Evolution spares nothing. Everything is affected by evolution and progress. Maybe a few things can be more resilient or could take longer than others but, sooner or later they will change under the pressure of modernity.
Technology is the first field where progress takes place, and also the most eloquent. Online casinos are a concentrate of technology and evolution.
First online casinos were poor both in the number of slot games and about the quality available. With the advent of technological innovations, most of the developers all around the world have chosen to give the newest technology a try so to test their appeal on people.
The so-called “one-armed bandit” slot machine is one of the oldest casino games. It was invented more than 120 years ago and it was originally made by wood and metal. Nothing more than a simple combination of gears and springs, considered extremely advanced at those times.
Through the years those simple machines have changed several times their skin, and nowadays we almost lost memories of those touchable games.
When the first slot machines landed online, people immediately appreciated the simplicity of having a game available at any time and to play at home.
Then the second step was the mobile. When mobiles became powerful enough to have a decent data connection and a fast processor, the borders of the house got broken and the casino became portable.
I-Gaming users are very demanding. This has pushed the manufacturers to create new attractions and new ways to retain customers and grow in notoriety. It wasn’t a long time ago when the first 3D online machine was created. Three dimensions to give the feeling of a real machine. Players could enjoy the feeling of seeing the depth of the machine and the symbols.
As we said, people are demanding especially slot machines’ players. So, the upcoming technology must have been applied to the online machine. Here it is when virtual reality comes.
Better known with the acronyms VR, it consists of a full immersion experience. The players are immersed in the game. The environment all around becomes “real”, the objects are suddenly multidimensional and interactive.
Thanks to new technologies people can live a superb experience, currently with the help of a few tools like a headset and gloves, in the next future just using a few projectors.
Virtual reality will become an available option for players who want to fully live the experience of playing and feel the adrenaline of being in the casino.
As we said above, a few branches may be more resistant to changes but it is almost inevitable to get overwhelmed by all of this.
While waiting for the next generation of slot machines, the 4D, we can now enjoy the constantly growing VR in online casinos. As it happens for all the sectors, it will be within everyone’s reach, even if now it looks very distant. Sometimes future and present are dancing together.
