The game of Goalscorer – a social game of skill or a socially responsible gambling game?

Games of skill are usually not classed as gambling, unlike games of chance. As there is usually an element of chance in most games the level of chance should not be so significant as to influence the outcome of the game, because if it does such a game would then be classed as gambling.

There may be those who suggest that the Goalscorer game should be classed as gambling if players can win or lose money depending on the outcome of each game. However, the level of chance is present only where 9 of each player’s 12 player counters are dealt at the start of the game and this factor does not significantly influence the strategy each player adopts to winning the game.
