No, the highest rating for a game featuring gambling is T for Teen or even 12. As long as it's not real world currency and just in-game credits, it will be fine.
If you'd like to see more Explorable Worlds in Star Wars: The Old Republic,
then head to this thread and discuss, list and vote which you'd like to see and explore in the game:

Ah, great! Than I am very agree with OP!
Please, Bioware, can you create a free PvP and PvE space battle please! Swoop racing is also welcome!

Definitely agree. I need something to do when not questing, or raiding. Some non-combat entertainment would be great if you ask me.

Until these mini games come to SWTOR the massive casino in narshadaar is pointless, and when I first went there I was truly disappointed I really want to be able to go there and just gamble :L

No there's not. There's laws against murdering people too, but we seem to be doing an awful lot of that in game.

Probably laws about driving a vehicle indoors in a built up area too.

I see instances of gambling online in every MMO I have ever played. And drinking (for those who aren't 18 or 21 depending on your area restrictions). And murder. And suicide.

No, there's no reason we can't have pazaak in game, and am looking forward to it greatly. And Pod/Swoop racing.

The reality is: THIS IS POSSIBLE, AND IT IS NOT ILLEGAL AS LONG AS THE GAME IS ONE OF SKILL AND DOES NOT INVOLVE "REAL" MONEY. If what people are ignorantly claiming to be "illegal" were true, there would be no FULL TILT POKER, among hundreds of thousands of online sites would be shut down, there literally would be an onslaught of gaming shut down and the internet would probably close... simply put, all of this is possible, since credits CANNOT be bought. And... if a state or government has a law that prevents it... it is the PLAYERS responsibility not to participate. As for slot machines, and that type of gaming, again, as long as it did not involve "real" currency, it would be acceptable.

I am fairly well versed in many of these areas, and it is possible for this to happen, it IS NOT ILLEGAL to gamble fake currency. . . and it would improve this game so much, if players had other social outlets. SWTOR could give in-game prizes, virtual goods, etc. ONLY if CREDITS could be bought and sold, is it a problem... and even then, it could be restricted and disclaimers could be put in place, barring those places that did not allow it. Its really not that big of a deal, and many people try to speak as if they know the laws, when simply, they are incorrect. If what many of these posts were true - then you would not be able to have at least 1/2 of the games that are online or on the market today, legally.

Not to engage a debate, I would fully support and enjoy having some other social and activity events in this game.

I had to bump the thread to I guess 25th or 26th the motion. I want to be able to gamble in the game, gambling was in FF7 and it was no big deal, why can't we have gambling.

Heck there was gambling in Super Mario Brothers 2 and most Mario games since. Ok sure it's not online but I whole 'gateway' argument, whether it's about gambling or drugs... or whatever.

I'd be fine with winning the in game equivalent of Chucky Cheese tickets that could only be traded in at the casino prize shop for plastic clip on mustaches and nerf stuffies.

These are all great ideas that will be fine much later in the game when many other things are fixed first. This is one of many many threads that want infinite credit sinks, games, racing, etc.

BW really needs to focus on some of the bigger issues before these can happen. Please help by posting on them to get those things pushed through, so the sooner we can have things like this.
