Full story here

 

tl;dr version:

 

TmarTn and ProSyndicate grouped together and discovered a gambling site for CSGO skins. Prosyndicate (and I think TmarTn) gambled a lot, and win the skins. Some of them worth thousands of dollars. The kicker? TmarTn actually owned the gambling site, and had it rigged so he and Prosyndicate would win.

 

Talk about the house always wins.

It was never proven that they did rig it, but for the publicity and crazy winning videos, they probably did fake those lotteries. You could only prove that with an indepth investigation by the authorities with access to logs and inside information.

 

Otherwise its shady as fuck, hope they actually get jail time since there are some big gambling violations. i'm 99% sure they will lose the business and will have to pay significant fines and maybe even settlements to users.

Wait... Are you saying that a set of DIGITAL TEXTURES for a specific game are worth thousands of dollars of REAL LIFE MONEY?!? Shouldn't this be in the 'how fucked is the human race' thread?

Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.

Correction: Tmartn and prosyndicate co-owned the site and didn't disclose the information

Them rigging the odds was purely speculation with no real evidence

it's old news, at least get your facts right when reporting it

Oh yeah, it's really disturbing.

I tried to explain it to one of my EE professor's once, and he looked at me like I had lobsters crawling out of my ears.

I HAVE to blow everything up! It's the only way to prove I'm not CRAZY!

The real problem here is that this CS GO betting thing is impossible to stop! It is not a big deal for me, to be honest, but I really think that if this is a game where you have to shoot people, be humble and just shoot people. There are some other places to gamble, like clubvip777.com of other casino places like that one. The thing is that if you go to a website and it says that here we are risking money to win even more money, it’s great, but if you play a shooting game and they make money by gambling there it’s really disturbing. At least, that’s what I’m thinking about all this situation.

Betting is a very questionable thing. In my opinion, if a person wants to make a bet, then he should not invest his last money. Let's say when I bet on teams, I understood that this is a risk, because games are often unpredictable. The last time I put some Cheap csgo knives , totaling somewhere around 400$ and raised  55$ from this. I don't see anything wrong with betting on Cs Go, and in general on esports. You just need to do a little analysis and have money that you are ready to lose in a bad case.
