  • Paid tournaments - Are they illegal?

    I have been wanting to host a HUGE spleef tournament for all my spleef fans.
    I was considering having a ticket of lets say 10 WLS, which would contribute to the prizes. (I cant afford giving away 100+ of my own WLS, but I also want to do something nice for the spleef fans.)
    With 10 teams participating, the prizes would be:
    1st - 50 WLS
    2nd - 30 WLS
    3rd - 20 WLS

    Would this be illegal?
    It seems like "betting for a chance to win". But, it takes skill, not really an RNG chance like casino betting. You have to actually be good at spleefing to win. I don't see this as a "chance", if you're the best spleefer, you're the winner. If you paid for the best items to spleef with, you will be better than others. I could make it more fair by only allowing a set of specified clothes.

    Let me know what you think, is this illegal? Please share so a staff member can reply to this.

      It's technically asking for payment to have a chance to win even tho those payments are used to pay the prize.. So it's not allowed.

        It's betting. I remember seeing Gatello curse players who is doing tournaments but has to pay to enter.

          Hi! To answer your question, yes it is illegal and is considered a Pay-to-Win or Betting which are both against the rules and will result in a permanent ban once caught.

          You may message me or another staff member if you have any further questions.
