There are 2 kinds of gambling:

1. Game of chance

2. Game of chance and skill

Before anyone says you always win a prize and says it's not gambling, it is. You are gambling for the chance at Elite skilling outfits. Th is obviously a game of chance with 0 skill involved. All you do is open chests. Honestly these should be in game by now there is no reason to sell them on th. It won't devalue others who paid for them since they had them first. Keeping them on th is only splitting the community apart. It would bring the community together if Elite skilling outfits come in game. This is coming from someone who enjoys th.

By this logic, anything in the game that involves RNG is gambling right?

-Kill a boss and you roll a chance for a pet.
-open a clue casket and roll a chance for a dye.

These don't involve skills, they involve hitting a number on a wheel with a set chance of getting the item.

Don't get me wrong, I am not a fan of seeing elite skilling outfits on TH that will be in game anyway. I think its a last minute sell out. But in a game of RNG, anything is a gamble.

Planting seeds to train Farming is a gamble.

Cooking food is a gamble.

Picking pockets is a gamble.

Crafting runes is a gamble.

Asking friends for help is a gamble.

Breathing is a gamble.


Saying the word gamble in an attempt to trigger people is a gamble.

But you still need to kill that boss or do the steps for getting that casket in order to get those drops.

These outfits should be in game content for all of us to enjoy, not locked behind a paywall. If you add these in game maybe I will buy some bonds in game for some of those stupid xp promotions you run Jagex, I expect to play the game and not pay for it.

Premier Club Vault involves chance. Remove it?

Summer Raffles that give you a chance to obtain Golden Barrow Armors, Deathtouched Darts among other limited time items. Remove it?

Clue Scroll/Macab/Barbarian Assault Reroll definitely involve chance. Remove them?

That's just silly if you have to remove everything that involves chances in a game, or even real world. I "bet" the chance of any game of chances getting removed is an absolute ZERO. ;)

Th isnt gambling as gambling involves a chance at winning nothing.

You always win something 100% of the time from th.


And that's the issue here. You are gambling for specific prizes like the elite skilling outfits. The other prizes you don't care about this is why those lootbox games can get away with this.

Yet its still not gambling as just because you dont get what you're aiming for, doesnt make it gambling.

I mean might as well say killing monsters is gambling at this point.
