LiveinLimbo looks at the next big thing in live dealer online casinos, and it's becoming pretty obvious what that might be: Virtual Reality of course.

What is Virtual Reality

From LiveinLimbo:

Technology has transformed the online gambling industry over the past few years and it is a trend that seems certain to continue in the future.

Virtual Reality (VR) technology could be the next ‘big thing’ in live online casino games, offering players the chance to play ‘inside’ their favourite casinos around the world. A VR-ready computer and a suitable headset allows the user to travel into a virtual space full of possibilities. Players can even look out of VR casino windows and view the world outside in stunning detail.

With a real live environment, where the player can chat with both the dealer and other players, VR takes online gambling onto another level. Some operators have started to introduce VR, allowing players to enjoy live interactions with the different games to make the whole experience feel like being in a land-based casino.

NetEnt VR Casino

NetEnt is one of the leaders when it comes to live dealer casinos and now virtual reality. writes of NetEnt:

A heavyweight in the online casino industry, NetEnt was founded by Pontus Lindwall way back in 1996. This superior supplier of slot machines is synonymous with UK favourites such as Starburst and Mega Fortune Dreams, but in 2013, this pioneering-provider set out to conquer live casino. The company is based in Sweden, listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange and is licensed by both the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission, among many others. Over 900 employees, 100 hours of player interviews and 75,000 hours of real-time streaming per month can be attributed to the success of its live dealer product.

Won't Catch on Immediately

Most folks will not have the ability to enjoy VR due to the high costs of interacting.

Virtual Reality goggles will cost you in the area of $800.  Most computers can't handle the software at this time.  Those that can will cost a minimum of $1500.

One great feature of virtual reality is the idea that the casino will be customised to your own style of play. It will pick up on your behavioural patterns and favourite games, and it will be suited for your own interest. The will allow the casino to ensure their customers play for longer, and ultimately, will increase the profits of the organisation.
