    Hello everyone i have a client who want me to create a poker games site.
    and since this is my first time to take a project like this . I would like to ask from some of the expert here,how much is the usual cost for the entire project? and also if there is any poker software that will just have to be integrate in the site? and also i want to know how much is the license for the poker program if it exist?

    I am noob at this stuff any advice or suggestion are greatly appreciated

    I'm not sure where to start here...

    I've seen poker scripts/gaming platforms that go for a few thousand up to $20,000+ but have not had experience with them myself. Overall you can plan on it being a pretty large project. Do some research on Google and you'll come across them.

    The reputable companies will assign you a software engineer that helps throughout. But it will cost you.

    My advice is to talk you client out of it. Poker is a HIGHLY competitive niche to get into and highly regulated. If they do not have the connections and an endless bankroll to market and get it off the ground then it is pointless in my opinion.

    Even with the right budget it will still be an upward battle the whole way.

    Talk to them about maybe starting a poker forum/membership site where they can teach poker skills, etc. and host private poker rooms on existing platforms like Pokerstars, Bodog, etc. They all let you host private games/tournaments.

    Just my two cents.


    EDIT: If he is just looking for video poker/video casino type stuff then yeah Maurisa is spot on. You can sign up with a number of online "casinos" that will let you brand your own network based off of their platform as well. They take a cut of course. OR you can buy a script and do things that way.

    Also, make sure your client is aware of the legalities of this based on where they will operate out of.

    my client specifically wants to have this kind of site where they can play some poker with his friend meaning this is just strictly private and limited to their circle.

    Is he looking to spend $50k minimum? If not, this definitely isn't for him. Just join other sites already established and password protect the table. Free and problem solved! :cool:
