New "Deadly Gambling" game lets you play Russian Roulette with no permanent downside.
Russian online games publisher Nikita Online is assisting Minsk-based games developer Oofsource to widen the reach of its new Russian Roulette game Deadly Gambling on the GameXP online network.
Deadly Gambling ( http://dgam.gamexp.ru/) boasts an intriguing mix of roulette mechanics with poker and PvP-components to create a virtual version of the infamous game in which opponents typically take turns in placing a single-bullet loaded gun to their heads and pulling the trigger.
Oofsource have developed this concept into an online wagering game in which players start by creating a character, and then enter a game lobby to select a virtual room, where they will find opponents and place their bets before starting individual challenges in which a single game session repeats five times.
Variables include misfires and false starts, and players can reload to play additional rounds. The developers have spiced up the original simple if fatal concept by designing-in opportunities to feed additional bullets into the gun on higher card hands in poker-blitz mode, along with a few special tricks to keep the game interesting.
The GameXP network boasts 11.5 million users, presenting a wide audience for Oofsource, an enterprise founded in 2011.
