Virtual Reality May Be Headed to Nev. Casinos

Dec 26, 2018

Virtual reality is potentially making its way onto the casino floors in Nevada. KUNR contributor Kaleb Roedel of the Northern Nevada Business View has the details.

These VR experiences may be fantasy, but the money on the line is real. International Game Technology, or IGT, in Reno has developed what it calls Virtual Zone booths for players to try their hand at archery-themed VR games. The company and casino industry are looking to evolve due to changing gambling habits. 

The company initially rolled out a pair of competitive VR booths at two casinos in Las Vegas in the spring. Currently, there are no longer any in Nevada casinos. The game received a variety of mixed feedback.

Officials with IGT say they are refining the product before looking at a mass launch.
