Twitch has Decided to Prohibit The Controversial CSGO Skin Gambling Sponsorships

The ongoing assault on gambling by Twitch continues with the company's announcement that it will prohibit gambling sponsorships for the video game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO).

Twitch has recently revised the conditions of the Community Guidelines that may be found on its website to cover CS: GO skin gambling.

In answer to a user who questioned whether or not skins gambling was permitted on the platform, Twitch responded with, "No, the promotion or sponsorship of skins gambling is prohibited under the terms of our policy."

Twitch 

The concept of betting on CS: GO skins has been around for a long time and is common among streamers and players of the game. Even though just sponsorships are prohibited on the platform now, this may be the first step toward future action against a largely uncontrolled area.

A "new player" recently gained access to a 387 Pattern Blue Gem Karambit skin worth over $100,000.

In a separate incident, one of the most popular streamers in the world, Dr. Disrespect, opened an M9 Bayonet skin called a Doppler made of Factory New Sapphire and estimated to be worth up to $20,000 at the time of its release.
