Bill Perkins to open India-based streaming house


Online streamer and respected community entity Bill Perkins is well-known for hosting a poker-centric show on his Twitch channel called ‘The Thirst Lounge’. The show focusses primarily on poker and everything concerning the mind sport. Many accomplished online players like Jamie Staples and Jeff Gross feature in the show from time to time.

Perkins is also known to offer prop bets to poker players which are usually aimed at losing weight, healthy living, etc. Jamie Staples and his brother Matt Staples accepted Perkins’ weight loss challenge and subsequently earned $100k. Jamie Kerstetter, another known poker player, recently accepted Perkins’ prop bet to eat vegan food only for a year.

Perkins, a couple days ago, tweeted from his Twitter account ‘Bill Perkins (Guy)’ that he is looking for players based in India who also regularly stream on their games online. Here’s his full tweet for you to read:

The idea of an India-based streaming house as a counterpart to Perkins’ already existing Thirst Lounge is an exciting development. Perkins’ has opened opportunities for streaming online video content for the Indian scenario.
