It depends. The general position is that the Remote Gaming Act does not cover games which do not, as part of the game design, enable players to receive money or money’s worth consequent to the outcome of that game. It would also generally not prohibit leader-boards, which rank and reward top players, or tournaments organised by game developers or promoters where players can win real-world prizes. Instead, it is meant to prohibit casino-style games which give players a chance to win money or real-world merchandise.
