A Year Of Advancements For Online Gambling Industry

It is an interesting time, just around the end of the year when the online gambling industry reflects on the last year's performance and how the next year will unfold. New Year's predictions are already being formed by the algorithms as we speak. Looking back at the various accolades given the different online gambling sectors the list is formidable. As an example the second  Global Gaming Awards  2015 took place this year in September in Las Vegas at the Venetian Palazzo Congress Center, Las Vegas. This year like last year the well established and perhaps the largest software developer Microgaming won the Digital Product of the Year award for its 3D rendered Jurassic Park slot machine which is the first such product to use Parallax Scrolling effects.
Microgaming also won the Digital Gaming Innovation award for its  work in Virtual Reality and Wearable Technology revealed in online casino games such as VR Roulette. This game uses Oculus Rift wearable technology transporting players to a 3D environment where they can play virtual reality roulette. Movements are registered with the Leap Motion 3D Controller and it projects this information to the Oculus Rift DK 2 headset.
Chief Executive Officer of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever commented on the achievement,  “We are so proud to win not one but two awards at this highly prestigious and credible award ceremony! Jurassic Park™ is an incredible game and the fact that the experience is just as impressive on mobile as it is online really does blow people away.” A proud Chief continued to add, “But to win an award for innovation is particularly close to my heart as we have always worked so hard to stay several steps ahead of the industry, predicting trends and ensuring that our content works on emerging technology. For those that have seen our slots work on smart watches and experienced our VR Roulette product, it is an incredible insight into the future of online gaming. A big thanks and well done to my team for this huge achievement!"
