Technology has come a long way in a short amount of time, as all sectors of the entertainment industry benefit in unison with every new development that occurs.
From TV to radio, film and video games, all areas of our entertainment landscape have been improved and for the most part, been made more accessible thanks to technological advancements such as the always developing internet, a rise in the quality of animations and the all powerful smartphone.
Next up on the agenda of technological landmarks is virtual reality, as VR has always got started and made its impact. The use of virtual reality is growing, already being incorporated into the video game industry in style. Nowadays, rather than going to the pub to chuck some darts or watch some football, trendy, modern drinking establishments are even offering virtual reality as a pub-bound pastime – play on Wizard Slots.
The rise and popularity has been remarkable and, now we wonder if it could be about to find it’s way into the online casino industry. Online slots is another feature of recent tech advancements that have proved to be superbly popular, as a fun and easy to play way of having a flutter online. Like in video games, graphics for the online video slot game have been improving with every release it seems and now, with VR the new go-to technology, could virtual reality be used in online slots?
Here are some possible ways in which this hotly hyped technology could be integrated into online slot games…
Walk in online casinos
With VR comes the most realistic way to indulge in video games yet and with this, online casinos could really come to life.
With the help of virtual reality, online slot games could be placed within ‘online’ casinos that you can virtually walk into and choose your game within. Rather than navigating menus, you could navigate a floor of different online slots and, if the choice isn’t too overbearing, pick your title of choice.
Spin the reels yourself
Long gone are the days of big levers being needed to spin a set of reels, as quickly the electronic and now very much online slot machine took over.
However, with such a lust for a retro or old school gambling experience, why not reintroduce the lever? Using virtual reality within the slot game, players could make the action of pulling the level rather than simply hitting ‘spin.’
More interactive mini games
One of the best parts of online slot games is undoubtedly the choice of titles that boast mini games and bonus features.
As fun as these features are, they could get even better using virtual reality. Mini games like wheels of fortune or random prize choices, would have to physically be done by the player themselves, creating a more interactive and super immersive online gambling experience.
Better still, maybe you will have to personally scoop up yours winnings from the pay tray – or hopefully you will at least!
