How did Ludo King start ?
Released in 2016, Ludo King has become the first Indian game to cross 100 million downloads on Google Play which is also the modern version of the royal game of Pachisi.
What are the new features of Ludo King ?
Vikash Jaiswal (creator of Ludo King) said, “We are thrilled and excited to launch Quick Ludo and 5 & 6 player mode on Ludo King. With these features, our players will have a thrilling gaming experience. The 6-player mode will help bond with family, friends, and their extended family group. In 2021, our aim is to widen our user base globally with our new in-app features and gameplay.”
The creators of the game have rolled out two very amazing features of the game and that are:
- Quick Ludo
- Five to Six players at a time
The normal game takes about 15 to 20 minutes to finish. This new feature in Ludo King will let the players play the game in just 5 minutes. That’s why the name, Quick Ludo.
Now, you can play the game in quick breaks and refresh yourself, without worrying about the time.
Five to Six players
Yes, we know; many of you must be wondering that this feature is already available then why are we telling about it now ?
The answer is, this feature was only available in the offline mode. That means, only the local players could play and have fun with this feature.
The good news is, this feature is now available for online mode as well where the players can choose a total of 6 and start playing.
By the way, this also means that the bets will be higher and also the prize will be bigger.
