You obviously don’t know anything about how the law works in my country, else you wouldn’t have mentioned it. It is exactly as I wrote it. a game of chance for real money is illegal gambling in this country.

If you receive something of identifiable value every time you pay, then it is not gambling by any legal definition of the term. It may be subject to other questionable conduct laws, like Bait and Switch (also very unlikely in this case, but at least vaguely possible this time).

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Saved Game Lost

Thats probably not going to be available in the long term. Kongregate tends not to allow importing in games that have badges (that’s why it was removed from both GC0 and Labyrinth).

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Monsters' Den Chronicles] The evade/miss rate is fucked up!

“But here comes Chronicles and something is really bugging me. In most game with a ‘’hit percentage’‘, when you are over 85%, it’s always a hit. With very few exceptions.”

Funny thing about odds like this: the Law of Averages does not exist. Every single attack all game legitimately can miss, and you need a lot more than fifteen incidents to show any significant possibility of something going wrong.

Incidentally, your chance of missing all four times with the given odds is 0.06% (~ 1 in 1607). Unlikely, but not unreasonable as an outlier.

For comparison, your odds of winning the minimum payout on Florida’s regular Lotto game is a little more than 0.19% (~1 in 511). The maximum payout is just barely over 0.0000000099% (exactly 1 in 10,068,347,520).
