VR gambling is a relatively new form of medium to come into the industry. However, with recent scientific advances and extensive research carried out in the field, it could be used for more than just entertainment. It could be used as an effective therapy treatment for problem gamblers! But it could also make things worse. Experts apparently can’t make up their mind. Is VR gambling a blessing or a curse?
The Legend of Shangri-La Cluster Pays launched back in September 2017, yet it’s quickly become one of our favourite NetEnt slots to date. As the name suggests, the slot boasts a cluster pays mechanism, which is surprisingly lucrative, as well as four bonus features. It also offers some of the best graphics we’ve ever seen in a mobile slot, and it’s fully mobile compatible. Read on to learn more about why we love The Legend of Shangri-La Cluster Pays, and why we think it may be NetEnt’s best slot last year.
Slotsmillion casino has just made its first ever millionaire who won £2.2m on Mega Fortune. Not only that, the player is from the UK where SlotsMillion has been operating for less than five months. The Gambling Commission issued a gambling licence back in September 2017. The lucky player had joined the first and still only VR casino a few days before the life-changing jackpot win, too. Find out how he did it and what you can do to repeat his success.
Twin Spin Deluxe originally launched in Summer last year, although it was at the time, a Unibet casinos exclusive. Earlier this month, however it was given widespread release which means that fans of this NetEnt game can now enjoy it at most online casinos. Today, we’re looking at the slot in detail and contemplating whether it would be a good candidate for VR makeover. Spoiler alert: it’s not! Read on to find out why we think Twin Spin Deluxe in virtual reality could be a bit of a dud.
VR gambling is far from floundering but is also far from blossoming as well. What could companies do, in the VR and gambling industries in general, to make users engage with it more. According to experts, there could be more of a ‘human element’ which allows players to keep coming back for more. What does this mean and how can it be applied to VR gambling? Let’s take a look and see.
The Phantom of the Opera slot is a recent release by Microgaming which is based on the 2004 movie with the same title. The game captures the theme very well and breathes luxury in every way possible. It’s a 243 ways to win slot with a huge maximum win, too. There are multiple base game bonuses and the special features where you can choose from three different bonus rounds. Most importantly, we believe that virtual reality needs this slot and it would look even better in it.
The best social gambling game in virtual reality as of today is Poker VR. That’s the new version of poker which has just been launched in beta by Casino VR Poker. The game has been drastically improved although older players at the casino will see the same basics in use. The improvements include better representation in avatars, customization, new socializing options, contacts system, levelling system, trophies, tournaments and more. The new and better poker is available now with Samsung Gear VR and will be adapted to other headsets very soon.
Thanks to the unique story and theme, Blood Suckers II would make a perfect VR slot. In fact, we believe that it would put other VR games to shame if NetEnt decided to turn it into virtual reality. Imagine exploring an ancient castle as a vampire, searching for a secret treasure guarded by an evil spirit? VR was made for games like this, but until it gets the VR treatment, we have to enjoy it the old way. Speaking of which, it’s still a good game as it is with two bonus features and big wins.
It’s kind of common knowledge that virtual reality isn’t as popular as it should be but that could all change in 2018 with the introduction of more wireless attachments, especially for VR gambling. Accessibility in new technologies is integral and when it comes to VR there could be more of it on that front. This is how wireless could be a good trend for VR gambling in 2018.
On this site we like to spend time thinking of the games we’d most love to see become virtual reality slots. We figure that if there’s two games which represent the NetEnt’s most classic games, it’s Gonzo’s Quest and Starburst. Seeing as the former is getting the virtual reality treatment, maybe it’s time that Starburst got it too? We look at what the slot looks like now, and how we envision it in VR.
