The entertainment industry likes to utilise new technology and then push the boundaries of that technology to near breaking point.

Whether it is film production, video gaming or slots, all these have helped advance technology further in recent years.

The gambling industry is a great example of an industry that has used pre existing technology as a base to greater things. When the digital revolution was well and truly established, in the 1990s, the spread of the internet into people’s homes was an opportunity that the gambling industry fully exploited by developing the first ever-online casino software platform.

This technological breakthrough led to another one being developed and this came in the shape of the video slot.

Online casinos did not only aid the development of the video slot, they also brought gambling to the masses and this is why we have more gamblers in society than ever. Slots also appeal to a broader audience than any other forms of gambling. With so many people playing pay by mobile slots, design companies have had to work flat out to keep up with demand. This has led to an abundance of choice for the consumer.

There are now literally thousands of games to play and the quality of the graphics and gameplay continues to improve year on year. With the video gaming sector a major influencer on slots games, new developments in this part of the entertainment world are usually echoed in slots games of the future. Video games have become fully immersive 3 dimensional interactive entities and this has started to filter through to slots games as well.

Future prospects 

Virtual reality slots are the next big-thing in the gambling industry.  The technology already exists but there are a few pitfalls that need to be ironed out before these slots become commonplace. These include adding further fuel to the gambling addiction fire and whether players can tolerate this new environment for long periods of time.

VR slots 

Virtual reality slots allow players to step into slots and immerse themselves within the game. The experience is an assault on the sensors as the sights and sounds of the games engulf the players. SlotsMillion is the first casino that allows players to play versions of familiar slots in VR. It is also the first virtual casino to offer VR slots complete with the gambling element in tact. Riftcasino app was an earlier effort but this had VR games minus the gambling opportunities. The slot games at Riftcasino were controlled by body movements, giving punters the full VR experience. SlotsMillion now allows customers to play slots like Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, Twin Spin and Mega Boy in full VR glory. 

Final thoughts 

Virtual reality slots promise to be mega hits with the gambling public, and early signs are encouraging. However, the sensations created by these slots may not be well tolerated for great lengths of time. There is also the possibility of venerable individuals losing track of reality altogether and becoming addicted to a virtual world.
