Default Play games, help me, and maybe win some money

Howdy all,

I am an investor in a new gaming site that is currently in beta. We are getting ready to launch but are trying to recreate a software bug so it can be fixed before launch and could use some help (basically by getting more players at one time).

We are running 24 hours of tournaments on Saturday, May 4 in hopes of recreating the bug so if you want to play tournament style (i.e. you play against other players, not the house) black jack, baccarat and/or poker for free and potentially win some money (for both you and for charity) please visit our beta site and register to play.

For those that want a little more info:

Games currently available are black jack, baccarat and poker. All games are free and are played tournament style, which means you are playing against the other players at your table, not against the house.

Qualifying games are available 24/7. Each qualifying game has 2 or 4 players. Short video ad breaks are shown during the qualifying game only. Each ad is followed by a multiple-choice question. Get it right and you win more chips, strengthening your position. (This is how we pay for the tournament prizes.)

Finishing in the top half of a qualifying game gives you an entry to be used for an upcoming tournament. At the moment, we have $100 tournaments each night alternating between black jack, baccarat and poker (see the schedule on the website) plus we have 24 hours of (continuous) tournaments this coming Saturday, May 4. Prizes are paid to both the winners as well as the registered charity of the winners' choice.

Once we actually launch the site, the # of games will be increasing (i.e. we will be adding different games, not just casino style games), the # of tournaments and opportunities to win money will be increasing and the prize pools will be increasing (significantly).

Please keep in mind the test site is not the final product, it is for testing the back-end software. Once we launch, the look and feel will be changing significantly (and an app will be available for download).

Thanks for your help!

I really hope the questions after the ads are completely unrelated to the ads. I'm envisioning an ad for some Amazon product, and then a question about rotating a curve around the Y axis and finding the volume.

I want to thank anyone who has tried to register so far.

It looks like there is an issue with the registration process but there is a workaround. If you entered your info and got an error message saying you already have an account it is because the registration was successful. Your username should be your email address without the site name (i.e. whatever is before the @ symbol) or you can click the forgot username link to have the username sent to your email address. Once you know your username, you can click the forgot password link to "reset" your password and it should work.

I appreciate the help and good luck!

The registration issue should be fixed (it was a slow network issue). 24 hours of free rolls starts at 2 AM Eastern tonight.

TIA!
