Counter-Strike gambling has been a popular subject in recent days with GSGO Lotto’s link to two YouTube stars came to light. Now, however, the whole story is getting even worse for the unregulated gambling. This time, YouTuber Lewis “PsiSyndicate” Stewart has admitted that a couple of videos showcasing SteamLoto.org were rigged.
While he had disclosed that the videos he made were paid promotion, he had failed to confirm that the results were rigged in his favour. One of the biggest hauls from the rigged outcomes sees PsiSyndicate obtain the sought after Dragon Lore which can demand hundreds of dollars if you wanted to purchase one.
PsiSyndicate also did a response video to what he announced above which you can check out here.
He also shared emails with Eurogamer between SteamLoto when they approached him to make videos with the idea of rigging the results to make for a more exciting video. When PsiSyndicate offered to promote the site officially with the idea of playing the site properly, SteamLotto were not keen on the idea as they didn’t seem to want him to lose.
As part of the rigged results, he was able to bag $3,200 worth of skins for his two videos and . While his videos were misleading, Stewart hopes to make things right by giving away his “winnings” and will be putting up some of his own money towards charity.
