    Question

    There is this site called Buskerwars.com and the admin of that site wants to have games in it like poker, slots, blackjack,..etc. My question is what do I have to learn for me to be able to code the games for him? Also he wants it so that someone in buskerwars can take money out of there bank in the game and go into a poker table and use the money from buskerwars and that people can make private tables for 1 vs 1.

    You need Flash. (Well, you can make card games with straight HTML/JS too.)

    For real banking transactions, you also need some server-side programming language, like Java.

    And to make it secure, you need way more experience with such systems than you have shown.
    All the buzzt!

    This can be done in C++ via third party libraries and protocols. However I doubt the common user will be able to get access to them.

    I think he means using the game bank, not real world banks.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Yeah, that's what I meant the game money not real life money.

    Seek legal advice.

    If there is any possibility of the admin losing serious cash through this venture, and if you are not well-qualified, then you'd better talk to a lawyer first.

    Flash works, but it's not secure and can be cracked very easily. You should use server-side PHP for any money processing.

    Ah, so you're going flash. Use a version that older computers can play for better market potential. Win98, etc. should be able to play your little tetris game.
