I'm wondering what sort of code is implemented when creating an online casino / sportsbook web-site. I've been looking into a start-up, but refuse to pay 100k for software, especially if my game programming friends can help me out.
What sort of code is used? C, C++, PHP, Perl, Ruby, etc.
I ran a quick search of the forums and couldn't really find any concrete answers. There is no way that every major online casino shells out 100 grand on top of marketing and payouts to start a legitimate gambling website.
I'd like to run poker and most all variations of the game, and most all casino games, including online slots. I'd also like to develop a web 2.0 sportsbook feature.
I don't want my sourcecode to replicate or copy the current online gambling regime, I think that they're bland and boring. The colors are run together and they're too "loose" for my taste. I'd like to develop a cleaner, more ergonomic online casino.
Any tips or posts I can read? Thanks for the help.
