Betting / Gambling

#1 Post by Jamiet99uk » Tue Mar 17, 2020 11:10 pm

I didn't know where else to post this so I am posting it here.

Is it permitted to place bets on the outcome of webDip games?

If it is not permitted, is this stated in the rules?

I don't know if it's in the rules but has definitely been ruled against multiple times.

It is not permitted. Common Sense rule. Online gambling is illegal without a license in various places, we do not have one, so no gambling. For non monetary bets like point gambling, having to have the mod team transfer points and police it would be a pain, so also prohibited.

What about betting something outside of the game (say, a pizza)?

Social betting is legal in most places.

I mean, it should be legal to make 20$ bet with a friend of yours about the outcome of a game. But that's a bet between friends, not something that webDip arranges or has anything to do with.
