This is a gambling/iGaming YouTube marketing inventory list for 2023, containing 2718 YouTube channels related to iGaming, including their contact details.
The dataset will be most useful for your business if you are or represent a:
- iGaming Project;
- Game Developer;
- Research Company;
Research Goals and Objectives
- Collection of YouTube channels related to gambling topics;
- Popularity evaluation of YouTube channels in the gambling community;
- Formation of a dataset that ranks gambling-related YouTube channels;
- Popularity evaluation of YouTube channel categories in the gambling community.
YouTube channels were collected via open sources using the following search methods:
- Open Google Search;
- Accounts search on YouTube itself;
- YouTube account collection via other social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Discord, Instagram, Twitch, TikTok, and Reddit.
The collected accounts’ popularity was evaluated based on the following metrics:
- Social Blade:
- Total Grade — a visual representation of the "Social Blade Rank" (or SB Rank), based on a particular channel’s rating, compared to the rest of the database;
- Likes Rank — a particular channel’s place in the top YouTube channel chart based on their cumulative number of likes.
The study contains channels that take part in the formation of the gambling community. The study did not specifically collect gambling-only channels. The list includes bloggers and streamers who write about gambling or are known to engage in gambling activities. The collected information does not claim absolute completeness and is intermediate in the planned research cycle.
For the “Conclusions” section, the data is sorted into several groups as can be seen below. For details, see Addendum . In the course of the study, a dataset of 2718 YouTube channels associated with gambling was formed.

For visualization convenience, “Subscriber” numbers are averaged to these values:
- “<10k” — channels with less than 10,000 subscribers;
- “10k - 100k” — channels with over 10,000 but less than 100,000 subscribers;
- “100k - 1m” — channels with over 100,000 but less than 1 million subscribers;
- “>1m” — channels with over 1,000,000 subscribers.
For visualization convenience, “Total Grade2” values are averaged as follows:
- “TBD” — remains the same;
- “D” — concatenates Total Grades with the following values: D+, D;
- “C” — concatenates Total Grades with the following values: C+, C, C-;
- “B” — concatenates Total Grades with the following values: B+, B, B-;
- “A” — concatenates Total Grades with the following values: A++, A+, A, A-.
For visualization convenience, “Video Views” values are averaged as follows:
- “<1m” — channels with less than 1 million views;
- “1m - 10m” — channels with between 1 and 10 million views;
- “10m - 100m” — channels with between 10 and 100 million views;
- “100m - 1b” — channels with between 100 million and 1 billion views;
- “>1b” — channels with over 1 billion views.

- 238 channels do not have a “Total Grade” indicator and are not taken into account during calculations.
1 The metric is derived from a particular channel's 10 most recent public videos. Social Blade designates channel type based on the most frequently used video type.
2The total grade is a visual representation of the "Social Blade Rank" (or SB Rank), based on a particular channel’s ranking, compared to the rest of the database.
