Richard Garriott is proposing to knit up the OpenLife realms with a casino, it seems. He will attempt to bypass 'adult' content (which honestly, I very rarely come across in SL now - I know it's there but since I don't look for it I don't see it) while actively promoting gambling by way of a browser plugin that interfaces with Facebook. It started with something insalubriously monikered 'Sweet @$! Poker' rebranded to the Portalarium theme, and has blackjack as well.
I'm not a gambling person and it seems cheesey and distasteful to me, but oh, well, I'm sure it will be profitable if that's all he wants.
