Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, the popular streamer and recent Kick contract signee, found himself at the center of controversy after being reportedly removed from a Montreal casino due to a province-wide gambling ban. This ban apparently stems from a “clickbait” article published in 2022.

According to reports, xQc was spending time with his family at the casino when security intervened and escorted him out. In a tweet, he expressed his disbelief and frustration, stating, “Security came and dragged me out in front of everyone because of a 2022 radio Canada clickbait article.”

Later, on his stream, xQc went into more detail, sharing his conversation with the casino staff and expressing his frustration at being banned from all gambling activities in the entire province. The staff reportedly cited a 2022 article as the basis for his ban. The article in question refers to xQc as someone “who has a gambling addiction by his own admission.”

Despite the ban, it seems that xQc won’t have to worry about it for long, as there are indications that he may be relocating to Miami in the near future. Adin Ross seemingly leaked the information on stream, suggesting that xQc’s move to Miami is all but confirmed.

This incident has sparked discussions about xQc’s gambling activities and the impact of his wealth on his lifestyle. Furthermore, it raises questions about the legal repercussions of gambling in different jurisdictions and the potential effects on individuals’ personal and professional lives.

It remains to be seen how xQc will navigate this situation as he continues to build his brand and expand his influence in the gaming and streaming world.
