I need to talk for a bit on skin gambling. To put it short, in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, there are skins to make your weapon look different. They can be traded, and thus, sold. Some of them are worth ridiculous amounts of money (like >€10.000). The past couple of years there has been a rapid growth of websites where you can gamble with these skins. Now, a couple of Youtubers built their own site, and started promoting it on YouTube. However, they did not indicate they were the founders and owner of this website, Csgolotto.com. They acted as if they were a random user that accidentaly found the site. This is of course highly suspect, against the Youtube T&C and many other things. Now, more and more Youtubers are exposed; the videos where they 'test' the site turn out to be rigged.
