Some of you may know that I have a baseball site I am active in. There are a handful of us that share in the management and expenses of maintaining the site. This is not a lot of money yearly and is just a way to get together for game time chat, have posting boards and trash the yankees (always small caps). Recently our site was offered a small amount of money to allow online gaming. Here is the latest missive:
Thanks for your reply,
I have talked to my supervisor as I like your site and she is ready to increase the original prize of 25USD for three months to $40 for 3 months. I really hope we can work it out and have a long term business relationship between us.
Please let me know if you have any questions
Looking forward to hear from you
I have not included the name of the person involved but my understanding is that the offer will now be $100 for three months. Each time an offer is made we reject it. In fact an email to members show a uninversal rejection.
Online gaming offers a burgening business. In a previous incarnation of middleborocasino.com I had an extensive post on online gaming on which I had actually done legitimate research. The returns to the player were actually higher than in traditional casino settings - less expense, but I had some real problems with the whole concept. Just concerned about the ease with which money can disappear, lack of tax income and ease of access for minors to highlight a few. You may agree, disagree or be neutral.
