I like the idea but all we are given is "its a secret" you want us to gamble money on stuff we dont know the risk of getting? I like the fact its "random"  but i would think people should know what they are gambling to get.. Even a Casino shows us what we can possibly get even if its a 0.0001% chance.

Cant speak for other countries but I'm sure the Australian gambling regulatory bodies would find a gambling event targeted primarily at minors highly "interesting" if not blatently illegal........just sayin'

 

There is gambling in almost any free to play game, often in the form of lockboxes/cases opened vie keys for real money. It's not illegal and won't be any time soon.

 

            If stupidity got us in this mess, how come it can't get us out.

The gifts received are random, so the larger gifts aren't associated with how many gifts are processed.

Gaming is lawful if the game is-

There is no such thing as unicum, only degrees of pubbiness.

Star trek Online, CSGO, TF2, payday 2, runescape, League of Legends, infestation ss, just to name some off the top of my head (a few are not free to play but they are usually on sale for $5 so it may aswell be).

Too much over thinking this.  It isn't gambling....  you pay you get.  No odds.  100% "win" every time

Out of curiosity, has anyone got anything worth bragging about in this event? All I hear is small gold packages per present.

As an example, TF2 gets boxes of different rarities and stuff. You pay $$$ for keys to open them and its rng based loot for different weapons and cosmetics.

 

CS:GO is for skins i think with the same sort of system.

 

Borderlands has a skull chest thingy which needs keys to unlock for rare and powerful weapons. You get keys by a) giveaways or b) $$$ (keys alone or included with DLC/Deals)

 

But TF2 fits the pay real moneh for "gambling" in a free to play game.

 

Also in my days with browser based mmorpgs, treasure chests were unlocked with keys which were bought with the premium currency. Recieving wearable stuff that were rare only to the treasure chests.

 

Anyway its common practice and is essentially 0 risk gambling which is not gambling at all. Its paying real money, and receiving a random gift in return from a pool of xxx gifts. You're not going to lose it for nothing, even if its 4 rep kits.

I'm not talking about DLC, each of these has crates you can pay real money to open and have random chances for different items (gambling to get the rare items).

Show the 10 and what they got... bring the screen caps since this sounds like BS to me.  Anecdotal evidence isn't.

I'm sorry but that would be impossible. the simple fact is that for even the lowest amount of gold in the gift shop, getting these "secret santa" gifts is a cheaper option by far. I'm from the AU and it would cost me $7.78 to get 1,250 gold. with 5 gifts from this system, I only need to spend $6.90 (price was 1.38 AU) to get the same worth if not more gold. Even if you get the 100 gold and premium repair kits, each kit is worth 50 gold which is still to the equivalent of the 250 gold as the lowest prize. You simply could not justify that statement in any way if you did the math.

 

As a side note, I actually quite like this as its much more beneficial. I spent $51.06 AU (shame on me lol) and got 9,450G but a worth of 10,500G with the repair kits. By math, the 25,000 gold under my currency in the shop is 174.58G per 1AUD, this came out as 205.64G per 1AUD. over a 12.5% bonus.

In that instance, I'd say if you were looking to get gold and don't want to wait til Christmas day, this is it.
