The following is our understanding of the most Frequently Asked Questions about Linden Lab’s new Skill Gaming policy, and their answers. For a definitive answer, please file a Support Case with Linden Lab. Also you can contact SL’s technical department at 1-800-294-1067 for US/Canada.

This contains information from many different sources and should not be construed as legal advice. Linden Lab is the sole source of official information, this is just an unofficial guide to be helpful.

Staring September 1, 2014, every Creator (game maker) and every Operator (skill gaming location) needs to be licensed to continue operation. STUDIO 777’s application is moving along smoothly. Also, every skill gaming location must be located on a Skill Gaming Region. STUDIO 777 is now located on a Skill Gaming Region. JOBSTAR™, Second Life®’s Original Job Agency, is also located on our Skill Gaming Region.

Additionally, all Second Life residents will need to meet certain requirements in order to enter any Skill Gaming Region:

1) You’ll need to have verified payment information on file (credit card or PayPal)

2) Be over 19 years old, and

3) Reside in/access Second Life from states and countries that allow Skill Gaming. Linden Lab has determined that residents of the following states may not participate in Skill Gaming in Second Life: Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, South Carolina and South Dakota.

This list may change, and can be found at: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Second_Life_Skill_Gaming_FAQ#Prohibited_states_and_countries

If you live near a border of a banned state:
If you do not live in a banned state but live near one, check your IP address at http://www.whatismyip.com and then click on More IP Information. This will show you two IP addresses & if you are possibly affected due to where your service provider has their IP registered (housed) at.

I’M NOT IN A BANNED STATE & HAVE PAYMENT INFO ON FILE BUT I CAN’T GET IN!

If you’re not able to access STUDIO 777 after we become a Skill Gaming Region, try this first: Log out of Second Life. Go to your Second Life dashboard on the SL.com website and delete your payment information, then re add it. Then log back into Second Life and it should be fixed. We’ve seen that work immediately and we’ve seen it take 24 hours. If you still can’t enter, you’ll need to file a support ticket with Linden (under Help on your account dashboard). We have no control over the rules or how this works, it’s all Linden Lab, we have no access to your account or billing information.

If you think you’ve satisfied all of the above requirements, and still can’t get in, here are some things to try:

  • Find the region on the Map and teleport there directly, instead of using a landmark
  • Try teleporting to a nearby region and walking in
  • Try accessing SL using a different Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Try changing to a different DNS server, such as the Free Public Google DNS
