ICE 2018 is the conference of all conferences. The gaming tip of the iceberg if you may, it’s where all of the finest and most established gaming gurus come to play and showcase their goods for the coming year. Every year ICE gets bigger and better, this year was the largest conference in which they had ever done, at some point it’s probably going to be difficult to fit everyone under one roof with all of these new brands coming out.

Each year NetEnt makes it their goal to shine and showcase what is coming up in their magnificent game factory. NetEnt is a swedish casino games provider who are extremely well established and have ideas for slots which we could only ever dream of, but they make these dreams a reality in the form of a slot game, or a casino game fit for casino players from all around the globe.

NetEnt breaks new ground

Within the igaming industry there has never been a provider brave enough to take on the quest of creating a VR slot game, but these are precisely the risks in which NetEnt thrives on. Just the mere thought of even attempting to make this happen must seem pretty daunting, and the technology must be extremely pristine. NetEnt is continuously looking for ways to wow us players with their ideas and creativity, they are known for their branded slots and imaginative ideas for games, but it looks like they will have yet another tool under their belt stepping foot into virtual reality territory.

NetEnt showcased at ICE 2018 their brand new fully functioning and ready slot game Gonzo’s Quest in virtual reality. Yeah, that’s right guys, we officially have a slot game to try out in virtual reality. Gonzo’s Quest VR will be available to play through a web browser without any sort of specific integration needed for operators, or downloads of specific apps by players. This makes it that much easier for players to get the full experience of VR with a few easy and simple steps, because obviously no one wants to have to go through a step by step guide with about 50 different steps you need to take before you can actually start playing!

Gonzo's Quest VR will be mobile friendly

Another factor which excites us is the fact that you can even play it on mobile online casinos, and all that’s needed to do is to log into your chosen UK casino online on the actual casino, or via desktop, or mobile of course, then you should press the VR tab, plug in your virtual reality headset and kaboom, you are placed into the world of Gonzo helping him on his quest!

Not only is this new innovation something for players to play in awe over, but it is also amazing for casino operators to thrive even more with their offerings to loyal players. Thanks to NetEnt we can look forward to not only better Monday’s, but better days in general!

The CEO of NetEnt, Per Eriksson spoke about their new VR platform:

“As a first time-mover in virtual reality (VR), NetEnt has been at the forefront of igaming’s application of the technology since revealing its plans for VR in 2016.”

“NetEnt is continuously investigating in new ways of developing and distributing games, and firmly believes VR has the potential to be an important channel in the future.”

We can definitely agree with Per with this, VR no doubt has the potential to be an important channel in the future, we think that this will be the start of something very big, and soon enough many more casino games providers will begin their VR journey.
