Hypothetical question

    Myself and a few friends throw money into a pool each week. We pick one match and guess the score and whoever guesses the correct score wins the money.

    Is this considered to be gambling? Theoretically, should we need a license for this? I know this is small scale, but in theory is this subject to gaming laws etc?

    Not sure of the legalities but unless you're doing it in North Korea you'd be hard pressed to find a cop willing to bang your door down for it.

    Yeah I'm not worried in the slightest, but was just wondering what the legalities were. By right, should I have a gaming license? A betting license? Am I even gambling?
