In my country for example any form of gambling with real or virtual currency is forbidden and banned like the example given below puzzle pirates is banned and there are many other countries with laws like this.

1 - Side deck cards could be gathered via player companion missions and sold on the AH.
2 - Players could wager credits against each other for matches in catinas.
3 - SWTOR could host daily tournaments for players to win prizes.
4 - There could be a rating system in place to show a players Pazaak ranking.
5 - Pazaak titles!
6 - A monthly "Galactic Series of Pazaak" where hundreds of players on each server pay in 50,000 credits a head for a several million credit top prize!

If you support Pazaak, post your ideas and your love of the game here.
pazaak cards as rare drops/ purchases on the Cartel Market??
...this game is in dire need of Pazaak.
...and this guy is right.

As long as the Commendations have rewards that don't ruin the game, it would be great. Allowing gambling of real credits is a terrible, terrible idea.

Who told you that? To put it nicely -- you are wrong.

Yes, and any other games they can add into Narshadda casinos would be cool as well.

I think the devs should look at the way the game Red Dead Redemption handled card games and mini games. There are some really great ideas to pull from.

i do believe that even some states in the US have laws against gambling, let alone other countries. but if BW made pazzak a NON gambling game, so just play for prizes or something, then they'd probably have better luck with legal issues.

im all for pazzak, whether you gamble or not.

Of course, any entertaining mini game they add is most welcome.

If it's for in-game credits is it still considering actual currency and gambling?
