The online gambling industry opts for VR technology

By Sophie Couard

A study by Technavio looked at the growth of online gambling through VR technology.

Technological achievements are continuing at a faster and faster pace. Virtual reality (VR) technology is also rapidly improving and more and more applications are using this technology. The online gambling industry is also growing in supply and it is expected that the use of these VR services will increase enormously in the coming years.

Study by Technavio

A study by the company Technavio, named Global VR Gambling Market 2018-2022, says that the VR gambling market will increase by 55% by 2022. In sales this should mean an increase of about €308 million between 2017 and 2022. The study also shows that although there are already some providers who offer such services, such as 888, SlotsMillion and William Hill, the players are often still a bit unsure about using these offers. However, that should change in the next few years, because the millennials are, especially, more open to new technologies.

VR in the next few years

Interesting and immersive slots and virtual arcades for VR devices.

There are more and more casinos dedicated to this new technology, developing new players and scenarios where players can experience an immersive gaming experience, such as the Sugar Rush VR Slot. For example, there is also the SlotsMillion virtual casino, where players can visit a virtual arcade with a VR headset and play at terminals or chat with other players.

We are curious to see what new innovations will be made in this direction in the next few years and will then tell you more about them.
