When watching Brian Christopher play slots, he’ll often reference having made tickets for his live stream, vs. using cash to play, and this is what the question is referencing.
This one’s pretty simple – because the largest bill you can get ahold of is $100, if Brian wants to play starting with $1,000 in a given machine, feeding 10 $100 bills is just dead air on a live stream. Stretched over a dozen machines, this could eliminate about 8-10 minutes of play on every live stream.
And that time estimate presumes it’s not a fussy machine, spitting out a specific $100 because it doesn’t like it, struggling to accept bills and so on. Preparing tickets means one object needs to be fed into the machine. If it takes the ticket, great! If it fights, they can move on faster without having to cash out the partial amount that may have successfully made it in first.
More recently, Brian has been using a new cashless system at Yaamava on some live streams, where he can put the amount into the game via the players card screen, saving even more time vs. making tickets for the stream upfront.
How do they make tickets? If lucky, they may have a casino where the cashiers can take in the cash and quickly print out tickets. When unlucky, that down time feeding machines is done by Brian’s Executive Assistant Raymond, feeding the $100 bills into a machine and then cashing it out as a ticket when it’s the right amount, often $1,000.
This is also the reason why if you participate in a Brian Christopher group pull, you’ll be asked to bring a ticket instead of cash. This reduces the time involved in getting set up, vs. people bringing multiple $100 bills each or (and this happens more often than you’d think) a bunch of smaller bills as their stake in the group pull.
So, it’s a pretty simple reason – Brian wants to keep the focus on the slot play, and not lengthy money in windows during his streams. He does the same for videos, mostly to prepare and ensure the filming time is as productive as possible, but it’s a bit more obvious how he’s doing this during the live streams.
