Industry veteran Al King, alongside founder and creator Eddie Gill, Lloyd Sharp, Lizzie Wilding and Sam Bennett has launched Kwari, a new multiplayer online gaming service which has taken its lead from poker sites to introduce the concept of playing an FPS for money.
To ensure a fair game, players will be skill-matched and play online for real cash.
Money changes everything,” said Eddie Gill, founder and creator of Kwari. I wanted to create something that had more of a buzz than a traditional shooting game. The concept of playing for money is not a new one. However, these games tend to be an existing multiplayer game with a cash prize tagged on the end, much like clan tournaments, which means only a minority walk away with cash winnings – and usually a small amount at that.”
