SlotsMillion to Get Virtual Reality Games
24 October 2015
Virtual reality online casino games have been demoed at various trade shows over the past couple of years, and several companies are working on products for it because it seems to be the next big thing in the industry that's not quite to the mainstream level just yet. SlotsMillion is one of the first to launch their own virtual reality casino, and it can be played with either an Oculus Rift headset or on your computer with 3D graphics.
Virtual Reality Casino Options
A total of between three and four dozen games are available, and that includes slots and some table games as well. This could very well be the turning point for players because of the cross-platform abilities to either play in 3D on your desktop or to use the Oculus Rift interface. This allows players who do not have the VR headset to get in on the action, and that allows a more inclusive execution of the new platform. That's a much better option than requiring people to have a headset before they play.
Up until now, the main platforms for online casinos have been the downloadable software, instant play software and mobile. Mobile could even be split up between Adobe Flash and HTML5. Now with virtual reality platforms starting to take off, we're going to be hearing about new VR releases soon enough. Chances are that it'll gain some momentum in 2016 and really hit the ground running in 2017 with regular releases coming out for the major software providers in the industry.
Shaping the Industry
SlotsMillion has over 1,000 different slots available, and that's something that really puts them ahead of the competition as it is. However, this new push into virtual reality gaming is going to bring them even further ahead, and it goes to show that the industry is continuing to change. Experts expect virtual reality to be the thing to really shape the industry into something new, much like mobile has done for so long. For now, there are a lot of exciting developments in the works, and it'll be interesting to see how trends change to accommodate the new coming of virtual reality play through casinos like SlotsMillion.
