You'd be better off with two currencies, with the bought chips lasting much longer (and amount of time more proportionate to the cost of buying them)



Sound's like a rigged game to me...

Yes.

It could be made more explicit that the bought chips get to play on a different table.

Besides, its a casino (sim), if you expect something other than rigged - well, come over here, I've got this great thing to sell to you! :)

This actually reminds me of a site I found a few months ago that I can't seem to pull up again.

Sorry if this is a bit off-topic, but it was a game developer site with a lot of ties to legal gambling industries around the world. It was a network designed so that developers could make games for legal gambling websites and casinos around the world, with the network and you splitting the money with the casino or website running it.

If I could just find it again :P I actually can't believe I can't find it again considering that I have actually come across it twice by accident before (quite a feat considering this is the Internet).

I know you said this isn't about money, but for a game dev looking to make some extra money, that seems like probably the best way if you could get approved. People just dump money into those things, so even if you just got 15% of the take, that would beat the socks off of trying to make extra money on an app store.

If I could get approved for some sort of gambling app/program/website. I would do it in a heart beat.

Well, try not to find it, Jack, and then you'll find it! :)

I'm curious about what you're talking about and would like to see more on it.

Again, I am really surprised I can't find it again. I am sure I am just having a hard time unlocking the Google gods' correct phrase to get it. I will see what I can come up with.

And yes, maybe the way to find it is to stop looking so I just come across it again lol.

I don't think it would be shut down, considering it seemed extremely legit (they were just outsourcing work already being done daily all over the world). I just think I can't find the right combination of words to find it.

I have just taken Callen's advice to stop looking for it, and hope I come across it again soon.
