Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that Roshtein is a core member and a household name of today’s casino streaming elite. The gambling superstar’s main platform is Twitch, where he has amassed over 230,000 loyal followers and a staggering 17,000,000+ video views. Roshtein also often restreams his broadcasts to YouTube, where he has around 50,000 subscribers.
Roshtein is active on Instagram. There, the casino streamer flaunts his rockstar lifestyle and frequent luxury vacations to 42,000+ followers. For the purpose of providing his subscribers with news and updates, Roshtein also runs a Twitter and Facebook account.
The recipe for his success is rather simple. Like most popular Twitch streamers, Roshtein attracts his audience with an over-the-top personality, high audio and video quality, and a consistent streaming schedule.

Humble Beginnings and the Power of Deliberate Effort
The oldest currently-available highlight video on Roshtein’s Twitch account, Winning €5000 and €900 in under 20min, was uploaded to the online platform in 2015. In the highlight, Roshtein shows off one of his first big online casino gambling wins:
To put it mildly, you can easily tell this was one of his early attempts. While all of the elements we’ve come to expect from a Roshtein stream are already there, the video sorely lacks in polish.
The streamer looks a lot less relaxed and his personality is a lot less showman-like. The video and sound quality is also a lot worse than we’d come to expect. And instead of a proper green screen arrangement, we are treated to a simple webcam window in the corner of the screen.
Watching this early highlight helps us appreciate just how much Roshtein has improved in the years since it was made. We can see that his over-the-top personality, showman-like charisma, and devil-may-care attitude are a result of not talent, but deliberate effort. And we can see all of the adjustments that had to be made to get the stream’s video and audio quality just right. If this isn’t a reason to respect Roshtein, we don’t know what is.
Compare that first video with Roshtein’s most popular video, which was uploaded less than a year ago and you’ll see a world of difference. It’s called DogHouse: 93K NO MORE HOMELESS DOGES (where he plays the Dog House slot) and has over 35,000 views on Twitch:
Roshtein Method for Casino Twitch Stardom
Twitch streamer’s success can be traced to several key factors. The most important of these is his loyal and dedicated fanbase. Roshtein calls them his troops. And for a good reason. Thousands of them watch all of his streams and highlights. They actively participate in forum discussions on his website. And they often support their favorite streamer via Twitch donations and by playing online slots through his affiliate links.
Another key reason for Roshtein’s success is his non-stop commitment to the continuous improvement of his product. His progress is easy to see. Take a Roshtein clip from 2016, one from 2017, another from 2018, one from last year, and his most recent one. The differences you will see will be staggering. It’s actually quite inspiring how much better you can get by trying to improve a little every single day.
It also doesn’t hurt that Roshtein has an over-the-top personality and a true love for online casino slots. This makes his content downright addicting. His energy is infectious and its hard not to get excited about the outcome of the next spin.
Like many online personalities, the popular casino streamer also benefits from being a workaholic. He streams for 9-10 hours a day and rarely misses a day of work.
On his Twitch stream, Roshtein plays a wide variety of online slot games. He isn’t tied to a single online casino, either. This means that he is free to switch between platforms to surprise his subscribers with new and interesting slot games.

Where Is Roshtein From?
Unlike many popular anglophone streamers, Roshtein isn’t American, Canadian or a Brit. He’s a Swede. While we can’t tell for sure if he was born there, we know for a fact that Roshtein has lived in Sweden for a long time and still actively resides there.
Every gambling streamer operating out of Sweden has to provide gambling addiction awareness disclaimers in Swedish with a link to stodlinjen.se on his page. If they won’t, they may get into serious trouble. We can see these exact disclaimers both on Roshtein’s Twitch page and his website.
This idea is also supported by his social media posts. A football fan, Roshtein has made several posts relating to the Swedish men’s national football team:
Roshtein Net Worth & Income
Obviously, someone whose Instagram is filled with pictures of luxury travels and a superstar lifestyle earns a lot. But just how much money exactly does Roshtein make? Like most online casino streamers, Roshtein prefers to separate his private and streaming life. But while he doesn’t disclose his net worth and yearly income, it’s not that hard to make an informed guess.
By running Roshtein’s account data through a piece of software that adds up the streamer’s advertising revenue (IgFace Twitch calculator) as well as their user donations, we estimated that the Swedish casino streamer currently makes around $2,700 USD per video on Twitch.
Let’s be conservative and say Roshtein was only to stream 5 days a week. In this case, his Twitch income stats would look something like this:
- Average monthly income: $56,700 USD
- Average yearly income: $680,400 USD
- Avg. income per stream hour: $315 USD
- Avg. income per stream minute: $5.25 USD
Affiliate Deals with Online Casinos
This is not the complete picture, however. As is the case with most Twitch casino streamers, most of Roshtein’s income probably comes from affiliate deals with online gambling venues. And this is where he excels.
As of the time of writing of this article, the Offers section of Roshtein’s website promotes 19 different online casinos. Whenever someone registers and gambles through his affiliate links, Roshtein receives a commission.
While it’s difficult to estimate exactly how much Roshtein makes through these affiliate deals, we can safely assume that his total combined Twitch and affiliate income is well into the millions and that he’s a multi-millionaire.
