It’s a smart way to fight inflation and they could even return plat drops to classic like on rathe mountains giants. Nerf version is sad it used to be such a chill place to kill giants for plat

Previously allowed, as per classic. Now banned to make it easier to fight RMT

Players who might not have even had the fungi were gambling that people wouldn't hit, and when someone did... and the "dealer" inevitably had "connection issues" and thats a whole headache/petition/RMT concern/etc.

So yeah, no gambling except for a safe website where I occasionally entertain myself. Nilbog did at one stage think about adding a casino bot, to help as a platsink as much as anything else... but it was before Velious was completely released, not classic, effort required, didn't happen for many reasons (yet).
The reluctance to add an official gambling feature due to these difficulties is understandable. Balancing the desire to offer interesting content and features with maintaining a fair, safe and enjoyable gaming environment is a constant challenge for game developers

Would be cool if it got added eventually. I remember Brad (I think it was Brad) saying in an interview that they had wanted to add gambling NPCs to the casino rooms on the second floor in Highkeep but never got around to it (I think the quote is in the IRC logs thread that's currently going in the Screenshots forum). So technically you could argue it was a planned classic feature that they never got around to.

It's true that integrating an official gambling feature poses significant challenges for game developers. Balancing innovative content with player safety and fairness is paramount. This delicate equilibrium requires careful consideration of ethical standards, regulatory compliance, and the potential impact on the gaming community. Ensuring a safe and enjoyable environment must always take precedence, even if it means foregoing certain features. The priority should always be the well-being and trust of the players, which ultimately sustains long-term success and a positive reputation for the developers.
