What changes with virtual reality compared to today's slot machines

The use of VR viewers combined with a new generation of slot machines will certainly have a Great impact regarding the game experience, which will certainly be much more "immersive".

In fact, the real novelty will not be so much to be able to "wander" in a three -dimensional virtual environment in which to choose a game as if you were in a real casino, but rather to have new concept slots available. We don't know how far the first projects will go, but The interaction with the games will certainly be very different from the simple "click".

The risks related to addiction will also be to be assessed: a more immersive game experience can be more alienating, with the risk perhaps greater than the hour of losing control by the players.
