What is this? Is that where you watch traffic for an hour, but just a little bit at a time?

The reason no gambling as stated earlier is because it was a way to try and hide RMTing.

Beyond the implications of RMT, most in game casinos are scammers that quit out the second they lose big. There's no enforcement or oversight. It's a dumb concept.

Agreed. The only way to make casinos viable would be to add some sort of gameplay system where the owner of the casino is required to put the plat somewhere that they cannot take it back out while gambling is going on. That's not going to happen on P99.

Simple: scammers & RMT.

If we decided to go the custom-content / non-classic route, the only casino we need is plat-sink to buy tickets for legacy/unique items all no-drop.

There was mention of possibly adding in NPC versions in High Keep which would could be offered large sums of coin in exchange for a chance at rare nodrop/legacy items, but that was years back and seemed to lose traction.

Some kind of platsink wouldn't be a bad idea.

Not classic of course.

They banned casinos because it made it harder to track RMT transactions.

There used to be a guild called Casino my character on blue was Jawnie in casino and my honest gambling and item transfer services bought me a couple level 60 accounts when accounts used to be sellable for plat in free er better times. RIP classic blue 99

Plat sink is a no brainer to remove plat from game. As seen in Bazaar you could probably just use that whole NPC and mechanic assuming it exists on eq emu elsewhere already
