Just saw a newstory on this at http://abcnews.go.com/Business/movie...ry?id=10079023

What do you guys think? Just another online casino gimmick? Will you do it?

If it's only for 'play' then it could certainly be good fun.

The internet has facilitated the creation of marketplaces that try to ascertain the risk of seemingly irrelevant events . They only make sense if you use them as insurance, in this case if you work in the movie industry.
But I doubt that enough people play along. With only a few players involved you don't get a liquid market and it can indeed be only used for fun. But playing in a real casino or cents gambling with your friends is probably more fun.

Yep, if I want to gamble I'll play poker or blackjack
