in real life you gamble without you knowing about it .... is that inmorale too?

Just out of interest, who cares... its a game... its not really an ethical forum and nobody on STO is going to develop a gambeling addiction to Dabo

Rewarding gambling with a pittance of fictional money that carries absolutely zero real world benefit to the players? Fake cash which isn't really all that useful even within the game itself?

Cryptic has unleashed Gamblor and we must be freed from the grips of his neon claws!

Hmmmm.... the OP reference to the religious morality maxim of "gambling is a sin" or some similar paradigm is rather provincial. Oh well money, chips, lives -etc... it really is all the same. What matters is the value one places on things and that of course is highly subjective to be sure.

It is like the great JTK once said, "risk is our business" and gambling is all about knowing the risk is it not?

I can see it now, RA's lining the walls of Sol Starbase all begging for a few EC, all with stories of gambling away their EC, their personal items and weapons, their ships items and eventually the ships themselves, and finally lowering themselves to selling their boffs to the orion syndicate only to lose and be kicked out after unsuccesfully offering one of their costume slots.

You'll give them money only to have them slink back to deep space nine in the cargo section of a hired danube runabout and gamble that away too.

It truly is a good time to be Ferengi!
