So why can someone not just host a some form of in-game gambling with credits then?

It only falls under the gambling statute if your gambling real dollars.. virtual currency does not apply.. Hence club Wpt which is legal in the US.. no money is actually won therefore legal.. You play for prizes and stuff given by sponsors.

I would love to see the Casino on Nar Shaddaa have some mini games like Pazaak, Sabaak and even Djarak. I would like to see two sets of tables and game rooms: solo (play against NPCs) and multiplay (play against real people) -- all while waging Credits (different wagers and rewards for different games).

I don't think they would allow for Cartel Coins though: since those can translate into real-world currency, and cause a lot of frustration amongst players, name calling and accusations of cheating. There may still be some grief from bads and kids when it comes to losing credits, but it would be negligible and non-impacting to anything RL.

Even if it were just NPC-driven solo gambling games and whatnot, it would still definitely be a great idea to have those little mini games in the Casino, and make that place alive with people. Also, some games could have achievement unlocks, titles and exclusive Casino Vendor items (like that car speeder in the foyer) for the players who get real lucky or do real well in there.

Heck, I could imagine some duels breaking out in there when a couple of people disagree on the hands they were dealt. Lending more to the realism of that shady place on Nar Shaddaa. And, just like at some bar entrance on Coruscant, if a fight breaks out, some NPCs would run scurrying for cover. LOL.

This would definitely liven the place up.
