    Just noticed your question PingPong. I'm not an attorney but I have some understanding of this based on having been in the industry for some time.

    In general, there are three requirements in order for an activity to be considered gambling:

    1. Prize. You must be able to win something of value. This is part of why services like Zynga's Texas Holdem game aren't considered gambling even though you can buy chips. Even though you're basically putting money at risk by buying chips, it matters that you can't win anything that has value.
    2. Chance. There must be an element of chance. I believe different jurisdictions treat this differently - some jurisdictions say simply that it is gambling if there is some chance (meaning it can be a lot of skill, but even a small part based on chance makes it gambling) involved and others require that chance be predominant (meaning it is more chance than skill).
    3. Consideration. Consideration means you are required to make some payment to be eligible for the prize. You might have seen sweepstakes that say "no purchase necessary to enter" or with similar disclaimers. Usually this is done by allowing people to enter by mailing in an entry form, and it is free if you mail in the form. As long as there is a way to enter that is free, the sweepstakes holder can offer other ways to enter that include some payment -- such as entering the Monopoly Game at McDonalds by buying food there (instead of mailing in an entry form). In these types of situations, I'd guess all or almost all the entries are from purchases, but since there is a way to enter without a purchase, that means the McDonald's Monopoly game isn't gambling. The same thing applies to Face Up Gaming. You can enter each individual tournament by mailing them an entry form (an individual form for each tournament), or you can automatically get an entry to all of the tournaments for the month if you buy their monthly club membership. The key here is that if you really really really wanted to, you could enter the tournaments in a way that doesn't require you to pay anything, and since you can do it without needing to pay, it would not be considered gambling. But of course it is just much more convenient to sign up, so I'd be a bit surprised if they've had any mailed entries.


    Hope that explanation helps.
