Twitch is one of the fastest growing streaming platforms and now boasts as many as 9.36M active streamers and a 7-day average of over 2.9M viewers. In fact, viewers have consumed over 110M hours of content on the platform since the start of 2021 with the vast majority of that being gaming content.

Whether it’s DOTA, Fortnite, Call of Duty, or casino games like poker and roulette, there are hundreds of channels streaming daily on the platform.

And with many of these channels and categories setting new records on a monthly basis, it’s little wonder that the platform has attracted the attention of digital and affiliate marketers.  

One of those categories to set three new records in the month of May is the slots category according to a new analysis of the slots category on Twitch.

  • There was an average of 47,421 viewers watching in the slots category — a significant increase on the 30,533 in April, and a lot more than there was for online poker on Twitch.
