Gambling is not legal in SL >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Policy_Regarding_Wagering_in_Second_Life  .  No Devil is a skills game, covered by the Skills Gaming Policy >> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Second_Life_Skill_Gaming_Policy

Gaming Residents

  1. Should you wish to participate in Skill Gaming in Second Life, you represent and agree that you: (i) are at least nineteen (19) years of age; (ii) have the legal authority to agree to this Skill Gaming Policy; (iii) reside in, and are accessing a Skill Gaming Region from, a jurisdiction in which participation in Skill Gaming is legally authorized; and (iv) are of legal age to participate in Skill Gaming in your jurisdiction.
  2. In order to enter a Skill Gaming Region, you must establish and maintain a Second Life account with accurate, current and complete information about yourself, including a valid payment method. Any Skill Gaming conducted in a Second Life region that has not been recognized as a Skill Gaming Region is not permitted.
  3. If you fail to satisfy any of these requirements, you are not permitted to enter any Skill Gaming Regions.

Maybe it isn't a legal skill gaming region.  You should probably check that first.

It's a very good question.  If you suspect that there really are people there without PIOF, submit an AR.

Let's get our terms straight.

Actual gambling is not allowed in SL, as Rolig said.  LL's policies on gambling and "skill gaming" define what is "gambling" and what is a "skill game".

Jemma, what you refer to as "gambling regions" are more properly called "Skill Gaming regions".

OK...now, having picked that particular nit, on to your question.

LL's policies prohibit people from visiting Skill Gaming regions unless they meet three criteria: 1) Payment Information on file, 2) 19 years old or more, and 3) not a resident of or connecting to SL from one of 19 "prohibited" states.  This isn't just policy, it's enforced automatically.  People who fail to meet one or more of those criteria literally cannot get into a Skill Gaming region.

So...what are you actually seeing?  Here are some possibilities.

  • The skill games you are seeing don't require pay to play...for example, I have some games on my regular Mainland region (Greedy and some similar games) that are perfectly legal, because they are free to play. (They don't award cash prizes either, but they could, if I set them that way and funded the prizes myself).
  • You're on LL's "Gaming Island".  This is a sort of demonstration area of skill games.  Anyone can go there and play these games.
  • Someone has set up pay to play skill games on a non-Skill Gaming region.  This is against LL policy.  Report 'em.
  • You have actually stumbled on a situation where someone has figured out how to bypass the system.  Report 'em.

If you are sure in what you saw then file an abuse report.  Keep it clear and concise and to the point with evidence

Jemma, have you checked the land to be sure it is actually a Skill Gaming region?  If it is not, the land owner is the one you should be reporting...either instead of, or in addition to, the non-PIOF gamers.
