Below are the important advantages of co-branded ACC/GameColony site as compared to the former Microsoft Zone cribbage:

Long before the United Kingdom had legalized gambling, cribbage was the only game that was allowed to be played for money in the pubs. Under the current 1968 UK Gaming Act, games classified as forms of skill (non-gambling) include cribbage, chess, dominoes, and bridge.

Cribbage is a card game where skill (as opposed to chance) is a predominant factor. That's why when players compete in Cribbage tournaments or games for cash prizes, they do not "gamble" -- according to the statutes of most US states, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". Playing cribbage for money is, thus, a "competitive entertainment" rather than "gambling". Skill plays a predominant role in the majority of hands in Cribbage and, especially over the long run, the more skilled player is destined to win more cash prizes!
