I'm in kind of a unique position to do this, what with having casino software all ready to go but no casino launched as-of-now. (Can't take deposits, not yet licensed, no players on the site). So:

If you're looking for a unique way to raise money for a charity organization accredited by CM, I'd like to help. I can set up a lockout on our software, where for an evening or up to 12 hours it will only be accessible to the people who donate beforehand. You have to work out the donations and prepare a list of usernames and passwords for people who're invited to the event. Donors can have free run of the casino (23 games including poker variants) with a fixed amount of play cash, and hourly updated rankings of who's won the most, so that prizes can be awarded to the winners at the end. Poker tournaments can be set up as well.

There are a couple of ground rules. People in the event have to start with the same amount of play cash (it can't be based on how much they donate). I'm not responsible for prizes, promotion, etc., or for taking donations as we don't have the facility for that. You'll have to take the donations and pass the signup sheet to me to enter the players manually. They don't have to provide personal information, but an email address will be required. I will not and cannot get any money out of doing this. The charity must be a nonprofit and must be one of the ones accredited here.

I'm making this offer available now for dates throughout July. I may only be able to do this once or twice depending on how much manual work turns out to be involved, but I'd like to give it a shot!

Let me know if you're interested.

What if anyone will donate $xxx - you will open an account in your casino with $xxx available for playing your games? Much easier IMO.

I can't do that if there are going to be prizes. If there are prizes then everyone in the tournament has to start with the same amount of credits, and the donation amount can't affect the number of credits the player starts with. That makes it a skill-based prize game for charity instead of a form of gambling.

It's better for the charity and more fun anyway, if everyone starts with the same chances of winning. But the reason we can't cross that line is that our test server is in the US and we're not licensed yet in Europe, and the charity would probably want to include US donors, so we'd be breaking the law if we allowed the chances of winning to be dictated by the amount donated.
