Linden Labs Announces No Further Applications For "Skill Game" Operators
Linden Lab updated it's "Skill Games" policy, which stated the machines could only operate in specially designated areas, and those wanting to operate them had to apply to Linden Lab
A couple days ago in the official Second Life blog, Linden Lab announced "an important update" to their skill games policy. They would no longer be taking applications from residents interested in running the gaming machines. Applications already received, and the process for being a maker of the games were unaffected.
Skill games that offer Linden Dollar payouts are allowed in Second Life, but each game, its creator, its operator, and the region on which it is operated must be approved by Linden Lab.
As of today, Skill Gaming Operator applications are being closed. Any pending applications submitted prior to the date of this blog post will be reviewed and processed normally.
Though applications for Operators are now closed, you can still apply as a Skill Gaming Creator with the application process available on the FAQ page.
