Gambling is strictly prohibited in Second Life and operating, or participating in, a game of chance that provides a Linden Dollar payout is a violation of our Terms of Service. However, games of skill are legally permitted in many jurisdictions, and Second Life’s Skill Gaming Policy establishes that skill games offering Linden Dollar payouts are allowed, but each game, its creator, its operator, and the region on which it is operated must be approved by Linden Lab.
Access to skill games offering Linden Dollar payouts are limited to Second Life users who are of sufficient age and are located in a jurisdiction that Linden Lab permits for this type of online gaming activity. For more information on this program, please read the Skill Gaming Policy and associated FAQs.
