Online slot provider NetEnt has unveiled a Virtual Reality version of Gonzo’s Quest, and it’s expected to be the first VR slot game to hit the market.
Currently, browser-based VR technology is a hinderance to the launch of the game, but NetEnt is preparing to launch at some point in 2017/18.
A prototype version of the game is currently on display at ICE 2017 in London. It uses Samsung Gear VR, which suggests that NetEnt’s new VR games will be fairly accessible for mobile players.
Per Eriksson, CEO of NetEnt, called the game a “milestone for NetEnt and the gaming industry”, while also stating that VR “has a given place in the future of online gaming.”
It is likely that VR will have a role to play in the future of online bingo, but will it be adopted by the masses or will it simply be a novelty that people try once and forget about? That remains to be seen - it will be interesting to hear initial feedback from ICE 2017.
