[CSGO] Winning The Lottery

So I'm playing a casual deathmatch in CSGO (Counter Strike: Global Offensive) to get some practice. Usually at the end of any match, you have a chance to get a weapon skin drop. You can either use these skins on your weapons, trade them, or sell them for actual money.

At the end of my match, some lucky dude won a Dragon Lore skin for the AWP. Not only is this skin EXTREMELY rare, but it also sells for over $1,000.
This guy won himself over a thousand dollars by playing a 10 minute match. Can you imagine that? This guy basically won the lottery!

For any of you confused about this. CSGO is not only just an FPS game, it's an online Casino. You can buy a case key for $2.50, which opens a specific case giving you a weapon skin. You could win a super rare one, or just get a common one. If you are lucky, you can get a high priced skin. Then ofcourse there are the chances of getting a skin drop at the end of a match.

The problems with games using real currency is Chinese farmers and hackers. Take the real money auction house (RMAH) in Diablo 3 for example. When it first opened up I sold a fist weapon for $200, it was exciting to say the least. I quit playing for a while and when I decided to come back and try to make some more money I discovered they disabled the RMAH. It turns out that someone figured out how to dupe gold, and since gold can be sold on the RMAH, fraud occurred on a massive scale.

I don't think making or spending real money for in game rewards is a healthy or safe practice.
