    I would imagine that pulling the handle of a VR slot machine would become monotonous pretty quickly. Imagine how much of an idiot you would look like doing something like that. Besides it's just not that entertaining.

    I think within 3 to 5 years VR casino's will probably be a thing. The VR headsets are allready quite cheap but imagine it without a headset. I might be wrong though but if you compare VR to the first mobile phones and the smartphones of today i reckon it's definately something not to disregard.

    No.

    I'm always mystified when people think that someone would rather walk an avatar around a virtual space (i.e. a casino floor) trying to find the game they like - as opposed to just using a search box, then one click and they are done. It is less efficient and pointless replication of the real world for no real benefit.

    I think VR will have to be a lot more imaginative than that if it is to avoid becoming the next 3d television set.

    That's true, but of course it's just very early stages. I assume that when people will be able to play a slot, see another person win on the slot next to them, sit on a real looking blackjack table with real dealer - then it will kick in.

    It's over twenty years since Lawnmower Man, not sure this is really going to take off just yet. Didn't 888 recently close their 3D virtual casino?

    100% No .. I dont believe it will be its a great advert for technology but needs a lot of work .. I got kicked on my ass playing a boxing game at ICE and was so confused bu the experience that i walked away feeling a bit let down and i feel that online casino players will feel the same it will be mind blowing to start but will wear off very soon

    I tried one at one of the conferences last year and I walked away and almost threw up. I don't get motion sickness so it was a bit weird for me. I didn't like it at all.

    I think can get away saying this mostly because neither one can likely hit me in the near future.

    I find it interesting that both complaints of not feeling well after using the goggles were women....

    You two aren't pregnant are you?

    Or maybe they aren't meant for affiliate managers.....hmmmmm

    No I haven't forgotten the statement from Miles, but he probably deserved to have his ass kicked....lol

    From my perspective virtual reality is an interesting thing for gambling - because as soon as a decent amount of players will have that kind of device, they could use it for a "virtual casino", too.

    There are already some fascinating 3D slots out there that give you a great experience, but i am still wondering if those do actually improve the GAMBLING experience. Here in germany the most played slots are quite boring standard 5 wheel games without any big features.

    Let's see what future brings, maybe there will be an unique advantage with VR for live casinos (that is the only thing where i really hope VR brings improvements)

    There have been some decent points on both sides and I think VR will be really good for the RPG side of gaming, where the player is immersed into a "virtual" world assuming the role of their character. In this case the fantasy is assumed and part of the game.

    When a person gambles....for real....and pays real money, and expects to win real money, I am not sure they will be willing to accept the fantasy part....maybe they will but I kinda question that.

    Yes it will be interesting to see what happens when VR headsets are supported for that Second Life game.

    If I'm pregnant I've certainly missed out on the fun to get that way.
