Today we’d like to introduce you to Brian Christopher.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Brian. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
When I booked my first trip to Las Vegas, I looked to Youtube to find out what games to play and at which casinos. To my amazement (and shock!), there were videos of people playing slots online! Why would anyone want to watch that? Well apparently I did, and I watched a lot. It encouraged me to try my hand at it too. I only uploaded my videos for fun but spruced them up with intros and outros to make them more enjoyable. After they went viral (for my subscriber base!), I made some more and they too went viral! So I kept up with them and I suppose I did something right because I now get a million views a week!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
A lot of what I have done has been uncharted territory. I had to figure everything out on my own. I would buy film equipment like green screens and lighting – with zero clues how to use them. I even dabbled in 360 videos for a while. The biggest hurdle is finding the time to get everything done, which is why I’m on the hunt for more staff!
BrianGambles.com – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I upload videos daily of me playing slot machines. I also hold events all over the world like meet and greets, slot tournaments, cruises and group slot pulls. I’m super proud in how far we as a channel have come, and how our amazing ‘Rudies’ family has grown. The Rudies is my fan club, and they are just awesomely supportive and positive. They named themselves off of one of my catchphrases ‘Rude!’ (when the slots don’t quite line up how I’d like them. My channel is a bit different in that it’s all about the viewer’s experience.
They’re not literally sitting in the chair playing, but I do my best to make them feel a great part of the experience. I try and be as personal and interactive as I can which is also why I hold so many events. I absolutely LOVE getting face time with them.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
In June my YouTube Channel was shut down without cause. It was ONE day before my 4 week East Coast tour of 8 casinos. Rather than freak out and cancel the tour, I boarded my plane and kept my cool. It all paid off because the next day my channel was back and I was able to live stream and I hit my BIGGEST Jackpot LIVE by hitting $10,000 on Wheel of Fortune (the biggest number on the wheel)!
