NetEnt reveals Gonzo’s Quest VR

News on 7 Feb 2018

NetEnt has revealed its first fully playable, operator-ready version of Gonzo’s Quest VR (virtual reality) – a first in the industry scheduled to go live in summer 2018.

Using VR technology, the game is available through a web browser without any specific integration needed for operators or downloads of dedicated apps by players. Web VR makes the new genre of games easily accessible to any player.

HTML5-built, Gonzo’s Quest VR is a true omni-channel creation in which players simply login to the casino on a desktop or mobile device, press the VR tab, then plug in their VR headset to enter the immersive world of Gonzo.

Per Eriksson, CEO of NetEnt, said: “As a first-mover in virtual reality (VR), NetEnt has been at the forefront of iGaming’s application of the technology since revealing its plans for VR in 2016.

“NetEnt is continuously investigating new ways of developing and distributing games and firmly believes VR has the potential to be an important channel in the future.”

In addition to various game and product launches (see previous reports), NetEnt has announced a partnership with Gambling Therapy launching the charity’s new website at the Customer Protection Stage at ICE in London.

The new website is funded by NetEnt and includes an improved tool which provides practical advice and emotional support to people affected by problem gambling.

“… we are pleased to be able to use this high-profile occasion to underline the importance of responsible gaming to NetEnt and the wider industry. We are firmly committed to ensuring the highest levels of fairness, player protection and security,” Eriksson concluded.
