Re: My home casino

I'm from Kansas, I'm thinking about getting in my 92 toyota tercel with some sunscreen and a lawnchair, and driving to san diego. I'll go to the home casino, get some free comped fast food, and sit out on the law with a stop watch, to time exactly when the van of armed robbers shows up at your door (im excited i need a tan anways)

WoooHooo. This is too good. Do you honor the comp card from Caesar's Indiana?? You got to have the all you can eat seafood buffet on Friday's or you'll never make it.
Again, too funny. Why can't I stop thinking of that scene from Risky Business when Cruise is giving his business plan discourse to his class about his brothel. Oh, maybe you could have one of those too!

robbed

if this ever actually happens (which it won't) it will be robbed within days. some hooded guy with a BB gun will come in, make this 17 year old piss his pants, take the $5.75 profit he made through raking his friends' $25 NL game, shoot him, tie up his dad, f his mom, and leave.

all said and done, don't do it.

I can't believe this thread is still alive! Bumping it=good idea. I hope one day the OP comes back and describes how he built a multibillion dollar casino empire from the meager beginings in his parents basement

Re: My home casino

Tworooks,


Yesterday at a local trade center I saw a folding poker table for $100. It seated at least six people. You should try to find some of these. It also had drink holders!

Re: My home casino

I like that entepeneur kinda moxy.

Dear god just dont serve booze to minors. Specially without a permit.

DO NOT use flyers to advertise youll get nabbed real quick. The "manager" of our local apartment run casino blanketed campus with flyers, and next thing you know he had cops chilling across the street from his house everynight.

You've inspired me to open a bootleg strip club. I need to go make some calls.

Good luck.

Re: My home casino

Just thought I would add in high schools two of my good friends (both Jews) ran the Jewcino. Mostly two tables of blackjack, also a little roulette. They did quite well for themselves over the course of our senior year. They had their own chips, nice cards, nice tables, shoes, and acted very professionally. There were never any problems, the cops never came, and no one got upset over losing.

Re: My home casino

Seriously, you need to look at your risks here kid. There are a few questions you should ask yourself. Here goes... Do you love your parents? Do you value your uh... "other" virginity? Do you like owning things? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should seriously rethink your idea. Here's the why... If you got busted for: running an illegal casino (multiple counts - felony offense), serving alcohol without a permit (multiple counts - felony offense), serving alcohol to a minor (multiple accounts - misdemeanor or felony depending on if any of them got into an accident or anything from the alcohol you provided), several conspiracy charges could be brought (some felony, some misdemeanor), and then if you are drinking you can throw another misdemeanor on the pile. Now... All of those felonies, if your parents are there, they too are implicated and can (and likely will) go to jail as well as you (where I am sure you would probably lose your... uh... "other" virginity). Now, on to the owning things... Why would ANY robber anywhere near you even hesitate on robbing you, of EVERY LAST THING IN YOUR HOUSE...? Because, here is the catch... You really can't exactly call the cops and tell them, "officer, I was running an illegal casino, and some robbers came in and took all of my chips, all the money, our tv, computer, all my moms jewelry and my dignity..." Because it will bring you right back to my first point if you did... When it comes down to it, out of the stupid ways a teenager could make money illegally? This has to be WAY up there on the list...

Re: My home casino

Not familiar with California gaming law, but even if you are in a state that allows gambling if you are going to set up a card room and take a rake you need to be registered with the gaming counsel. Of course, you say you are a minor so playing for real money is breaking the law already, so good luck with this, don't get caught.

Re: My home casino

this is very illegal. you will go to jail and you will get busted. if you insist on trying, i reccomend the following:

1. get stamped, unique chips
2. get competent dealers. either pros, or non-trained but very good dealers /experienced poker players. you want FAST shuffling, competent dealing, knowledge of rules, etc
3. get at least large, intimidating person as a security guard
4. offer a promo system to keep people coming back.
5. consider uniforms, or some dress code (uniform) for employees

Re: My home casino

I hate to reopen any discussion in this thread, but perhaps this will be a constructive resurrection/hijack.
I don't think it's a lock he gets busted. Maybe California is different in terms of law enforcement, but here (in in central IN) I know of three or four "cardrooms" that are successful and have never been busted.
I think the key is to keep it as low key as possible. Most people aren't prone to violence, especially over a 100NL game, and thus the need for a bouncer isn't that great. Also the real important part is to keep it fairly small. All of the places I know of have three or fewer tables and can avoid alot of traffic by limiting their games to 27 or fewer players.
Just my attempt at constructive input, feel free (and encouraged) to correct whatever I may have been wrong on.

Please let us know how this turns out. You have given me the strength and courage that I needed to finally go ahead with my own dream. I am going to open a bank in my basement. I have really been struggling, trying to decide if I should make it a state bank or a full-on "NATIONAL" one. I think I'm going National. There's more money in that. Thank you tworooks for finally getting me off the fence and in action mode. If you ever need an unsecured loan, contact me.
thank you... I read this entire thread and didn't laugh out loud til I read this. excellent post


Me too... classic.
