The next barrier in online casino gaming is virtual reality. It has been estimated that the VR Casino Games market could be worth $520-million per annum within four years. Online casinos, in particular live dealer casinos, already do a decent job of providing the look and feel of land-based casinos. But a VR casino will be able to give players the immersive experience of actually moving through the casino, playing at virtual slot machines and tables and interacting with casino staff and other players.
Full VR online casinos will take a while to get off the ground because of the immense and complex coding involved. But the buzz is that the leading online casino games supplier will offer a product in this market very soon. Gonzo’s Quest is one of the most popular online slots titles from NetEnt and it is receiving a VR makeover for release in late 2017 or early 2018. The preview video that NetEnt has released makes the prospect look pretty exciting.
For online casino players not familiar with the slot game, Gonzo is a Spanish conquistador searching for lost gold in the South American jungle. In the VR slot game, the player will be immersed alongside him in a 3D environment, with game information on one wall and the game’s tumbling boxes in front. The game controls will unroll on a scroll in front of the player, while special effects and bonus prizes pop out from the other side of the screen along with showers of gold erupt to celebrate wins. There will be an addition to the gaming as well. The player will progress through a number of levels as in the popular quest-type computer games.
The successful launch of VR Gonzo’s Quest will lead to further developments in the future. The first is the creation of even more complex gambling games. The second is the assembling of individual games so as to create a complete VR casino.
The hardware required to support VR online casino games has reached a mature stage. It will adequately conduct the gameplay without technical hitches and should become cheaper at a fast pace. VR Gonzo’s Quest will attract the younger online casino games fans, which are already aware of VR in other fields. When released, Gonzo’s Quest VR will have the distinction of being the first real-money virtual reality slots game ever released. The game will be available to NetEnt players through its multi-channel offering to players at online casinos like InterCasino and Golden Palace.
