Always when I am around the grand exchange I see loads of gambling bots rolling their botted dices. Even more worryfying is that I see loads of people lose millions and millions of GP to it. It would not be a surprise for me that these bots have coded in features that the 45% chance to win is non-existent (roll is 1-100 and win is 55+ roll), and more like a 20% chance. Since gambling is already an "illegal" thing and "legal" for stakers with maxed mains, I propose a solution to make a "gambling"-arena at the GE.

*- Hereby a player can challenge another player to gamble someone, but with 10 times more tax than through duel arena (2.5% to 10% depending on value).

*- An optional option is to dice with an NPC merchant. This will be a dice rolled from 1 to 100 whereby you should end up 55+ to win. Note that this merchant will have a money pouch with all gp won. When it reaches over max cash, it will be reset back to 50M. When the merchant does not have the sufficient money to pay you back it will tell "scammed" and teleport away. A new Merchant will respawn.

This will feed the gambling addiction of OSRS-players in a legitimate way and also will help for a massive money drain.

The reason games of chance are bannable is because the outcome cannot be enforced, so even if people win, the person running the game of chance could scam them and keep the money.

I admit, I laughed out loud at this.

I still don't support it, though.
I'll keep score from now on.

Exactly, however this is still highly popular and I see a lot of people get scammed by this. Therefore a legal option should be created. Hereby gold can be removed from the game.

Actively supporting something bots do is NOT a good idea lol...if Jagex actually approve of and support something botters do? all it does is lead to more bots breaking the rules.

If people get scammed by these bots it's 100% on them, it's against the rules of the game so they have 0 right to complain if they lose all their money.
