Evolution Launches World’s First Live Casino and Slots Blend in VR Mode
Evolution, the leading supplier of live casino content to the igaming industry, has announced the launch of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt, a ground-breaking online live game show and the industry first live casino to combine live and slots gameplay and combine it with the option to play in VR.
The title is inspired by the famous Gonzo character, which was developed by NetEnt and is the latest addition to Evolution’s live game shows portfolio.
The game can be played using a Virtual Reality headset and controller, increasing the immersive player experience. The players search for hidden treasures in a wall made of 70 stones. The famous explorer comes alive as an augmented reality character and joins the game as the host.
Combining the Best from Both Providers
Representatives from Evolution say that this product combines the best of Evolution and NetEnt and that they are excited about working together to take the most famous character in slots to live casino. They also say that they will continue to evolve gambling experiences and that this launch is an incredible landmark.
Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, said: “This is our first product that combines the best of NetEnt with Evolution. I’ve been excited to work with the amazing NetEnt intellectual property since the acquisition was announced and we are starting by taking the most famous character in slots and bringing him to live casino. This is also the first live game ever where players have such a high degree of control over their game strategy and the potential outcome. Unlike other games where the result is the result and there is nothing you can do about it, in Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt™ players take control as they go hunting for their prizes. This is a whole new direction for our game shows as we want to widen the definition of what a game show is – giving the player this level of control will attract a new audience to Evolution. We are continuing to evolve what the gambling experience can be, and this is an incredibly exciting landmark launch.”
