It is the Chinese New Year! January 8, 2016 marked the beginning of a new year according to the Chinese lunar calendar. The celebrations are not confined to Mainland China and other Chinese territories, but across the world with significant Chinese population.
According to Chinese Zodiac, each year is signified by an animal and 2016 is the Year of the Monkey. Other eleven zodiac animals include rooster, dog, pig, rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse and goat. Generally, new year festivities goes on for a fortnight with people wishing each other luck, good fortune and prosperity. With so many wishes and good luck charms going around, it is time to try your luck on a game that draws its influence heavily from the Chinese culture.
Dragon’s Tale, as most of you might know already is a Bitcoin gambling game built along the lines of a regular Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). The game is created by eGenesis, a company with plenty of experience in this arena. For those gamers, who may not know eGenesis, they are the same people behind another well-known MMORPG game titled ‘A Tale in the Desert‘. In Dragon’s Tale, gamers can roam around, interact with objects in the game, communicate with fellow gamers and play mini-games within the game. However, unlike other regular MMORPG, here players can place bets with real money (in the form of bitcoin) on those mini games and win some more money in the process.
Monkey Roulette is the most befitting mini-game to play while celebrating the Chinese Year of the Monkey. Monkey Roulette is a simple luck based guessing game on the Dragon’s Tale platform. Monkey Roulette involves letting a caged monkey out of its enclosure and hoping that the monkey lands on a fruit tile on which player has placed the wager. If lucky, he/she will hit a jackpot to receive a massive payout. Even otherwise, there are many community tiles that offers decent payouts.
Monkey Roulette on Dragon’s Tale comes with two different variants. The game also known as Silly Monkey requires the player to bet on a fruit tile where the caged monkey is likely to land as soon as the cage is opened. In order to bet on a tile, the player has to click on it and select the amount to bet. Each fruit tile has a different payout and if the monkey lands on the winning tile, they the player will receive the winning amount as mentioned on the tile. However, the winnings are much more if the player bets on a Jackpot tile. Jackpot tiles have different payout structure, if the monkey lands on Jackpot tile, the player will receive the amount wagered multiplied by number of times as promised by the tile’s payout ratio.
Another variant – Monkey Cage River or Pitless is similar to Silly Monkey except for a small variation. Monkey Cage River allows players to farm Lottery tickets and work tasks. While players can rake in a fortune when the monkey lands on tiles carrying bets, they can also lose their bet amount if the monkey decides not to land on any tile with bets riding on it.
What are you waiting for? Start playing Dragon’s Tale and maybe ‘Year of the Monkey’ may turn out to be lucky for you.
