Here's an e-mail from one of the regular players

Nice one OP. Now make it an easy to use website. Good idea and makes the grannies happy too.
>>
Seems like a kindhearted idea. Good on ya. As I was reading I was surely expecting you to take their money or something with this being 4chan and all...
>>
>>1038238
Yeah I'm thinking about creating a chat box, with accounts for individual players. I don't know how though, I might want to hire some programmer who won't snitch on me

Here's a sheet from my starting days. The USD amount is the bankroll for the night, and the blurred is the winner of the night.

start outsourcing the hosting so you can focus on scaling.
>>
>>1038234
Shit, this isn't bad money for someone your age. Save whatever you can get and go the route you want to take. At this stage, only you know the best course of action to take. Nobody on /biz/, better yet (guesstimation) 99% of the web won't know the best direction for you to take in regards to an online old woman bingo group.

Do what you need to do to expand your earnings and have your bingo shit be able to become marketed to more people.

Ask yourself this, "okay, one old person wanted to invite more people. Why did he/she do that and what can I do to capitalize on this?" You should be following up with everyone that plays this bingo shit. Companies do questionnaires for a reason anon.

I will take your advice!

At this moment I feel like I'm not ready to handle the big moneys, though. I might want to finish high school first

>Online bingo

Is this not already a thing?

How is this not on Twitch?
>>
>>1038271
I'm not entirely sure that twitch allows civilians to run real money gambling on their servers. I run my own streaming service intended for this only.
>>
>>1038234

This is technically gambling, Paypal will shut you down as soon as they find out, so don't keep any money in the account.
>>
>>1038456
Fuck Pay Pal. Use Payoneer or Paxum, op
>>
>>1038270
This is illegal. The more you scale and advertise, the more attention you're going to draw. I'd keep things small. All it takes is one relative of one of these old hags to realize that she's spending a hundred or two per month on this and you'll be paying more to lawyers than you ever made. I get the allure of easy money but if you are in a Western country you better watch your ass.
>>
>>1038544
OP here. I know it's illegal, but I don't really care because where I live (eastern europe) the police are too busy to investigate this type of activity.

Besides, I am fine with my current player base. I don't get rich from doing this, but it pretty much pays for everything I need as I'm still living with my parents.

Of course I am also veru careful. I use a VPN service, and I cashout my earnings by buying gift cards and reselling them.

Thanks for watching out for me though!

>Old women
>technology
>niche alternative payment sites.

If OP knows whats best for him he will use PayPal till they shut him down. Ease of use and established makes old people happy.
>>
>>1038234

Do you take bitcoin?
>>
>>1038234
Good job OP, keep it simple like this
I was thinking about doing a similar thing with my grandma's roulette set: my friends are basically addicted to gambling and casino, I wanna capitalize on that. What I would do is I would invite a few friends home, with an entry fee of 10$ or something like that to create some fund. They would then buy their chips normally and bet against me. Perhaps at the end of the night if no one cashed me out I could give back the fee. Thoughts, suggestions?
>>
>>1038247
You can easily insert an IRC chatbox on your site without real knowledge desu.
>>
>>1038726
Chatango might be better considering the elderly user base
>>
>>1038234
I was thinking of doing the same but doing more than just bingo, i'll see how it goes but good on you anon. I'm also 18
>>
>>1038234
Hahaha thats awesome man

>It's illegal to host Bingo for old people

God Bless the West.
>>
You're going to get fucked by regulation if you get any bigger.
>>
>>1038247
try a chatango group. easy to sign up on as it doesnt require an email verification. just put in the name, pass, fake email and boom you have a user account.
>>
>>1038270
dude, you're in high school and have you whole life in front of you. Is a couple hundred bucks worth potentially getting caught and getting in big trouble? Who tf worth something would hire you with that on your record? Its your life anon, call me a fag idgaf. Think bro
>>
>>1039586
nvm, just read you live in eastern Europe. anyway, gl scamming old people lol
>>
Op don't do this your going to get caught

You're pretty much running an illegal online gambling ring
>>
Please tell me all these fag calling "OMFG op you are doing bad stuff" are trolls. There are people doing worst stuff like selling hard drugs and haven't been caught why will the fed waste their time after this guy who is just making ten bucks per day.
>>

>Illegal online granny bingo gambling ring

This is some cookie clicker
tier shit.
>>
>>1039761
I don't get what's even bad about this. As I was reading the thread I thought he was going to say he scams them... But really is just a little game for some lonely grannies. Wtf is illegal about that?

Jesus christ OP you have blood on your hands now

Not for playing. I sometimes sell the gift cards for bitcoin, though. Old people can't into bitcoin, it's a miracle they even have PayPal.
