CasinoGrounds managed to get an interview with FatsoPlays and learn more about him, his love for slots and what inspired his decision to start streaming.
Where are you from?
I’m from Finland.
How old are you?
I am 29 years old.
When did you start gambling?
I started gambling around 14 years ago by placing bets on sports. My first touch with online casinos was about six years ago.
When did you get into slots?
I remember playing slots when I was under ten years old at a local store. This wasn’t illegal back then.
What is your favourite slot machine?
My favourite slot machine of all time has to be Immortal Romance. It’s the only game I feel comfortable saying that I’ve played over million spins on.
IMO it’s one of the smoothest experiences especially on the high variance slots’ side. Smooth gameplay combined with good music and great potential all around makes it a winner.
How did you get your nickname?
I made it up myself when I started streaming. I think the first nickname was something about a beard but I landed at FATSOplays due to it sounding nice.
How did you decide to start streaming?
I’ve been a gamer for as long as I can remember (video games to start things off) and stumbled into Twitch. I enjoyed watching some other folks play so I figured I’d give it a whirl myself as well. I started with playing only video games and after a few months tried out streaming slots. I wasn’t sure at all if I would enjoy streaming slots but it turned out to just enhance the fun I had while playing.
What or Who influenced on your decision to start streaming?
Time. I had too much time on my hands so I decided to give streaming a go and haven’t looked back.
What do you consider the best part of straming slot games?
Best part of streaming slots is the community. You get a lot of support from the viewers which helps out especially when you run into a bad streak
with the slots.
What was the most difficult part of streaming? How did you handle it?
Most difficult stuff for me about streaming was all of the technical stuff to get your stream up and running (and later on modifying it).
Thankfully there is a lot of helpful forums to help the beginners out.
What advice can you give to someone who wants to start streaming?
First of all find something that you like to stream rather than try to pick up something just because it’s popular. Secondly don’t mind the trolls,
they are part of the experience for better or for worse.
Is your awesome beard a good luck charm? And is there a story behind it?
I haven’t thought of it as a good luck charm but some viewers do ask me to stroke it for good luck (can’t hurt I suppose).
It wasn’t a conscious decision to start growing it out at first but after a while I did decide to just leave it be and florish. I’ll probably cut it when I start to feel too old but for now it’ll cover my baby face.
Are you superstitious? And if yes is a there a ritual that you do every time befor you play?
I’m not that superstitious but I have been known to drink a beer to two for good luck.
Is there a msg you would like to give to your followers as well as all the slot game aficionados.
Best of luck!
