Epic's War on "Underage Gambling" Ignites Twitter Hostility

(March 26, 2021 7:40 pm) - Players from around the globe are up in arms over Epic's Fortnite cracking down on youth gambling.

Those on the social media platform began relaying hashtags, “RTP Fortnite” and “Is Fortnite dead?”

This all began when one popular player confirmed he was warned by Epic to stop wagering.

“Won’t be playing or having anything to do with wagers anymore, just got personally messaged by epic and was told to stop or will result in a ban. Recommend others to stop as well, tweeting this so people are aware,” tweeted Fortnite pro Cody "Clix" Conrod Thursday evening.

The website Sportskeeda claims Clix placed a bet with an 11-year-old.

The latest move follows Epic's ban on subscriber-based custom scrims, wherein many streamers organized custom scrims in exchange for subscribers.
