    Ok, so first things first, i have to admit, i like to gamble.
    Im getting by pretty well, meaning my IM income is larger than what i gamble:D
    But today i had an idea.
    I live in germany, and while real Casinos are very rare (operated by the state) we do have a lot of gambling halls here. The ones with the machines you know?

    Now the people going there are hardcore gamblers. They know they cant win and they still go there and believe me they lose A LOT of money in those every day.(i never go)
    Now most of them are pretty addicted, so they would do alot for 5? or maybe 10?.
    Now my idea:
    I would go in and talk to one of the owners of one of the halls and offer him the following:
    He lets me set up a laptop / computer / website in his hall, and for every customer that enteres, he asks him/her if he/she would like to participate, which means giving away their email adress. When they do, they will be send a coupon for 5? or 10? in cash to play at the hall. (meaning many of the players would give their email)
    Those 5? or 10? would be paid for by me, and in return i get the player's emails.
    -> Again, those guys are hardcore gamblers, so they would propably also gamble online, which is exactly what i would promote to them via email.
    Now
    a) what do you think?
    b) how much could one pay for 1 email address of some hardcore gambler?
    c) Do you guys gamble?

    Hoping for some input.

    The idea is nice but I think your price is a bit high...And you won't get a lot of email adresses unless its a very very big hall.
    I used to gamble but I don't practice that sport anymore :p

    Nah, to much work.

    Make little business cards that you can put on the machines, print your website with poker affiliates (or other things) and tell them that they can get 100$ of bonus money if they sign up today or something similiar (a lot of poker affiliates offer bonus money) and just pay the owner for setting the business cards on the poker machines.

    Why little business cards? Because they are practical and fit in your pocket or wallet so you can take them home.

    After they get on your site make the magic happen

    Then try something similar to gambling.

    Open a .com site "bestpokergirls" with pictures of hot poker girls (internet is ful of them)
    Make a visit card with some hot girls and a link to your site, like "see some more pictures of girls that like gambling, just like you" - promote thous visit cards in that casino where you go.

    After that put on your site pictures of hot girls and a content locker that asks for your mail because "you will get updates on hot girls that like poker"

    And don't forget to add some dating affiliates to

    I mean, you got the idea, figure something out :)
