Valve has been forced to take a strong anti-gambling stance with the legal community coming down hard on the Game Publisher. However, the community as a whole definitely seems to be supporting these websites. We see several top Counter-Strike teams and players advertising for these websites. SK Gaming is one such example where multiple players are seen promoting a particular Counter strike Gambling website. There are also several other big streamers who promote gambling on their Twitch streams such as Shroud, Tarik etc.

But the community has been picking up on people like Dazed and Moe when they promote the same websites. One of the most frequented websites in Counter Strike, HLTV also shows advertisements from gambling websites.
