Revolutionizing the Virtual Reality Gaming
The virtual reality has been gaining popularity among consumers and the online casino developers are starting to show more interest in it.

An Improved Classic
Gonzo’s Quest VR has all the features of its previous 2D version Gonzo’s Quest.
Only this time, using the state-of-the-art Web VR technology, players will be able to experience this game in 3D.
They will be able to look around in a full 360-degree view. A paytable and other necessary elements will be visible at all time, with a simple turn of the head and without a need to pause/leave the game.
The game can be played on devices like Samsung Gear VR, PlayStation VR or similar equipment. The game could be easily accessed through a web browser, without any specific integration needed for operators, or downloads.
This VR release from NetEnt seems like only the beginning of what’s to come next, so the fans should be looking forward to more releases from them soon.
