Double Whammy... You could introduce new casino games (slots or tables) and ask people to do a write up similar to how Mike does them, with expected returns, etc. I think it would be a top level report, because actually calculating the basic strategies for things like new table games would be quite difficult for the average user (and we wouldn't want to put Mike out of a job =P). BUT, just kind of copying Mike's format and running the numbers still takes effort and work to find the return of the game.



Sure let's take a forum with 8280 active members and run a contest that applies to about 9 of them

I think Axel is stalking me on the forums. Already told him I'd put out if he just buys dinner. Geez.

... post your proposals...


Thank you for considering this Zuga. I think everyone enjoys getting a chance to win something.

Here are a couple of ideas:
- There are usually a couple of major sports events every month. You can post an event and readers submit their predictions. e.g. What will the final score of Cleveland vs. Golden State game 1?
- There are also lesser known events that may require readers to do some research to handicap: Las Vegas 51's baseball, WNBA, Bundesliga, X-Games...
- Have a "Top Ten" or "Top 7" contest where readers send in responses to a poll topic with a short write up. Polls can be serious, "Best Poker Room Chairs", "Favorite Hotel Pool"; or humorous, "Rejected Names for the Raiders New Stadium" ... Winning entries judged by your staff, or chosen at random from all valid submissions.
America is all about speed. Hot, nasty, bad-ass speed. - Eleanor Roosevelt, 1936

I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes; When you put me on the Wolverine up to Annandale; It was still September When your daddy was quite surprised; To find you with the working girls in the county jail; I was smoking with the boys upstairs when I Heard about the whole affair;I said oh no William and Mary won't do

Contest ideas.

1. Have a contest where you ask for contest ideas. Best idea wins a small cash prize.
2. Best original poem on gambling, Vegas or related topic.
3. Best sad story/anecdote about gambling.
4. Funniest joke about gambling (or any other topic)
4. Worst (or best) idea for a new themed Hotel/Casino for the strip.
5. Photo contests: most beautiful (artful) original photo of a casino
6. Most creative way to Change (add to and/or subtract from) a standard deck of cards - with an example of application to some game
7. Funniest variant of Texas Hold'em - define a set of rules or game concept for a game of hold'em that is not named after Texas, but instead is named after some other location (or even person, or whatever)
8. Weirdest gadget or device/object currently for sale on the internet.

Ages ago sites like party poker used to have restricted free rolls available to members of private groups.
