Paying Money To Enter A Contest. Is It Gambling?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Paying money to enter a contest in which the winner wins some sort of prize. Is it considered gambling and therefore haraam? Examples I can think of, Chuck E. Cheese, video game or sports tournaments, etc.

I don't think that's gambling.  Gambling would be if you tell someone that the winner of the game gets $$.  If you're paying to play, that's not really gambling.  If you wanted to play basketball with a team in a tournament, and you pay for your team to play, that wouldn't be gambling because you're paying for the costs of running the tournament.  Even if you get a prize, it's not gambling in my opinion.
