The only problem? It was all illegal casinos that were behind the growth. As a result — and after some controversy surrounding a streamer conning people out of money — Twitch banned the livestreams. But the company did allow for licensed and legal operators to be able to stream.

And now, the first licensed and legal operator is doing just that.

PlayStar Casino, which operates in New Jersey, has teamed up with SGG to offer — as of now — three online casino livestreams each week.
