.

Well known channels such as Slotjunkies and Gamingslots have been shut down without any notice to YouTube members.

Various forums report posts from members regarding a change in YouTube’s terms and conditions prohibiting gaming content.

We noticed that the terms and conditions were last updated in 2010 so we will see if YouTube makes a statement.

    I remported a video to YouTube that they had on their site - the content was unspeakably violent. The fact that it was real made it even more violent. Yet that video was not pulled off. Here (slots videos on YouTube) - the content is "reel" - I have to wonder...how crooked is THAT...?!?!

    I find all of those "anti-gambling" actions a joke. I earn my money and it's up to me what I'm going to spend it on. If they want to protect kids from gambling addiction then good luck with it, there are gambling advertisements everywhere. They should take into account that we have our own minds and we can think for ourselves...

    I think this is only money related stuff. They're trying to make a profit and force hands, thankfully, there are lots of other alternatives, other than YouTube. I think Dailymotion is one of the best, quick, faster, friendly format. Regarding forbidding slots videos on YouTube, there are a lot more harmfull videos over there than a slot preview video.. so i can guess it's only about money. Oh well, i don't even bother on going on YouTube anymore, they should do a full clean-up and then argue about slots videos.

    I saw this posted on a different forum and i think it sucks. I have seen some really horrible videos posted on you tube and you would think the channel police would go bother them. If people stop using you tube and find some where else to post videos that is more people friendly then what will they do besides lose a lot of money.

    Is that some new rule or what? A lot of people watched videos about slot machines! Youtube is going to be bad, i dont know why they do that? maybe 'cause someone;s getting a lot of money per these videos, there's no the same rules for everyone, or they haven;t any rule? Interesting...

    Typical, international policies, regulations, and the world wide web.. Some money is going from one hand to another, and shit like this happens.. really amazed at the freedom these big companies allow themselves in handling crucial changes like these, there was no notice in most of the channels, i know that for a fact, not that i care, but rather then this being a lot of work for a few souls who had put a load of work in their channels, this is a great opportunity for some! I already heard of "Gamble-Tube" they might get some competition yet, and who knows what that might lead to... T

    Yet I can find some hideously violent video that I'm sure is illegal...? Never really trusted YouTube - a legal liability waiting to happen.

    That's a shame, especially if YouTube pulled the affected videos without giving any notice. Too bad online slots are now being treated as some illicit activity that can't be shown, yet other pastimes popular with gamblers (e.g. blackjack and poker) are still available, from what I can tell.

    There's DAILYMOTION that can serve as a good platform for video. I did post some small video myself exposing some weird patten about online slots. Anyway Since Youtube became Google it's a pain, The force us to USE GOOGLE+ for month even if we say " Don't ask again " Recently the block my option of posting comment without telling me exactly what it was. You receive a email saying that you broke there rules, then you have to get to there FAQ page and turn around like a monkey
