A smaller Twitch streamer known as ‘heyitsjoe’ was left stunned during a May 1 live stream, after he won nearly $15,000 while playing a slot machine game. 

Heyitsjoe is known to his 10,000 followers for regularly streaming in the ‘Just Chatting’ section and playing gambling games. His ‘Joe Melon Gambling Experience’ is incredibly popular with followers, and a riff on the immensely popular Joe Rogan Experience.

While viewers are used to seeing him frequent Virtual Casinos, his May 1 broadcast featured an insane level of success, causing the American to dive on the floor to process his win.

Joe’s gambling content is very popular.

While playing ‘Slots’ on May 1, it became obvious that an insanely successful round was about yield thousands of dollars. The exact amount was not determined, with viewers suggesting Joe had won around $8,000.

The total kept climbing however, breaking the $10k mark. It was at this point Joe became visibly stunned. “Is that $14,000?” he asked, in shock. “Is that $14,000?! Oh my god.”

As the total amount won settled on a whopping $14,670, Joe can be seen diving on to the floor in the background of his shot, overwhelmed by his insane winnings.

Despite returning to his setup soon after, Joe was still in shock for the remainder of his broadcast, citing the incredible “luck” that allowed him to win big.

He has since followed up the insane moment with a tweet joking that his soul is leaving him, and also that the broadcast was not sponsored, despite his Twitch channel page featuring a link to the game’s website.

He also confirmed that he has withdrawn all the money he won – unsurprising given the massive total amount.

The awesome clip reiterates the appeal of live streaming: no matter what viewers anticipate or streamers are doing, a truly incredible moment can happen out of nowhere.

Nessa Barrett has been accused of throwing Mads Lewis some shade after hiding comments from fans on Twitter suggesting the two collaborate, but the TikTok star has hit back and claimed nothing was shady about it at all.

Nessa Barrett and Mads Lewis were inseparable once upon a time. The two of them were an unstoppable force, with millions of fans between them across Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.

Unfortunately, it seems like their friendship came to a bitter end after Nessa Barrett stopped following Mads Lewis on social media and deleted the many pictures she had of them posing together.

However, Mads is still following Nessa on Instagram and hasn’t taken down their pictures together, which had led to their fans and followers believing the bitterness is one-sided. Some have even speculated that their falling out might tie into the drama between Nessa and Chase Hudson.

Either way, it seems like something happened between them. Now, Nessa Barrett has been accused of adding more fuel to the fire after many claimed she shaded her ex-best friend once again.

Did Nessa Barrett shade Mads Lewis on Twitter?

Nessa Barrett posted a harmless Tweet stating, “Feature ideas for a song or just curious.” However, many of her followers weren’t sure what she meant and chimed in with countless collaboration suggestions.

A portion of them rummaged through a list of replies she had hidden and discovered Mads Lewis was a common denominator. “Pleasure feature Avani or Mads or Josh,” wrote one fan. “MADS,” and “Madison Lewis,” wrote two others.

Some of them found it a little odd and claimed it was another example of her throwing Mads Lewis some shade.

This prompted Nessa Barrett to respond, saying, “A lot of [people] didn’t know what I meant and were commenting song ideas to my tweet so I liked the first one that I saw was actually giving me feature ideas,” she said.

 “Nothing [about] this was supposed to be shady,” she added. “I just liked the first one that I saw.”

Needless to say, the situation and her response sparked a bit of division on social media.

Some believe there is unquestionable truth in her words, and the whole situation has been blown way out of proportion.

Others claim it’s pretty clear Nessa Barrett wasn’t keen on seeing Mads Lewis name in the suggestions, so she filtered them out.

Either way, it seems like the falling out is still fresh, and they won’t be mending their friendship anytime soon. However, time heals all wounds, and many mutual fans would love to see them reunited once again down the track.
