virtual-reality-casino-gamesThe future of online gambling will definitely involve virtual reality. In fact, we recently discussed some predictions made about virtual reality (VR) gaming. But what exactly will VR gambling look like when it arrives?

According to TG Daily, VR headsets will provide natural motion every time your heads moves, allowing you to look around in a new virtual world. This closely mimics real life and tricks your mind into thinking that this motion is reality.

Relating this to online casinos, you’ll be able to walk around and choose games, or visit the lobby and chat with fellow visitors.

The Oculus Rift headset will be the leading way that users enjoy the VR world. It’s estimated that well over 10 million Oculus Rift headsets will be sold by Jaunary 2017.

Of course, each unit will cost $350, which is well above what the average consumer wants to pay. But some people will find the price worth it when considering the high definition and realistic experience that VR technology can bring to casinos.

Players will also enjoy multiplayer games through their VR headsets. We’re not sure exactly how this will work, considering that most online casino games are solitary affairs. One example could be the new gambling arcade games that are currently being introduced in Atlantic City casinos.

So when can we expect multiplayer VR games and a lifelike gaming experience?

The unfortunate thing is that VR gambling won’t become the norm for at least 5-10 years. In a report cited by TG Daily, the VR market as a whole is expected to hit $130 billion in 2015. And this is largely contingent on the VR market reaching its potential.

That said, don’t expect virtual reality casino games to dominate in the immediate future. However, we should have access to plenty of VR casino games within the next five years.
