So my organisers were thinking about organising a clan lottery.

They were working everything out nicely with price money, entry, % going to the "clan bank" which also helps funding Skill competition rewards, when they ran into one small question.

Is the clan lottery seen as "gambling"?

Such as RS Rulebreak gambling, like h/c, flowergame, dicing etc..
Since it's the members choice to enter or not, and it's all going to be done in a fair way with numbers & random number generator and stuff like that..

I mean, i don't need people replying here that it's a stupid idea or what not, I just need to know if it's against the rules to organise it? Since some research showed me many clans are doing it..

Yes, this is considered player-run games of chance, and it is against the rules.

Btw, I see you have 50+ members in your clan and would recommend applying for Clan Leader Forum access so that you can discuss these types of topics with other clan leaders.

Apply here: Clan Leader Forum Access V3

*Note to anyone with CLF access who reads this, Mod Matthe gave his input on clan lotteries here when it was brought up: Clan Lottery - Allowed?

You're welcome :)

Ahh, you do need to wait out the 6 months before applying for access.

I just wanted to point it out, in case you hadn't known, because it's a great place to collaborate with fellow clan leaders & the passing Jmods who can answer these types of questions for us.
