GUILTY! Huge Child Gambling Youtube Scandal Ends In Massive $100K+ Punishment

GUILTY! Huge Child Gambling Youtube Scandal Ends In Massive $100K+ Punishment

dick’Sup you beautiful bastards
hope you’re having a fantastic Tuesday!
Welcome back to the Philip DeFranco Show
and let’s just jump into it.
And the first thing I wanna talk about today is big YouTube news.
A big YouTuber by the name of Craig Douglas, otherwise known as NepentheZ
He has over 1.4 million subscribers. He makes FIFA videos.
And well the news today is that he and his business partner have pled guilty to multiple charges
Douglas pled guilty to being an officer of an unlicensed gambling facility
and to a separate charge of advertising illegal gambling.
And Rigby pled guilty to two charges connected to the provision of facilities for gambling
and a third offence to advertising illegal gambling.
And the reason for this was the website FUTGalaxy
the FIFA Ultimate Team Galaxy.
Rigby was the prime mover and Douglas was an advertiser and promoter.
If you’ve never played the game
you have coins, virtual currency
you use those to either buy players off of a market
or you actually buy packs of cards and you get random players.
But what their site did was they allowed people to gamble with those in-game currency coins
but on real life football matches and if you won then you get the coins
and the problem with that is the coins can actually have an exchange rate to real money.
So essentially the way the government saw those FIFA coins was they were the equivalent of a poker chip in a casino.
And on top of this story just being generally interesting to me
because you have a very big, high-profile YouTuber
who gets in trouble with the law, has to pay a massive fine.
Douglas was reportedly fined £91,000. Rigby £164,000.
So on top of all that, this is the first time the UK’s gambling commission has prosecuted people for running an unlicensed gambling website connected to a video game.
The Chief Executive of the Commission saying
“This was one of the most serious cases that has been investigated and prosecuted by the Commission”
“The defendants knew that the site was used by children and that their conduct was illegal, but the turned a blind eye in order to achieve substantial profits”
“The effect on children of online gambling was rightly described by the Court as ‘horrific’ and ‘serious’,”
And they had him pretty slammed on this notion that he was advertising to children
because they play the video in the court where he says,
“You don’t have to be 18 for this, because this is a virtual currency.”
So to the court it was pretty obvious who he was targeting.
So the big news in general that also has a lot of people asking now
well if this happened what does this mean for CSGOLOTTO
you may remember the two big YouTubers that were involved in that scandal
Tom Syndicate, Tmartn.
The last we heard of that Washington’s federal court dismiss the case .
The court said the case didn’t fit the RICO Act that being a federal act against racketeering
and since there was no federal jurisdiction they had to re-file the case
so reportedly the firm that file the lawsuit against Tmartn and also the class action the against Valve said
said “We re-filed it in the State Court in King County, Seattle, against Valve,”
“and we re-filed in Miami-Dade County, Florida, against Trevor Martin and CSGOLotto, because that’s their home state,”
And when there are new updates to this story I’ll try to keep you up to date
And I honestly don’t know how that case will turn out.
I mean even though it’s in a different court system, now we have evidence
People doing these sort of things are going to be held accountable, so are they going to go after everyone
Will that also lead to a rise of people in firms like in the United States that are going after Tmartn and Valve
Validate their confidence and rev up their drive to do this, really we’re just going to have to wait and see though.
And from that I want to share some stuff I love today. And today in awesome, brought to you by the oh god. .
The I survived the Bowling Green Massacre and all I got was this lousy T-shirt, T-shirt
A shirt that I will forever remember the events of that day that never happened
I promised one of the graphics guys that he had free range on whatever the next shirt was so ah. .
Also a fun note all the proceeds from these shirts will go to the Philip DeFranco loves stake fund
which is also a thing that does not exist
And the first bit of awesome, self promo awesome. We posted a bonus video over on
the team was so excited about Stranger Things they wanted to make a video on it so I said sure
So if you’re a fan or you don’t get the fuss go check that out
Then if you were impressed by the Lady Gaga half time show which separately you should just watch
or not if you’re not a Gaga fan but if you are most likely you already saw it so never mind
if you were impressed by the drone behind her, yes there was like the whole controversy of.
Oh was that live was it not
Well more interestingly to me Intel show how they went from 100 drones to 500 drones
they released a whole video on it
it’s really cool and other than it just being pretty
the head of drones at Intel said they are thinking of all different ways they can use them
saying “I see them searching a lost hiker with multiple drones at night with the right payloads looking for them”
“or search and rescue efforts after a landslide when it’s hard to get people on the ground”
Then if you’re a fan of Planet Earth Two and Snapchat rejoice!
BBC World Wide and Snap Ink are teaming up to release several episodes on Snapchat
And these would run parallel to Planet Earth Two premiering on BBC America on Feb. 18
While they say Snapchat series will cover the same content as the full show
these will be 4-6 minutes minisodes
And I will say. One I am a big fan of Planet Earth. I’m also as a creator to see how 4-6 minute episode
will do on Snapchat. It’s a much different medium it makes me wonder will people sit statically
and watch 4-6 minutes on Snapchat a place where people normally go like “skip” “nope” “I’m good” “Okay”
it’s ultimately going to come down to you the consumers the market place
The market place decides if something is valuable, this is either going to turn out to be a genius move
on Snapchat’s part or it’s going to be this weird desperate swing for the fences
as Instagram takes more and more ground from Snapchat
Then we have Netflix releasing a full trailer for Iron Fist, and I am pumped for this
I personally feel that Marvel and Netflix have been killing it so I’m excited for more.
Then in potential awesome Logitech just launched a new webcam that says it shoots 4k has HD R support
will shoot 1080 at 60 frames per second all for under $200
but the reason I’m saying potential awesome is
I’m excited about it but I have yet to see actual video from the product
for everyone that has ever bought a camera you know that there is a difference between 4k and decent 4k
And remember if you want to see the full versions of everything I share, the secret link of the day
anything at all links are always in the description down below
Then in other but positive Youtube news. Fantastic news if you are a Youtuber with over 10 thousand subscribers
If you fit that criteria you will now has access to live streaming to Youtube directly from your phone
If you want to go live go to your Youtube app click the plus, upload or record, click GO LIVE
and while this move is going to be frustrating for the users that are under 10 thousand
maybe 1 to 5 you know early stage guys
do not fret Youtube says they will do a complete roll out eventually
but for now 10 thousand subscribers is the cut off
but that will still put it in the hands of hundreds of thousand of YouTubers
So pair this feature with the new super chat feature
where people pay to be able to get their comment pinned to the top
It’s a potentially a fantasically new revenue source for Youtubers
Then we have another internet person making the news, I’m not going to call this person a YouTuber
I’m imagining at some point you have come across “catch me outside how bout that”
If you’re confused about what the hell I just said and you’re like “are my speakers broke?”
“Did Phil just have an aneurysm”
The thing I’m referencing is a clip from Dr. Phil that went viral that’s this
“catch me outside how bout that”
That girl’s name is Danielle Bregoli
for a little bit now everyone’s been memeing, making parodies of this, songs
And the news today is madam catch me outside and her mother were ejected from a spirit airline flight
TMZ got the footage because of course they did.
And the current versions of events we have around this situation
allegedly Denielle’s mother was trying to put a bag in the over head compartment, it was taking a long time
she might have been struggling with it because she had a cast on her foot
well for some reason that turned into an argument with another women on the plane
Denielle said the other women put her hands on her mom’s throat and then this video happened
“put your hand on my kid again . . . “
“oooooh sh**”
Then after the physical altercation this was recorded
“no one’s asked you f**king wigger. You ought to be black you f**king b****”
Wow! I’ve never heard someone yell out “wigger” since I lived in a trailer park
Although I will say I’m kinda glad she screamed it out cause this guy’s reaction is my favorite
That’s a smile that says different day same bullsh**
Anyway, according to all the reports all three of the women were taken off the plane
and the last reports coming out of this none of the women were arrested
no was charged they are going to leave it to the lawyers
but reports are coming out that the women now are banned from spirit airlines
Then let’s do a bunch of garbage news really quick. First up a lot places are talking about
Oh my God that Cheeto that looks like Harambe just sold for around a hundred thousand
Sepcifically was on Ebay with the winning bid round $99,900.00 and . . .
No, I don’t care this is either completely fake and people are doing fake bids
or someone completely hates money and that’s fine, throwing the story in the garbage
Then people kept sending me stories about how a guy by the name of Bryan Ray has over $80,000 to look like Britney Spears
Let’s look at it
nailed it
no, obviously I’m joking, but I will say there is this one picture I’m like ooh
from really far away if I was drunk that kinda looks like Britney Spears
Otherwise, pretty much in every other picture it looks like you paid $80,000+ to accidentally look like Justin Bieber
if Justin Bieber got punched in the mouth
But whatever your body your life you do you
Then we got the new that Vizio is having to pay $2.2 million in penalty fees
This because it turns out Vizio was secretly collecting customer data
and the reason for this is there was a lawsuit around Vizio smart interactivity feature
a feature they said “enables program offers and suggestion”
but what it actually did was track and record viewing data second by second
and the TV settings provided no information that it was actually doing that
one of the biggest privacy issues is that it tracked your IP
and so that information would pass thorough a data aggregator
and people could see what you were doing from TV to your phone to any other device
and using that the began selling target data in 2016
and what I’ll say is that while some of you are shocked that your TV is watching you
that’s not actually why Vizio got in trouble, Vizio got in trouble because there was not enough disclosure
for example, I mean, we have reports from 2015 where
“Samsung’s privacy policy allows it to record and share audio recordings from its Voice Recognition feature with advertisers”
and so think of this as a reminder that although all the devices that you like
that make your world easier a lot of them are keeping tabs on you
for a lot of companies yes you are the customer but you are also the product
And then let’s talk about everyone’s favorite two topics politics and lies
The first bit is remember how all those cites and people were saying
that Donald Trump turned off the recorder when he called Putin
There were so many articles there was the one tweet that had over 73,000 retweets
“They. Turned. Off. The. Recording. When. He. Called. Putin.”
“If Obama had done this the GOP would have had him tried for treason.”
“Foreign policy insider: ‘No readout of Trump-Putin call because White House turned off recording’ ”
Horrified how could this happened that’s frightening there have been all these accusations that
Trump and Putin they’re in cahoots, now he’s turning the tape recorder off. This is it, this is the evidence
Well, it turns out. No. That’s not what happened, so the question becomes how did this spread
Well it appears that all of this stemmed from the Vice President of the American Foreign Policy Counsel
He was on a panel counsel discussion Russia and Turkey and he said this
“You always look for the readout of the phone call, whatever it is”
“Did you guys notice there was no American readout of the phone call?”
“There was none.”
“They turned the tape recorder off.”
but here’s the thing that’s not true, while it was very short there was an official readout from the White House release
Okay there’s that but obviously this guys knows that the White House’s recorder was turned off he wouldn’t just say that
But when he was asked about he said quote
“It was conjecture, not direct knowledge. But it’s a good question to pose to White House, no?”
also saying to another source
“I don’t know for a fact that they turned if off. Was merely saying it was curious that a recording didn’t seem to exist”
and I have to ask are you sure that’s what you meant
because once again your quote is
“Did you guys notice there was no American readout of the phone call? There was none. They turned the tape recorder off.”
Seem like that statement had a different intent.
Also I want to like to ask if there are actual recordings of this calls in the first place
the White House responded
“How these meetings are conducted is classified”
But the main thing is he said it he was trusted by many and this story just took off
Raw Story throwing out an article with a headline
“No readout of Trump-Putin call because White House turned off recording”
and that story gets massive traction all the other places start picking it up, posting headlines
and that story just continued until a few conservative sites were like hey how do you
one, know that there is a recorder in the room two, you know it was on the first place and three that it was turned off
and then everyone started to pull back a little, Raw Story changed their headline to
“Foreign policy insider: ‘Curious’ that White House didn’t publish detailed readout of Trump-Putin call’”
but like all fake news or misleading news or news that turns out to be false in some way
even though that was not the original intent
more people will probably know the fake story rather than the true story
so there was that but on the other end you have of course have Donald Trump saying that the
news does not cover terror attacks. During his speech yesterday President Trump said this
Radical Islamic Terrorist are determined to strike our homeland . . . .as they did on 9/11
as they did from Boston to Orlando . . . to San Bernardino
and all across Europe you’ve seen what happened in Paris and Nice
all over Europe it’s happening
it’s gotten to a point where it’s not being reported
and in many cases the very very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it
they have they’re reasons and you understand them
and so that was a confusing statement to me because whether it be CNN, Fox News, any other guys on TV
anyone online, when any terror attack breaks out. Boom it’s written about. Boom 24/7 coverage
cause they got to fill it somehow. That doesn’t seem to make sense.
And so then later Press Secretary Sean Spicer clarified saying
“Terrorist attacks aren’t exactly covered to a degree on which they should be.”
adding they would release a list of examples, and then so then later that night the White House released a list of 78
“78 attacks they describes as ‘executed or inspired by’ ISIS.”
The White House adding “most of the incidents didn’t get adequate media coverage.”
though they did not specify which ones. And the list was kinda confusing because it included things like
San Bernardino massively cover. The Charlie Hebdo attacks, massively covered, the attack in Nice
and the list of the larger attacks goes on, there are also smaller attacks, but really all you have to do
go to Google and type in whatever is listed. Derbent Russia Decembe, 2015
New Times cover it, BBC covered it RT covered it Telegraph covered it, even the fu**ing Daily Mail covered it
Istanbul Turkey March, 2016, the Guardian, CNN, BBC, the ______
and you can yourself, don’t take my word for it. Some people say they just watch me, feel free to fact check
And so this list has sparked a new debate and a new defense,
some believe that if the White House released a list of 78 including San Bernardino
because there’s going to be too much information, he’s driving this list of 78 which are going to keep reports
busy the Senate just confirmed De Vos for Secretary of Education, we got travel ban arguments and updates
it’s just overwhelms the media or there’s a different argument and defense of Donald Trump doing that
and that is that they are playing 4D chess, that Kellyanne Conway specifically said the Bowling Green Massacre
so people would called her out that it was fake, she would plant the seed that the media doesn’t cover
terrorist attacks even though it was on something that didn’t happen. Donald Trump would then double down
that the media doesn’t report on these things so then the media would go yes we do, prove it
and then the White House could release a list of terrorist attacks that makes the world look scary
and that there is a need for a Travel Ban, that they knew they would be called out so they would use this
as an example to say look at all the terrorism, and I got to say my opinion doesn’t matter here
this is one of those subjects that people are locked into their belief here
I personally believe that people are giving him far too much credit on this, but that’s just mine
And of course as always remember this is the Phillip Defranco show.
It’s not just a show it’s also a conversation and so whether it be on this story or the first story
I’d love to know what you’re thinking today, so let me know those thoughts in the comments down below

100 thoughts on “GUILTY! Huge Child Gambling Youtube Scandal Ends In Massive $100K+ Punishment”

  1. Trump has a history of trolling the media and fool them into covering stuff they weren't trying to cover at the time. Also they might be referring on how the media is trying to distance radical Islamist s from the events. example the killings at the gay bar, the media was trying to find some other reason to the killings trying to imply the terrorist was a confused gay person who lashed out even though he yelled Allahu akbar.

  2. ::Looks at the thumbnail:: No Trump: Alright, finally!

    ::Reads the video title:: No Trump: Alright, finally!

    ::Watches video:: Trump sneaked in for views: Jesus Christ, this again?!

  3. YEESSSSS Phil I love these long videos. Please do more longer videos. Touch a little bit on every news sector. Thumbs up so Phil can see!

  4. So is that why Vizio crap kept popping up on my TV when I finally connected it to the internet? It has been disconnected for awhile since I only use my Apple TV and my Xbox.

  5. the MSM doesn't cover the illegal immigration as much as it should be, not as much as the gun violence , next to no reports on good guns, bc it doesn't fit the leftist on gun control, it would be in MSM favor to as many stories on positive things as negative. just as the MSM all the while saying President Trump wasn't going to win over HRC, KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING PHIL.

  6. You should decriminalize weed in the US… you'd stress a lot less and you could cope with the mess around you legally xD

  7. 70 people(mostly teens and kids) were murdered by a christian in norway 6 years ago. the largest mass murder in european history since ww2.

  8. I remember using a tape recorder on my stereos radio to record my favorite songs for my Walkman damn that makes me feel old…..

  9. It's good that the press does not report terrorism! That is what terrorists want, media coverage! They want recognition of their acts in order to further their cause. That is the point of terrorism, cause terror and let the people know who is making them scared! It only works with the help of the news media. If there is less reporting on terrorism then there is less reason for the terrorists to perform their acts of terror.

    The way I see it working is that the media could report on the terrorist act and the devastation etc. but just not report on who committed the act. Focus on the victims, not the people committing the acts of terror.

  10. "… and let's just jump into it!"
    AGAIN?! What if, just this once, we didn't WANT to just jump into it? What if we wanted to take things slow for once, maybe have a candlelit dinner, have a stroll along the beach…

  11. What do you think about the theory that trumps SC pick was told to say that trumps statements were "disheartening" so that he would seem more moderate and the dems would be more likely vote for him?

  12. Step one: tell the media they never cover terrorism
    Step two: media "untrue, look at all the terrorism coverage we have"
    Step three: Trump "look how much terrorism is in the world"

    The media walked right into that one. Quite a brilliant fear mongering technique, I must say, and Didn't cost Trump a dime

  13. After working at eBay as well as my husband I'm not surprised that cheeto was sold for that much, there is a lot more crazier stuff on there to be honest.

  14. Phil, the media covers the story while it's hot, but often doesn't follow through or follow up on the story, as it should be followed up on. For instance, Haiti. The story went well beyond the days the networks had their talent had boots on the ground. They packed up and left. This may be what POTUS was referring to???

  15. How to Live a good life

    1. Always listen is school and never get yourself in trouble

    6. Always be fit and healthy and dont eat junk food

    ✔ Follow these 6 steps to possibly have a very sucessful life 🔱

  16. Third option: There is no master plan, they never thought they would win, they wanted to set up a Trump News network but now they have to play reactionary politics without anyone with experience willing to help them due to the divisive and erratic nature of the campaign. But that's just another theory.

  17. Phil, I love you, love your channel, but can you please do something about the titles? Even though I know there is good content in these, I feel like they are becoming more and more click-baity in the way they are put together.

  18. On the note of using the drones for Search and Rescue I don't see it happening. The ranges that these things would need would be insane, or they would have to be hiked in (which is a pain in the ass). It'd be still simpler and cheaper to use prop aircraft like we do today for SAR.

  19. god i hate when companies relerase a piece of technology which is obviously used for survelance, noivelty or just making a load of money and they say "ooh we think we can use it for helping stranded people on a montain" yeah right, and totally not beating amazon to drone delivery

  20. RE: Vizio. While yes, they would know what shows you're watching on the smart apps (Netflix, YouTube, etc)…. how would they know what you would be watching via Cable, DVR, or gaming consoles? they just connect as an HDMI video input so the smart TV would just see that you were watching on an HDMI input but wouldn't know what you were watching.

  21. cartoonito was hacked could you please do a story about it they took off a lot of their videos it even change their name that used to be called cartoon universe now is putting hacked videos to hack more people

  22. Hey. Not really relevant but why is your last name capitalised like that? 'DeFranco' Is your real name actually capitalised like that or you just chose that for youtube. Lemme guess, 'Defranco' was taken.

  23. I don't want to agree with Trump on this one, but it's hard not to… you even built your current model on exposing media ineffectiveness, lies, and mis-reporting.

    Take your recent video of the four Chicago kids who: abducted, beat, and victimized a mentally handicapped white person — all while yelling "Fuck white people," and "Fuck Trump!" You took the under-reporting of regular media, who was saying this wasn't a hate crime, and called their bluff. I totally agree with you, on this one, and firmly this is a hate crime — especially when you swap the races and roles.

    The media took their sweet time claiming that this wasn't a hate crime, and that it wasn't racially motivated — grossly under-reporting the severity of the crime. They tried to cover everything from the mindset of "children," to the tough times that "kids" these days go through, to even the response that Trump's election has spurred. This happens more often than not, especially when a terror attack happens, and the media is afraid to call it an "act of terrorism."

    1. The Boston bombing was deemed "Not an Act of Terrorism" (

    2. The Nice attack was "Not Tied to Terrorist Networks" (

    3. The Pulse nightclub wasn't targeted because it was a gay club, or because of terrorist intent (

    I could go on, and on, but you have Google, and can append all of your searches with "not terrorism" and find a litany of articles where LEGITIMATE news agencies say that all of these terrorist-involved attacks had no terrorism ties, whatsoever. I firmly believe that this is the "under-reporting" that Trump is talking about: stories that are "downplayed" as if they are actually not terrorist attacks, and reported as such.

    Sure, there are news agencies that take turns calling a spade a spade, but there are just as many news agencies that are willingly, and intentionally, under-reporting these as non-terrorism related.

  24. And people will still deny that racism exists…that ladies mentality(wigger) exists everywhere…like Phil said "Different day Same SHIT"

  25. You guys remember Sandy Hook and that never happened how is bowling green any different.

  26. I don't like how twitter has become the way for politicians to communicate with the world on certain issues. It's reminding me of high school midnight beef… shake my head

  27. Trump is a slimy fucker and seriously incompetent, not sure why media think they need to make shit up to discredit him. Just quote shit he actually say/said and his utterly moronic fucking policies(I mean have anyone actually looked at his budget proposal?).

  28. 1 Trump is a counter puncher. The Left is striking him first with blatant which are then being spread like wildfire. Once everyone's feathers have flippin' fell out and their panties are in a bunch over the lie about Trump someone then calls out the Left's lie but super quick and the lie and the liar are never heard about and from again. Trump's "counter punch" is "harder" than the blow to him. Everyone then covers the counter punch like he flew to my city, and then drove to my location to knock out one of my teeth. See the difference in coverage of the fight? That seems like OUR President and the Media are being held to different standards. Thats Behavior Unbecoming of Americans.

  29. I mean, is it really the question, he just wanted to say that there are a lot of attacks and he's not a very precise talker, it's trump.. but there are a lot of attacks lately and it's scary, closing the border is scary as well, and wars that usa are leading in the east are much scarier, is it really a matter of taking sides and complaining about little things, this is fucked up, please people, help.

  30. You know what's happening so much that it isn't even being reported anymore? Corrupt government ruining lives.

  31. I think what Trump's point was is the amount of hype the terror attacks gets or doesn't. The press reports, but was it front page for day or two or insert on page 18? Example: The Quebec Mosque shootings that where front page for a week in Canada(because it fit with Trudeau's narrative on Islamophobia) VS. London attacks. That were covered but quickly put on back burner. Anyways great video's!! Are you being censored by You Tube?? having $ taken off video's??? love to know.

  32. Meanwhile, DARPA also has drone swarms, but they sound like fucking hellhornets and come out of pylon-mounted pods. GG TERRORISTS

  33. Major news outlets cover Islamic terrorist attacks and white terrorist attacks differently from what I’ve seen, in the attacks in Spain, France and other places across Europe, all I’ve heard was “we need more love” and other lines that are for immigration, I haven’t seen many news sources cover what’s lead to a lot of these attacks, the migrants

  34. While I don't speak for all. My take away from this is very little mention of Islamic terror attacks. It all seems to be, terror attacks, which does not bring home the issue of an ideological religious terrorist organization.

  35. I'll be honest. I had to double check at 5:24, because I thought that guys finger in the first video thumbnail was a dyick. A big stiffy dyick.

  36. We all know Danielle or her MOM started that..her daughter didn't get that way on her own..Her mom is JUST as bad..she pimps out her daughter for money instead of ever getting her crazy child help and HERSELF!!! They better people will sue knowing they have money now..MAYBE..they are flying spirit which is a discount airline.
