*It is a form of gambling. The hidden cost is the extra membership people will pay (IRL money). How many more players will log in everyday now since that update? You'll be surprised.
*"below zero chance": Figurative way of speech obviously...

Membership isn't a cost of playing Squeal. You don't need membership to play and the benefits of members aren't gambling.

People will prolong their membership because they unconsciously feel there's something in the game now for them (FTP is worth less with just one chance, and the rewards are considerably worse).
So it's a cost, but a hidden one and most people don't see that one. Why else would Jagex add something like this? To make the game better... No. To keep players logging in for what they would see as something awesome. Other gaming companies just laugh when Jagex brings out content like this. RuneScape has lost the title of adventure game long ago already...

No, they won't. You're like 90% of the RS playerbase who over reacts to updates. This is not gambling.

It's so hidden you can't see it even when you explain it.

When the Squeal of Fortune came out I was trying to time the spin so it would land near the 'Rare' or 'Uncommon', but always ended up beside it. So basically I gave up and pressed the red button which lands me on lamps frequently which I don't mind. :-)
