As it stands, the states of Arizoan bans online gambling.

While LL insists their skill gaming regions are not "gambling", they've opted to not allow states that don't allow online gambling from entry. (Curious...)

However, things like lootboxes and Gacha machines are 100% ok, at least in my state.

So if they threw them in Skill gaming regions, they'd prevent many states from accessing them who have no legal reason to be forbidden.

This is a terrible idea that would never fly in a million years.

1. Its not "skilled", although arguably most the gambling in SL isn't even though it claims to be.
2. No creator with any self respect is going to make items for such a limited audience. Their time is better spent elsewhere.
3. This would create a seriously unfair resale market as those who can't enter would be forced to buy from those who can in order to support the creators they like and/or get exclusive items.

I cannot think of a single good reason anyone would participate in this. Besides, we already know there's a bunch of bottom feeders who have half baked plans of work-arounds so they can continue ripping people off. Business in SL as usual.

Sounds great but it wouldn't be the same. Rather like the gaming sims are now. All I want is to play an inworld fruit machine and lottery. I reckon gachas would go the same way and the mechanic would change so much so that they wouldn't be gachas we, well most of us, know and love and it would probably kill the fun.
