I have never seen a casino advertisement. I didn't even know they you could have a WoW casino (/roll I guess?).I think it will only cause problems, almost encourage them.
Most casino adverts I see now-a-days are in /yell. And @natom, yes they just /random and have set winnings according to the roll. Personally, I don't care if casinos exist (I love playing poker, so one could say that I'm partial towards gambling), but as this post says, it's the advert spamming that drives me nuts. As I assumed the casino's were still illegal, I've been Reporting every advert I've seen, but I guess I should change to just ignoring the player, if Blizzard is going to allow casinos again.

Didn't we go over this a few weeks ago? This is like the "moderator approved thread necro" =|
I think they banned casinos again, actually.Correction: they only banned the advertising of it.http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?articleId=27048 <--- Source.
If two players want to bet, or wager on a duel, that is their business.Yell an advert, or spam trade and get one complaint, Buh-bye ... which is apparently Blizz policy.Good.
It is a freaking good thing they removed casino!It was a scam. (Definition of scam is, abusing stupid people :P)You would more chance to make gold by buying the mats to make a northrend card and asking a Scribe to craft you one than playing any casino.
Personally, I got annoyed by them. I also didn't like the practice. I'm glad they banned the advertising.I know people have their own thoughts, but I as a person find no issue with banning practices that are unhealthy, unethical, harmful, or otherwise deviant.
well I have seen casinos in-game and they were playing about anything!Items of any value.But this was a year ago.Thinking all these achievements added who cares rolling for Infinity Blade?
I know one of my guildies ones run but its just for in guild on a non raid night so probally not a bad thing that there not altogether banned imo. Never had any problems with casino spam...only ones I have seen have been in yells which is fine as far as I am concerned.
it was a totally random choise
All the /y adverts are getting to my mind.
I have enjoyed the casino 1-2 times but the constant spamming was just annoying
