Is Youtube Censoring Slot Videos?

Reports that channels featuring slots are being closed.

Online gambling affiliates and slot fans are speculating on the sudden and unannounced actions of Youtube over the weekend in unilaterally closing channels which feature general interest or promotional slot videos.

Popular channels such as Slotjunkies and Gamingslots are included in the shutdowns, which do not appear to have involved any consultation with Youtube members.

Posters on a number of forums report that Youtube has silently changed its terms and conditions to prohibit gaming content although there are also suggestions that it is a negative SEO campaign instigated in India and manifested by reporting multiple videos.

The actions came into effect this weekend and there is also speculation that it has been motivated by concerns about the reactions of countries where gaming is prohibited or not advertised.

Many of those affected by the sudden change of policy say their platform of choice going forward will probably be Vimeo, but the work involved in coping with YoutubeâEURâ„¢s unilateral action is generating a great deal of anger and frustration, especially in the UK, where gambling is strictly regulated and legal.
