    Question Question about casinos...

    Let's get straight, I know regular casinos are illegal.

    But what if the currency was invented?

    For example, I create a currency called "Chips," whereas white chips add 5, red chips add 10, blue chips add 20, and so on.

    Would it still be illegal? Technically you're gambling with an invented currency, which in reality doesn't exist.
    (In short, it could be considered as roleplay)

    I'm questioning this because I wanted to have fun with friends without risking our stuff.

    If it isn't pay to play (which is illegal in-game), then it is technically legal. Paying for the "chips" rather, is indeed illegal.

    To be honest though, if you were to build this... it is up to the moderator who spots this. Chills moderators would just say, "Oh, well as long as you're not betting anything, it's not illegal." Then you have the STRICT ones. If they see this they would definitely make you either destroy the world or they would straight up ban you. Not to scare you though.

    Casino is a betting game.

    If you do /news you can see that Any sort of betting games are illegal and can get you banned.

    This is being in the grey area and could potentially end with a suspension if you are caught doing so. (It's up to the staff member to make the call.)

    Personally I wouldn't take the risk. There are alternative ways on playing these sort of "minigames"

    In general, anything that involves “depositing” a certain amount of funds first in order to win/lose which is classified as “Gambling” is illegal.
    Don’t wait for opportunity. Create it.
