Starting your own Twitch Channel

Here is our step by step guide towards your first streaming succes!

Step 1: Invest in the right hardware

They say you got to make money to spend money and this is no exception. That doesn’t mean you have to spend a great deal though! There are a few essentials that require minimal quality, though don’t have to be expensive. For instance, you want a microphone that gives clear sound without any static noise. Also you want to use a headset or earbuds so that you don’t get feedback noise from your speakers. Naturally, another essential is the webcam. Because that is the whole point of streaming. Sometimes these are build into your screen. Just make sure the quality is good enough for 720p stream. Other than those, you want to have an internet connection that lets you stream 720p quality videos without lag. To summarize your ‘starting pack’:

  • Laptop or PC
  • Webcam
  • Microphone
  • Earplugs/headset
  • Good internet connection

Remember that you don’t have to buy the best of the best equipment! Worry about that once you start making money of your stream.

Create a HUD

This is probably the step where most people lose interest. Don’t! We’ll guide you through it. A HUD is the software overlay of your scream. It is what gives your stream a ‘face’. You can design an overlay yourself in different programs, or get an overlay template from the web. I know you are in a rush to get started, so we have created an overlay for you that you can simply install. We do recommend you to create/modify your own HUD later on, since this will personalise your stream.

Let’s start streaming!

Finally, we have everything set up! Now you can start streaming. But ‘simply’ starting a stream and hoping for views isn’t necessarily the right strategy. The key to successful streaming is hitting the front page. This is the main reason why a lot of people streaming big games like League of Legends will eventually fail; they just get buried under thousands of more popular streams! Luckily, streaming slot games is an ideal niche! So for us, it is important to look at the time of streaming. It is better to stream when there is less competition, even if there are also less viewers. At least you will get views from the people that are online. Once they know who you are, you can start streaming prime time.

Get a chatbot

A chat bot, not a view bot. This can’t be stressed enough. A view bot will simply get you banned and all your hard work will be for nothing. A chat bot though helps you keep your chat clean of unwanted spam, insulting language and links. The main reason to use a bot is well, to keep out other bots with bad intentions. Your bot can also regularly post your personal casino bonus in the chat to notify your viewers.

Engage with your audience

People aren’t watching streams because of the game, they are because they want to learn something. So by interacting with your viewers; answering their questions, giving them a warm welcome, sharing emotions, you are giving your viewers what they are looking for and more! Don’t let yourself be tempted into discussions though. When people are being annoying, a mute button can save you a lot of time and trouble.

Be a good friend

If you meet with a friend at 10pm, you don’t want to be waiting for him at the bar until eleven. Consider yourself a friend to your viewers. If you are online at set times, you are more likely to gain a trusted following. People appreciate loyalty!

Be persistent

There are a lot of things that can go wrong when you start streaming. You can have people being disrespectful, you can get a penalty for something you were not aware of and most important of all: you can get stuck with zero or close to zero viewers for a long time. It is key to not give up when you don’t get famous instantly. Try new strategies and keep track of what works and what doesn’t. You can do this with data tracking programs or by rewatching your own stream to see how your audience responds to your actions.

If you scratch our backs, we scratch yours!

Power⚡Slots has access to numerous marketing channels where we can promote your channel by writing articles or sharing your stream. Together we can make your brand as a streamer as well as ours. We have a few guidelines to ensure we are building, instead of hurting our brands:

    • We keep a track on viewers versus subscriptions. For instance: 20k views without any subscriptions gives us the suspicion that you are making use of a viewbot. This will result in a ban from Twitch and will hurt your ambitions to become a streamer.
    • Ensure that you mention in your description that casino games are for mature audiences. In your profile, mark your content ‘mature content’.
    • If you decide to play on a different casino than Power⚡Slots while promoting ours, make sure this casino has licenses from Malta and the UK Gambling Commission.
    • Though we offer streamers deals to play with extra bonus money, we are against unlimited and fictional ‘play funds’. Only stream with real money, not to give a false representation of gambling.
    • Be a part of your stream. Meaning that you should show your face and interact with your viewers. We do not support a channel that only shows slots rolling.

Setting up your Twitch account step by step guide

Let’s go to settings in your profile. It should look something like this:

You can upload a small profile picture that people will see when they look for your stream. Look under ‘Profile Banner’ and upload ‘Profile-banner-image’ from the image folder we provided. Now enter the display name that people will get to know. (optional: enter a short bio text about yourself)

Allright, good job so far! Let’s click ‘channel and videos’ inside settings. Here you can set your offline-screen mode. Under ‘Banner of video player’, upload ‘Offline-screen’ from the image folder we provided:

Go to ‘channel and videos’. Then click Channel as shown here:

Now you see this in your screen:

Check if your profile picture and stream offline banner display correctly. If you scroll down, you can click ‘edit panels’. Let’s try that.

Click on the grey (big + sign) space to add a panel:

Don’t enter a name, instead add the image ‘Bio-header’ from the image folder we provided. In the description, you can write a short description of yourself. Click here:

You will see the following:

You can also add the ‘Socials’ banner image with your social media accounts in another panel if you’d like:

Also take a look at the Sample texts in the download folder. These contain disclaimers for your audience. We recommend adding these to your Bio panels as well.

This step is important! This is how you’re gonna make money. Add another panel and add the image ‘Promotional image 1’. Also add the attached link/Affiliate link you received from us. Every time a viewer clicks on the image, we’ll see that he came from you! The more viewers, click this link and deposit, the more money you make (see the detailed description above). You can also promote the link by posting it in the chat, or having your Chat Bot automatically post it periodically. 

In the ‘creator dashboard’, enter the title and category (Slots) of the first stream you’ll soon be starting. Write something that catches attention, potential viewers will see this!

All set? Click ‘Update Information’

Install Nightbot to prevent spam in your chat. You will find an installation guide in the download folder. Optional: setup command for Nightbot to regularly post your affiliate link in the chat.

Final steps: Setting up the recording

Setting up the streaming software can be quite tricky. We recommend using Streamlabs OBS, as the software is fairly easy to use and has great video instructions.
Go back to Twitch and go to stream tools inside the Creator dashboard. Visit the installation guide for Streamlabs OBS. You can follow the instructions from the guide.

Now to setup your recording software. We highly recommend using the following video tutorial:

It’s time to make your stream a little livelier. We’re going to add an overlay and a couple of useful widgets. You can find references of how your overlay should look and where to place the widgets in the image folder: Sample-main-screen and Main-screen-reference. Click on the plus-sign next to ‘Sources’. Under ‘Standard’, select ‘Image’. Change the name to ‘Overlay’ and click ‘Add Source’. Add the overlay ‘Streaming-overlay’ from the image folder we provided.

Click the plus-sign again and add the widget ‘Sponsor Banner’. Click ‘Add New Source’. Change the width and height to 430 by 240 pixels. Click ‘Add Image’ to add ‘PowerSlots-banner’ from the image folder we provided. You’ll see your image under ‘Placement 1 Images’, with a small Link symbol (see image below). Click the Link symbol and enter the Affiliate link we provided you with. Click ‘Done’ to finalise your Sponsor Banner.

Under the ‘Themes’ tab, search for ‘casino’. You’ll find the Casino widget theme, which is a great theme for beginning casino streamers. Click on it and select the following widgets from the menu:

  • Donation Ticker
  • Chat Box
  • Event List
  • Alert Box


Now that you have collected all the essentials, you only have to drag them to the right places and make them the right sizes. Review the image ‘Main-screen-reference’ and ‘Sample-main-screen’ from the image folder we provided to see where the widgets should fit. Under ‘Sources’, drag the widgets above your overlay, so they are visible on the screen.

If you’d like, you can write something in the top bar of the overlay. We recommend adding your social media and YouTube profile names, but you can also write a short message or anything else. Add another source, click ‘Text (GDI+)’ and write your text.

Now check if all your widgets are in the right place. You can temporarily disable the overlay by clicking the little eye symbol next to it. If you haven’t already, add a Display Capture (your webcam), Audio Input/Output Capture (your microphone) and Window Capture (your internet browser with gameplay) in Widgets. Drag the webcam and browser to the bottom of sources, even below the overlay. If you’re not using a webcam, you can add the PowerSlots-logo image or a personal avatar image or photo.

Before you start playing for real, launch a test stream. Record yourself playing and talking, then stop the stream and watch the recorded video on Twitch. Make adjustments to your settings (often the audio) and test until you’re satisfied with the quality.

If you want to make sure your viewers can directly donate money to your account, follow this guide by Streamlabs.
