Internet betting giant Microgaming has showcased a Virtual Reality Roulette game as a demo that displays the possible future in gaming technology.
The game was showcased in the Microgaming booth during the ICE 2015 show in London earlier this month, and uses the Oculus Rift headset alongside a Leap Motion 3D controller to allow players to see their hands inside the virtual world. The game allows players to transport to an out of this world space and pits them at a roulette table with an android dealer.
The new game won the Innovator of the Year Award at the International Gaming Awards this year, and a video about the game has been posted to YouTube, which can be viewed below:
Commenting on the game and the awards Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever said, "What a tremendous accolade for our Research and Development team. They are constantly thinking ahead and pushing the boundaries, and deserve praise for consistently producing pioneering solutions that are effectively shaping the future of online gaming. This award, the second of its kind in recent months, further cements our status as the creative force in our industry. It really is a fantastic achievement."
"For those that have seen our slots work on smart watches and experienced our VR Roulette product, it is an incredible insight into the future of online gaming. A big thanks and well done to my team for this huge achievement!"
