    Default Gambling

    Don´t you guys think its kinda funny that most of the players of this game are under 18 and still ubisoft is encouraging KIDS to gamble, for example valentine. Everyone wants that ghc... well kids just waste their money and that it they wont get a ghc. Also using ssu´s to drop ghost in jars is gambling cuz people aim for dcs, and anubis greaves. And those drop rates are also super small... Weird that this type of gambling is allowed.

    It makes them a lot of money so it would be dumb for Ubisoft to not take advantage of it.

    This game is 12+ and you're free to gamble or not, that's definitely your choice. Also there are lots of games on PC that you can gamble your stuff on websites, bets in Growtopia like GBC opening are nothing if you compare with other games.

    So their parents would take care of them, right? Why you're so worried lol. It's just a game, you are not putting a money on it.

    Yes i understand that but if you are 12-14 you still may not be capable to understand that it is gambling. And yes there are gambling website for example csgo ones but csgo is pg-16.

    Go to any arcade or carnival and you will see a lot of games kids can play that are based on luck and usually the odds are against them. I would consider a lot of those types of games and activities a gamble.

    Anyway it's honestly up to the parents to guide thier children. If they want to let thier kids play games without supervision or guidance then I think the fault is with them.

    The choice is up to you. If you feel that strongly then don't play the game. If parents feel that strongly then they shouldn't let thier kids play the game.

    As much as people want to label Growtopia a kid's game it's really not. A variety of different people at different ages play the game.

    While "luck" is fundamentally gambling, as long as it's not a direct way approach to the concept, it cannot be considered "gambling." In a game like this, things like golden heart crystals—exclusive items hardly obtainable because of low %—are the ultimate economy integrals.

    Obivously it is legal, it is not real money people are "gambling" with. It is a game currency. Also it can't even be considered gambling...

    Take in mind that there are loads of people who spent money on the hope to get a "high quality item" from any event that involes spending x to get y.

    For instance:
    Easter- Rainbow Egg
    Valentines- Ghc

    Also said items dont have a percentage at which they drop or any hint as to how rare they even are. Just slapping "SUPER RARE" or "RARE" in a descreption does not let it breeze past the legal state.

    Take this for example:
    ROCKET LEAGUE

    A game that is popular to the kiddies that also had "crates" that gave items which could only be opened with keys that could only be obtained through purchasing said keys with money/ or through trading items that were worth keys with other players.

    This entire system had to be changed due to the loot box situation that went on that made it illegal in certain areas around the world.

    You need to see the difference, gems aren't ONLY bought with money. And you're skipping a step here. You payed for gems and you got them no gamble. You then take said gems which are an in game currency and spend them as you please. The money wasn't directly spent on loot boxes that are unobtainable any other way. Lots of differences in this and what you mentioned. Look at trading card games. This always gets brought up. No it's not gambling. Yes it is legal.
