Make Casino's illegal.

Recommended Posts

Hello UltraNetwork! 

I'd like to tell you a little about a known issue that's been going around the community lately, we've seen so many reports of players getting scammed in casinos.

I'd like to stop this by suggesting a new rule. (not saying it's getting implemented, just saying it's my suggestion)

 

20.0  - Betting and in-game gambling of cash and / or items is not allowed due to the number of scams happening.

  • 20.1 Any player who is participating in a casino / betting their cash in any casino or other game that holds the fact of having to bet in-game cash or items, should not be allowed and is bannable.
  • 20.2 - In the event a player is betting or gambling (asking a player to pay for a chance to win something) should not be allowed.

 

Keep in mind, this is what I think about it. This is in no way connected to UltraNetwork unless it gets approved.

!!THIS IS A SUGGESTION, NOT AN ACTUAL RULE!!

 

I'd love to hear your thoughts about it :D

I agree completely with this suggestion. There are a lot of people that have casino's and more often than not it leads to unnecessary discussion or even worse, scamming.

100% agree with this.  The number of scam complaints has skyrocketed recently, and there really is no no way of policing it.Not to mention the spam from 4-6 people advertising casinos all at once.   I would personally love to see Casino plots removed.

Great suggestion. Not only are practically all the casinos scams - they may give birth to unecessary and unhealthy habits. Gambling is bad mkay. 

Exactly, not only gambling is prohibited in most countries for teenagers, this also encourages the players to start doing it in real life which may cause a huge impact on their lives. Therefor, I want it gone...

Not all casinos are a scam, I open up my casino and it clearly 1/3 of green and 2/3 of red. It just depends on the luck of player. They need to know that going to casinos might be scams. but obviously you can find the good ones. Casinos are all about losing.

This is true, however, the fact of paying someone for a *CHANCE* to win something back shouldn't be allowed in my opinion.

It still should be legal, people play it for fun. People need to know that going to casino that they will lose money or profit some.

If we were to keep it for fun, we'd still have people trying to scam others using any type of casino scam trick.

I personally fail to see how this is going to stop scamming from occurring via gambling.

If a player is scamming another player, then they are completely showing disregard for the server rule against scamming - if we make gambling against the rules, it's not going to stop scammers from completely ignoring the rule about no gambling and still going ahead to do so.

If they don't care about the scamming rule, then they won't care about this rule preventing casinos from being made. Players who are none the wiser or don't know about the rule will continue to participate in casinos/gambling games and lose money.

This is the same as saying video games encourage players to go and cause violence in real life, completely false.

I'm all for coming up with a way to prevent the number of scammings occurring due to gambling, however completely removing them isn't going to solve it.

true a lot of gambling plot island etc are scams but some arent so in my opinion dont think it should be ban and if is it i dont think poeple will stop.

As stated above, Skully will most likely not add the rule, us staff members are probably gonna have to moderate casinos more often if this problem keeps occurring.
