I saw this in local and came across a channel which I won’t mention but it’s pretty obvious by the copy paste what its’ called. Looks like someone was going to run a gambling site via twitch for the results. My question is, is this against the EULA/TOS?
EVE System > Channel MOTD: <fontsize=18><color=0xff007fff>Welcome to Across the Board!
<color=0xffff00ff>Across the Board, is a new venue for players looking to scratch that gambling itch, that was left behind when CCP closed the 3rd party gambling websites.
However, in game gambling is not banned, or prohibited.
<color=0xff00ff00>So how does this work, and why is it not a scam, you’re asking yourself? And you would be 100% in your right to ask. Every gambling website has to build up a reputation, and it will be slow at first but I hope to gain that trust with a few basic mechanics.
<color=0xff007fff>The game works on a simple principle, slightly inspired by Eve Holdem, players will see the games currently being ran in <url=joinChannel:-84189468//None//None>ATB Games<color=0xff007fff> which will be between a maximum of four people in the start.
Players will iniate the games, or request games, by asking for games to be done in this chat, once the banker (located in ATB Games) recieves the isk from both players, they will use random.org to draw a random number, via twitch and post it into the ATB games chat as proof of the win, and then pay the corresponding player. All games come with a 5% vig that the banker gets to keep, that is automatically tallied on to the wager.
For instance we will offer a small games at first to build reptuation and as we gain respect/trust we will increase them. For now all games will be 10.5 per player leaving 1m for the banker, 21m per player leaving 2m for the banker or 32m leaving 4m for the banker. If two parties wish to gamble for more, they may request it at any time.
<color=0xffff00ff>It’s very basic and simple, and I really hope you come to Trust and find Across the Board a very fun environment to gamble in.
<color=0xffffff00>Furthermore: We expect some people to think this is a scam, my only hope is that over time players will learn to trust and accept that the results are fair and random, as we will pull them from random.org
<color=0xffff00ff>Some rules: Be respectful of everyone in the chat, no links of any kind, and no advertising, but most importantly have a lot of fun!
