Hello Mike and other players here.

I've been told by one player that apparently this game generates real world $$ which I haven't seen since the old woc. Saying he's going to report to the IRS for gambling rules in the US.

Is the true or do we not have anything to worry about?

No, there are no real-world prizes in the new WoC. I left that out this time around so I wouldn't have to deal with the laws and restrictions placed on gambling.

For the original WoC there was never any legal or IRS trouble, but PayPal did decide to stop processing payments for it because it considered it too close to gambling. I always considered it a game of skill (for which gambling rules don't apply, so they can have cash prizes) rather than a game of chance, but PayPal anyway wasn't interested in taking the time to figure out which side of the line it fell on.
