Can anyone steer me to a brief summary of the Purple Lounge Casino.

When and where was it founded, how much did it likely cost to create it and run it?
What games did it feature?

How long was it active and operational.

I'm not going to express any opinions as to the morality involved in the public lewdness incident that took place in an Orlando, FL nightclub or the morality of a woman who would perform such acts while her husband was watching, I'm solely interested in how the owner of the Purple Lounge Casino got to have 45 million dollars in what appears to have been less than two years.

Looks like you want to check the parent company, Mediacorp plc. (3rd link)

No, that seems to be a rip off entity also. I just want to know what it cost to set up an online casino with active online poker room.. and how on earth someone can make 45 million in so short a time period.

I think you answered your own question. They were scammers and cheats in the early days of online gambling and reaped the rewards of the cardroom market.

Three Card Monte in the digital age.

Collect from losers, never never ever pay a winner.
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

Only thing you have wrong is when you say there "were". They are still out there in full force if you are not careful.

Sounds good. Maybe its time I joined the Digital Age. Or did I miss the flood tide?

Here's the thing; there's an awful lot of talent on this board (and NOT a "lot of awful talent", thank you!). I think FleaStiff's got the right idea. Let's build a set in the barn and give 'em a show, Mickey!

I think these sites that are being set up to play legal poker in Nevada might be competitors to my neo-Purple rip off site I'd have to establish off shore somewhere. Perhaps I could cheat every one hundreth hand and make 4.5 million instead of 45 million dollars?

That'd be enough for me, Flea. Why be greedy?
