Hello Everybody,

I'm one of the creators of Big Pineapple Poker. Our game has gone through all the steps to hit the casino floors or online gaming platforms. My business partners and I are looking to get licensed under a revenue share agreement with an online casino. At this point we're stuck with a great game and don't know where to start. We reside in Miami and work full time jobs with the incapabilities of being able to travel at the moment to present our game to Vegas table game directors and other big markets. Any feedback on how we can get this game going would be greatly appreciated, even some feedback on what you guys think about the game would be amazing. Thank you guys

You can find the game on youtube under

"A NEW GAME THATS TOO GOOD! (BIG PINEAPPLE)"

You really only have 1 way to get this game into casinos. The big 2 (Shufflemaster and Galaxy) won't want it because it's basically a copy of what they have. You have to give it to a smaller game distributor that is hungry. Then they can push it as a better version of UTH and try and gets some floor space as a cheaper alternative.

You are very unlikely to succeed.

Online might be the cheaper and easier way to go. Still probably not a lot of money to be made there, but it will be the least likely way to drain your bank account and time.

With the smaller game distributor, how would I find a company that痴 willing to distribute it? I致e checked online and haven稚 found anybody. I致e heard the split can be 80/20, I壇 be open to this option. We had somebody who found us a deal before but had only offered us 5% and we declined.

You should have taken the 5%.

An unknown game inventor with an unproven game is in no position to expect ANYTHING.

Who was the distributor that offered 5%? I壇 be happy to offer them my two games.

You are now probably in the 1% or less that get offered anything. 80/20 would most likely be for a game that has installs already.

I'd probably take the 5% with an escelater clause based on installs and a drop dead date that if they dont have a certain amount of installs by a date (2 years/3 years), the deal is done. You said you are no position to do this yourself, so if you have a reputable company willing to try, that's pretty good.

As the common sense and respect for others rise, so does my patience.

There are companies that can work with you to get your game on a platform like DK or FanDuel (there are a small handful they work with). However, you are going to probably have to have some form of online demo to convince them your game has some promise. Then you are going to have to front a lot of money to build out software that can run on the target platform that GLI will approve, I have had only initial conversations around this, my guess is they can recommend some companies with experience in this, but it sounded like ballpark to get something to market would be very close to six figures, if not more. You would then get a test run on that site for a few months, during that time you will get paid royalties based on play (not sure on percentages, or how that works). If it does well it can be expanded to other platforms as well, if not, you "might" get one more shot on a different platform.
