xQc recently experienced the highs and lows of gambling. He sat in disbelief after his over $800,000 in winnings were lost in seconds due to a website crash following his record-setting big win for The Wild Machine.

A French-Canadian streamer xQc sparked outrage after announcing his return to sponsored gambling streams months after admitting to a personal addiction. xQc has faced backlash from the community and fellow content creators since signing a sponsorship deal with Stake. After revealing that his promo code had been used to wager over $119 million, the former Overwatch League pro has sparked a much larger debate about the ethics of sponsored gambling streams.

xQc suffered one of the most devastating losses since returning to gambling content on a late-night stream. xQc won an incredible amount after several comparatively minor wins on a slot machine known as The Wild Machine.

After hitting gold on a single spin, the 26-year-old streamer’s joy grew as his winnings grew to $825,000. xQc saw that he had topped the machine’s record winning amount by over $200,000, and he exclaimed that it was about time he saw a win of this magnitude. However, gambling is a category of extreme highs and lows, and xQc’s exuberance did not last long.

To continue playing, the streamer made the critical error of clicking the refresh button in the upper left corner, but the page only reloaded with an error message.

After a brief pause to process what had just happened, the Twitch star erupted in rage and frustration. xQc thrashed around in his chair, pulling his hair and slamming his desk wildly, almost unable to control himself.

xQc sat down in his chair after his initial outburst of rage and saw a silver lining in the situation.

Despite the fact that the juicer was overtaken in a fit of rage, he eventually accepted the massive loss as a signal to end Stake.
