Casino within MMORPG?

I was reading a old forum post on the WoW community site, and the post talked about how come there is no casino in World of Warcraft.

I am wondering if there is any MMORPG out there has casino related feature?

    A main reason is that many countries, and even different states within countries, prohibit online casinos or gambling of any kind. One of the reasons why the EQ2 and SWG trading card games are not open to players in certain states here in the U.S.

    There is (or was) a single gambling game in Everquest 2. However, it des not exist on their Exchange-enabled servers for legal reasons.  If the in-game money can be exchanged for real money, then it's considered gambling and a whole bunch of laws apply to it. Since there's a gray market for game currencies, I think most companies avoid in-game gambling just to avoid potential legal complications.

  • I had fun gambling in SWG, although I don't know if that's still part of the game.  Darn thing was so rigged though that I stopped.  :)  Interesting idea though.  Too bad governments are so against it when more than enough people are willing and able to take the risk.

    GTA online has casinos.  You can purchase game cash with real life money.  Not sure how that is allowed.

    What law do you think prevents it? Purchasing game currency with real currency is nothing new. Online gambling is nothing new. I don't see why combining the two would somehow be illegal, and I expect any potential issues were researched beforehand by their legal staff.

    Perhaps if the game had a different ESRB rating it would be a different story, but based on the other content in the game it is intended for adult play.

    Entropia online is a casino with an MMORPG wrapped around it. The whole bloody game is a casino :)

    Last I checked 17 years of age = not old enough to gamble.

    Oh that's right, you don't win shit so it isn't gambling its only spending.

    edit: Time for that kind of loophole to be closed IMHO

    Yeah gambling without the payout and real money pay in sounds awesome.  

    Not to mention rating system is meaningless with digital purchases. Not that it meant a lot with in store purchases and rentals.

    I'm sure you know better than the collective legal staff of GTA Online, and that their publicly advertised illegal activity will draw the attention and action of the authorities imminently.

    I would recommend one of the many casino directories available. They collection the reputable casinos and tell you a little about the options on offer to help you make your mind up. There are many portals to select but you are safer sticking to well recognized sites where the owners have survived by giving out helpful information and have built up a reputation for sound advice. A site that only deals with high quality websites can be found here: syndicate casino payout

    I am sure that my advice will be relevant, since many have nothing to do in quarantine, and gambling is cool entertainment and a way to make money, go to https://casinotop.co.nz/casino-land/ and read the review of an excellent online resource for playing in casinos, namely about CasinoLand, this resource has a high rating, popularity in this area, they offer a big bonus for new players, it is convenient and interesting to play there, I advise you there for a long time, see you in the game.
