    I've been looking for some threads on running crypto casinos/gambling sites. I'm looking to invest or buy into one, but even though the competition's fierce it seems there's not much out there. Either people who run them are much less open about it (in comparison to mining or faucet sites or the usual) or there's much less who run successful ones. If you do run one, how are the numbers looking? How much time did you have to put into marketing? Obviously I'm not looking for spoonfeeding and don't care on HOW TO start a casino or how to run one, but more so I'm just curious about the ROIs, profitability, rates, etc. There's gotta be a few people here who are involved in that. And I'm mainly interested in the actual running.. not gambling.

    I have been investing in the burst casino with burst assets.
    It's super easy because you can buy shares right on the burstcoin dashboard and you are paid weekly dividends. Definitely pretty cool and worth looking into.

    I'll tell you what's going on with them. I've wanted to make a game site for a long time. I have some really good domains for it. Here's the good and the bad...

    Bitcoin gambling games do very good. Which ones do the best? Well, you have the usual casino games (Roulette, Poker, etc.). Those games do good and if you want to setup a site like that, it's not that hard. You can buy a script to do it. Why don't more people do it? For those kinds of games, there are already popular sites out there for it. You'd have to compete with them and nobody wants to do that with a clone script. Not that you can't but it's not something I would want to do. So where's the real money at? The most successful BTC game sites are the ones with unique games. I've seen a cool plinko-type game that had a crazy amount of people using it and big wagers. Everyone could see the wagers coming in and the game piece falling down. There are a few similar sits like that and that's what I would do. Why aren't there a lot of those? Why haven't I done it yet? It's hard to program. That being said, here's how it's done...

    • A fun but simple Canvas/WebGL game is made (Hard)
    • The game sever is coded so that each day a table of game moves are generated that dictates how each play will turn out, a hash is taken of all the moves altogether as soon as they're generated and posted on the site.
    • As soon as the user pays, one of the game move entries are used and the game then shows the game piece moving along the route dictated by that entry.
    • After each day, the game moves are published to the site. Hashing them will produce the same hash that was posted earlier in the day. Everyone then knows the game is fair.
    I don't have time to do it right now. Not for free anyway.
