The Ethereum Blockchain is again ‘under attack’ of the FOMO gambling game lovers. The LastWinner game is based on a smart contract, which is now taking a lion share of Ethereum’s power, thus lifting the price of gas by around 20 percent.

The usage of gas has, correspondingly, jumped over 36 percent a few hours after. The data about this activity increase corresponds with the day-time in Asia.

Etherscan reports that the new LastWinner round launched offering a jackpot 40 percent bigger than during the previous game.
