I assume that botting to make ISK or otherwise play the game is not legal but what if someone ran blackjack or poker in a chat channel. I say this because I think that running blackjack or poker in-game would be pretty cool, particularly if we could gamble ISK, but I don’t see CCP putting something like this in… unless maybe if someone else implemented it and it was popular. But would that be against the rules?
Specifically I imagine there’d just be a channel called “Blackjack”, you join it and a bot runs blackjack games through text.
Edit: Apparently gambling is against the EULA but would it be legal if people weren’t using ISK? Just for fun.

Seriously man, if you can’t enjoy a computer game without trying to stick gambling like ‘Blackjack or poker’ into it, then you really should start to think about the fact that you have a gambling problem.
CCP shut down all the various sorts of isk gambling in Eve (which was quite popular) but then after a bit made the hypernet exchange…which is…isk gambling. Of course, CCP sells the needed hypernet cores for irl money…so…
