CasinoReviews’ take on the role of VR in the online casino space

As the leading online casino guide in New Zealand, CasinoReviews has always brought to you the latest innovations in this space. The site is a big supporter of developments that enhance the experience of players in terms of quality of play and graphics, which is why there is a focus on providing information on cutting-edge breakthroughs in the online casino industry. Speaking about cutting-edge breakthroughs, Virtual Reality in online gaming is right up there.

What role does CasinoReviews believe VR has to play in online gaming?

At the centre of VR is a single need; to bring games to players in a way that would not require them to travel but would not take away from what they would actually get in the gaming room floor. This intent has always been there. Take live casinos, for instance. These allow players to play their games from home but watch as the dealers shuffle their cards. VR makes the live casino experience even better as players can get a multi-dimensional view of the tables. It also makes it easy for the players to hop from one table to the other or even play several games at the same time. For example, you could switch flawlessly between blackjack and roulette with this kind of technology. Slots and poker are also easy to play with VR. The angles are wide, the view is great and the aura is simply mesmerizing. The difference between VR and live casinos is that the focus is on the game and not the sideshows. They offer an immersive experience that seeks to heighten the consciousness of the players and make them feel as they would if they actually sat in a real casino environment-that and all the angles added to make it all the better than what a pair of human eyes perched on a table in a land-based casino would see. This is the kind of innovation that CasinoReviews wants to report about.

Latest advances in VR online gambling

Since the launch of the first full VR casino, SlotsMillion, more developments have followed. Afterwards, a casino VR poker app was developed, and things have gotten even better since. More recently, Gonzo’s Quest was converted into an online VR slot. There is now a sharp focus on Augmented Reality, which is an accelerated form of VR that targets not only vision but also other sensory inputs. There is a real feeling out there that VR and AR will at some point take the players’ excitement way over what brick and mortar casinos could ever achieve.
