Starting out in the gaming business

Even though gaming is a world-wide multi-billion business, competition is tough, getting your sites keywords placed in search engines and exposure is one of the key components to running a successful business, but that is not all you need, you must offer content to attract players and providing a niche in the market can give you some great advantages, when I first started out several years ago I ran a site solely for local players, promoting both online and live games, this was coupled with a live tournament business that ran hand-in-hand. With the advent of the original gaming laws introduced as to regards to poker in pubs I was forced to diversify and expand into the global market. I made a lot of mistakes along the way and got involved in a few "bad paying" rooms, in this business, reputation is everything, and by upholding an honest approach and with integrety you can build a successful business, however this isn't easy for someone new, what I would recommend to anyone is getting involved with the gaming portal webmasters association as soon as possible GPWA for short. Here you will meet like-minded people as well as find out who pays and who doesn't. You will receive their expertise for free and can save yourself a lot of hit and misses. Anyone who is interested in setting up a gaming site, please feel free to contact me and I can give you some more pointers. If you would like to check my site out my web address is http://www.furnesspoker.co.uk any conmments or critism is appreciated and if you would like help in setting up deals and accounts with poker bingo casino managers I can get you networked with the honest and hardworking ones

Interesting news is that recently Noblepoker took over r Tony G Poker on the same iPoker network and integrated it, you can now offer all your potential clients not only a $1000 depositors freeroll but also they can qualify for a $1800 tournament held every Sunday, with $1500 in cash and a $300 bounty on the Tony G himself. anyone interested in promoting this brand please contact me and I will put you directly in touch with their most active affiliate manager as well as help with any coding you need for your site.

Hi,

I am not 100% sure but 99.9% this is not doable without a license as Paul says. I think there are some ways round it like having a company registered and the web site hosted in Belize for example, but in my opinion you will be opening up some big problems for yourself, if you don't obtain a licence.

Regards

Harvey

You would certainly need to have a licence also you would need to check with Paypals t&c as to whether of not it was against their policies
The Gaming commission controls such activities both online and offline

http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/gambling_sectors/lotteries.aspx

Personally I think you would find too much red tape and costs to make this viable, I would certainly check out the rulings at the above site also look into PayPals rules as well, as they can and will freeze your account without notice.

Hello I just joined the group. I have a question please...I have a uk based website. I run a website with members, and I wanted to generate a lottery where the members would be allowed through PayPal to buy a ticket for £1.00. Then they would receive a random number. Then at a set date a random number would be selected, and the person with the number would then win what ever the volume of entries was less admin fee (paypal and holding fee). So of the £1.00 only 85pence would go in the pot. So if 500 people entered, the winner would not get £500.00 but £425.00. I do not know what to call this, so I used word lottery....can you tell me is this legal, can I run this and if so what would I need to do to legally run it? Please note this is online only! Anyone know if this is legal? Allowed? Doable?

there are various ways to promote,
A dedicated website,
Mailing Lists
Blogs
Banners on Site

The advantage by having a dedicated page is that you can add content that also helps with the SEO and keyword rankings
For example, my Free Bingo Cash page

gets a lot of hits from traffic-rich keyphrases such as
"Free Bingo Cash" "No Deposit Bingo" "90 Ball Bingo" etc - If you are just promoting through a banner only, your market is your existing traffic and if that is not gaming related you may not get many conversions. Of course blogs are also a FANTASTIC way to promote, for example if you do a search on google for "Free Rummy Cash" you will notice the top result is safecontests blog (Which is one of mine and links through to my site) the second one is of course mine too ;)

How many pages would I need? I am wondering if this would go on my business Blog.If not we do have a web site.

well the first thing to do is find a decent affiliate program, depending on what you want to promote, if you let me know what your looking for I will hook you up with the affiliate managers, their is no cost at all to start up
