    You want to start a play money poker website?

    And what to do you mean by 'client'? Like the software that runs on your servers that people play with? Didn't have to google too much to find quite many of those. Go find out about the pricing, research mate, research.

    I think you may be underestimating the amount of work and money you would have to put into such a project.

    Have you done any research whatsoever?

    For example:

    1. Security - how are you going to stop clever people like Elliot305 from claiming the 'Top 100' prizes every month?
    2. Offering prizes could still require a gaming license, depending on your country - have you researched the costs involved?
    3. How are you going to fund the prizes?
    4. Are you going to develop your own Poker software, or go down the licensing route?
    5. Have you even looked into whether there is a white label poker system available?
    6. Do you think just offering a free-to-play Poker game is enough to attract and retain visitors?

    You should probably start with a play money app on facebook and go from there.

    Contact a programmer and let him make custom software for you to your poker room eith play money.
    So, how you think this can be profitable for you? How monetize this site?

    If that's your first project, i believe you went to the wrong direction...
    How are you planning to monetize? how much do you have available for investing in this project?

    This is a huge project, I don't think you know what you're getting into.

    If this is your first project, stop right here. It will be a super complex and expensive project. You can't just create a poker site and expect to make money. Start with something small and go up from there.

    If you don't have enough money, you should stop right now, this is huge project that will cost a lot of money and time.

    Here is one of the first steps I would be taking, making poker review sites where I could collect potential players, and make money to fund the project. How much do you have to put into this project? Because to even be able to be in with a chance, I guess you are looking at well above £50k.

    Who is Elliot305 ? a Bot ?
    1st - just when somebody earned the price he have to verfity his account like they do that by other bookis or poker rooms and that price can be winned only 1 time after some time they will be able to play again for some price
    2st- No i do not have i told becouse i make it with play money there is no need to hava a license ... is there enyway to make that without a license (if i open the site from a country where that is no need it ... off shore hosting may be .. ??) may be to offer the price to diffrent way or may be not a money price .... may be a something like ipad iphone ...
    3st- I'm thinging whne they install the softwere, near to the buttons to come some ads
    4.Which is cheeper and better ?
    5. i'm looking right now for that system
    6. no i do not think i can attrackt the people with free play only that's why i'm thnking about the prices ...

    One question what is your budget? Or rather how much money you have right now without which you will survive if it all fails?
    Not making it seem impossible, but that's how one thinks in IM before starting a project.

    It is not a bad ide, but the investment is BIG. Gambling is addictive.
