1 vs. 100 Prizes Not Available to Some


Have you been checking out the 1 vs. 100 beta on Xbox Live? Eager for the actual game to begin soon so you can win some hefty prizes? You are? Great!

Oh, what’s that? You live in _____ ? (Insert Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Vermont, or Quebec)

In that case, you’re completely out of luck. Microsoft will not be supplying prizes to you. No, they don’t have some personal vendetta against Iowa (although maybe one against Quebec), but certain laws and stipulations in those states do not allow people to compete in contests because it’s considered gambling. Yes, playing a game where you can’t lose any money is considered gambling. Way to go politics. Way to go.
