Sounds suspiciously like gambling… which is banned under the EULA…

Ok, I just looked at your website, its a free lottery now it seems.

You were previously banned for gambling under your old rules as ticket buying and “registration fees”. Hmm.


(elitatwo) #4

Yes but BIG Games has been in the game since the beginning of time.

The number of tickets is limited and pays the winnings. It does not create money out of nowhere.


(Uriel the Flame) #5

Since gambling is made illegal in the EULA that is no longer the case as far as I know. Now they rely on player donations I guess (and probably the organizer has a steady income as well I assume). Also there are additional prizes provided by others so player donation is surely a part of it one way or another. Though with the anti-gambling rules they no longer allowed to sell tickets for ISK (or anything else) thus anyone can sign up for free now and each character is limited to one ticked per draw.


(Anataine Deva) #6

Where did you get that nonsense?

BIG was never banned and the old lottery, now free giveaway went always within the rules of the EULA.

In case, thats not clear, here’s a screenshot from that forum post:


(Anataine Deva) #8

You really want to tell me, that CCP’s confirmation that the old rules of the BIG Lottery infringe the new EULA where “games of chance” are forbidden, is an evidence for you that BIG was banned for gambling?

[pause to think about that]

Because of that confirmation (screenshot) and the comment of ISD Max Trix in your linked thread, the BIG Lottery became a free give away. The only way to carry on without getting closed down.

Therefore let me make it clear, BIG and his Lottery were never banned for gambling.


(Nana Skalski) #9

Yes, never banned, only changed the form of operation. There is nothing about ban in the post, only that they cant continue in previous form. Small misunderstanding.
