What don't you like about your current online poker site?
No real complaints
Would you play online poker on a site that had real cards and real dealers by way of video?
Hell no, that's a horrible idea. It'd be way slow which would kill one of the biggest advantages of playing online in the first place. I've gotta assume it would cost more in rake to play as well because live dealers cost more than computers... unless the site owners are doing this because they hate money in which case LOL. Plus live dealers (I'm one myself, so I can say this with authority) are prone to making mistakes. We live with it playing live because there's no other choice but cutting out misdeals is another one of the great things about playing online. Lastly I'm not a rigtard so I don't believe for a second that a live dealer will give me less bad beats.
Would you be interested in being able to talk to the dealer by the use of audio? What about other players?
Again, no. Unless they're making mistakes there shouldn't be any reason to talk to the dealer and I rarely talk to other players at the table online either - I can imagine a feature like that being a spectacular mess for people who multi-table BTW.
Would you use your web cam so other players could see you?
Um... no. Why would I want the other players to be able to see me? Another one of the great things about online poker is there are no tells
, letting other people see me would just reintroduce them. Plus I wouldn't be able to play in my underwear anymore and even if I did
use the feature properly what's to say the other players would? I might just be giving away information and not getting anything back in return.
Are you loyal to the site you play on right now? How could another company encourage you to try out their site?
Fairly loyal, yeah. To play somewhere else I'd want another site to have good fundamentals - easy deposit and withdrawl, large player pool, preferably lower rake than I'm paying now or good rakeback deals. Stupid bells and whistles like the ones discussed above don't interest me.
Would you be interested in being able to reserve a private table to organize a private game with your friends or poker buddies?
What is your gender? What country are you from?
Male / Australia
I think the biggest problem is the product you're talking about developing (if I'm reading between the lines correctly - actually I'm assuming this is an assignment for some kind of marketing or business management course, amirite?) already exists and it's called *drumroll* a live poker room
. People that want real cards with real dealers and real human interaction can play in them already. People play online for convenince, anonymity and the fast, mistake-free nature of the game.
