Weak.

Multiple logging in being officially endorsed by Jagex.


Also, the rules claim interacting with the game world without logging in is against the rules. Does that mean pinging the world servers to check your latency with them is against the rules?

They also claim that hiding adverts is against the rules, but AFAIK Jagex hasn't used adverts on their websites for some years now.

Further more on the gambling hypocrisy: Runescape requires every player to be aged 13 or above according to their terms and conditions. Last I checked, 13 year old can't participate in casino's. What they are doing with treasure hunter in most cases should be illegal in many countries. Why it isn't is beyond me.

Ah, found it.

Section 4. You may not create an account if you are under 13 and it is a violation to create an account for someone under 13.

So, they offer gambling services like TH on a game aimed at teenagers. Nice going Jagex.


I don't think it's classed as gambling if it doesn't cost you anything.
TH prizes are a free giveaway as part of your membership - all you're doing in TH is selecting the free gift you want.

I'm sure Jagex have lawyers who would have looked into this in great detail.


My first post explicitly cites that TH keys can very much be bought with REAL WORLD money which in exchange for said real world money gives you a chance at a lucrative prize such as 200m or literally any other reward on the purple slot of the TH. Red too in some cases.

Last I checked, a chance means there's every chance you won't be getting the 200m prize or even landing on the purple slot at all, as is often the case.

Please explain to me how paying real world money for a chance at a desired item on TH does not resemble gambling outlets like the lottery.


As much as I hate TH and the like, look at this month's updates and Jagex is already selling overloads and deathtouched darts outright. Attacking the gambling aspect of TH is a pointless endeavor, and there is no hypocrisy for jagex to have gambling as against the rules. Try setting up your own slot machine in someone else's casino and see what happens.
