Yesterday, YouTubers, Trevor Martin ('TmarTn') and Tom Cassell ('ProSyndicate') were revealed as the owners of the CSGO Lotto gambling site that featured in many of their videos. The pair created a number of videos which depicted them using the gambling site and winning CS:GO weapon skins that were worth a substantial amount of money. However, the videos were not marked as promotional material and the two appear to have omitted any information of their affiliation with the gambling site.
“It’s pretty ******* simple… Both these videos are rigged”.
Following this, another YouTuber, PsiSyndicate has admitted that several of his CS:GO weapon skin videos were actually rigged. In the video below, he claims that he was approached Steamloto (another CS:GO gambling site), who provided him with valuable weapon skins to unbox. In his unboxing videos, PsiSyndicate then acted as if they were legitimate wins, giving viewers the impression that the site may be worth visiting.
“I’m not going to do anything like that again in the future. I am going to move myself away from CS:GO because of the temptations for me are too high”.
We cannot be sure how many streamers and YouTubers have been involved in this mess but we will keep you updated if anything new comes to light.
