  • Why are Casinos illegal? (And Why they shouldn't be)!

    Hey guys, So I have been thinking for a while, why are Casinos illegal? It really sort of pisses me off as it comes off greedy from growtopia. I get how “Betting” Is illegal in growtopia and therefore, Casinos are illegal. However this entire strand of logic makes no sense! Everything and I mean EVERYTHING in growtopia is betting. Buying seed packs, is betting, Super fireworks are betting, Holiday packs like valentines are betting, even breaking trees are betting, and countless more examples. How is betting only illegal when Ubisoft doesnt profit? Im sure many other people have commented on this but it just seems so foolish to me.

    I guess in a sense, via Ubisoft's way, you are getting something at least, while casinos you can go bust

      First off, while I agree that it shouldn't be illegal, I should point out some things.

      The decision was made by Sethmumu way back then before Ubisoft. If you didn't know, when they announced it, the forums have the most active users at the same time. It was soo topical and controversial.

      They lost a huge portion of the player because of how insanely popular casinos are (the dominant one being FX by SydeFX). The decision was made to prevent losing more players, but has a negative backfire, because since then, the number of players rose a bit for months, then started to decline.

        I mean I guess thats true, But isn't that such a minute difference? You can easily run a casino where you get 1/3 of your bet back anyway.

            Yeah ik, Thought I would just update my opinion and try to revert the change. If the devs could present an actual reason why they are banned, that would be nice.

              So many thousands of players have gotten extremely upset, or quit the game, as a result of casinos (both by being scammed, and simply by losing legitimately) I don't think playing casino is good , plus this game are usually played by underage.

              Buying seed packs, is betting, Super fireworks are betting, Holiday packs like valentines are betting, even breaking trees are betting, and countless more examples. ( Plus I dont think these are betting as it is a normal thing when it comes to online game ) Growtopia is not the only one who sell the packs and you get item randomly .


              CASINO IS NOT A GOOD THING IN GROWTOPIA , GLAD THAT THEY HAD MAKE THIS kind of betting game ILLEGAL.

                Banning casinos was a vote within the GT forums if you can recall. My suggestion is doing another POLL to see the results. In the end it's up to Ubisoft and allowing betting is most likely not going to happen because the game is targeted towards an audience of children.

                  The decision wasn't theirs, WE, THE PLAYERS, voted on a forum poll to ban all casinos in the game. The devs didn't make that decision, they only acted upon it. Gambling will never be allowed in the game as not only would that make child gambling addiction more severe but also it could bring legal action on the company

                    Buddy how is opening valentine packs for a tiny chance of getting rich not gambling? The point is, if you are going to outlaw gambling, dont do so only if you dont profit..

                      If I'm recalling correctly, STYX put tons of pressure on the devs by threatening to step down as a moderator.

                      I'd attribute a part of the banning to community outrage.

                        I believe that casinos are illegal, because game doesn't have any age requirement and casinos are +18 in real life. Just a random opinion.

                            If Growtopia really wants to remove CASINOS, then they should remove "Roulette Wheel" Click image for larger version

                            I think Growtopia just wants people to play casinos but undercover.

                              If casino would be legal, majority of the people would either host casino or gamble to profit instead of massing, farming etc.

                              Everyone will start making their own casinos and it will be like you're in Las Vegas. Everything you will see in the broadcasts are advertising their casinos.

                              This game's goal has been geared towards profiting and once people know how quick to earn wls from casino, they will keep gambling until eventually they lose and start whining.

                              Back when it was still legal, a good amount of people protested against casinos and some would buy access to the popular casino worlds and when the owner was offline, the admin griefs the casino and target the other popular casinos.
