Question:

There is one game I like to play which is a completely free game. There is a new feature called lottery where I am guessing you pay with game points for a chance to win something. Is that considered a sin in that case? It is impossible for a person to pay money for the game points. They are only earned in the game. Not sure if it's still a sin, even though no real money is lost. What is lost in this case are virtual assets.

Answer:

What is being gambled are things that have no value, though it did cost you time and game playing to accumulate the points being gambled. However, there is a problem with influence. The game is teaching the players that gambling is acceptable and for some that will spill over to real life.
