Money money money

Post by p0is0ned_fl0wer » Thu May 03, 2007 4:15 am

:twisted:

I know I kind of touched on this on DP's post about practice makes pefect...but seriously is there anyway we can get a pay per side to the site.? I understand that HW is a fun family site and the majority do play for exactly that fun but there are certainly a handful and possibly more who would be willing to actually play spades for money.

I'm not sure what the logistics of it actually are with regards to the software..obviously an anti cheating mechanism would be needed. Would this be too costly for SCE to run? Or would it be possible to make up for this with a commission based structure by taking a small percentage of the earnings or by having some form of handling fee for each game played?

How many would actually be interested in this if it were feasible?

Any thoughts are most welcome.

Not to say we would never concider it, but it would open a can of worms. There is no way to enitrely stop cheating and when money is on the line that makes is pretty serious.

Lol.. hell I don't want to have to do ma hair ma make up or get dressed to play spades..lmao. I know from other sites they do have anti cheat programmes..yes nothing is infallible and yes again i'm sure there could be some that would find away round it..but that would apply to any online gambling site. I'm glad to hear you haven't ruled it out anyway!

Would this not be a problem for HW if I am not mistaken HW is based out of California. The last time I checked only the Tribes on Indian land could gamble in California.

Now if you move your main office and servers to NV like Las Vegas or if you want cooler weather Reno NV would be better. Then I don't think you would run into a gambling problem.

Hardwood is base out of Oregon BTW.... I seriously doubt HW would move offices since the owner and staff all live local.

I know of another site that has a program where if you log onto any of your messengers it shows. Could do an automatic DQ if you log onto anything. One question tho, Isnt gambiling online illegal in the USA??? I know the poker site I play for just did away with any gambiling for the USA residents.

I would however luv to be able to play for money..hehe
