    Default Gambling sites in different languages?

    hi all:

    I am wondering if any of you have gambling sites in other languages other than English? how's your result in terms of profits so far?

    thanks!

    Can't say I have the "site" in a different language... but I did add a couple pages with different languages and banners targeted to them. I have gotten some minimal traffic, but no conversions. Then again... my site doesn't get as much traffic as I'd like. I think it can be effective though as their's a market out there for online casinos in every lanuage.

    Great question.

    I've noticed 90 percent of the players I have had so far have all been asian-american players. I am currently building the website in chinese (traditional and simplified). Actually, the translations are not as bad as I thought.

    I think that it could be a good niche.

    When I get some results on effectiveness I'll share.

    my latest research shows that..
    some gambling portals ban IP from china because chinese gamblers are notorious of being cheaters...

    anyway, i will go ahead with the chinese site!

    China has a very big issue about internet censorship, people haven't free access to certain websites and online gambling is illegal. I wouldn't suggest you, maybe in a very long term i would.

    There are chinese everywhere: Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, US, Canada... etc etc. I ain't targeting china.

    I am building the chinese site as a long term project. I am planning to generate traffic, get newsletter subscribers, set up an online forum etc etc. When the China market is more mature I can monetize the traffic.

    Lol... but how far off is that from what the US government is trying to achieve?

    Anyway, I think if someone from China really wants to access an online casino they will know of (or find) ways around the censorship. And next to that there are quite large Chinese communities around the world which might be targetted at the same time.

    I guess it is a question of working out what it will cost to develop a site in Chinese (i.e. translation costs) and if that is worth the risk of not earning it all back.

    1Casinolisting is right. Through my research I am amazed that there are many surfers from china know the way to fly under the radar and break the cencorship!

    and the tips are available in many chinese websites...
