Virtual Reality as the Future of Online Gaming
The gaming industry has always been one of the first to adopt the latest technology. For example, the number of games and players who like to play on smartphones is increasing every year. The number of casino applications and mobile casinos is also increasing. By all expectations, we can look forward to virtual casinos in the forthcoming future.
It is commonly assumed that virtual reality will find the most significant utilisation in the gaming and porn industry. However, developers such as Microgaming and NetEnt, are also preparing for a boom in adjusted reality, announcing their first virtual games three years ago.
The just mentioned Microgaming introduced the first-ever virtual roulette at ICE TotallyGaming in 2016, for which it was later awarded the best innovation of the year.
Modern online and mobile casinos are very popular, but they are still far from the atmosphere of visiting a real land-based casino. This is what virtual glasses technology could change. Players will no longer have to sit alone behind the computer but will be able to sit at the roulette table with other players and, above all, have fun with them. The virtual environment itself allows developers to unleash their imagination. In the future, it might not be a problem, for example, to play in Las Vegas in the 1950s, when the mafia mainly dominated the city.
Customizing the game environment and real-time communication between players are the strongest cards in the virtual reality deck. Given the current trends, it can be expected that visiting such a casino will not be just about gaming. For example, players will be able to complete tasks that unlock tables or hidden rooms with higher stakes, etc.
The gamification of gaming is currently one of the main goals of all significant betting and development companies. They hope that they will be able to attract the Millennials, who generally do not tend to play.
Disadvantages of Virtual Glasses
For now, however, online casino games do not dominate the world. It is mostly due to the high price of glasses and accessories, which are around $ 400 or $ 500. And this is only for the headset itself.
