    Official Policy Regarding Participant-Organized Events


    Recently, certain types of participant-organized events in Entropia Universe have become increasingly popular that include a raffle, sweepstakes or other randomized or chance-based component.

    Because the marketing of such “raffle” and “sweepstakes” events has become more aggressive over time, and the events have an increasing emphasis on random selection of prize winners, it has become necessary for MindArk to announce and enforce a detailed policy for such events and activities.

    Section 8.14 of the Entropia Universe End User Licence Agreement states:

    Gambling activities are expressly forbidden in the Entropia Universe.

    In accordance with that section of the EULA, the following policy will be in effect and enforced starting on May 1, 2020:

    All participant-organized events or activities that include any sort of randomized winner selection and/or prize distribution process or component are prohibited in Entropia Universe.

    This policy is important to ensure that MindArk and Entropia Universe remain in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

    If you are uncertain whether an event or activity this policy, please open a support case with a detailed description of your proposed event or activity, and the support team will provide guidance. For previously-existing ongoing events that may be in violation of this policy, please contact support for assistance.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    "Gambling activities are expressly forbidden in the Entropia Universe."
    I'm sorry but I have to laugh at how MA is really trying to dodge legal complications when literally every gameplay mechanic is a sugar coated slot machine, and with Explosive Projectiles they aren't even hiding it anymore.
