Online gambling has come a long way from the first online casino with bad graphics and a limited settings abilities back in the 1990s, to very realistic games with crystal clear sharpness and animated scenes of today. Now we even have numerous live-casinos, which allow us to play and chat with real croupiers. But what is the next stage in the online casinos evolution process? Maybe it’s virtual reality!

Virtual Reality in online gaming

Virtual reality is in fact a new environment; it inspires, but also frightens and causes mistrust, just as most new things usually do. Some consider it a dystopia of science fiction and the idea of adding a virtual reality to online gambling causes terror among many politicians and anti-gambling organizations. Mostly because they are afraid to lose land based gambling business for good. But what is beyond doubt is the fact that the trend of development of virtual reality in the casino business is already set, although it will face many regulatory barriers. Some countries forbid virtual reality completely, but at the same time, others may introduce restrictive rules on it. Even the limited coverage of the consumer market will improve the state of the market as a whole.

Virtual reality of Slots Million online casino

In fact, virtual reality casinos are fully ready for launch. Slots Million, for one, is the first major brand that will offer players casino games with full immersion in virtual reality. Even though the Oculus Rift headset necessary for this technology is promised to become available for users only in 2016, Slots Million has already held all necessary researches and tests. One can play this casino’s games with or without glasses, use a keyword or game controller to control the games, or simply play their 3D-versions on a laptop. At the moment when this article is published, Slots Million virtual casino is available on Windows 7 and 8, so anyone can download the app and play certain games that will give the feeling of being in the VIP casino room.

What will change with the Virtual Reality

Virtual reality will allow players to virtually visit real casinos thanks to the 360 degrees visibility range, high definition and digital graphics. People will be able to walk around the casino rooms and take a seat at any of the available slots machines to play it.

Our scouts who already got the chance to test the new Oculus Rift headset say, that the design and layout of Slots Million virtual casino, which is located on the top floor of a skyscraper in a city is simply flawless. Everything looks very realistic and even the sound is in 3D. In the casino you have a bar, lounge, 40 slot machines and a giant screen next to the sofa. We would recommend that you try the “Jurassic Park” online slot. This excellent yet already familiar game will be presented in a completely new perspective!
