A regularly scheduled Twitch stream will carry more weight this time around.
Ahead of his March 31 airing on the PlayUSA channel, which features Chumba Casino, Anthony F. Cicali III, aka EatAHoagie, announced that all donations raised during the stream will benefit the First Responders Children’s Foundation in this time of the coronavirus outbreak.

Taking to Twitch to help coronavirus efforts
Chumba slots is the regular Tuesday streaming game of choice for Cicali.
Starting at 8:30 p.m. ET, however, the March 31 edition will be a change of pace.
Rather than splitting the donations between the stream team made during the airing, as he usually does, Cicali will forward along funds to the First Responders Children’s Foundation.
The foundation supports families of first responders “who are enduring financial hardship due to the coronavirus outbreak,” according to its website.
“A lot of my friends are police officers, nurses and other first responders and I’ve already seen how much of a stressful struggle this has been,” Cicali said. “Because these people don’t get to stay home. They are on the front lines. So Tuesday night on the PlayUSA Twitch page, I am hosting a charity stream. Any bits or donations I raise that night will go directly to [the charity].”
Cicali will take to Chumba Casino, which features slot titles, blackjack and video poker among its other offerings. The online platform is available to play in most of the United States as the site utilizes sweepstakes laws to create a place where players use Gold Coins to play in hopes of winning Sweeps Coins, which can be exchanged for cash.
