What is it?
Rollercoin is a crypto mining simulation game. After signup, you create your character and you will have your room with a computer and racks for miners. To earn in Rollercoin, you need to increase your mining power – you can do it in two ways: you play simple minigames (think Asteroids, Flappy bird, Memory game, 2048..), or buy miners. It reminds of PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator, if you are familiar with that game.
Playing the game
After completing a minigame, you will receive mining power based on your score in the game. Most games are completed withing under a minute. As you progress, the minigames become more difficult and also more rewarding. In the beginning everything is quite simple, by level 10 everything becomes quite challenging. And in some games, even impossible for me (although this might be the result of my poor gaming and coordination skills). But don’t worry – even if you lose the game, the time you spent will not be wasted and your power will be increased based on how good of a result you got.
The power you earn will fade away over time. As you play more games, your power will last longer. Meaning, from the first games you will earn power for only first 24 hours, however as you progress and play more, your power will last for up to 7 days from one game. Great way to scale up!
When playing, you can choose to focus on only one minigame, but there is a short time you need to wait in between being able to play levels of the same game. Usually if you juggle between two or three games, you will not have to wait at all. You can play on desktop or mobile.
One fun thing about Rollercoin is that you can also see how you are doing compared to other players. There is a leaderboard you keep climbing based on your power. It is constantly updated and it is a great way to motivate you to keep playing. Right now I am near entering the top 1000 players and it is awesome to have this goal which helps you push forward.
Currently, there are 8 minigames in Rollercoin. New games are still being developed. Recently, a new game has been teased on their Facebook page as well as new features for the game, such as multi-currency mining and user marketplace.
For now, the only option for earning in the game is in bitcoin. Or rather, satoshis (smallerst part of bitcoin). The system distributes satoshis to players after “mining a block”, which simulates real Bitcoin mining. Your earning is based on how much mining power is in the Rollercoin network and what percentage of the power you are contributing. Usually, the block is worth 3000 satoshi and is mined in 5 minutes.
Basically, every five minutes you will receive a piece of a satoshi. From my experience, it will be somewhere between 0.1 to 1 satoshi. The amount depends on how much you play and how many miners you have. Play more – earn more. Simple.
Withdraw minimum is currently 10000 satoshi (0.0001 BTC) to your wallet, without any fee.
Good thing about the games is that the miners give you option of passive earning. But don’t be fooled, playing is still much more powerful and will get you more satoshi than miners, especially cheaper ones. However, in the long run miners are a good option since you can simply forget about the game and you will still earn some profit.
If you decide to invest in Rollercoin, be prepared that you will wait for a long time to get returns on your investment. Even though the miners are pretty lucrative option to increase your earning, it is not a quick option to get cash.
Rollercoin has also released their own token – RollerToken (RLT) which will be used in game and buying RLT can give you additional perks as an investor. However, I have found that it is not essential to buy it in order to enjoy the game. If you decide you like the project, RollerToken is a nice way to support the developers, but you can play and earn by investing nothing other than your time.
The bottom line
Rollercoin is a fun way to incorporate your love for games, retro esthetics and cryptocurrency. You can definitely earn some cents for it, or you can invest in Rollercoin and decide to support the project in the long run. As with most projects that we review which will earn you some cents – do not expect to earn a living off of it. It is an interesting option to try out and the bottom line is that it is a fun game.
