The game here on is pretty straightforward
  • The goal is to generate the largest number by sheer luck
  • The account whose turn it is to play is allowed to click the "Spin the Roulette wheel" button
  • Once he clicks the button, a random number is generated via the commit-reveal scheme
  • The winning number is updated if this number is the largest yet.
  • There is 30 second deadline before he loses his turn
  • If he loses his turn, anybody but him can "Skip Turn" for him
  • When everyone is done playing, the winner is declared and everyone can withdraw their winnings

⚔️ Side Quests

🐟 Integrate L2 solutions for ETH
While playing a game, the ETH network often feels slow, integrate a L2 solution like MATIC (this one’s already done for you, try others)
💰 Redesign the rewards system
Currently the user gets heavily penalised if he misses a turn, be more kind to your players or they might not come back 😢
