Shocking Roulette

Ladies and Gentlemen, place your betzzzzargh!!

Sorry, this product is not available.



For most people, roulette conjures up glamorous images of luxurious casinos, plush locations, Bond-esque blokes, blinged-up babes and infuriatingly suave croupiers. Electrocution, on the other hand, conjures up images of Old Sparky, the shocking demise of Jaws 2, dodgy wiring and licking 9V batteries in the playground. Poles apart, you might think...

Shocking Roulette empty

But just like countless other ostensibly contradictory items - peanut butter and jam, biscuits and gravy, Brian May and 5ive, Little and Large - the two have now been ingeniously thrown together to form one phenomenally enjoyable distraction. Shocking Roulette is exactly that. Shocking and, er, roulette. The idea is genius: up to four punters insert a fingertip into one of the sleek electric chambers and then somebody presses the start button. This sets into motion a buttock-clenchingly tense countdown sequence of beeps and lights that realistically imitate the sound of the ball on a traditional roulette wheel as it bounces towards its final resting place.

Shocking Roulette: number of victims

When the countdown stops, this malicious little plaything randomly delivers a full-on electric shock to one unlucky player. Well, it's more of a jolt really, but it's certainly enough to grab your attention and cause you to wince as you turn the air a delightful shade of blue. At only 14cm wide and 6cm high, Shocking Roulette is small enough to take down to your local, making it the greatest method ever invented for deciding whose round it is/who smells/who goes to chat up the tattooed barman/who stands on their chair, strips and sings "Oops I Did It Again" in the style of Joe Pasquale.

It's also a fantastic way to wheedle out the wimps, as you'd be amazed at the amount of people who pull out at the last second just to avoid a harmless jolt from three AAA batteries. Shocking Roulette has incalculable amusing uses - you'll never have to spin the bottle, flip coins or pull straws again. And let's be honest, any game that refers to participants as "victims" rather than players has got to be worth a look. A total buzz!

I bought this for a friend's birthday. The first shock certainly is exactly that, but after that you quickly get used to the power of the shock, even on high level and to be honest it isn't really too much fun after that. Go for the more powerful 'lightning reaction' instead.

Possibly the best game money can buy. Absolutely hillarious. Brings out the sadist in everyone who plays Buy now.

Guess who was the first victim, myself, but what a laugh - the whole office is totally crazy about this some people actually jump up as another person gets shocked. Double the fun - get one !

What a laugh! My mate bought me this great game for my birthday and so I decided to take it to my birthday celebration down the pub. The shock does not really hurt but is enough to make you jump and make your nervous when the machine is deciding who it's next victim will be. My boss even wants to get one....for when his family come down to visit! Great laugh, must buy.

I hate this thing. Me and my sister tested one in a shop and she got the first shock. To make sure I got the next one she set it to two player mode and insisted I shove a finger in each slot. Bad move. Sis was almost hysterical with laughter. What a nasty little gadget.
