Hi gang,Gambling, in the real world, is not allowed if you're underaged. On Empire Minecraft we have no such limitations and well, I think it shouldn't come as a surprise that there are some players who end up seeing a large chunk of their money disappear and sometimes even become plain out frustrated because of it. I'm (somewhat) sure staff knows, because something tells me that some players may even have resorted to /report. Which quite honestly won't do you much good if the contraption has been approved by staff, which is a requirement in the first place.So step one in my guide, always check here: https://empireminecraft.com/wiki/approved-player-games/ before playing. If it's listed then you're (somewhat) safe. If it's not then tell the player that they need to get their contraption approved before using it, and don't play with it if it costs you money!Step two is simple, but important to realize: the casino always wins. To put it blunt: generally speaking casino's and slot machines weren't build to entertain other players, they're build to provide the owner with a (hopefully) steady cashflow. If you want an honest challenge then seriously: don't bother with this and go play parkour, firefloor or participate in a skin competition.And the most important of all is step three: greed is a very bad lead. If something sounds too good to be true then trust your instincts: it is.So what to do if you want to play to see what the fuss is all about? Well, then go ahead and play of course. And maybe these tips can also help:Tip one is to set money aside before playing. Before you start ask yourself how much you're willing to spend. Then look at the starting fee, and //calc how much times you can play. And when you reached that amount of plays then keep your own promise and stop playing.Example: I'm willing to spend 100r and the fee is 45r: //calc 100/45 will reveal all.Another thing to keep in mind is tip two: some slot machines may provide small prizes. But in 99% of all slot machines you'd be cheaper off if you had bought that item in a random playershop (/v +shop). So you're not winning, you're basically buying overpriced items And finally tip three: get it into your mindset already that the casino always wins!And to close...Quite frankly I have mixed feelings about these things. Personally I don't care that much because I don't play these, if you want money you're better off mining (gets you some fun and rupees as well). But after seeing some player reactions across random servers I do have some concerns.Still... In the end this is a game and quite frankly I think that if players do get upset over losing money in some kind of player casino then there might also be something positive here: they learned an important, maybe rough, lesson that in the end the casino always wins.And that could just make the difference when they grow up and get tempted with this in real life.But yeah, I'm sure some players may not appreciate this guide but there ya go: careful with gambling!
