    If there are any ads then it's gambling.

    I missed this one for a while but can’t help responding.

    It’s hilarious how serious and matter-of-fact your clearly incorrect answer is. Like, you’re so absolutely sure this is correct that you post it repeatedly and singularly, without even trying to explain the logic behind it.

    Gambling is the wagering of something of value for the chance of winning a prize. Ads are something of value for HQ because they would get money for them, but they are not of value to the people playing. The time spent watching an ad has some intrinsic value, but it would be absurd to say the time spent watching an ad would amount to some wager value to the player.

    So yeah, if HQ had ads it would not be considered gambling. Full stop, I won’t be responding again.
