The Future Of Virtual Casino GamblingBy: Rick Balding, Tuesday October 2nd 2018

Blog pages at online casinos now have more to do with other forms of entertainment than gambling. So it was refreshing to read a piece titled “Where To Next For Online Casino Technology?” at the Spin palace online casino web site. This blog will be of special interest to the technology savvy players that are now looking beyond smartphones and smart watches.
In the immediate future players can look at casino gaming based on Virtual Reality (VR). Though the technology has evolved to a fairly advanced stage, the steep prices of decent VR headsets are a barrier to mass commercialisation. Even with current technology VR can create an incredible level of immersion. A completely detailed and realistic casino environment can be recreated that puts live dealer online casino gaming to the Stone Age. A player can forget that they are in an artificial world. The challenge before VR casino gaming is to make the activity as convenient and as practical as possible. Wireless headsets already exist so you do not have to be tied to an electric point. One prototype described in the Spin palace blog required a large bowl shaped platform that translated real walking into VR walking. It is suitable for commercial centres but not for private homes.
The next step would be Augmented Reality (AR). Here the digital casino need not be created in a distinct virtual environment but would use the existing environment. It has been used to create Pokémon Go, where the players chase funny creatures about in public. On the casino gaming front AR could create a roulette table in the middle of your living room and you and your friends could place bets sitting on the sofas or easy chairs. The hardware is even costlier and will take somewhat longer than VR for commercial availability.
The writer at Spin Palace went beyond these technologies that involve removing the bulky headsets. The information and mechanism for virtual casino gaming would be available directly on a contact lens. This is not as outlandish as it may seem. Some companies are doing serious research into technology. Apparently, the contact lens does not have to be powered. Information would be projected onto the lens from an outside source. The final frontier, as of now, is direct neural interface. A chip would be planted in the brain that will allow you to play casino games in a realistic virtual environment without any other accessory.
