I don't know if this is a good idea or not, as most portals don't require any money up front (though they do tend to rape you on the back end, don't they?), but I'm willing to keep an open mind.
I have to say I'm intrigued by the prospect of being able to buy my way onto a top ten list.
1: What kind of traffic are you getting? Any (official) docs on that?
2: You're not offering the ability to be listed on the "Hot Spot" and "Interesting & Fun" sections at the same time?
1: I'm not comfortable paying to be listed on a website that has random ads (Ads by Google). If I wanted my game to compete against ads there are plenty of "Free Submission" sites out there.
2: Your site's layout needs to be much more appealing to the target audience.
