ICE Totally Gaming 2017
Well-known as one of the industry’s pioneers, NetEnt has always been a leading developer of innovative and cutting-edge online, live, and mobile casino games. As a visitor of ICE Totally Gaming 2017, you can experience NetEnt’s recent innovations straight from the company’s development labs.
Every year, NetEnt reveals one of its upcoming branded casino games, an event attended by many. This year, though, NetEnt is about to reveal two new branded games of which the first about to be revealed by NetEnt at ICE Totally Gaming 2017 in London while the second branded NetEnt slot will be announced around the same time tomorrow, 8th February.
As a pioneer, NetEnt has all the right to demonstrate its leadership in casino game development which has led to the success of the Swedish software supplier. NetEnt has always been one step ahead of its competition and I sometimes wonder if NetEnt is the only supplier that truly cares about innovation.
That NetEnt cares about innovation can be seen when you visit the NetEnt stand at ICE Totally Gaming 2017 where NetEnt underlines its pioneer status with a presentation of its latest developments within virtual reality (VR) and live casino.
Ever first real-money Virtual Reality slot
While I’m desperately waiting for the first new NetEnt branded slot to be announced, I’ll tell you a little more about the first ever real-money Virtual Reality slot to be launched by NetEnt in the near future. It was earlier today that NetEnt announced the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot to be the first ever real-money Virtual Reality slot. The same game that made it to the mobile casinos as the first NetEnt Touch® slot. Launched in March 2010, this NetEnt slot continues to be incredibly popular with the millions of players. This is why it doesn’t surprise me that Gonzo’s Quest™ has been selected by NetEnt to pilot this new game venture.
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.”
VR Casino Gaming
The rapidly-emerging VR market is a high-growth area and NetEnt will use this area to keep proving why the company is known as one of the iGaming industry’s pioneers. Therefore, the premium supplier of online casino games will showcase the progress it has made since revealing its praised proof-of-concept prototype 12 months ago.
NetEnt will commit to the development and launch of its first online casino game for the rapidly emerging Virtual Reality (VR) market with the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot to be the first in line. The use of VR is a growing trend among consumers and research shows that online players are starting to look for alternative, more immersive casino gaming experiences.
NetEnt eagerly tracks technology advancements and believes that WebVR technology will be mature enough to offer basic support for VR game-play 2017/2018. NetEnt’s ambition will result in the Gonzo’s Quest™ VR game which will be added to NetEnt’s current multi-channel offering in the near future.
