Since Red Dead Redemption 2'S online mode just recently left beta, there have been newcomplies from bug fixes and balancing, to introducing new game modes. One of the newer modes is more likely than the game's single-player option with NPCs, some players are unable to join a table with others.
Users have been unable to play Poker in Red Dead Online, and it looks like the respective player's location plays a part in the matter. In areas where online gambling is considered illegal, players will not be able to join the game. Some of the controversy surrounding the restriction is playing poker Red Dead Online is done with in-game currency, and the option to use is missing.
As far as how microtransactions work in Red Dead Online At the time of this writing, gold has no correlation with funds used to play poker. There could be speculation that Rockstar is blocking the feature in certain regions to make sure that the future will not be removed. More, with the revenue stream seen from GTA Online the past five and a half years Red Dead Online will not look the same in the future.
Given its online mode just recently left status, it makes sense the current state of microtransactions Red Dead Online do not drastically affect gameplay. While they're still there, there's a chance in the future for Rockstar to incorporate microtransactions that would grant in-game currency for players. If this is the case, playing poker would surely break gambling laws in these areas, hence the decision to halt any potential problems right away.
Despite the fact that it is a popular feature, Rockstar is doing what it can to make the transition into a fully-fledged Red Dead Online as high quality as possible. Given the success of GTA Online after launch, Red Dead Redemption 2 he is looking for the foundation for its social infrastructure as smooth as it can.
