Odds are, if you’re on social media, you’ll eventually run into an ad for a Mr. Beast casino app or giveaway. But is it legit and safe? The ad will typically show a clip of Mr. Beast seemingly endorsing the gambling app or claiming he’s giving away money or items. However, looks can be deceiving.
Is the Mr. Beast casino app or giveaways safe and legit?
There is no Mr. Beast casino app. He hasn’t sponsored any app, and those that claim otherwise are scams. Making things more confusing, these advertisements typically also use the name of another well-known gambling app in a further attempt to trick you.
Usually, these fake casino apps are part of a phishing scheme. When you sign up, it’ll ask for an initial deposit along with all your personal info. Once you enter it all, the scammers will have everything they need to drain your bank account or steal your identity.
However, Mr. Beast’s likeness isn’t just being used to advertise casino apps. Deepfaked videos of him have been used as part of gift card, phone, and cash giveaway scams as well. Sometimes, these are used with fake news reports or customer testimonials to give legitimacy to the ad.
The best way to avoid these is to never sign up for a giveaway or gambling app online. It’s that simple. Even legitimate giveaways typically harvest data to resell, and gambling of any sort is rigged against the player. However, if you can’t help yourself, then make sure what you’re signing up for is coming from official channels. If Mr. Beast is endorsing something, he will be posting it on his official Twitter, or, if it’s a cross-promotion, it’ll be on an official brand Twitter.
So, no, Mr. Beast hasn’t endorsed any casino apps or giveaways. Any ads that claim otherwise aren’t legit or safe and are only trying to steal your information so they can steal your identity or money.
