Chace Race is a game that combines racing and in-game gambling, but how do you make a game of this type without breaking the laws of gambling? Chase Race is one of the first racing games that allows in-game gambling. The game has been in development for over 20 years, and was initially developed as a board game. Since then, the team of developers have gone through all the stages of getting the game legally accepted as a gambling game for digital platforms. We therefore reached out to Uffe Egekvist, CEO of ChaseRace Aps, to hear more about the challenges of designing a game with gambling in mind. Legally, companies are not allowed to include gambling in videogames, unless the game is skill based.”To allow gambling in a game requires an array of conditions. First of all, the game has to be 100% without chance in the game design. Therefore, dices, random chances, and asynchronous relations between players are not allowed” Egekvist explains. Additionally, it is important that the game allows for the “players to develop their skills infinitely. There must not be an upper limit for what a player can achieve in relation to winning the game”, Egekvist says.
