Well.... they were pretty clear in their announcement.

Casino slots, which you feed with tokens (which you buy in game with in game credits), and winnings are in the form of a new trade currency of some form. This is not an unusual approach for MMO devs by the way..... as it effectively inoculates the game from local gambling laws and restrictions around the world.

Now if players embrace the casino, rather then crapping all over it 7/24 once it goes live, it could very well be they will expand the types of games of chance in the casino and make it a recurring event.

Same.

If Bioware wants me to stay entertained, given the drought as far as NEW content is concerned, at least give me more character slots on the Red Eclipse. I ain't asking much.

You just have to be patient and the things will come. Can't wait for this addition and I believe, in time, it will be a permanent feature. They are probably doing the event to see how popular it is before adding it. Long, long event though. I can't wait! I have been waiting for those poor casinos to be opened for a while now!

One...more....coin...just one more. I almost got it! Just ONE MORE!! Get outta here!!!

And I suppose that, in some way,somehow, the slots aren't going to be considered outright gambling either?

Riiiight... just like people said that hourly cartel market sale was designed to drain players of coins in anticipation of strongholds. How many free coins have we gotten since then? How many millions of credits do most players have? August is still a bit down the road as well.

If there are good rewards, I am willing to spend every credit I own and take up the life of a hobo.
