While many are worried the experts have pointed out that there is no need for too much worry. Valve/ Steam makes it a point to review all the games on their platform. They also remove all games that violate the user policy.
At the current moment players can enjoy the X2Roulette game on Steam but it is possible that the game will be removed by the company in the near future. Especially as they could be held liable and subject to prosecution if they don’t.

If the X2Roulette game is not removed it might lead to the government shutting down Steam for violating government regulations.
