In both 2016 and 2017 at the London ICE gaming conference, NetEnt showcased a proof of concept for a potential new VR NetEnt slot. First we saw Jack and the Beanstalk in 2016 and then Gonzo’s Quest in 2017. At this years ICE, NetEnt proudly unveiled Gonzo’s Quest VR with the game expected to hit casinos during the summer of 2018.
Players simply log into their casino on a desktop or mobile device, press the VR tab, then plug in their VR headset to enter the immersive world of Gonzo. The HTML5 Gonzo VR game has been uniquely developed using real-time 3D. You can catch a sneak peak of what to expect from the game from the trailer below…
OK we admit the graphics look a bit basic but lets bear in mind that this is the first VR slot from NetEnt and it does have to work on mobile and tablet devices, which don’t exactly have PS4 or Xbox graphics cards in them. That being said, if the VR version performs as well as the original version of Gonzo’s Quest then we are sure that Gonzo’s Quest VR will be a winner.
The use of VR is a growing trend among consumers and research shows that online players are starting to look for alternative, more immersive gaming experiences.
Per Eriksson, CEO of NetEnt, comments: “We firmly believe that VR has a given place in the future of online gaming, based on our research and the trends that we monitor. We remain focused on delivering the ultimate entertainment experience by taking this first step towards developing our first real-money VR slot. This is a milestone for NetEnt and the gaming industry.”
