Brian Christopher in the casino

My first year in the US, Marco and I lived in the Northern California Bay Area. I would drive to LA every week to audition and take classes for film/TV (yes, 12 hours a week driving!). With New Years just around the corner, we had planned a trip to Vegas – our first time EVER visiting the city. In preparation, I turned to YouTube to find out what casinos to visit and I came across people playing slot machines. At first I thought it was nuts to watch someone else gamble, but within minutes (as I’m sure you can attest), I was engulfed in the world of SLOTS.

Fast forward a year and Marco and I now lived in Los Angeles. I was once again returning to Vegas on a trip with family and it was at this time when I decided that I’d try my hand at filming my play. I never wanted to start a slots channel – in fact I posted my videos on my 7 year old acting channel (that had around 30 subscribers!) as opposed to starting an actual ‘Slots Channel’. I did it merely for the fun and excitement. I kid you not when I say that I had ZERO intentions of going much further with it and little did I know that this action would forever alter my path in life. I don’t think there is a soul on the planet who could have predicted what we have built would become what it is today. But it was the actor and filmmaker inside of me who wanted to change it up a bit from what I was used to watching.

My first videos were kind of lackluster, but the viewers found something unique they liked in them. I never advertised, shared my videos to social media or did any sort of publicity aside from simply publishing them on YouTube. Instead, I allowed them to grow organically. I mean I didn’t plan on my channel succeeding and so I gave it no thought as to whether or not I should share them anyhow.

To my complete shock and surprise, the videos took off! Within 3 months I had 4,349 subscribers and was invited to join the YouTube partner program. It was at this point where it was time for me to make the most important decision of my life. For some reason the world had presented this crazy path for me. Do I follow this non-scheduled journey or let it go and continue on the path of acting which I had been on for the past decade plus. I decided that perhaps I should see where this one may lead. Two and a half years later there was this magical thing called the RUDIES, 65 million views, and a Silver YouTube Play button on my wall. None of it came without a ton of hard work, dedication and sacrifice. I knew nothing about YouTube going in and so I studied hard, took classes, attended conferences, emailed companies and basically started to take charge of my own path. When I started, I couldn’t have told you I’d be where I am today, and I have no clue where I’ll be in a few years. But I will continue on this path and I thank you for joining me on the ride!

Line it up,

    Well done Brian and team you are such fun to watch and enjoy it immensely. I like the way you explain the workings of machines. I watch from Cape Town South Africa. Wish I could join you on a cruise. Wishing you all the biggest jackpots in 2024.

    Hay Broan and Marco, congratulations on your success. I can only play slots online. Like Chumba and Luckyland. Texas does not have any places to play so the closes play in Oklahoma or Louisiana which are still 5-15 hours drive, which I can not do.
    So, anyways O enjoy watching you play and the comments you make. They make my day. CHEERs to your new channel in 2024.

    Enjoy watching you playing Especially when you have pretty much the same reactions as I do when I go to the casino. Hope you have many wins in 2024!

    I was curious too.
    I work in IT and am a Data Junkie/Guru. I am sickened by the amount of Fraud in government contracting and sometimes wonder if trying to post content would be worthwhile. Sadly I am not the least bit photogenic.

    So it is very interesting to read your story. Happy for your success.

    • FlipTheSwitch.com says:

      Thanks Cindy for the comment! As you might know some channels have opted to not show their faces, so it’s not to say you have to be on camera if you pursued it. But it does help to reinforce the connection between the creator and viewer. We appreciate your support!
