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.
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.
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.
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!
>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.
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?
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
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.
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?
