As Salaamu Alaykum
Would it be halal to play games with the intention or possibility to make money from the games? This is a common theme in eSports and NFTs, where you can win an NFT and that NFT has a monetary value. Let’s say a game has a set of challenges that you must complete and if you do them, you ‘win’ NFTs.
Similarly, but not entirely the same, CS:GO has a similar feature where you can play games online against other players 1v1 and by using a third party platform, you can bet that you will win with your own in-game items. In the case of CS:GO, you use gun skins (themes of guns) or types of knives in the bets. I’m pretty sure the case of betting for in-game items is haram, but I thought it would be good to mention anyways as this is becoming more common. The issue that complicates it is that the things you are betting with are in-game items, though they can be sold for real life money afterwards.
The following ruling is somewhat relevant, but my question is more broad.
Jazak Allah Khayr
