But what about the “tiger game”?

The Ministry of Finance cannot yet say whether the Fortune Tiger falls into a gambling game, but the criminal specialist and conformity Railane Roma, in an interview with Canaltechbelieves that the product falls within this definition.

“Games of chance are those where the outcome does not depend on the skill of the player, but on luck,” he explains. “In other words, they are games where the player cannot influence the outcome with his own skill, it depends only on luck, and Fortune Tiger fits into this,” he concludes.

The National Association of Gaming and Lotteries (ANJL) disagrees. “Fortune Tiger is a game of chance, in the form of fixed odds, and not a game of chance, prohibited by the Misdemeanor Act.”

Fixed odds mode means that the bettor has information about how much he can win based on the amount wagered.
