    Nah bro, you haven't seen anything yet, when casinos were illegal all sbs and bcs were for only casinos, you would rarely see something else.

    You're right. Almost all the events in this game are basically gambling, not to mention surgeries etc.

    However, player made casinos get banned probably because of the chance of getting scammed along with the possibility of losing huge amounts of one's hard earned wls are very high. We wouldn't want to see any kid committing suicide or anything drastic over this game right

    On the other hand, it's unlikely for players to invest all their wls into stuff like surgery and feel a huge sense of loss if they don't get anything good. (maybe they will, but it's definitely not as bad as losing all ur wls in casino imo).

    These are my thoughts, let me know what yall think!

    apparently banning casinos was a player choice, didnt know that lmao but yeah i dont think casinos should be made legal

    I dont know if it was mention before in this post but here's another somewhat huge reason why casinos should stay unallowed: kids. This game is FULL of them. If a game encourages kids to gamble, then they will grow up with an idea that gambling is good, and if you weren't living under a rock, you'd know that gambling in real life is a big mistake, it ruins lives for some people, like seriously.

    betting and playing csn will get you addicted and you will want to win so badly so you will may even buy dls from other people for real life money so it would waste your money also mods will get spammed about scammers as everyone know there is no trust in this game even trading can get you scammed so imagine betting 50dls vs 50dls and getting scammed how bad can this go you think? also most people who bet in games will bet in real life and lose their money so it should stay illegal

    Don't know if you realised, but this game does encourage gambling.. sort of.

    valentines - using tons of gems to try to get GHC
    surg - using tons of tools to try for bob
    ghost ssu thing - using tons of gijs to get dreamcatcher

    These are only a few notable examples off the top of my head

    All of these match the criteria for gambling - buying for a chance to win

    Yeah, it is like gambling.
    But, that is the point of the game, that is implemented deep into the game, buying valentine packs in hopes to get ghc is gambling, but you know its probably not going to happen, like theres nothing about the packs that encourages you to buy them. Casinos on the other hand would encourage everyone to play. Why farm when you can gamble? Why even play the game if you can get your item of your dreams in 1 minute just going to a local casino? Casinos beat the deep point of growtopia. There's a reason seth made them illegal. There's also issues with trust, people can get scammed.

    I hope everyone who thinks casinos are nothing bad reads this and gets a hang of even a little bit of what i am saying. Cheers

    CASINO IS NOT A GOOD THING IN GROWTOPIA , GLAD THAT THEY HAD MAKE THIS kind of betting game ILLEGAL.
    I have to agree, why are casinos illegal? Its not scamming, but it is better if you can choose to lose your wls or gain wls.
    Than to get randomly scammed or hacked one day.
    I mean the game is labeled that there is immature content, casinos are the least of our problems.

    BTW iv never played casino, i just don't know why it has been labeled as such a bad thing.

    Just no. They won’t make them legal EVER. Seth and hamumu made them illegal for one reason. That reason is SCAMMERS. When they where allowed it happened often the scamming. By my guess u where in a casino and got banned?

It is also nearly impossible to track players' actual ages in order to set a requirement for casinos.

    The rules against casinos were made for a reason. The fact that they used to be legal and now are illegal tells me a lot. There was obviously enough concern going around that they felt they needed to put an end to casinos.

    To be blunt, I think anyone who wants casinos to come back should cut their losses and stop arguing about the rules. They are here for good reason.
    But there is still gambling in Growtopia, Like I mentioned, also Growtopia doesnt have to endorse gambling to allow it. They shouldn't add roulette wheels unless they want gambling.

    This exactly.

    EVERY game has some level of RNG. That isn't betting, that's not a casino.. that's just what games are. That's all Growtopia is. Yes, you have a "chance" to win, technically, sure.. but that is so not even remotely the same to casinos.

    Honestly, I'm surprised they haven't added Lootboxes to the game yet. When you think about it, it'd satisfy those who want gambling back without legalising casinos, and it'd bring crazy profit to Ubisoft. Not that I agree with it, but it would be a smart business move.

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.
    Ummm. I think you must have had a concussion and lost brain cells my dude.

    Business is technically gambling if you look at it from a different perspective.

    Please don’t hate on me it’s my opinion.

    It should remain illegal, it's bad for the community and the main target audience for the game are still young kids.

    The prize system in Growtopia works like gambling
    Woah, I'll have to stop you right there.
    In gambling, you either gain back or lose all.
    While in RNG system in games, you spend currency and STILL get an item, no matter how good or bad it is.
    Gambling is like 70/30 chance of losing it all/gaining double, while RNG systems has 100% chance of getting ITEMS,
    you just have a lower chance of getting the GOOD ones.
    You get nothing from losing the luck portion of gambling.
    I only play 2-3 times every week or so for a few minutes, gonna be hard to find me lol.
