I'd be more confident of that if they were betting real

When the costs to play are so low, the players have little
to lose. Where they need not even use their own names they
may not even be risking much by way of reputation or 
credibility. If the stakes aren't real who really cares?

Not yet.  Perhaps potentially if its developed. And if its
not developed soon, after being around for so long, perhaps
its flawed in other respects, or perhaps it will be developed
by other than Robin and co. By developers that have more
time and/or money to commit to it.
