In 2017 there was some outrage among gamers about the content of the so-called loot boxes that could be purchased by players. To prevent this dissatisfaction in 2018, one of the larger resellers has decided to add a gambling element to these surprise boxes, we announced on January 4, 2018. GamesDeal offers this Player Unknown’s Battleground (PUBGs) for a price of only £ 12.69, provided you want to run a 50% risk of getting a game key (serial key) for a random game.
Gambling for your games
Normally the games were offered by GamesDeal for a price of 27.21 pounds. It is striking that this price is slightly higher than the price that Steam itself charges for the games it plays (usually £ 26.99).
Conditions of this discount promotion
This discount offer from GamesDeal offers gamers who want to take a chance, the possibility to buy one or two codes. When they choose a code, they have the chance that they will benefit from a 50% discount on the price for the desired game. However, they also run the risk of buying a cat in the bag. If a gamer chooses two codes, then the gamer gets both the desired game and a random game statistically. The exact conditions of the discount offer are described on the GamesDeal website. It goes without saying that it is not possible to trade in the alternative games that you are randomly offered.
MCV takes a gamble at GamesDeal
MCV, a well-known website with game reviews, put it to the test. However, people were clearly dissatisfied. After it took some time for the PayPal payment from MCV to be approved, the editors of MCV were offered a random game. This game Hockey Space, does not cost more than £ 3.99 if you buy it yourself on Steam. An expensive bet!
