The other day, I was crossing through abandoned land and came across a pyramid...I went in and it was a casino, full of roulette wheels and zyngo machines, sea hunt machines, etc.

Most of them were switched off, but a few 7 Up machines were still functioning. I had a go, imagining the owner had just never cleared them up and that there would be no payouts.

After an hour, I was 200L richer!

So, these machines obviously DO pay out..so I guess gambling isn't that illegal on SL?

Think I'll go back there later :D

Unskilled gaming is definitely banned. You can review the rules here: SL Wiki: Wagering in Second Life

Policing is very successful, non-compliant games stick out like a sore-thumb to LL. My experience suggests that the machines you used will be returned (and any penalties applied) in fairly short order.

I find it unlikely that you'd suffer penalty for using them, since it's not (typically) possible for you to test compliance status. This may not hold up forever, especially if you're intent on finding new gaming opportunities.

Accomplishing a payout is not the same as accomplishing it within the rules.
