Since VR has dropped on the world industries are racing to get in on this innovative new technology.
So far much has been promised but what are the next steps in actually delivering on those promises?
Growing The Market Base
Firstly the market base is expected to grow which will allow companies to make cheaper hardware and software developers can start working on more innovative software. This growth is essential for the first few years of VR’s life.
What the VR experience can offer is so unique to casino fans and gaming fans across the world that it may take a while to fully catch on.
The current software that has been released shows a lot of promise for the casino industry with players able to explore vast virtual casinos in an immersive 3D environment.
Finding the right road to make new and innovative changes in a product or market is a tough thing to do. Luckily online casinos have the world’s best developers working on finding that killer app for the online casino market.
Most companies are trying to make a virtual online casino that you can stroll through at home using your virtual headset.
Working Closely With Authorities
VR developers have been working closely with world gaming authorities to make sure they comply with known laws and standards.
As an example, one of the changes implemented by a gaming Authority on a developer’s casino title was the addition of accurate clocks in the virtual environment. This in contrast with land based casinos that remove clocks so that players spend more time gaming.
This is a clear indication that VR technology working with gaming authorities can produce great results and innovation.
Making Cheaper Hardware
Another key step forward would be for the entry level VR gear to retail for a cheaper price. Currently the headset alone will set you back a few hundred dollars and that is not yet considering how much an up to spec computer will cost.
However once more and more people get into the VR world, the prices will certainly drop. Since the technology is still so new, the production is still quite expensive.
Inexpensive hardware will further entice new players to try out the VR technology on their favourite casino titles.
It is almost certain that in the next year or two, the VR industry will expand and start encompassing the online casino world in a universal way.
