TrainwrecksTV is not proud of his Casino streaming on Twitch. In fact, his Slot streaming has made a lot of noise on the internet, and gambling websites have been reaching out to him for sponsorships and promo ads.
TrainwrecksTV pointed out that he only gambles with his own money and that he is not promoting gambling just for the fun of it, but also for the reality of how much money you can actually lose in just a couple of minutes because of betting on bad stakes.
Despite the personality he showcases on-stream, TrainwrecksTV is a renowned philanthropist. Just recently, he’s given away more than half a million dollars after streaming for hours. He regularly posts his updates on Twitter to reach out to his fans and followers for his giveaways.
He’s also made a lot of collaborations with other streamers to generate funds for charity.
Despite being controversial for his aggressive character on-stream, and beyond his now-solved issues regarding his temporary ban for making sexist comments and misogynistic rant against female streamers on Twitch, TrainwrecksTV made the list of Most Watched English-speaking Twitch Streamers from the first quarter of 2022. He stands in Top 2 next to xQc (1st place) and before Asmongold who is in third place.
