NetEnt Set to Release a VR version of Gonzo’s Quest
Swedish casino gaming software developer NetEnt has pledged to develop the first real money virtual reality slot game. This will definitely be a drastic move that will change the face of online casino gaming and how people experience the games. It can be expected that casino games will become a lot more realistic and vivid.
Many have claimed that VR technology will play a key role in the whole gaming industry. VR games have already been developed and the first VR casino app was introduced in 2016. Furthermore, Microgaming developed the first VR Roulette game.
The announcement that we can soon expect the first VR slot game which players will be able to play for real money will sure cause amazement among slot fans. The highly popular Gonzo’s Quest will be the first slot game that will be available in VR mode. Last year, NetEnt released a demo practice VR version of another one of their hit games – Jack and the Beanstalk.
NetEnt’s chief said that this will be an important step in NetEnt’s development. NetEnt has gained a reputation as one of the operators that is dedicated to innovation and new technology and this decision to direct their effort into development of the first VR real money slot certainly testifies to that.
VR technology has been an interesting field for many developers and after the Oculus Rift was released last year, that interest will only grow. Experts predict that other casino software developers will try to keep up with NetEnt and Microgaming and will make an effort to develop VR games of their own.
The players can only benefit from this ‘VR race’, as the games would become more realistic, authentic and playable.
