Are game companies following the law on gambling (ones located in the US)

    My definition for gambling is very simple:

    "A real transaction where a fixed price nets a random result."

    A minigame where fake currency is wagered for fake currency is not gambling; it is not a real transaction , because no real currency is spent or gained.

    An auction is not gambling, because it is a fixed result for a random price.

    A cash store where items are purchased is not gambling, because it is a fixed result for a fixed price.
