Online game offering 'cash for kills' runs out of money and goes into receivership

Kwari, the 'cash for kills' online FPS which offered players the chance to win money by betting on their performance, has closed just a year after it launched.

The company behind game, designed in the UK but managed by Australian web firm Micro Forte, has reportedly gone into receivership.

The business had expected to make money by asking players to pay for bullets used during gameplay, but clearly the company ran out of ammo itself.
