Is This a Thing Now? MMORPG Casino

Dragon’s Tale, a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG), in which a community of players can gamble online, is about to launch a beta version on July 12, 2013.

Game developer eGenesis, wants to make online gambling less of a solitary experience by creating a virtual fantasy casino world in 3D. Here, players take on an Avatar to assume a role as they gamble, and wager with bitcoins (BTC) when completing quests in different levels.

The quests are in the form of mini-games of chance that require gaming skills in order to increase the probabilities of winning. Although the site refers to the quests as casino games, the offerings are unlike those found in traditional casinos.

Instead of placing wagers on the outcome of slots, die, roulette and playing cards, players can amass BTCs by hurdling challenges such as tipping cows, matching Ming vases in a row, growing berries, fattening-up pigs to death and feeding evasive ducks, just to name a few. Players can also find BTCs in soldier statues and herbs, as well as hit jackpots if they get to find multipliers hidden in most of the casino MMO novelty games.

The game software is free to download and newbie players can learn the game mechanics by using a small amount of free BTC provided by the site for practice play. By way of chat messages, they can seek for a mentor from among the Dragon’s Tale community of experienced players. That way, those who are new to the game can get tips and advice on how to master their skills, and develop techniques that can help them amass the treasures they need to play the MMO casino games.
