The next big thing to hit the online gambling industry is virtual reality casinos and card rooms. Software designers are working at perfecting a number of virtual reality games being made available by a number of internet betting operators. One such firm from Malta, Medialivecasino has unveiled what it is calling the first live roulette game to feature virtual reality. Medialive began in 2005 as a virtual online casino game operator then proceeded to provide online casino games with a live croupier.
Virtual reality casinos and software gives the player a different perspective on internet gambling which is expected to attract the younger crowd to play and experience this novel approach to the process.
Medialivecasino’s head of sales and marketing, Angelo De Gobbi, said the new and interesting format may help online gambling operators attract a new generation of players.
De Gobbi commented on the launch, “Our aim is to find innovative solutions to conquer a new target of players and thanks to virtual reality we can finally attract millennials who until now were not very interested in live games,” De Gobbi continued to add, “This solution also allows you to retain customers by offering them a VIP gift box already configured to be able to enjoy the new gaming experience.”
“In the case of live games, rather than virtual reality, it would be correct to speak of augmented reality, in fact there is nothing virtual, throughout the game experience is based on real elements.”
Virtual reality online betting is in the early stages of its development with much more expected in the near future as the activity gains traction in a market place already full of exciting new gambling and entertainment choices available on the internet .
