    Hi guys,

    Is it legal to hold private gambling games via email?

    We can invite are friends over for a game of poker but can it legally be achieved online?

    What if you have a website that advertises the game and sets the rules? I would presume this would be illegal because you are advertising an unregulated gambling game to the www .

    I have a fool proof idea that would appeal to everyone that likes to place a friendly bet. I can offer a 1 in 110 chance of winning $100. $10 will offer a 1 in 110 chance of winning 1000 via instant PayPal. A % will go to charity.

    I would place a good bet that your $$$ will be lost if you placed a bet on the mainstream lottery.

    Where is the line?

    PS, Mods, can you edit this thread if it is against regulations instead of deleting it? I'm on to something awesome here

    PS, I will post this in The Talk Club soon for a different perspective

    How is that foolproof?

    You have to convince 110 people to trust you enough to wire you $10 and then you make $100 from the venture less the charity percentage. To convince 110 strangers to send you $10 I reckon you'd need to send out around a hundred thousand spam emails or pay money to advertise. Hardly worth it and why would anyone send you money?
