Slot Queen's YouTube videos, bio and net worth.

When most people think of slot streamers and casino YouTubers, they imagine flashy, hyperactive twentysomethings who create melodrama out of thin air and overreact to every win and loss. The heroine of this article is the complete opposite of this.

A mother of three in her mid-forties, Slot Queen is a breath of fresh air in YouTube’s gambling video segment.

She is level-headed. She doesn’t scream at the top of her lungs every time she wins a dollar. She doesn’t always bet the maximum amount of money per spin.

And despite all of this, she is still incredibly popular.

So what is Slot Queen’s story? How did a mother of three teenage boys decide to become a YouTuber? What role did her family play in her career? And what is the secret to her success?

Read on to find out everything you need to know about the one and only SlotQueen.

Who is Slot Queen?

Danielle “Slot Queen” Aragon is an American gambling YouTuber who is best known for her charming personality and no-nonsense approach to slot machine gaming.

Being in her mid-forties and a mother of three, she offers a different, more laid back video product to her fans. 

There’s no loud yelling when the reels align. No obnoxious editing filled with memes. No crazy clickbait titles. No never-ending advertisements for online casinos.

She reacts to her victories and losses like a normal person. Her videos are taken on an iPhone and given minimal editing. She bets reasonable amounts. And she doesn’t feel compelled to shove gambling venue advertisements down her viewers’ throats.

And that’s what makes her special. Slot Queen is just a nickname for Danielle, not some alternate persona or a showman’s mask. This makes her content much more personal and approachable than that of most casino streamers.

Danielle created her current YouTube channel on August 24, 2017. In December of the same year, she released her first hit video. 

The fourteen-minute clip showed her winning 50,415 credits at a Quick Hit slot machine with a max bet. The clip quickly became viral, gaining hundreds of thousands of views. As of today, the video sits at over 775,000 views and is still the most-watched video on her channel.

From that moment onward, Danielle started to win the hearts and minds of thousands of slot machine enthusiasts with her positivity and charisma. 

Danielle is a joy to watch whether she wins or loses. Which explains why she now has over 42,700 subscribers and why eleven of her videos have amassed over 100,000 views.

Slot Queen’s Personal Life & Jobs Before YouTube

Danielle “Slot Queen” Aragon lives in California. She was born on February 26, 1976. She will turn 45 later this month. Danielle is happily married and is the mother of three sons.

Danielle’s career journey is anything but conventional. 

Before starting her popular YouTube account, her professional life was intertwined with finance. After graduating from college, Slot Queen spent a total of 17 years working in the banking industry.

Eventually, however, she had to sacrifice her career to become a stay at home mother and provide the best possible upbringing for her three sons.

Slot Queen’s Family

Danielle’s family plays a vital role in her video making career.

Her husband, who she affectionately calls Slot Hubby, regularly appears in her videos. He is somewhat of an influencer in his own right and even has his very own line of merchandise on the official SQSLOTS website. Despite his obvious talents and charisma, he still maintains full-time employment and is the primary provider for the family.

Danielle’s eldest son is 21 years old. He is a senior at Chico State University, one of the oldest colleges in the California State University system. He is majoring in computer science and programming. At the start of Slot Queen’s career, he helped her build the official SQSLOTS website.

Danielle’s middle son is 19 years old. He is currently a college freshman, although he is yet to ever step on a college campus, having spent all of his time in college learning from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Her youngest son is 18 years old. He is set to graduate high school in 2021.

Slot Queen’s Crohn’s disease

In July, Slot Queen was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, a chronic auto-immune disorder.

The symptoms of Crohn’s disease include strong abdominal pain, fever, abdominal distension, anemia, arthritis, weight loss, and chronic fatigue. 

The exact causes of Crohn’s disease remain unknown to this day, but over half of known cases are related to genetic factors.

Slot Queen’s YouTube Career

Danielle’s YouTube slot streaming story started on August 24, 2017, when she created the Slot Queen YouTube channel.

Before that, she had been a long-time viewer of various slot channels and spent time in land-based casinos in Northern California.

Inspired by her YouTube heroes, Danielle started filming herself playing casino slots and sending the clips to her husband.

After this had been going on for a while, her husband asked her if she ever thought about creating a YouTube channel herself. She said she hadn’t. And that would’ve been the entire story if her kids hadn’t said anything about it.

But, being teenage boys, they decided to comment. They said that Danielle, who was 41 at the time, couldn’t become a YouTuber. She was too old for that.

It was at that precise moment that she and her husband decided to create the Slot Queen YouTube channel to mess with them. 

Together with Slot Hubby, Danielle filmed and uploaded her first video. The pair truly enjoyed the experience of video creation. The two then showed the video to their sons. Seeing it drove the teenagers crazy. Which only sweetened the deal for Danielle and her husband.

The pair decided to continue creating videos, picking up valuable skills such as editing, creating catchy YouTube titles and thumbnails, and capturing high-quality footage along the way.

And success didn’t make her wait long. 

On December 22, 2017, Slot Queen released what would become her most viewed video of all time. 

Entitled “Max Bet Big Win Quick Hit Slot Machine”, the video consists of an unedited fourteen-minute clip of Danielle winning over 50,000 credits on a Quick Hit (Bally) slot machine. 

Up until then, her videos would attract two to four hundred views apiece. This video, however, went on to amass an incredible 775,000 views.

And it was only up from there for Slot Queen. 

Her regular videos were now bringing in thousands of views instead of hundreds, and she managed to produce several semi-viral clips whose view counts measured in the tens of thousands.

The next six-figure video appeared on her channel on April 14, 2018. This time, Danielle was playing the high-volatility Buffalo Gold (Aristocrat) slot machine.

Slot Queen’s Celebrity Friends

Around this time, Danielle started building connections with fellow gambling YouTubers. 

The most prominent person in her social circle is, without a doubt, Brain Christopher (aka BCSlots). Brian is a bona fide superstar in YouTube’s gambling scene. Bob Casino covered Brian’s career extensively in the past, including his investigation of the actions taken by casinos to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the story of how he met his husband.

The pair first met in February 2018, when Slot Queen had less than 2,000 subscribers. Nicknaming themselves the Terrible Twosome, they filmed themselves playing slots together. The video turned out to be a massive success for both of their channels, so they have been making videos on a semi-regular basis ever since.

In addition to internet celebrities, Slot Queen also mingles with “real” celebrities, including famous musicians.

When Blueberi first released the Mixtery Wild slot machine, Danielle got a chance to spin the reels with Sir Mix-a-Lot, a rapper who is most famous for his hit single Baby Got Back. The song spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 music chart and was certified Double Platinum in the USA. 

Slot Queen’s and Sir Mix-a-Lot’s meeting resulted in the following video:
