    Would you play an online game where you could make money?

    Would you play an online game, if it was strategy based, massively multiplayer, and could earn money? Bear in mind that the same money that you earn would also be at risk during the game?

    Think Risk...with chips.

    Everyone would, but that's not possible because the creator would then pay members their earned money. But it's a good idea ;-)

    Well, you can make money on Second Life, which is a sort of MMO/Virtual reality simulation. There's also Entropia Universe which has a real cash economy.

    I gave Second Life a try but couldn't get into it. Never played Entropia. I guess if its done right, it could work.

    You actually can make lots of money playing a game called Entropia universe! Sadly, making money in this game would realistically involve a large initial investment.

    In Entropia universe you can use real money to purchase PED's. You can use these PED's to invest in other business opportunities and later cash them out for real hard cash.

    This is a little out of date, but here is the most expensive virtual item ever sold.

    If I didn't have to pay anything, and if it was a fun game, I would try it.

    You can earn money from alot of games, but not through playing, but actually trading stuff. Team Fortress 2 is worth over 10 million dollars, but it's because the value the cosmetic items in it hold. Some cosmetic items have offers of 1300$, which is low.
