It’s a very exciting time to get involved with iGaming if you’re an online casino player. Huge technological and gamification advancements have been made in the last few years, with features such as Live Casino, VIP loyalty schemes and virtual reality making their way into the industry to really turn the table in favour of gamers.
Gone are the days where innovation and player retention were secondary requirements, and our favourite games developer NetEnt is at the forefront of this change.
To all of us enthusiastically waiting for NetEnt to drop their first virtual reality real money slot, we’ve got some good news from CEO and President Per Eriksson. When asked about when NetEnt VR slots would appear, Mr Eriksson said that it would be by the end of quarter 1 in 2018 at the absolute latest.
We announced back in February that NetEnt were making some serious moves with regards to virtual reality, as the company released information on a VR Gonzo’s Quest version. We didn’t have to wait long for a sneak-peek either, with virtual reality Gonzo’s Quest being demoed at the legendary ICE gaming conference. Here’s a little teaser of what to expect when it hits casino shelves.
If you’re unable to wait any longer for an online casino VR experience, head over to SlotsMillion now – the world’s first virtual reality platform.
As this new piece of technology is being actively worked on, we thought only one question: what NetEnt video slots would be perfect candidates for virtual reality?
Of course, we’d like to see all of them reworked in future, but we pondered which games would take precedent. Find out our top picks for NetEnt VR slots here.
If you’re looking for recent examples of NetEnt innovation, look no further than their Live Casino games which are now available on mobile. With 4G connections and WiFi being near-ubiquitous propositions in cities and towns around the world, you’re no longer confined to just desktops and laptops for your live blackjack/roulette fix.
Mr Eriksson expressed his pleasure at how Live Casino had been received since its launch, echoing his pride about the Chroma key technology included which he states is only done by NetEnt.
What’s more, he mentions that a potential loyalty scheme is being planned, dubbed real rewards, which will look to shower players with additional treats (such as free spins on slots) if their winning roulette number drops.
We can’t wait to see what NetEnt have up their sleeve next!
