Rolling Game Addon

Hopefully this is the place to ask, but I am looking for an addon that is used for raid roll games during downtime.

I havent been able to find it on curse or wowinterface, but I have seen people use the addon before.

It basically lets me set a roll number (1-500, 1-1000, etc.) then has everyone in raid type 1 to join. It makes a final call, then calls for the raid to roll. Everyone who hit 1 has their roll tallied, and then the lowest number pays the highest number the difference in gold.

I have used this in many of my previous guilds, but now that I am trying to get it going I cant find the addon for it. I have been doing it manually lately, but would like to have the easy way by having the computer do the thinking for me.

Thanks for the help!

An addon like this would have to be made custom with no chat output, since it's against the TOU to advertise gambling games using any in-game chat method.

I understand that using public chat channels for gambling in WoW is againts the ToU, but private gambling, such as in a guild raid, not advertised in a public channel, is allowed. A link is below with the blizzard response to that.

I know I have been in several guilds that use this before, and it is a fun use of downtime during a raid. Hopefully someone else will be able to help me out, as it seems to be fairly common, as I have seen it used in my last 3 raiding guilds.

While players may opt to privately run or participate in an in-game casino, advertising for this particular practice is not permitted in-game or on our forums in any form

Im not here to turn this into a debate. I am not advertising a casino. It is opted in to in a private setting. There is no advertising for a casino going on in any form. Going by the rules I linked and you so expertly pointed out, there is nothing against the rules going on, as there is no advertising happening, merely the execution of said game. If you do not have the answer I am looking for, please do not waste time responding, though I do appreciate you bumping my thread.

For anyone else who may have an answer, thank you in advance.

While not exactly what you're looking for, you could check this Guild Lottery addon out:

The channels include, but is not limited to, guild, raid, party, whisper, real ID convos. Anything that appears in the chat box is under ToU. The only time you can make any mention of this game (including "Who want's to play XYZ?") is outside of WoW via Skype, Ventrilo, what have you.

With that said, I don't know of any addon that has done that. I would hope that any addon of such nature was banned which would be the reason you cannot find it.

Did you guys even read the support article that's linked? What he's asking for is not against the ToU. If he were advertising to join his game and win mad golds, that would be one thing. All he's asking for is a way to run the game within his private raid, which is already expressly permitted by Blizzard as noted in the linked support article.

The blizz answer said that advertising of any kind is not allowed, nothing about the execution of the game. It even says that private running or opt in of a casino is allowed. I am not advertising, I am merely executing the game in the raid chat. Advertising is what is not allowed based on what is in the link I gave, while execution is allowed. Accepting peoples rolls is not advertising, it is the exectution of a private game, which is allowed.

The fact that you think this game should be banned has nothing to do with the fact that it is allowed, so long as there is no advertising. I am not doing this for trade chat, I am not doing this to scam people, I am not doing this to try to cheat people out of gold. I am merely using it for down time during a raid with my friends, all of which can privately opt in or out, which again, is acceptable according to what the blizzard link is saying.

Thank you Maurd, for the closest thing to an answer.
